Full Spectrum CBD vs Broad Spectrum CBD vs Isolate
Full Spectrum CBD
Full Spectrum CBD is product made using the whole cannabis plant and all its molecules. This form will give patients the full plant effect or entourage effect, all molecules working together to resolve the issues on which the user is focused.
Now this isn’t to say it’s the best choice for everyone!
Full Spectrum also means that the products contain at least some levels of THC so for anyone that is highly sensitive to THC and doesn’t want to worry about passing a drug test this might not be your first choice.
All products endorsed by QOL are federally legal and contain less than 0.3% THC. Those figures are confirmed by credible independent 3rd party studies by SC Labs. Those are defined in the “Endorsements” section of this website.
Broad Spectrum CBD
Contains all the same molecules as Full Spectrum except THC. While this may seem like the best CBD to take a lot of studies have shown that the effects of Full Spectrum CBD are magnified greatly compared to Broad Spectrum so it really depends on what ailments you are trying to benefit and what your personal goals are with CBD. Benefits to Broad Spectrum are that you will receive the benefits of the entourage effect and you don’t have to worry about any negative effect from THC.
CBD Isolate is over 99% pure CBD – this means that all other components of the cannabis plant have been removed and only CBD remains. Unfortunately, most studies have shown that CBD Isolate alone does not have the therapeutic benefits as the other CBD types because you lose the entourage effect and therefore are not consuming CBD as nature intended.
CBD isolates are beneficial to science as they allow scientist to work with pure CBD for test studies, but most CBD Isolate products will add Terpenes, Flavonoids and other additives to create effective products.
Now keep in mind that NO CBD product except Epidiolex has been approved by the FDA and therefore NO CBD product can claim to cure or prevent any disease so any product claiming guaranteed effects is falsely advertising. https://www.fda.gov/news-events/public-health-focus/fda-regulation-cannabis-and-cannabis-derived-products-including-cannabidiol-cbd
