Cannabidiol (CBD) is quickly becoming one of the most popular supplements available on the market today. It is one of the primary compounds (called cannabinoids) that are naturally produced by the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, the most famous cannabinoid, CBD does not produce a euphoric “high” feeling and instead is much more beneficial.
There are many different ways to administer CBD into one’s daily life, one of the most popular methods being consuming CBD-infused edibles. This is the perfect option for those wishing to avoid the harshness that is sometimes associated with smoking or vaping cannabidiol. These tasty treats are such a great way to administer your daily dose of cannabidiol.
CBD Gummies make a delicious, on-the-go snack for anyone who has a busy lifestyle
But whether you prefer CBD edibles, CBD oil, CBD cream, or something, you have a choice. After all, there are two types of CBD:
- CBD Isolate
- Full Spectrum CBD
What’s the difference between these two, and which one is the best one for you? Let’s take a look.
Full Spectrum CBD
Full-spectrum CBD products is a hemp-derived product grown in nutrient-rich soil that includes all of the plant’s cannabinoids and other beneficial compounds. Legally, it can have up to 0.3% THC (a non-intoxicating amount). Full Spectrum CBD includes additional cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and more.
Why Choose Full Spectrum
- Full-spectrum CBD is an all-natural hemp product that includes all cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids
- It is not a processed product
- It offers users the "entourage effect" (the synergy of all cannabinoids)
- It has less than 0.3% CBD
CBD Isolate products contain only CBD and nothing else. They have no other cannabinoids whatsoever. Isolate products contain absolutely no THC. There are some downsides with CBD Isolate, including a lack of the entourage effect (the synergy between various cannabinoids). However, for CBD users, isolate is a better option for a variety of reasons.
At Diamond CBD our CBD isolate products are made from all-natural hemp and are pure and unadulterated, without any other cannabinoids or other compounds in them whatsoever.
Why Choose CBD Isolate?
- CBD Isolate is pure, unadulterated CBD
- It contains no other cannabinoids
- It has absolutely no THC
Which One Is Right for Me?
Should I choose Full Spectrum or CBD Isolate? Despite being a cannabis compound, many may be surprised to learn that CBD, in fact, does not produce a psychotropic or psychoactive “high” effect. Instead, CBD offers consumers a much more subtle feeling. Considering CBD’s long-lasting nature, it can provide prolonged effect throughout the day. So whether you choose full-spectrum or an isolate really depends on your specific needs. Either one is a great option for consumers wishing to enjoy their benefits without the psychoactive experience.
How To Enjoy Full Spectrum and CBD Isolate
Full Spectrum and CBD Isolate are both great and options for users and can be enjoyed in a plethora of different ways. Here’s a look at a few different ways you can enjoy each:
CBD edibles are a great way to enjoy both CBD Isolate and CBD Gummies. Mounting evidence suggests that cannabinoids like CBD are able to interact with other plant molecules in order to produce a more amplified effect. For example, lavender contains an aroma molecule known as linalool, which belongs to a class of compounds called terpenes. Terpenes are scent molecules that are responsible for a plant’s unique fragrance.
As you may have already gathered, the hemp plant contains an abundance of terpenes. This suggests that adding other beneficial herbs into your CBD culinary creation may help modulate the effect of the cannabinoid. Adding linalool (the lavender compound) is known for having amazing effects. Try mixing CBD into a lavender dessert or tea to amplify the effects. Pretty amazing, right?
CBD edibles like CBD oil infused gummy worms are a popular and easy way to ingest high quality cannabidiol.
While it is possible to purchase “ready to eat” CBD food products, many prefer to instead make their own infused cooking oils or butter – which are surprisingly easy to make. These oils or “cannabutter” can then easily be incorporated into practically any food or drink. Various CBD extractions can be added to baked and cooked goods.
For example, CBD crystals, which are made with isolated and purified CBD, are now easily available online and in many cannabis access points. However, it is important to note that isolated cannabidiol tends to be far less effective when compared to whole-plant cannabis products.
CBD Oils (CBD-Infused Tinctures)
Cannabidiol is an increasingly popular product that can be used for a variety of reasons. Known most commonly as CBD, it is one of the natural compounds (called cannabinoids) that makes up the cannabis plant.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most common cannabinoid and is most famous for its psychoactive effect – which causes a euphoric “high” feeling for consumers. Although, unlike THC, CBD is not a psychoactive compound. This trait makes cannabidiol an appealing choice for anyone seeking benefits without the mind-altering effects of cannabis or other pharmaceutical drugs.
CBD oil is created by first extracting the cannabidiol from the cannabis (or hemp) plant, and then diluting it with a carrier oil such as coconut or (more commonly) hemp seed oil. CBD-infused oils are quickly gaining momentum in the wellness community, prompting some pretty exciting scientific studies. The following are just a few of CBD oil’s natural benefits, backed by scientific evidence.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is available in many different forms, providing consumers with numerous ways to consume this potentially life-changing compound. CBD use has sky-rocketed in recent years due almost entirely to its benefits.
One of the most popular ways to take CBD is called “vaping” – which consists of heating the cannabidiol at high temperatures to the point of vaporization, which is then inhaled. Consumers use CBD vape oils for many different reasons. It has many benefits as opposed to other application methods, which we will discuss at length.
CBD Creams are believed to have many benefits, including improving overall skin care. Athletes love to use these products too. These CBD-infused products are absorbed through the skin where it then interacts with our internal endocannabinoid system to produce these effects.
CBD topicals are only applied to specific areas of the body, meaning that they are only affecting a targeted area rather than acting in a widespread manner. This allows consumers to use cannabidiol and benefit from its effects without having to ingest or otherwise vaporize (vape) the compound.
In the End
Whether you choose Full Spectrum or CBD Isolate depends on your specific needs. Diamond CBD has all types of CBD for all of your needs.
