Full-Spectrum CBD vs. CBD Isolate: Differences and Benefits

Full-Spectrum CBD vs. CBD Isolate: Differences and Benefits

If you’re a new CBD user or interested in trying CBD, it’s important to note that there are three types of CBD: CBD isolate, full-spectrum CBD, and broad-spectrum CBD. You might be wondering what the difference between the three is, so in this blog, we’ll dive deeper into their differences and benefits. 

CBD Isolate 

CBD isolate is known as the pure form of CBD, which means it does not contain any cannabis plant compounds. It typically comes from hemp plants and usually has very low amounts of THC. This type of CBD is much more refined and goes through extra processing compared to the other two types of CBD. 

Some benefits include:

  • can be more suitable for first time CBD users 
  • no taste or odor
  • more refined
  • offers health benefits 

Full-Spectrum CBD

Full-spectrum CBD is an extract that contains other compounds of the cannabis plant, such as terpenes and other cannabinoids. It can contain up to 0.3% of THC, which is the part in the cannabis plant that produces a “high.” But even then, this amount is not enough to have psychoactive effects. 

A significant difference is that it is less processed and more natural as opposed to CBD isolate. Full-spectrum CBD is also said to be more effective for pain. 

Some health benefits include:

  • anti-seizure
  • muscle relief
  • helps anxiety
  • pain relief
  • reduces inflammation
  • antioxidant

Broad Spectrum CBD 

Broad-spectrum CBD is very similar to full-spectrum CBD because it contains some other cannabis compounds. However, there is very little to no THC in broad-spectrum CBD – even less than the 0.3% in full-spectrum CBD products. Essentially broad-spectrum CBD is the middle ground between CBD isolate and full-spectrum CBD. 

Some health benefits include:

  • antibiotic 
  • antiseizure 
  • reduces inflammation

Although there are many benefits for CBD use, there is still more research to be done regarding the health benefits and effects of all three types of CBD. Please discuss using CBD with your doctor or healthcare provider.
