We at Elite Organics are committed to being the #1 online retailer for THC-Free Broad-Spectrum CBD. If you’re just embarking on your CBD journey, you will likely come across terminology that is somewhat confusing. In order to understand what Broad-Spectrum CBD is, you should become familiar with the two most used forms of CBD extract; CBD Isolate and Full-Spectrum CBD. Allow us to assist.
CBD Isolate is isolated CBD, hence the name. Basically, it is CBD in its purest form. When the CBD is first extracted from the hemp plant, all of the plant material is still present. In order to isolate the CBD, all of the plant matter, compounds like chlorophyll, oils, and waxes that are part of the hemp plant, need to be removed leaving only CBD. This is accomplished through a purification process. The extract is first filtered, removing all excess plant material. Next, what’s known as the “winterization process” takes place. The winterization process removes any plant waxes or other material that may have been left behind during the filtration process. The end result is a fine, white powder that is 99% CBD. CBD isolate does not contain any THC, the cannabinoid known for its psychoactive effects, making it a go-to option for anyone who is sensitive to THC or is subject to regular drug tests.
Because CBD isolate is odorless and flavorless, it can be used in several ways. For a daily dose of CBD, you can put some directly under your tongue for quick absorption. After about one minute, the CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream through the mucus membranes under your tongue. CBD isolate can also be baked into food, mixed into shakes or smoothies, or mixed into various topicals such as oils or lotions.
Full-spectrum CBD is the complete opposite of CBD isolate. CBD is just one of over 100 cannabinoids that have been identified in the cannabis plant. Full-spectrum CBD contains all of those cannabinoids, including THC. To be legal for consumption nationwide, full-spectrum CBD products must have a THC content of less than 0.3%. Researchers have found that when all of the cannabinoids work together, it is more effective than one cannabinoid working alone. The different compounds magnify the effect of the others, making the overall plant material, and eventually the CBD extract, that much more effective.
In addition to the over 100 cannabinoids, full-spectrum CBD oil also includes beneficial plant components such as essential vitamins and minerals; fatty acids like Omega-3 and Omega-6; proteins and fibers; chlorophyll; terpenes (unsaturated hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of the cannabis plant); and flavonoids (chemicals that are responsible for a plant’s color, smell, and flavor).
