What is Full Spectrum CBD?

CBD Isolate vs. Full Spectrum CBD

CBD, also known as hemp extract, is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Within the cannabis plant, there are many other cannabinoids, including CBD (cannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol), or CBC (cannabichromere). CBD Isolate, or hemp extract isolate, refers strictly to purified CBD that has been separated and isolated from all other cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Full spectrum CBD, or full spectrum hemp extract, refers to the whole cannabis plant and contains all the cannabinoids in the plant. 

The Benefits of Full Spectrum Hemp Extract

It used to be thought that CBD Isolate was the best option in order to receive the benefits of CBD. However, recent studies have shown that the benefits of the additional cannabinoids in the cannabis plant are greater than those benefits seen in just CBD isolate. A study completed in 2015 found that the benefits of full spectrum CBD outweighed those of CBD isolate. Researchers looked at two different groups of mice, one received CBD Isolate and the other full spectrum CBD. The group receiving full spectrum CBD saw greater relief. Additionally, the group of mice receiving full spectrum CBD saw greater relief with increased dosage, whereas the mice receiving CBD isolate did not see increased relief with greater dosage. 

While there are benefits of CBD isolate, full spectrum hemp extract can provide more benefits and help with a range of issues and symptoms. Below, you can learn more about the specific benefits of each cannabinoid in full spectrum hemp extract. The graphic was originally found here
