What are the different forms of CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a molecule extracted from hemp, commonly called cannabis. Unlike THC , the main psychotropic molecule of the latter, CBD does not have a narcotic effect and does not cause dependence.
When we consume CBD, we benefit from the properties of hemp without losing control of the mind because it does not cause psychoactive effects.
CBD has become a natural alternative to improve daily well-being. It can be consumed at any time of the day, it all depends on individual needs.
How is CBD consumed?
Currently, products containing CBD are offered in several forms such as CBD oil , e-liquid, capsules, cosmetic products and even food products. CBD oil is considered the most effective form to benefit from a better relaxing effect. However, it is strongly recommended not to smoke this oil because its combustion creates carcinogenic compounds.
CBD diffuses more quickly in the body if consumed sublingually, inhalation and ingestion. Indeed, the way cannabidiol is taken has an influence on its action in terms of intensity and duration.
When we look at the composition of CBD-based products, we distinguish three forms which are full spectrum, broad spectrum and isolate.
- Full spectrum CBD
Full-spectrum CBD comes from the complete extraction of hemp (flowers, leaves, seeds & stems). In this extraction, we find all the cannabinoids (CBD, CBN , CBG, etc.), terpenes, vitamins, omegas, flavonoids and fiber. All these components act in synergy with the aim of accentuating the desired effect.
In this high concentration of cannabinoids, it is possible to find traces of THC (the main active molecule of cannabis) which is responsible for the high effects caused by the consumption of marijuana.
There is therefore a risk that full-spectrum CBD may not comply with regulations.
- Broad Spectrum CBD
Broad-spectrum CBD is very similar to full-spectrum CBD because during the process all parts of the hemp plant are also extracted.
The difference between these two oils is that for broad spectrum CBD the THC is removed. Not containing THC, broad-spectrum CBD is therefore legal in France.
- CBD isolate (CBD isolate)
CBD isolate is an extraction of pure CBD (allowing crystals to be obtained), meaning that it is isolated from all other cannabinoids, it is the purest form of CBD. This is the most concentrated product in CBD, in fact the isolate is 100% pure, its dosage is carried out precisely. Isolate is a perfect product to obtain a precise and guaranteed dosage, in addition, it does not contain THC.
Which form of CBD to choose?
Cannabidiol can affect people differently, so it's difficult to say that one form is better than another. Full-spectrum CBD will benefit from an entourage effect that can be effective for certain pathologies, the isolate will allow you to very precisely dose your CBD consumption with a completely pure product without any trace of THC. The latter will be particularly favored in the preparation of food or cosmetic products.
