buyer's guide

Full-Spectrum CBD

Full-spectrum CBD includes a comprehensive profile of other naturally-occurring cannabinoids found in hemp. The total cannabinoid range is 80% to 93% with the following active compounds: CBD, CBDa, d9 THC, CBG, CBC, THCa, CBN, and naturally-occurring terpenes. With less than 0.3% of THC.

Full-spectrum products offer optimized therapeutic benefits due to the inclusion of other cannabinoids and terpenes. The cannabinoids and terpenes work harmoniously together offering both exclusive and overlapping benefits, providing the widest range of potential benefits of cannabis. With less than 0.3% THC, there are no mind-altering effects.

Although the THC content is minimal, it is enough to potentially trigger a positive result in drug testing. Customers concerned about CBD and drug testing should not take full-spectrum products.

Broad-Spectrum CBD

Broad-spectrum CBD includes a 70% to 85% cannabinoid range that is naturally-occurring within hemp, but has had the THC completely removed. The active ingredients typically found in a broad-spectrum product are CBD, CBN, CBG, CBDV, and naturally-occurring terpenes.

 

Customers can experience the health benefits tied to inclusive cannabinoid therapy without jeopardizing THC ingestion. Great for those concerned with drug testing but want the benefits from other cannabinoids.​

CBD Isolate

CBD isolate doesn’t include any other cannabinoids and is 99+% pure CBD.

  • With 0% THC, customers can safely consume this product without worrying about drug testing. Even though 0.3% THC content is legal across all 50 states, CBD isolate provides a safe option that is guaranteed legal federally.

  • CBD isolate is preferable for customers who don’t enjoy the taste of hemp extract and would like something flavorless. The lack of flavor may make it a better choice for edibles and beverages.

  • While isolated CBD will still offer therapeutic and medicinal benefits, customers won’t benefit as much from an isolate product when compared to full-spectrum or broad-spectrum.

Water-Soluble CBD

Water-soluble CBD liquid features liposomal microemulsion and nano-sized microemulsion technology for optimal bioavailability. The liquid form of water-soluble CBD does have a slightly bitter taste, making it important to consider when formulating your own products. It does have a milky color, another factor to consider.

 

Water-soluble CBD liquid is optimal for drink products, bottled beverages, and tinctures, but is very effective as a topical additive as well.
