Full Spectrum CBD, Ditch the Isolate and Get More Benefits with CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC
If you are a manufacturer of your own CBD tinctures, CBD soft gels, CBD gummies, or other CBD products, and you are looking for a CBD oil supplier so that you can make the best CBD products for your customers, then Green Glass Labs has you covered! Green Glass Labs has several formulations to choose from. For example, we have a CBD distillate, which is a higher refinement of crude CBD. This product is a beautiful amber color, and it's not only rich in CBD, but it's also rich in other cannabinoids, such as CBG, CBN, and CBC, to ensure that users get the full entourage effect associated with a full spectrum CBD or broad spectrum CBD oil.
If you are looking for a product that is full spectrum, Green Glass Labs also has a full spectrum distillate that contains 0.03% or less THC. This product is also very rich in cannabinoids, and we know that CBD, when in the presence of its full-plant profile, has a much higher biological response, which gives users the highly sought after entourage effect.
Because we believe that informed buyers are better buyers, we would like to take a few moments to explain to you why you would be better off going with a full spectrum or a broad spectrum CBD product, and why you should probably ditch the CBD isolate altogether. In the end, you will see that you get more benefits from full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD products.
Green Glass Labs is aware that these words and terms might sound like a foreign language to people who are new to the topic of CBD. Therefore, we would like to take a look at the following:
- What is full-spectrum CBD?
- What is broad-spectrum CBD?
- What is CBD isolate?
- What is distillate?
Full Spectrum CBD
"Full spectrum" simply means that the product has all of the plant parts in it. A full spectrum CBD product contains all of the vital cannabinoids, all of the plant terpenes, vitamins, minerals, and all of the other vital nutrients in the plant. Full spectrum CBD products contain everything! A full spectrum extract is basically one step short of just grinding up the plant and consuming it. To make the illustration clearer, think of full spectrum CBD as eating an apple raw. When you take a bite into a raw apple, you get all of the nutrients from that apple. You're not just extracting certain nutrients like someone who removes the skin of the apple, you are getting all of the co-factors and all of the synergistic nutrients in that apple! Well, the same concept applies to full spectrum CBD.
Full spectrum CBD products contain vital cannabinoids, such as CBD, THC, CBN, CBC, and CBG. Wait! "Full spectrum CBD contains THC," you may ask. Isn't that illegal? No. Because the amount of THC in our full spectrum distillate is less than the federally-mandated 0.03%, and all of our products are hemp-derived, which makes them legal in all 50 states. Therefore, you will not have a psychoactive response or experience the effects of THC if you consume a full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD oil.
Full spectrum CBD is widely considered to be the best option for CBD consumers because, in nature, nutrients work best synergistically, as with the illustration of eating the raw apple versus removing the apple’s skin, core, and seeds. There have been countless studies that have shown that full spectrum CBD oil is superior to the other types. Still, this doesn't necessarily mean that full spectrum CBD is going to be the best for you. Everybody needs something different. For example, you may be looking for a product with zero THC in it. Thankfully, there are other options for such people.
Broad Spectrum CBD
Broad spectrum CBD oil is very, very similar to full spectrum CBD oil. The main difference between the two types of CBD oil is that broad spectrum CBD doesn't contain any THC whatsoever. Again, broad spectrum CBD contains all of the vital cannabinoids, such as CBN, CBG, CBC, and so-on. It also contains all of the plant terpenes, vitamins, etc. It just doesn't contain the THC that is found in full spectrum CBD. If you are someone who is concerned about testing positive for THC, or if you have had a bad experience in the past with THC, then you probably want a product with zero THC just to be safe.
Broad spectrum CBD products will give you the benefits of all of the other cannabinoids and whole plant matter without even trace amounts of THC present! You're going to get the same entourage or synergistic effect with broad-spectrum CBD as you would with full spectrum CBD, too. This means that all of the nutrients in the plant are going to be working together with all of the co-factors. This means, in part, that your body is going to be able to absorb and utilize broad spectrum CBD more effectively than a CBD isolate product.
CBD isolate is a very pure form of CBD. In fact, CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD, coming in at 99%+ CBD. It is a white powder extract, and as its name indicates, CBD isolate is isolated CBD or CBD removed from all of the other compounds in the plant. In other words, if you consume CBD isolate, you won't get any of the other cannabinoids, such as CBG, CBC, and CBN. Likewise, you won't be getting any vital nutrients, minerals, vitamins, etc.
Undoubtedly, there are a lot of potential benefits of just using CBD by itself. However, if you take away the synergistic co-factors and the entourage effect, then the CBD may not work very well for you, and you will probably find that you have to consume a lot of it to get any noticeable results. There are a couple of things that you can do to bring back that entourage effect if you are willing to do the work.
For example, you could add your CBD isolate in with a carrier oil that will help to create that coveted entourage effect. The other thing that you could do to bring back the entourage effect, especially if you are vaping or selling CBD vapes, is to add in the plant terpenes with your CBD isolate. This will definitely help to bring back the entourage effect in full swing!
However, as you will see, there are far greater benefits that come from using a full spectrum or broad spectrum CBD extract. Therefore, Green Glass Labs recommends that you strongly consider ditching the CBD isolate and gain more benefits with a full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD product.
Note, CBD isolate isn't bad. It just needs to be in a formula to create the entourage effect that makes CBD work so well. Now, if you were using CBD for your pet cat, you would probably want to use a CBD isolate, as the other ingredients in a full spectrum or broad spectrum CBD product might be too much for your furry friend. Cats have been known to have sensitivities to these other ingredients, so you should always, always, always consult with your veterinarian before putting your pets on any kind of CBD product!
Just as broad-spectrum CBD oil is very similar to full spectrum CBD oil, so too is CBD distillate similar to CBD isolate. Through this process of distillation, the manufacturers can isolate specific cannabinoids for extraction. This leads to very pure cannabinoid products. For example, you may have heard of CBN distillate. Distillation allows for the separation and extraction of CBN from all of the other 113 compounds in the hemp plant. Who would benefit from a distillate product?
CBD consumers who want to pick and choose which compounds that they use specifically would benefit greatly from CBD distillate. Sticking with the example of CBN, you might find a person who says, "Wow, I am very interested in the powers and benefits of CBN. It's great for sleep, it's an anti-bacterial, and it is a mild sedative. I'm not really interested in CBD, THC, CBG, CBC, or any of the other terpenes and vitamins found in the hemp plant. I just want to take CBN."
Also, CBD isolates or other cannabinoid isolates can be great for people who are allergic to plant terpenes. At the same time, if you can take the plant terpenes, these are super-beneficial, and they help greatly to create the entourage effect! Again, all of the nutrients, flavonoids, and all of the other good ingredients that you'll get with full-spectrum or broad-spectrum hemp extract.
Making Sense of this Information
Full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, CBD isolate, and CBD distillate, these are the four primary kinds of CBD oil that you can find on the market today. Green Glass Labs recommends that you make sure you know how to read your labels properly so that you know what you are buying. Also, make sure you purchase your products from a reputed supplier like Green Glass Labs, so you know that what is on the label is actually what's in the bottle.
Green Glass Labs also recommends that you stay away from the CBD isolates unless you know how to create a formula that will help to bring back the entourage effect lost during the CBD isolate extraction process. Even if you know how to do this, it would be a little time consuming and perhaps expensive to do so. Also, by adding raw CBD extract to an existing formula, you could potentially throw the synergy of that formula out of whack. The fact is; users get a much better experience from the full spectrum and broad spectrum oils.
As a CBD user, you might be turned off to the idea of paying a bit more for full-spectrum and broad-spectrum extracts, but you would actually save more money in the long-run by using these products. Even though CBD isolate is much, much cheaper, you would have to use a lot more of it to achieve any kind of results or benefits, so you would wind up spending more money in the end by using a CBD isolate product.
