CBD products are actual simpler than they seem. They fall into 3 different categories:
1. Isolates –. ZERO THC
2. Broad Spectrum- Zero THC
3.Full Spectrum - Some THC (less than 0.3%), PLUS CBN, CBG, CBN
Crystalline isolates look like little salt crystals, full spectrum oil looks golden and see through, unrefined full spectrum is very DARK, thick, and cloudy. All CBD products fall into one of these 3 categories.
Crystalline isolate products- Through a special C02 extraction process, the CBD is pulled from the hemp plant, so you don’t experience THC or other compounds in your products, they have zero taste and zero chance of failing a drug test since there is zero THC, only CBD.
Downside is that since they are so stripped of all the plants nutrients, the products are weaker and could take a lot of product to feel the CBD effects.
Full spectrum products - Are less refined than crystalline isolate products and contains naturally-occurring organic compounds. This includes a trace amount of THC (.3%) and other terpenes that the plant grows with. THC amplifies the effects of CBD and makes the product much more effective (the amount of THC and Terpenes in full spectrum CBD is not enough to create a psychoactive result).
Downside is that there is a small drug test fail risk and the taste can be pretty earthy if not flavored properly.
UNREFINED full spectrum products – Contains some THC (.3%) to amplify the effects of the CBD, and many OTHER cannabinoids and plant nutrients like CBN, CBG, CBN, CBDV, terpenes, plant sterols, omegas 3,6,9, etc., it is raw and dark and full of nutrients.
Downside is that there is a small risk of drug test failing just like all CBD full spectrum products and the taste can be earthy if not flavored properly by a good company who makes it.
