The Different Types of CBD
What are the Different Types of CBD?
Which CBD should you chose?
At The CBD Dispensary, we aim to give you the information you need to make an informed choice. We want you to know exactly what you are buying, where it comes from and why you are buying it.
For this reason, we write numerous blogs to educate you on CBD. This blog is no different. We thought we should dial it right back and tell you about the different types of CBD. As a result of knowing this you can decide which one will suit you and your needs best.
How will CBD help a hangover?
CBD isolate is one of the 3 different types of CBD. This is purely just CBD. It is filtered down aggressively to remove terpenes and THC. However, this doesn’t mean that it isn’t as good. CBD isolate has some interesting research on helping with a number of conditions and ailments. This might be ideal if you work somewhere with rigorous and sensitive drug testing which might detect trace amounts of THC.
Full Spectrum CBD
At the other end of the spectrum is full-spectrum CBD. This one of the different types of CBD does contain THC in very small amounts. In the UK the legal limit is 0.2% which is not enough to get you high. The reason why it contains the THC is due to the way in which it is extracted from the plant. The extraction process is much less aggressive and therefore maintains terpenes and a little THC. The terpenes will offer their own health and wellbeing benefits, from helping with anxiety, headaches, insect bites and more. If you want to learn more about terpenes you can read about them here.
Broad Spectrum CBD
Next on the list of different types of CBD is broad-spectrum CBD. This is a halfway point between CBD isolate and full-spectrum CBD. It contains terpenes, however, no THC is present. This might be good for you if you do have the sensitive drug testing, but also want to enjoy the benefits of terpenes.
Full-spectrum CBD does contain THC in very small amounts. In the UK the legal limit is 0.2% which is not enough to get you high.
Drug testing and the different types of CBD
In this blog, we have mentioned drug testing. CBD is legal and therefore would not show up on a drug test, as they’ll be looking only for illegal substances. However, THC is illegal. If you have some seriously sensitive drug testing then there is a small possibility that it could show up, even though full-spectrum CBD is legal. If you want to rest easy that you won’t be pulled up on a drug test then opt for CBD isolate or broad-spectrum CBD.
Which CBD is best?
The best one is whichever works for you. We all have different reasons for using the cannabinoid and various ailments and conditions to get relief from. If you are not sure why don't you give each a try to see which one is right for you.
