Full Spectrum VS. Broad Spectrum VS. Isolate

  • Full spectrum pure CBD oil will contain trace amounts (.03%) of THC as well as a variety of other cannabinoids. 

  • Broad Spectrum pure CBD oil will contain all the cannabinoids with the exception of THC.

  • Isolates pure CBD are pure forms of the cannabinoid by itself without any terpenes or fats remaining. Because of the high 99%+ purity, isolates are typically in the form of a white powder.

EXPLANATION OF CANNABINOIDS

CBC: Cannabichromene


Helpful with nausea, reducing symptoms that lead to vomiting and is both an anti-inflammatory and non- psychoactive.




CBD: Cannabidiol


Most people have heard this term and have varied experiences. In theory, the cannabinoid CBD is best for nausea, inflammation, anxiety and depression with neither non-intoxicating or psychotropic effects. Studies have also shown promising effects of CBD to encourage cell metabolism and it's being studied as a cancer inhibitor.




CBD-A: Cannabidiol Acid


There is no intoxication; this is effectively being used for relieving the fatigue from arthritis, Crohn's disease as well as chemotherapy. The cannabinoid is also considered antibacterial and has shown positive effects with anti-inflammation and receding tumor growth.




CBD-V: Cannabidivarin


This cannabinoid is known for aiding the receptors that prevent epileptic and convulsive behavior with no intoxication. It is currently being studied for pediatric epilepsy!




CBG: Cannabigerol


This is shown to be useful for IBD (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and inflammation. In addition to being recognized as an antibacterial, it is shown to also block cancer cell receptors and is considered a vasodilator.




CBN: Cannabinol


The compound has a mild psychoactive response, slightly more so than CBD but much less than THC and tends to stimulate one's appetite. CBN is a non-intoxicating compound that is best known as the cannabinoid created when THC ages. For that reason, it’s usually present in high amounts in older cannabis. Studies on CBN have found that it may be a potent antibacterial agent. In lab settings, CBN was tested on strains of MRSA bacteria that are resistant to traditional antibiotics. Researchers found it to be a potent antibacterial agent against these resistant strains; it is also being tested as a neuroprotectant.




D8-THC: Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol


This does have intoxicating effects with an analgesic. It also is attributed to appetite stimulation and is a neuro-protectant.




D9-THC: Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol


As one of the better known cannabinoids in the plant, it has been shown to be effective in relieving glaucoma, depression and reducing nausea. Some patients have reported to its effectiveness with sleep apnea.




THC-A: Tetrahydrocannabinarian


Known for being an antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory and also being shown to inhibit different types of cancer growth. It is not intoxicating, non-psychoactive and effective with promoting nervous system and brain function as a neuro-protectant.




THC-V: Tetrahydrocannabivarin


Currently being studied for its ability to promote bone growth and found to have some psychotropic effects and can be an used as an appetite suppressant.
