Solitary or Synergy: The Difference Between CBD Isolate and Full Spectrum CBD Oil

July 23rd, 2018

Since the existence of early man, there has been pain and discomfort. And ever since then, there have been methods of alleviating them, all with varying degrees of success. For instance, natural remedies, including everything from exposure to leeches, bee stings, and even cutting holes in the head, have all been used to treat physical distress.

Thankfully, our pain relief treatments in 2018 have become more sophisticated than using electric eels to “shock” the pain out of your body. As we all know by now, the quality CBD products we feature at Innovative Separations have allowed individuals to find relief to a host of physical conditions. However, there has been some curiosity over the various kinds of CBD products available for consumers.

Here’s a quick guide on the difference between CBD isolate and full spectrum CBD.

A Solitary Solution: CBD Isolate

CBD isolate is an extraction which simply consists of 100% cannabidiol compound, nothing else. This means it’s isolated from the over 100 cannabinoids that can be found in hemp and includes no other active compounds. As the purest form of cannabidiol, CBD isolate is extracted then refined to strip out any plant components, terpenes or other cannabinoids from it.

CBD isolate comes in the form of a powder and is an off-white color. It has no taste or odor, which makes it an ideal ingredient for the many varieties of CBD products, such as edibles and topicals. And of course, as with other CBD, it contains virtually no TCH and as a result, has no psychoactive properties.

A Synergistic System: Full Spectrum CBD

In contrast to the purity of 100% refined cannabidiol isolate, full spectrum CBD contains other cannabinoids, like CBN, CBG, and CBCVA. It also contains terpenes, which adds to the aromatic properties of the oil.

While these compounds cannot get you high, they do have a therapeutic effect, especially when combined with one another. It’s been termed “the Entourage Effect,” and it refers to the improved efficacy of full spectrum CBD oil due to the synergy of these additional cannabinoid compounds.

Which One Is Right For You?

Both CBD isolate and full spectrum CBD present distinct advantages, depending on your uses and needs. For instance, CBD isolate works better with some people’s chemistries. It can also be less expensive, and its powder form makes for more easily managed dosages. Full Spectrum CBD can be more effective in treating pain because of the synergistic effect of the many cannabinoid compounds.

No matter which form of CBD extract is right for you, we can offer you our reliably high-quality and competitively-priced CBD products at Innovative Separations.
