CBD is not new to the party but has been a favorite “guest” among many in recent years for its beneficial properties without the added factor of getting high (that’s only when THC is involved in the mix). Before we dig any deeper, let’s cover some basics about CBD, what it does and what it doesn’t do and how it can help you to feel awesome.
CBD is the shorthand abbreviation for cannabidiol, which is the “second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana),” from this Harvard article. CBD is a natural compound derived from the hemp plant without the psychotropic aspects. Therefore, making it a safer option as it does not have any properties by which someone could become dependent on or abuse it. Since it does not have the same psychotropic properties that THC carries, users can take this at any time without risking becoming high or out of it. You can get all the benefits and keep on with your day. Now that’s a win/win.
CBD comes with a wide array of strengths, known as spectrums. To understand the effects and benefits of each, it’s best to know what level of spectrum is in the product you are consuming.
Full-Spectrum CBD: this indicates a CBD product is holding the most possible natural compounds from the original cannabis plant. Be aware that the full spectrum means there are likely some traces of THC in the CBD. However, traces are typically 0.3 or less, meaning you will likely not get high from them.
Broad-Spectrum CBD: this indicates that trace elements of other natural compounds from the cannabis plant are in the product along with CBD, but all traces of THC have been effectively removed in addition to the flavonoids and terpenes.
CBD Isolate: this indicates the purest form of CBD, which is entirely isolated from all other compounds in the plant. It is both tasteless and odorless.
