When it comes to Cannabidiol oils and similar products, there is a lot of information to digest. You need all the information before you can find the right quality, quantity, and brand for your body, as well as your personal taste.
First, there are three distinct types of CBD, broad-spectrum, full-spectrum, and CBD Isolate. Broad spectrum CBD hemp oils are the most common and the one we will discuss here.
What Is The Difference Between The Three CBD?
Broad Spectrum CBD – this contains the largest range of compounds that are naturally occurring from the cannabis plant. It also has no large amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. It may contain a trace amount of THC, but not enough to cause a “high”.
Full Spectrum CBD – this contains all the compounds from the cannabis plant and most likely has a large quantity of tetrahydrocannabinol. This is what causes a “high” or alters the brain activity, although, in this form, it is an extremely small amount.
CBD Isolate – this contains only the CBD compound and is typically found in powder or crystal form.
Benefits of Broad Spectrum CBD
Although there is still ongoing research, and much more information is needed, here are the major benefits of broad-spectrum CBD products so far:
– could help control anxiety and some nervous conditions
– can help manage certain pain conditions, especially chronic pain caused by inflammation
– may help improve seizures, the duration, and how often they happen in certain individuals
– could help with insomnia and other sleep disturbance
Mental and Physical Health – taking Broad Spectrum CBD daily can improve a person’s mental capacity. Helping one remember things is paramount to getting on in life, especially if your career demands details and concentration.
Improving physical health isn’t so clear-cut. You may experience more energy or motivation to do things like walking or other exercises. This has to do with the CBD in the bloodstream and how it works with your own chemical makeup.
Nutrient Benefits – because the Broad Spectrum CBD contains different parts of the plant, you are receiving all the benefits of all the nutrients within the plant. Additionally, there is a low or no THC content, and this is good for the body when processing this type of compound. Having less to process is easier on the body.
Drawbacks of Broad Spectrum CBD
There are only a handful of mild drawbacks to taking Broad Spectrum CBD products. It is important to speak with your primary care provider if you have any medical conditions or are taking any prescription drugs before starting adding this natural drug.
Some Broad Spectrum CBD products contain a trace amount of THC, even if they claim to be THC-free. For this reason, it may be possible to show a positive drug test. If you are regularly tested for drugs and alcohol for your employment or other reasons, you may want to consider a different type of CBD.
Be sure to do your research before trying a Broad Spectrum CBD product. You may need to try a few different brands and types before you find the one that works best for you.
