Broad Spectrum vs. Isolate CBD

Written by RC Williams — February 16, 2021

Broad Spectrum vs. Isolate CBD

In our hectic and busy world today, many of us often feel stressed, tired, and simply worn out. As we move at a frantic pace from one activity to another, we may find it easy to put nagging health issues on the back burner. Some of us may have even come to believe that the common conditions we struggle with – sleeplessness, mood disorders, anxious feelings, and ongoing pain, for example - are simply a part of life. We may have tried to treat the conditions we struggle with using prescription medications or other treatments but without the results we want. These feelings are understandable.

Fortunately for those feeling this way, there is a new health supplement on the horizon. Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, has burst onto the health and wellness scene in the last few years to much excitement – and for good reason. CBD has been touted as a safe, natural, and effective way to treat many common conditions as well as to bring back the feeling of calm, centered energy that most of us want to experience throughout our day.

The Facts about CBD 

A natural derivative of the hemp plant, CBD is a cannabinoid that works with the endocannabinoid system already present in our bodies. That system, which is responsible for maintaining our homeostasis, or internal balance, helps to regulate any number of important processes like metabolism, temperature, and others. When cannabinoids, both those produced by our bodies and those from outside sources like CBD are ingested, they encourage a variety of beneficial health effects.

It goes without saying that CBD has become quite popular for those who want to boost their health without using prescription medications and experiencing many of the side effects that come with them.

Despite its appeal and many benefits, those who are interested in CBD often still have many questions about it. As it is still relatively new to the health and wellness market, this is completely understandable. At Rejuvial, we believe that knowledge is power, and that an informed customer is a happy customer. It is always wise to want to have a thorough understanding of the supplements that you choose to add to your health and wellness routine.

While we receive many questions about CBD, a very common question we receive is from customers who are interested in knowing the difference between CBD isolate and broad-spectrum CBD. When exploring the possibilities that a new product offers, trying to learn all of the jargon associated with the product and what it means can understandably be confusing. In this case particularly, it is important to understand the difference between these two types of products, as they ultimately function quite differently within the body.

CBD Isolate v. Broad-Spectrum CBD

The word “isolate” means alone - in this particular case, CBD alone by itself. In technically scientific terms, an isolate is the purest form of a compound. It is produced by extracting that compound – and only that compound – from its source and isolating it from any other compounds.

CBD isolate is therefore the purest form of CBD and is produced by removing all other compounds found in the plant, including other cannabinoids, as well as terpenes, flavonoids, and plant parts. CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD. It poses absolutely no risk of psychoactive effects, as it contains 0% THC, which is removed during the extraction process. CBD isolate is often recommended for individuals who are wanting to take very high doses of CBD alone or who are hesitant, for whatever personal reasons, about ingesting any other cannabinoids.

In contrast to CBD isolate, broad-spectrum CBD is CBD that contains all of the compounds that are naturally occurring in the hemp plant without any THC. This includes terpenes, essential oils, flavonoids, and other plant parts as well. After all, the hemp plant is a wonder plant in and of itself, and many of the compounds it contains beyond CBD alone have significant medicinal value.

One of the benefits of taking a broad-spectrum product is that the user experiences what is commonly called an “entourage effect.” This essentially means that the broad-spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and essential oils included in a broad-spectrum product work together to magnify the benefits of each so they are stronger and more effective than they would be alone.

Generally, many believe that broad-spectrum CBD is an excellent choice because it delivers the enhanced benefits of the entire cannabis plant. Unlike isolate CBD, broad-spectrum products do not contain THC. If you have any personal feelings about taking a product that contains THC, it is always wise to carefully research the product that you are considering before taking it.
