As the popularity of CBD continues to rise and more consumers than ever are exploring the products and benefits, one large question often arises about the types of hemp CBD on the market today. Are all CBD products the same?
It’s important for users to understand the types of products that are available today.
In today’s blog post, we will discuss the two primary types of CBD as well as the differences that exist between full-spectrum CBD and isolate-based CBD products. These are two of the primary ways that CBD products are categorized and it is because of the type of CBD used in those products.
First, a quick initial refresher on what CBD is. CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a cannabinoid that is found in the cannabis plant. Along with CBD and THC, there are over one hundred other cannabinoids that have been identified throughout different cannabis genetic strains. In 1995, researchers discovered that cannabinoids reacted with our body’s own Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
What is Full-spectrum CBD?
All of the cannabinoids that occur within the cannabis plant are referred to collectively as the cannabinoid spectrum, or the full spectrum of cannabinoids.
Revivid CBD products are created when the cannabinoids are extracted from the cannabis plant via CO2 extraction. During the process, additional compounds found within the plant are extracted including terpenes and flavonoids.
Revivid Whole, a full spectrum CBD product, contains all of these extracted compounds including the cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils and fatty acids. The spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes work together in symmetry with each other.
What is Isolate-based CBD?
Isolate is scientifically defined as the purest form of a compound. CBD Isolate is produced when Cannabidiol (CBD) is isolated as a single compound from all other elements. This is the purest form of CBD, in which all other plant compounds and cannabinoids have been completely removed, often testing at 99.9% purity levels. CBD Isolate and isolate-based products contain no additional cannabinoids or terpenes. These products are often the choice of users who are sensitive to THC or are unable to ingest THC.
Here at Revivid USA, we do not believe that one type of CBD is better than another, which is why we offer both our Revivid Pure and Revivid Whole product lines. Revivid Pure is made with 99% Pure CBD Isolate while Revivid Whole is made with Full-spectrum CBD oil.
