If you have been in the market for CBD oil or CBD products in general, there’s a very good chance you have noticed different types of choices in their cannabinoid spectrum. The three most popular and regularly used choices are CBD isolate, broad spectrum CBD, and full spectrum CBD.
These spectrums indicate the profile of cannabinoids in each oil. The potency is typically labeled in milligrams, take for example a 600mg CBD Isolate Tincture. Each cannabinoid spectrum will interact with your ECS (endocannabinoid system) differently and is unique to each individual.
What is the ECS?
We have a vast network of cell receptors throughout our body and brain that help to regulate everything from appetite and pain to memory and mood. It’s called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and its sole purpose is to help our bodies reach homeostasis or balance. Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids to support this system, but like any nutrient, we can become deficient in endocannabinoids, which results in an imbalance of our ECS. Enter CBD. Because CBD is a cannabinoid, it synergistically interacts and stimulates our ECS to help bring our bodies back to homeostasis.
So what is the difference between each cannabinoid spectrum?
The answer is in the oil and how your endocannabinoid system interacts with each profile. Below we will break down each cannabinoid spectrum so you can make a clear choice on what is best for you on your path to wellness.
