Generally speaking, full-spectrum CBD oils are the go-to option for people that are just starting out using hemp-derived products. CBD of course is the key active component of hemp extract wellness products, but it’s certainly not the only active component.
In fact, some resources suggest that hemp contains upwards of 200 active chemical components. These components include not only cannabinoids (i.e. CBD, CBN, CBG, THC, etc.), but also a variety of terpenoids (terpenes), flavonoids, amino acids, Omega fatty acids, and important vitamins and minerals.
Full-spectrum CBD products contain (or should contain) all of these different compounds. Many products claim to sell “full-spectrum CBD oils.” Without the proper COAs or lab reports to back them up, however, there’s really no way to know for certain what you’re actually getting.
For reference, the labsheets that we make available on our Provacan product pages identify the seven most prominent hemp-based phytocannabinoids that our CBD oils contain. The reports are generated using LC-UV (liquid chromatography-ultra violet) technology, meaning detectable amounts of compounds are identified down to the nanogram (ng).
In addition of course to CBD, Provacan labsheets accurately identify detectable amounts of cannabichromene (CBC), cannabidiolic acid (CBD-A), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Broad-Spectrum CBD Oils
You may have seen some products labeled or advertised as broad-spectrum. While the exact definition of this term varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, it generally refers to hemp-derived CBD products that do not contain any THC.
THC, as you may or may not know, is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis; it is what’s responsible for the mind-altering “high” that some cannabis strains produce. While hemp does contain trace amounts of THC (rarely more than 0.2% by dry weight), it is not nearly enough to produce any intoxicating or mind-altering effects.
Still, many people prefer to consume CBD hemp products that are 100% THC-free (sometimes for drug-testing purposes), hence the popularity of broad-spectrum products.
As the name suggests, CBD Isolate products are products that contain CBD and nothing else. As an isolated compound, CBD exists as a white crystalline solid; appearance-wise, it might easily be mistaken for sugar.
Many people choose to suspend CBD isolate in a carrier oil, such as coconut or olive oil. In this way, the various uses of CBD isolate open up tremendously, making isolate products some of the most diverse products available.
While companies tout various uses of CBD Isolate, it is widely used to cook with. For example it can be easily manipulated, measured out, and infused into things like olive oils, coconut oils, and frying butters. It can also easily be added to hot beverages like tea or coffee, as long as it is suspended in some sort of high-fat carrier oil.
The (Potential) Advantage of Provacan Full-Spectrum CBD Products
In terms of which type of CBD product you should be using, that is of course a decision that will come down to your own personalised needs. As we mention above, some people prefer CBD isolates or broad-spectrum CBD products if they want to avoid the consumption of THC altogether.
For other people, starting off with a basic full-spectrum CBD oil is likely the best option. This is because some evidence suggests that, when consumed along with other natural chemical components of hemp extract, CBD functions far more efficiently compared to when it is consumed alone as an isolate. In other words, it appears that full-spectrum CBD products are more effective in terms of their potential benefits than other types of CBD products.
