CBD Full Spectrum vs Isolate, what’s best for you?

There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing which CBD product is best for you: 

CBD isolates, such as found in our chews, makes a great sleep aid, may promote bone health, may improve certain types of epilepsy, nausea, pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, neurodegenerative disorders, PTSD, and much more! CBD isolates can also make for a terrific little boost to the full spectrum oil throughout the day.

The terpenes, found in all our CBD products, are aromatics such as beta-caryophyllene, myrcene, borneol, and nerolidol just to name a few. The 14 terpenes add earthy tones to the oils: hints of woody, floral, citrus, and hoppy notes. Each terpene carries its own set of benefits including anti-anxiety, anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anticonvulsant properties.

Full spectrum CBD products, like our oil and topical cream, contain other minor cannabinoids such as:

  • CBG
  • CBC
  • CBN
  • THC (<0.3% legal limit of course).

Each of these cannabinoids has these beneficial qualities:

  • antioxidant
  • antimicrobial
  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-anxiety
  • anti-depressant

When CBD is combined with all of the minor cannabinoids and the terpenes it elicits the “entourage effect”:

All of them together work synergistically to enhance or mediate the effects of the others. Some of them even help the absorption of the rest! Now that’s some great teamwork!

While every person is different, various CBD products can also have different effects when taken alone or together. Don’t be afraid to experiment and find out what CBD combination works best for you!

What is our vote?  That is going to be Full Spectrum for being the best bang for your buck!
