Let's talk about different CBD Products + How to Use them

For people who are new to using CBD, deciding on which product to use from the tons of different ones available to them, can be confusing. Sometimes even a bit scary! That is why we’ve put together this definitive guide to help you choose the best CBD product for you.

Types Of CBD extracts

The first thing you’ll probably run into when looking at different CBD product types are the type of CBD extract they are made from, this is because each type of extract comes with its own set of benefits and characteristics, it’s an important piece of the puzzle when choosing the best CBD product.

Full-Spectrum CBD

This type of CBD extract contains the ‚Äúfull spectrum‚ÄĚ of compounds found in the whole cannabis plant. The benefits of full-spectrum CBD oil extracts are often thought to be more powerful because of the¬†entourage effect.¬†

CBD Isolate

CBD isolates are a super refined form of CBD that is roughly 99+ % pure cannabidiol.  Because of this purity, CBD isolates were considered the gold-standard.  But, since the discovery of the entourage effect, CBD isolates have begun to fall out of favour. 

Hemp Seed Oil

Although not strictly a CBD extract, hemp seed oil (or hemp oil) is worth a mention because it sometimes causes a bit of confusion - and is in some cases even sold as being the same as CBD oil by unscrupulous brands. Because hemp seed oil is extracted from hemp seeds, it contains no cannabinoids. It is however rich in many vitamins, minerals and essential fatty-acids making it popular for use as a nutritional supplement or a base oil in skin care products.
