What Is CBD?

At Hanf Extracts, we know all about the differences in the CBD oils that we create for our products. However, we know that many of our consumers are wondering about the differences in certain CBD products. What does it mean if I purchase a full-spectrum CBD oil? What is a CBD distillate? Below, we are hoping to answers some of the most common CBD questions for those hoping to get started using CBD products.

What is a CBD Isolate?

A CBD isolate is a solid crystalline material or powder that contains pure CBD. Though most of the THC that lingers in CBD products are untraceable, CBD isolates guarantee that you can enjoy the positive benefits of CBD without worrying about ingesting any THC. CBD isolates can be taken and enjoyed in a wide variety of ways, including through food and drink. If you are looking for an easy way to get 99% CBD, then trying out a CBD isolate may be for you!

What is a CBD Distillate?

CBD distillate is a highly refined cannabis extract. CBD distillates typically contain 80% CBD because they are extracted directly from CBD hemp flowers or hemp biomass. Hemp extractors, as we have here at Hanf Extracts, want to pull CBD distillates from hemp plants to provide the purest forms of CBD to their clients. CBD distillate is tasteless, colorless, and has zero impurities. A small amount of this product will go a long way in helping you to feel the positive effects of CBD oil or other CBD products. There are two types of CBD distillates, full-spectrum, and broad-spectrum CBD, which we will discuss below.

What is Full-Spectrum CBD?

Full-spectrum CBD is by far the most popular type of CBD to enjoy in products or edibles, and for a good reason. Full-spectrum CBD simply means that the CBD oil or product contains all the cannabinoids that naturally occurred in the hemp plant that the CBD product was extracted from. The benefit of using full-spectrum CBD is for the desired entourage effect. This means that because the plant contains the natural benefits of CBD and the unextracted oils and cannabinoids, the results will be more effective overall. Full-spectrum CBD contains a small as .03% THC.

What is Broad-Spectrum CBD?

Broad-spectrum CBD is very similar to full-spectrum CBD, except it contains zero traces of THC. It still contains the great oils that are extracted with the CBD from the cannabis or hemp plant but remove lingering traces of THC from its products. That way, you can enjoy the synergistic benefits of full-spectrum CBD without risking ingesting THC.

All these different types of CBD have many benefits. What is important is finding the best CBD products that work for you or your animals. That is why at Hanf Extracts, we are happy to offer such a wide variety of CBD tinctures, CBD moisturizers, lotions, edibles, and more.
