Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Oil vs Isolate

Often times people are confused on the CBD product that is good for them and reason behind their choice of selecting a particular CBD product. Some people do not know why people prefer to buy full spectrum cbd oil while other prefer CBD isolates. Is the therapeutic benefits of full spectrum cbd oil more effective compared to isolate product. To answer these questions, we will look at the meaning of full spectrum CBD and isolate CBD component.

Full Spectrum CBD oil vs CBD oil isolates

First of all, what is full spectrum cannabidiol oil?

Full spectrum hemp oil according to echoconnection.org refers to when the pure oil extracted from hemp contains all the same cannabinoids and compounds as originally found in the hemp plant. This is unlike the isolated or synthetic cannabinoids, full spectrum hemp oil contain richly abundant cannabinoids, essential vitamins and minerals, essential oils, terpenes, flavonoids and proteins.

In my previous posts, I did discuss the therapeutic effects of cannabinoids and the terpenes. For additional information on the therapeutic benefits of Cannabinoids please check out this wonderful and very informative write up here.

Research has found that CBD products have many health benefits such as in pain control, anxiety, tremor, arthritis, seizure cancer management etc. The challenge now is when buying CBD product for the various ailments, which product should we buy? Should we buy the full spectrum CBD or isolate product?

To make this decision, it is very important for us to understand the difference between Full Spectrum CBD and Isolate CBD. Full Spectrum as already mentioned contain more than one component of the CBD products. Some of the components of CBD ( cannabinoids) are cannabidiol CBD, cannabichromene CBC, cannabigerol CBG, tetrahydrocannabinol THC, cannabinol CBN, cannabidiolic acid CBDa, etc.

Isolate means that each of the components are distilled out and separated from mixture while full spectrum means that the extract product contain as many of the components as the solvent is able to extract from the hemp plant.

From research we know that some of the components not only provide health benefits but also has agonistic and synergistic effect thereby potentiating the action of other components. Therefore isolate CBD may not achieve this on its own.

Cannabidiol is the most abundant cannabinoid in hemp plant. It makes over 90% of the cannabinoid content in full spectrum hemp oil. The abundance nature of CBD is due to high content of CBDa which converts to CBD upon heating(decarboxylation process).

Hence, full spectrum CBD oil contain cannabidiol, cannabigerol, tetrahydrocannabinol (less then 0.3% content), cannabinol, cannabichromene, terpenes, vitamins and minerals etc. All these work together to produce the entourage effect thereby enhancing the therapeutic effect of the cannabinoids.

Full spectrum CBD product because it contains more than one chemical compound may increase the chances of drug interaction and side effect which may not be present with isolate compound.

The rule of the thumb will be to know exactly what you are using the product for, discuss with your health care provider and get more information from the manufacturers.

My recommendations for full spectrum CBD products.

Endoca Raw Hemp Oil is full spectrum  though not based in the US, it is based in EU but has quality full spectrum product. It is organic, GMP certified and produced under pharmaceutical control according to company website. Their third party lab tests were current and easy to find and they have so many educational posts that will provide the knowledge and opportunity for informed decision making. I have used their product and will buy it again.

Another one of my recommendations is CBDistillery full spectrum CBD products are grown in the US (Colorado) and has great ratings and reviews. It has so many products for human consumption and for pets at various concentrations of CBD.  The team seems to be well organized for business and has lots of information on product marketing and sales.

I was a bit disappointed when I check the site for third party test result and could not easily locate it in the website. I was able to find tests that are not current on the sitemap location.

CBDistillery is quality product judging from reviews and testimonials, they have great team and I believe they can and should look into updating their third party test results with results that look real and original instead of  what they have so far and provide current test results that will justify the quality of the products they have. I actually went to their blog site and located something I am sure you would love to add to your knowledge about full spectrum, broad spectrum and isolate CBD products here.

CTFO is another product grown here in the US and has variety, quality with 60 days money back guaranteed  which is far more than what I see with other products.  The have great website with lots of educational information.  CTFO has full spectrum as well as isolate CBD products to choose from.

They offer CBD products for all kinds of ailments as well as health maintenance, skin care products as well as great products for your pets. We all know that even cats and dogs suffer from pain of arthritis, anxiety and neurological problems and also require health maintenance for longer happier life.

  1. Excellent write up!! I had no clue there were these two groups of CBD hemp oil. It seems to me like you had mentioned, the full spectrum is the best thing because of how the chemicals can work together. Is there any other major reasons why someone would want the isolated type? I would assume it can be a lot more expensive because the product is distilled out. 

  2. Hi GinaO

    I believe that the discussion between the usefulness of a whole extract versus an isolate of an active principle will always be a constant not only among specialists but also among the general public.The choice between one and the other will depend on the power you want from the more abundant principle, as in this case cannabidiol, compared to the sum of other coadjuvant effects.That’s why it’s so important that you make the differentiation in this post because you help us choose correctly.Thanks

  3. Hi there, this is an excellent article from you about Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Oil and Isolate.  I have understand quite alright the difference between the two and also the one to use in pain control, anxiety and more that CDB oil offers. The challenge has always been which of the CDB products to buy when it comes to using cbd for things like pain control but i must say you have just done justice to it now and with your recommendations on the products to buy

  4. Hi Gina

    I have always been confused on the difference between CBD oil and Isolate. You have helped me a lot with this. I also would like to know more about distilates and what they are? My main problem is that I am diabetic and I have no appetite. I also suffer from arthritis. Can you give me your best recomendation. Thank you again. Kari

    1. Kari I am sorry to hear you have diabetes and arthritis. First I do not recommend using this as treatment for your diabetes. You must follow up with your diabetic doctor to ensure your sugar is under control and your diet is well monitored. One of the complications of diabetes is neuropathy so I am not sure if that is what you are referring to as arthritis. I will advice you follow up with a diabetic doctor and check with the doctor if you could use full spectrum CBD oil or the capsule as health supplement and see how it works out for you. Some people reported improvement in symptoms. Thanks for reading my post and I wish you the best.

  5. This is indeed an educative post, CBD isolate does have something to offer CBD users that full-spectrum extracts does not. The fact that full-spectrum extracts invariably contain low levels of THC means that some users prefer to play it safe and stick to pure CBD by itself. but with the help of more scientific research, we can expect to manufacture and make sales of CBD goods around isolates. 

    1. Full spectrum CBD products may contain little (0.3%) or no THC. The idea of full spectrum should not imply THC component. Full spectrum is better and more potent depending on what one is looking for or hoping to achieve. Thanks for reading my post.

  6. Great post-Gina. The information in this post is quite educative. Based on my understanding, both full spectrum  CBD oil and isolate oil are good, like you advised, one has to know the reasons he/she is taking CBD and also discussed such with his/her doctor. however, based on the information from your post and the research I have done on CBD,  I prefer the full spectrum CBD products compared to the isolate CBD

    CBD products are quite useful, however, the ban on Marijuana is affecting the awareness of the health benefits of CBD in some states, It is not a bad idea to earn some dollars promoting CBD products.  

    1. Thanks Tolu. Do you use CBD oil and what brand do you use? I appreciate your comment and feel free to share with your friends if you like the post.
