MINT HILL, NC – Just like everything else, CBD has its pros and its cons. Before you decide rather or not to try it read below some fun facts about CBD.
Pros and cons of full-spectrum CBD.
One of the biggest benefits of full-spectrum CBD is that you’ll get what’s known as the entourage effect. These components include:
- phytocannabinoids (like CBD and THC)
- terpenes (compounds that affect cannabis’s scent and flavor)
If you want to maximize the benefits of cannabis, full-spectrum CBD could be your best bet.
However, a potential downside to full-spectrum CBD is that if you take a large enough dose of a potent enough product, you may feel “high” due to the THC. This is one of the reasons that I ask my customers to take only .25 twice a day or .50 once a day. With our CBD sublingual oil there is no need to take more. Small doses of lower potency products are unlikely to produce any euphoric effects. Please know, since full-spectrum products contain THC, you may run a higher risk of testing positive for cannabis should you take a drug test.
Pros and cons of broad-spectrum CBD
One potential plus of broad-spectrum CBD is that you have the highest chance of keeping a clear mind — no THC means no “high” feeling. A drawback, though, is that CBD sans THC may not be quite as effective as the two together. More research is needed, but the entourage effect suggests they may work best together. That’s not to say broad-spectrum products won’t give you any of the entourage effect benefits at all. Broad-spectrum CBD still contains some other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, which may offer benefits beyond the CBD alone.
What about CBD isolate?
Then there is CBD isolate which is the purest form of CBD, with none of the other cannabinoids or compounds from the cannabis plant. That means there’s no chance of benefiting from the entourage effect. Still, there is research that suggests CBD isolate may offer some benefits.
Isolates tend to be free of both flavor and odor. That makes them a good choice for people who don’t like the earthiness or hemp taste of regular CBD.
Products made with CBD isolate can also be a good option if you want to avoid THC altogether. I highly recommend this to anyone that doesn’t want to take a chance with even the less than 0.03% showing up.
