More people are deciding to give CBD a try, but it is important to note that there are a few different types of CBD to choose from each with their own unique composition. Some people are wondering, what is CBD isolate? And what about broad spectrum CBD? Is one better than the other? 

Cannabinoids Explained

Before we can jump into the differences between types of CBD, it’s important to understand cannabinoids. The cannabinoids are what have an effect on us when we consume parts of the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that naturally occur in the cannabis plant and are sometimes referred to as phytocannabinoids. There are over 100 different cannabinoids that have been isolated from the cannabis plant. Some of the most popular and common cannabinoids include:

  • CBD (Cannabidiol)
  • THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol)
  • CBG (Cannabigerol)
  • CBN (Cannabinol)
  • CBC (Cannabichromene)

Terpenes Explained

Another component of the hemp plant is the terpenes. Terpenes are the naturally occurring compounds responsible for the taste and aroma of cannabis and may play a role in its effects. Terpenes are found in plenty of other plants too, like aromatic herbs and citrus fruits. The most common terpenes found in cannabis plants are:

  • Imonene
  • β-myrcene
  • α-pinene
  • linalool
  • α-terpinolene
  • tran-ocimene

The Endocannabinoid System

Cannabinoids and terpenes are important because they interact with our endocannabinoids system, one of the 12 major body systems alongside the immune system, nervous system, and others. Some refer to its discovery as one of the most significant scientific discoveries of the modern age. The endocannabinoid system is in charge of regulating homeostasis within the body. Homeostasis deals with the balance within the bodily systems along with physiological functions. The endocannabinoid system is made up of three main components: endocannabinoids, endocannabinoid receptors, and metabolic enzymes, and cannabinoids and terpenes interact with them in various ways. 

What Is CBD Isolate?

CBD isolate is a CBD product derived from hemp. All other compounds, including THC, flavonoids, and terpenes, are removed leaving only 99.9% CBD. CBD isolate will come in the shape of big crystals or a fine white powder that looks like confectioner’s sugar. Although some people detect a faint trace of cherry flavor in CBD isolate, in general, it will be odorless and tasteless since the terpenes and flavonoids have been removed. Some people prefer CBD isolate so they can have very precise measurements of CBD since the only weight is from the CBD itself and no other compounds are affecting the flavor, smell, or weight. 

What Is Broad Spectrum CBD?

Broad spectrum CBD oil contains a broad range of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, but still does not contain any THC. Many consider broad spectrum CBD the middle ground between pure CBD isolate which only contains the cannabinoid CBD and full-spectrum CBD, which contains very small amounts of THC. You still get to have the terpenes and flavonoids, which some people feel are important to ingest more of the plant, even if they aren’t consuming THC.
