What are the different types of CBD?
CBD Oils fall into 4 main categories: Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, Isolate CBD Oil and Cold Pressed CBD Oil. Each one is very different and each one may have very different results when taken.
Full Spectrum CBD Oil
This is the mother lode of CBD Oils. This is where everything that can be left in the final product has been. A true Full Spectrum CBD oil will contain not only CBD, but compounds like CBC, CBG, CBDA, and legal amounts of THC. It will also smell and taste very much like the natural plant ("hempy"). This is due to leaving in place, the Terpenes (smelling compounds) and the Flavonoids (taste compounds). Even though Full Spectrum CBD Oil contains some THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), all our CBD Oil products on sale will not get you "high" and will not make you fail a drugs test.
Broad Spectrum CBD Oil
This is very similar to "Full Spectrum" CBD Oil apart from one key factor, It has had all the THC removed. This is usually down to some countries outlawing THC. The UK legal limit at the present time is 1mg/container. All our CBD Oil products are below this legal amount.
It may also be less harsh (or less "hempy") than a true Full Spectrum oil. Again, this is done on purpose at the extraction stage and many of the terpenes/flavonoids/chlorophylls etc have been removed. This is mainly personal choice.
Isolate (PURE) CBD Oil
Isolate CBD Oil is where absolutely everything apart from the CBD compound has been removed. Flavourless and odourless, this may seem like a lower quality product but from experience, Isolate Pure CBD oils do also work well and the feedback we get from these products is often amazing. Some people just prefer the simple plain taste of these oils and the fact that they contain zero THC. Some athletes/police/military personnel etc like to play safe and make sure they have a product that contains no THC.
Cold Pressed CBD Oil
The crazy thing about Cold Pressed CBD Oil is that it seems to be the "new-kid-on-the-block", yet it is the oldest form of CBD Oil (or CBD extraction) by far. It is exactly what it says on the tin....pressed when cold. Nothing else.
One thing to be aware of with "Cold Pressed" CBD Oil is that it is not the same as "Hemp Seed Oil". That is made by pressing the Hemp Seeds. Cold Pressed CBD Oil is made by pressing the stalks and flowers. These contain CBD (unlike the seeds).
