The Difference Between Full Spectrum CBD vs. Isolate

When considering purchasing CBD oil, is is important to know the difference between full spectrum CBD and CBD isolate. While these may seem like the same thing, there are several differences between the two that result in them having slightly different effects.

Full-Spectrum CBD

Full-spectrum CBD refers to the fact that this type of CBD oil contains all of the cannabinoids and minerals found in the hemp plant, not just CBD. This type of oil still doesn’t contain any THC, since it’s a hemp plant instead of a cannabis plant. However, it does contain the rest of the hemp plant’s cannabinoids, which include CBN, CBL, and CBCVA. This can actually cause CBD oil to have stronger effects, since it allows the CBD to work in unison with the other cannabinoids to better deliver the effects of wellness. It also has a lot of naturally-found minerals that increase its positive effects as well.

CBD working with other cannabinoids to increase effectiveness is known as the entourage effect. Since each cannabinoid comes with its own positive side effects, the combined effort of all cannabinoids involved creates a stronger result than any of them could on their own. They work together to increase the level of wellness you can get from the product!

Full-spectrum CBD also contains minerals such as Vitamins A, C, and E, as well as various B-vitamins. It also contains up to 20 amino acids, including heart-healthy ones such as Omega-3 and Omega-6.

Mahalo Wellness produces the highest quality full-spectrum CBD available, because we’re committed to giving you the maximum amount of wellness with no negative side effects.

CBD Isolate

CBD isolate, naturally, is the exact opposite. It’s when the CBD is isolated from the rest of the hemp plant, which means it contains none of the other cannabinoids and minerals that are naturally found in hemp oil. This pure form of CBD oil can be extremely beneficial in reducing the levels of inflammation and pain a patient has. Feel free to read our previous blog posts for more information on the isolated form of CBD.

CBD on its own helps to regulate homeostasis, which is in charge of keeping our body in balance by regulating our hunger levels, pain levels, mood, memory, immune system functions, and more. Various studies have also shown the use of CBD oil to have a positive effect on the symptoms of depression, heart disease, schizophrenia, opioid withdrawals, and many more. Even on its own, it’s extremely beneficial, with no negative side effects.

Which one is better?

While both forms of CBD are great products that improve feelings of wellness with no negative side effects, it’s hard to argue that full-spectrum CBD isn’t the better choice overall. It contains all the positive effects of CBD isolate, and also contains many vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are essential for your body to function at the highest level possible. Mahalo Wellness recognizes the greatness of full-spectrum CBD, and our products can help you if you are struggling with chronic pain, inflammation, sleeping disorders, anxiety, and gut issues. It can also be used to ease the symptoms of depression, epilepsy, schizophrenia, and more.

There are no clear-cut rules about CBD dosing as people choose to take CBD for different reasons. In the body, CBD acts as a sort of balancer. It stabilizes the endocannabinoid system and the extra cannabinoids just get expelled through natural bodily functions. In other words, the body uses what it needs to achieve the balance that is lacking no matter how much CBD you take.
