“Full-Spectrum CBD” vs “CBD Isolate”
Most reputable CBD oil is extracted from hemp. Although related to marijuana, it is important to know that hemp plants do not contain any intoxicating compounds such as THC (the active ingredient in marijuana). It is not possible to experience any intoxicating effects from a cannabis product that does not contain THC. That’s why it’s legal to manufacture, sell and purchase CBD products made from industrial hemp. CBD that is not extracted from hemp will usually have levels of THC that should be below 0.3%.
CBD is extracted from the hemp plant in the form of a highly concentrated essential oil. CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the 113 non-intoxicating elements found in the cannabis plant.
Ultimately, most CBD you’ll find and certainly all the CBD available at Dr. Chin’s website is derived from the hemp plant; hence, “CBD Hemp Oil.” You might hear the phrase “CBD oil” as a shorthand for this, although it is possible that a product with that description was extracted from a non-hemp cannabis source.
“Full-Spectrum CBD” vs “CBD Isolate”
When researching or purchasing a CBD product, you may notice that you have the option of selecting between a CBD isolate, broad-spectrum, or full-spectrum CBD product. Full-spectrum CBD contains all the available plant terpenes, and other cannabinoids in the same ratio found naturally in the hemp plants they are sourced from. Isolates may lack the synergy of a full-spectrum product. Broad-spectrum CBD is just like full-spectrum, but with essentially undetectably small levels of THC. Many people consider full-spectrum hemp oil to be the most “complete” form of CBD oil. Some of the nutritive compounds in full-spectrum CBD include:
- Omega 3 fatty acids
- Linoleic acid
- B complex vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin)
- Vitamins C, A and E
- Magnesium, potassium, and calcium
- Phosphorus, zinc, and iron
- All 20 amino acids
Extracted CBD, in its purest form, is actually a solid product. Like many essential oils, CBD needs to be dissolved in a carrier oil. This helps control the level of cannabinoids in the final product. The type of carrier oil used will determine the best use of the CBD product. In your quest for knowledge, probably have found several different types of CBD oil available. Some CBD oils are intended to be taken orally, while others are made to be vaped. It’s important to know the differences between these products.
Benefits Of Ingestible CBD Oils
Many of the CBD oils and tinctures on the market are made to be ingested. The carrier oils used to create edible CBD oils (or tinctures) are typically vegetable oil, olive oil or hemp seed oil. These oils are too thick to be vaporized with the heated coil of a vape pen.
When supplementing with CBD oil, holding the product under your tongue for 90 seconds before swallowing will help the CBD get into your system faster. You might typically notice the effects of your ingested CBD oil within 30-45 minutes, while it should last from 8-12 hours.
How Much CBD To Use
Dr. Chin cannot recommend a specific CBD dosage for you. Whether you vape your CBD or take the product orally, it may take some time to know how much CBD to use. The effects of CBD vary from person to person and dosages are not necessarily correlated with body weight. It may take you several days, to several weeks, to find the dosage that best suits your needs.
Our customers tend to report that a typical serving of CBD is 5-30mg when taken orally.
CBD is not a medical treatment for any disease or disorder and can interact with several medications. Anyone with a chronic health condition or taking medication should consult with their healthcare provider before adding CBD oil or CBD vape oil to their diet.
