What exactly is CBD?
CBD, otherwise known as cannabidiol, is a natural chemical compound that comes from the hemp plant. It is one of over 113 compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. However, CBD is not a psychotropic cannabinoid like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), nor does it produce intoxication or euphoria.

Full-Spectrum CBD VS CBD Isolate
Full-spectrum hemp oil comes with all 113 of the cannabinoids present in the hemp plant. Some of the most common cannabinoids found in the hemp plant are cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), cannabicyclol (CBL), tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) and cannabichromevarinic acid (CBCVA). It is crucial to point out that small amounts of THC can also be found in hemp.
To create an isolate product, the CBD has to be extracted from all other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. This gives you CBD in its purest, THC-free form, but studies show the other naturally present cannabinoids in a full-spectrum product can interact to result in additional benefits. This interaction is called the “entourage effect.”
