You’re probably very familiar with the term “CBD” – which is actually short for Cannabidiol. CBD itself is a single compound, called a Cannabinoid, found within the Hemp plant.
When someone refers to CBD – they are often referring to a hemp extract, not the actual compound Cannabidiol. It’s important to understand the difference.
Often products are being sold and labeled as “CBD Oil” – when in fact this may be incorrect. Extracts from the hemp plant may be a pure CBD Isolate, Full Spectrum or Broad Spectrum.
Knowing the difference between these three matters. You may be surprised to learn that some of these extracts actually contain a very small amount of CBD – sometimes less than 10%. In this case you’re mostly getting other parts of the plant. While these do offer benefits, research indicates that CBD itself is most important.
