CBD 101

Three kinds of CBD

Pure CBD – Made from CBD Isolate, these products are 99%+ pure which means that they contain the one single cannabinoid all by itself, and nothing more. These products will often times be clear in color and will have no smell or taste.

Full Spectrum CBD – Made from full plant material, these products contain ~8 cannabinoids, as well as all compounds, and terpenes found in the hemp plant, which causes these products to have a green earthy smell and taste. Full Spectrum may contain trace amounts of THC, although below the legal limits of 0.3%, and will not produce any kind of mind altering high but can show up on a drug screen.

Broad Spectrum CBD – Also referred to as T-Free Broad Spectrum, these products will contain ~3-4 cannabinoids, without trace amounts of THC. Broad Spectrum will not have a green earthy taste or smell, but will still contain enough cannabinoids to produce the Entourage Effect.

How Does CBD Work?

CBD works by activating naturally occurring receptors found within our endocannabinoid system. The more cannabinoids, the more receptors that are activated allowing for a broader symptom relief.

The human body naturally produces certain cannabinoids on its own, but it also has two receptors for cannabinoids, these receptors are called the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Full Spectrum CBD helps to activate these receptors in a process known as “The Entourage Effect”.

CB1 receptors are found throughout the body, but mainly in the brain. These receptors deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, as well as other functions. When THC is present in CBD (Full Spectrum), it attaches to these receptors, helping to aid in greater and a broader pain and symptom relief.

CB2 receptors are more commonly found in the immune system. They affect inflammation and pain. It was thought that CBD attached to these CB2 receptors, but it now appears that CBD does not attach directly to either receptor. Instead, it seems to direct the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.

Which to Use?

When trying to decipher which is better, that eventually boils down to the relief that is looking to be achieved. It is thought that when using Pure CBD, one will find it works better for arthritic pain, inflammation, joint discomfort, mood stabilizer, etc.

Broad Spectrum & Full Spectrum have been found to work better for a broader symptom relief. Since “Spectrum” products activate CB1 and CB2 receptors, often times consumers will find that these products work better for stress, anxiety, depression, etc. as well as having pain and inflammation fighting properties. However, Full Spectrum can contain trace amounts of THC that when taken in excess or for an extended period of time, can show up on a drug screen.

When trying to choose a product, consider the following:

1. Are trace amounts of THC an issue?

2. What is CBD being used for? Pain & Inflammation or Stress & Anxiety?

3. Are you a frequent cannabis user?

4. Do you prefer an all-natural green flavor,
or would you prefer a product with no flavor?

Once you’ve got an idea of what you’re looking for, and what fits well with your lifestyle, compare that to the benefits of each product whether Pure, Broad Spectrum, or Full Spectrum, and enjoy the benefits of being a CBD user!

Dosage & Strength

The amount of CBD that each person is going to require to find relief, is different as no two people are the same. However, most people on average tend to find relief anywhere between 10 and 50 milligrams of CBD daily. To prevent a tolerance buildup, we always suggest starting with a low dose and gradually working your way up until relief is found, also known as Microdosing.

All of our tinctures come in 1oz (30ml) bottles, coupled with easy to open glass pipettes marked to milligram. We have made the dosaging simple and easy by putting the milligram breakdown on the side of the bottle. This will show how much CBD you’re taking in, at each strength, for each ¼, ½, and full dropper.
