Understanding The Different Types of CBD
If you’ve shopped for CBD, you’ve heard the terms isolate, broad spectrum, and full spectrum.
Understanding their meanings will help you choose the best product for your needs.
Industrial hemp plants contain over 100 cannabinoids
These include CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, and less than .3% THC. The different names for CBD products refer to how much of what is in the container.
All three types of CBD have their place and benefits, depending on what you’re looking for. First, we’ll explore the differences, and then we’ll discuss the best choice for you.
CBD Isolate Extract
CBD Isolate lives up to its name. It’s 99.5% pure CBD that’s been isolated from the other cannabinoids and terpenes in the hemp plant through an extraction process.
Isolate is adaptable. It can be placed directly under your tongue, made into capsules, added to joints and pipes, or dabbed on its own. You can use it to boost the strength of CBD tinctures, make your own edibles, infuse body, and hair care products; you’re only stopped by your imagination.
Versatility from Isolate
While isolate can be used in many ways, it’s essential to pay attention to dosing. Scientists report single-molecule CBD is effective only within a specific serving range of milligrams.
The best way to determine the most effective dose is by slowly and incrementally, increasing the amount you ingest until you feel relief. This process is called titrating.
Full Spectrum CBD Extracts
Full Spectrum CBD products are rapidly gaining popularity and rightfully so; people report great results.
Made from the whole hemp plant
Full spectrum is a type of CBD from hemp that gives your body the benefit of a complete and total cascade of endocannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils that work together to provide a more well-rounded effect than isolated CBD alone.
CBD Oil Formulations
A product made with full spectrum CBD oil delivers measurable amounts of CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, and less than .3% THC. In what is dubbed as The Entourage Effect, the endocannabinoids in Full Spectrum products work together to go deeper and last longer, with less need for relief.
Broad Spectrum CBD Formulations
Take the .3% THC out of Full Spectrum and you have Broad Spectrum CBD. Broad spectrum is the name for CBD products that have all the cannabinoids except THC. Broad spectrum works well for people who are regularly drug-tested for their jobs or for other reasons are uncomfortable ingesting any amount of THC but still want to receive the other cannabinoids.
Which CBD Products Should You Choose?
Selecting the CBD product that’s right for you depends on what you’re looking for and why you’re taking it. All threes types provide benefits; one is only better than the other based on your needs.

Full Spectrum CBD from Steve’s Goods
Full spectrum CBD is the right choice if you’re not concerned about ingesting THC, and want to experience the wide range of benefits that products rich in cannabinoids offer.
- Delivers a range of cannabinoids generating the entourage effect including less than .3% THC
- Does more with smaller serving sizes
- Be advised of THC if you have a restriction
- Phony brands and bad formulations abound
Broad Spectrum CBD from Steve’s Goods
Choose Broad Spectrum CBD when you want as close to full spectrum as you can get, but without the THC. Meanwhile, keep in mind, studies are showing that having THC in the mix increases the efficacy of the CBD molecule. Of the three types, broad spectrum is the least researched to date.
- Delivers a range of cannabinoids generating the entourage effect (without THC)
- Does more with a smaller serving size
- No psychoactive side effects
- Delivers no THC
- The potentially limited application for sleep
No matter which type or types of CBD you choose, experimenting with dose, repetition, and intake method is the ideal way for you to determine what works best for your body.
