Today, we’ll start the talk about pure CBD and discuss how it compares to what is called full-spectrum CBD which is taken directly from the cannabis plant.
Let me quickly explain the difference between full-spectrum CBD and pure CBD: Full-Spectrum: Contains all cannabis plant compounds, including terpenes and other cannabinoids.
Pure CBD (also known as isolate) is just what it says, pure. It only contains the CBD compound. It usually comes from hemp plants
which usually contain very low amounts of THC.
To determine which is best for you, you’ll want to look at how each type impact your body. CBD Pure (Isolate) benefits are often based on ensuring you take an exact dose and figuring out what that should be can take
time and patience.
On the other hand, people who wish to take higher dosages of CBD may prefer the isolate/pure since the effects of the drug increase as the dosage does. Whereas with full-spectrum often has a more potent effect than pure CBD does and many studies have shown that the health benefits overall (as well as studies focusing on specific areas of pain management) are typically greater.
In fact, there is a wide range of health benefits associated with the use of full-spectrum CBD including:
Muscle spasm relief
Anti-anxiety (and panic attacks)
General pain relief
Anti – Seizure
Also it’s also helpful with managing inflammation while working as an antioxidant
So whether CBD pure or full-spectrum is best, it really depends. The best thing you can do is spend some time researching various sources prior to making your decision.

But what about Cannibis Oil vs Hemp Oil do I here you ask?
In the world of botany, there are basically two kinds of cannabis: hemp plants and drug plants. Hemp is cannabis grown for fiber and/or seed oil. Drug plants include THC-rich (intoxicating) plants and CBD-rich (non-intoxicating) plants. You may also have heard the THC-rich plants referred to as marijuana or weed, especially if you’re
talking about the flower tops of the plant.
The main difference between these two types is the resin content. Industrial hemp plants are low resin. By law, they must contain
less than 0.3 percent THC. Drug plants are high resin. Industrial varieties are usually grown from seed and yield as many as one hundred tall bamboo-like plants per square meter.
They have skimpy foliage and are manufactured into many different products (like paper, cloth, and edible oil). Drug plants, on the other hand, are usually grown from asexually reproduced clones. They generally yield one to two bushy plants per square meter. They’re hand-harvested, dried, trimmed, and cured.
The flowers are then consumed for either their intoxicating or medicinal effects. In the two-sentence definition of “marijuana” from the 1970 Controlled Substances Act, the word “resin” was mentioned many times.
That’s because it’s all about how much the plant has. In essence, the Controlled Substance Act asserts that certain parts of the cannabis plant are exempt from the legal definition
of marijuana. It’s the sticky resin (and its derivatives) in the flowers and leaves which were explicitly forbidden.
This should make it clear that hemp seed oil is not the same as CBD-rich oil extracted from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis
plant. Oil pressed from hemp seeds has no CBD, no THC, no cannabinoids to speak of. It’s great for making varnish, paint, soap, food supplements, and other products, though. To get CBD, however, you must turn to the flowers and leaves of the plant.
So how much should you take?
It doesn’t take much to feel the medical benefits of cannabis, a few tokes on some resin poised bud should work for most people. However, there is less toxic ways to benefit therapeutically from cannabis.
There are many ways to administer canabis in non-intoxicating ways. Due to lack of knowledge and understanding physicians don’t prescribe it In fact, a lot of doctors don’t study it medical school.
According to a 2017 survey, few of them felt qualified to counsel their patients on cannabis use, dosage, CBD to THC ratios, which mode of administration to use, or even side effects.
You’re looking at a wide range of products which have yet to be standardized, even in states where cannabis is legal. So how do you go about working out what’s the correct dose. ”A familiar consensus is that for any health benefits is that you need to feel the high. This just isn’t so… micro doses have shown to be effective for symptom relief.
A study in 2005 showed that there was a “significant inhibition of disease progression”.
There are basically three types of resin-rich cannabis products:
1. Type 1 (THC-dominant), which has high THC and low CBDand is used for recreation.
2. Type 2 (THC & CBD), which has mixed amounts of each. A mixture between the two, so a little more mellow as Type 1.
3. Type 3 (CBD-dominant), high CBD to low THC ratio, Has all the therepeutic benefits with out the “stoned aspect”.
