Why Choose CBD Isolate Products?
Although including all of the terpenes and cannabinoids found in hemp may bring added potential benefits, it also brings its own challenges. The primary setback is in the flavor department. When including all the extra compounds found in hemp, you end up getting the taste of hemp as well. Although many enjoy or don’t mind the flavor of full spectrum products, for others it can be a major deterrent. This is most noticeable in CBD tinctures which are generally held underneath the tongue for extended periods of time (90 seconds).
For those who are primarily interested in CBD and wouldn’t mind avoiding the other compounds and flavors found in hemp, isolate based products offer more flavor options. It allows companies such as ours to create tinctures with little taste or added flavors that wouldn’t mix well with hemp. Another benefit of isolate based products is that by focusing on CBD alone, they can achieve higher concentrations of CBD.
Although including all of the terpenes and cannabinoids found in hemp may bring added potential benefits, it also brings its own challenges. First is the question of will I fail a drug test? The answer is maybe. It's worth noting that because CBD isn't regulated, you don't ever really know how much THC is really in the Full Plant CBD product your taking. This is why professional athletes and those who do not want THC in their systems use Isolate exclusively.
The second issue is in the flavor department. When including all the extra compounds found in hemp, you end up getting the taste of hemp as well. So there may be additional benefits derived from THC and other compounds in Full Spectrum products, at this point in time, there isn’t enough scientific research to determine what impact, if any, including the other compounds has as it relates to CBD products. For now, CBD users only have testimonial evidence to go on.
Note: Currently the only FDA medically approved cannabidiol (CBD) treatment for epilepsy is derived from the CBD molecule exclusively.
