Education is so important in the cannabis industry, especially because the stigma around high THC cannabis, a.k.a. “marijuana”, a plant known and celebrated for its therapeutic healing properties, has cast a fearful cloud over uneducated minds. What many people don’t know, is that there are serious benefits of full spectrum CBD usage–in all ages!

It is especially pertinent to have the proper knowledge concerning the CBD products that you’re consuming at home. Whether it be pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, or any other number of reasons that you could be taking CBD, it’s important to know what type of CBD you’re taking and, most importantly, what it means. Here is a link to the Top 5 Benefits people seek.

Several Types of CBD Exist

There are many different types of CBD on the market today. Some examples include full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate. CBD users are not recreational cannabis users. They are individuals looking for daily relief as we were.

Full Spectrum:

This type of CBD contains numerous other minor cannabinoids and terpenoids found in hemp along with CBD. Examples include Genesis Blend Full Spectrum Extract by Kentucky Cannabis Company / Bluegrass Hemp Oil. It has over 12 natural hemp cannabinoids, not including the numerous terpenes it contains.  Full Spectrum products should contain trace amounts of THC and other beneficial cannabinoids besides CBD. These natural hemp cannabinoids are natural to hemp.

Full Spectrum CBD Oil contains offers health benefits such as help with anxiety, stress, and pain. Full Spectrum CBD Oil has no psychoactive effects. A full spectrum product is the best option for users looking for the best effects from CBD oil. One of the other benefits of full-spectrum CBD is the assurance in its natural cultivation and extraction–if a company is truly producing a full-spectrum product, there will be no added substances or risk of chemicals.

Broad Spectrum:

This type is like the full spectrum, except it contains no THC. Broad Spectrum might contain some cannabinoids in hemp other than CBD; however, unlike Full Spectrum, it does not contain any THC. It has been altered through processes to remove all THC from the extract. Making it less effective than Full Spectrum.  THC tetrahydrocannabinol with CBD cannabidiol and other natural cannabinoids and terpenes benefit the endocannabinoid system. The removal of THC from CBD Oil is solely done for marketing narrative. No CBD Oil has any psychoactive effects. Studies show that Full Spectrum is the highest grade possible.

Sadly, many users fall victim to these companies’ false claims about Broad Spectrum. People  seek out broad spectrum CBD products because of employment issues. Some choose it in response to the general public’s taboo branding over THC and its effects.  Those looking for health benefits such as anti-inflammatory properties or helping with sleep disorders like insomnia should avoid Broad Spectrum products. These people don’t know that, although our products are full spectrum, the Bluegrass Hemp Oil website can provide our customers with direct access to the lab testing information outlining the specific product they have purchased.

CBD isolate:

The poorest form of CBD available. CBD isolate is a powder substance, completely free of the naturally occurring flavonoids, cannabinoids, and terpenes from the original plant. Studies show that isolated and synthetic cannabinoids are dangerous, as well as, less effective! No real difference exits between synthetic or isolated for the userSeveral deaths have been reported because of lab altered cannabinoids. Natural Full Spectrum cannabinoids are completely safe but isolated synthetic isolated kills. Many products on the market fall into the isolated cannabinoid category. Buyers have to wary about these products imported from countries like China with zero to little of quality policies.

The Food and Drug Administration has warned of the dangers of isolated cannabinoids. Many states have passed cannabis laws and legislation against isolated synthetic cannabinoids. With the emergence of hemp and the success of full-spectrum products like Genesis Blend full CBD Oil, many fake products seek to steal money from unwary consumers.  As discussed, some states in the United States have passed laws against isolated synthetic. This form of CBD can be chemically altered into Delta-8 THC.

Delta-8’s legal “loophole” lies in the fact that Delta-8 THC is made from CBD, which is derived from hemp. Through a process known as isomerization.  A series of steps, involving an advanced knowledge of organic chemistry and a detailed list of laboratory supplies are carried out. Thus converting CBD into Delta-8 THC. Sadly, here is a link to a Delta-8 death. This is did not have to happen.
