23rd Nov 2019

When scouting out the best CBD product for your daily needs, it’s important to understand the differences among the many CBD product types. For some CBD users, the targeted application of a CBD topical is the best option. Those who want the fastest possible results often prefer a CBD vape pen.

While those who prefer ingestible CBD always have the option of selecting a CBD tincture or our flavorful gummies, CBD softgels or capsules are most often preferred by those looking for a convenient, flavorless way to get their daily CBD.  Get to know differences between these popular products...

Differentiating Between Softgel Options

If you have decided to purchase our CBD softgels, you will want to choose between full spectrum CBD softgels or isolate CBD softgels. The following information could help with your decision:

Full Spectrum CBD

Full spectrum CBD contains all the cannabinoids and plant terpenes found in the original plant, including trace amounts of THC (0.3 percent or less). Those who prefer full spectrum CBD are often taking advantage of the Entourage Effects, a phenomenon that explains the ability of individual plant elements to enhance the effects of the others.

CBD Isolate

CBD isolate does not contain anything other than 99+ percent pure CBD. All of the other plant components, including THC, are removed during extraction and processing. That means that CBD isolate is flavorless, odorless, and ideal for those looking for a 0% THC product.
