When you hear the world “spectrum,” what do you think of?
When I hear it, my mind is filled with images rainbows, light or color.
But did you know CBD gummies have spectrums, too?
And we’re not talking about the color of the leaves.
Today we are discussing the different types of CBD gummies that are available on the market today.
So what are CBD gummies spectrums?
In the world of CBD (cannabidiol), spectrum has a different meaning.
CBD is one of OVER 100 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant, known as cannabinoids.
These compounds interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system to produce various effects.
Think of each of these cannabinoids as a color.
When we talk about spectrums we are just talking about which cannabinoids are, or are not, in our CBD gummies product.
And knowing what is in your product is a big part of using CBD gummies safely.
Let’s keep moving.
We will discuss the three main spectrums of CBD: full spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD isolate.
We’ll also answer some common questions about these spectrums, such as:
- What are the different spectrums of CBD gummies?
- What spectrum of CBD gummies is best?
- What are the levels of CBD gummies?
At Bradford Wellness Co, we believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to health and wellness.
Our goal is to provide you with the information you need to make an informed, healthy decision for yourself.
What are the different spectrums of CBD gummies?
There are three main spectrums of CBD gummies:
- full spectrum
- broad spectrum
- and CBD isolate.
Each spectrum contains a different range of cannabinoids and other compounds found in the hemp plant.
They’re all considered safe as long as your using a quality product.
Let’s take a closer look at each of these spectrums.
Full Spectrum CBD
Full spectrum CBD gummies have what is know as whole-plant extract.
They contain ALL of the naturally occurring compounds found in the hemp plant.
This includes not only CBD but also other cannabinoids like THC, CBN, and CBG, as well as terpenes, flavonoids, and essential fatty acids.
The idea behind full spectrum CBD is that the various compounds work together synergistically, creating what is known as the “entourage effect.”
Basiacally, this means that the combined effect of all these compounds is greater than the sum of their individual effects, potentially leading to more significant wellness benefits like pain or anxiety relief.
It is important to note that full-spectrum hemp CBD DOES contain trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%), which is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana.
However, this small amount of THC is not enough to produce a “high” or cause any psychoactive effects.
Broad Spectrum CBD gummies
Broad spectrum CBD gummies are similar to full spectrum CBD in that they contains a wide range of cannabinoids and other compounds found in the hemp plant.
However, broad spectrum CBD undergoes additional processing to do one thing: remove all traces of THC.
This makes broad spectrum CBD an excellent option for those who want to experience the potential benefits of the entourage effect without consuming any THC.
It can be particularly beneficial for individuals who are sensitive to THC or who need to avoid it due to drug testing or legal reasons.
CBD Isolate gummies
CBD isolate gummies have the purest form of CBD, containing CBD oil with 99% or more of cannabidiol.
It is created by extracting CBD from the hemp plant and then isolating it from all other compounds, including other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
People who choose CBD isolate gummies may do so because they want to focus solely on the potential benefits of CBD without the presence of any other compounds.
CBD isolate can also be an ideal choice for those who are sensitive to other cannabinoids or prefer a product with no discernible taste or aroma.
What spectrum of CBD is best?
That’s like asking, “Which color is best.”
The real question we ask each other is, “What is your favorite color?”
There’s no wrong answer here.
The best spectrum of CBD depends on what’s best for you – does it meet your preferences and needs?
Some people may find that full spectrum CBD gummies help them the most due to the entourage effect.
On the other hand, others may prefer broad spectrum CBD to avoid any traces of THC.
Similarly, some individuals may choose CBD isolate because they want a product free of any other compounds or because they are sensitive to certain cannabinoids or terpenes.
Ultimately, the best spectrum of CBD for you will depend on your unique circumstances and health goals.
It may be helpful to try different spectrums and products to determine which one works best for you.
What are the levels of CBD gummies?
When people talk about CBD levels, they’re talking about the concentration or potency of CBD in a product.
This is different than CBD gummies spectrums, and is typically measured in milligrams (mg) per serving or per container.
CBD gummies can range from low potency (5-15 mg per serving) to high potency (50-100 mg per serving) or even higher.
The ideal CBD level for you will depend on factors like your body weight, metabolism, and the specific health issues you’re looking to address.
It is generally recommended to start with a lower potency product and gradually increase the dosage until you find the right balance.
Pretend there’s a party
Here’s another way to think about CBD gummies spectrums.
Imagine a family gathering: this could meet a lot of things to a lot of different people.
Bear with me an use your imagination.
A full spectrum gathering includes every family member, from your fun-loving uncle (CBD) to your controversial cousin (THC), along with various other relatives (CBN, CBG, terpenes, flavonoids, etc.).
Each person has their own unique personality, and when they all come together, they create an unforgettable experience (the entourage effect).
The presence of each family member enhances the overall atmosphere and contributes to the synergy of the event.
In contrast, a broad spectrum gathering is similar to the full spectrum one, with most of the family members present, except for the controversial cousin (THC).
This gathering still offers a vibrant atmosphere and a sense of synergy among the attendees, but without any potential issues or concerns that the controversial cousin might bring.
It’s an excellent option for those who prefer to enjoy the family dynamics without the risk of any complications.
Finally, a CBD isolate gathering is like having a one-on-one meeting with your favorite uncle (CBD) only.
You appreciate his company and the benefits his presence brings, but none of the other family members are around.
This type of gathering is perfect for those who want a focused, simplified experience without the distractions or interactions with other relatives.
While it may not have the same level of synergy as the other gatherings, it offers a pure and straightforward connection with the one family member you value the most.
