CBD 101 – Learn The Lingo Around CBD

The incredible demand for CBD has the hemp industry experiencing a gold rush of sorts, you see CBD being sold everywhere.. At a minimum, folks want to learn more about the products they  constantly hear about. Learning about CBD has its challenges because to many the terminology is new and unfamiliar. That is why we organized a list of the most common CBD terms. Think of this as CBD 101, where you will learn about hemp and CBD.

The Most Common Terms

Hemp: To many people Hemp is a often confused as marijuana. This is false. Think of hemp as a cousin of marijuana. They are in the same family Cannabis sativa, and they share many of the same compounds (cannabinoids), but are different. The biggest difference is that hemp is federally legal and it can not produce enough THC to get high from.

Cannabinoids. These are the active compounds found in the hemp plant. Some species of hemp contain more than a hundred cannabinoids, the exact number is unknown. New cannabinoids are identified regularly as well as the potential health benefits they may possess. The two cannabinoids with the highest concentration in the plant are THC and CBD.

Cannabidiol. This cannabinoid is most commonly referred to by its abbreviated name CBD. Cannabidiol is the 2nd most prevalent active ingredient found in the hemp plant. CBD has no intoxicating effects, and it is under going serious worldwide research for its therapeutic potential.

THC. Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, is the only cannabinoid that produces intoxicating effects and can get you “high”. Unlike hemp, marijuana which produces high levels of THC is still federally illegal. 

Full Spectrum. Full Spectrum products made from the legal hemp plant contain all the active compounds found in the plant. These include CBD and any other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavinoids and the small amount of THC found in the plant. Federal law requires the THC level to be processed and reduced to a maximum of 0.3% or less. Full Spectrum products provide what is known the entourage effect.

Broad Spectrum. Broad Spectrum products made from the legal hemp plant contain all the active compounds found in the plant. These include CBD and any other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavinoids. All traces of THC are  so broad spectrum products are THC FREE. Broad Spectrum products can also provide what is known the entourage effect.

Isolate. Isolate hemp is commonly called pure cbd bewcause it is processed to a powder form that is at least 99% pure cannabidiol. It contains little to no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or flavonoids, and has no THC presence.

CO2 ExtractionAn expensive process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to pull the desired cannabinoids, terpenes, oils and waxes from hemp plant material. As the industry standard for ethical hemp extraction, it does not introduce harmful chemicals into the product as with traditional solvent extractions and is therefore considered the safest and cleanest method to extract compounds from plants. 

Entourage EffectThe theory that THC and CBD work more efficiently together than alone to create greater benefit, hence the appeal of Full Spectrum products.

 

The Products

Tincture. Hemp extract (full spectrum, broad spectrum or isolate) that is infused with a carrier oil, usually MCT oil or hemp seed oil, intended for oral consumption. In traditional herbal context, the word tincture refers to an alcohol base. Today, it commonly refers to oil-based infusions as well, despite this being something of a misnomer.

Topical. Hemp extract infused with a number of skin safe ingredients for external use. For example, body butters and moisturizing creams.

Edible. While CBD now appears in a number of foods (baked goods, confections, beverages) the term most commonly refers to gummies or capsules within the CBD industry.

Aging, working out and CBD.

Aging, working out and CBD

High intensity workouts are not the only way to lose weight and stay fit. As we age low-impact workouts can also be amazingly effective.

If one of your goals is to start a new exercise routine but are not sure how to begin and  be mindful of your body, keep reading, we are going to introduce you to 5 very effective low-impact workouts you can start right away.

While it is true high intensity workouts will burn the most calories in the shortest amount of time, they also may cause major stress on our hips, knees, elbows, and shoulders especially as we get older.  As we age high intensity workouts with their repetitive impacts and motions can result in damage to joints and muscles. The fear of injury and discomfort prevents many of us from getting started.

Take CBD to help with recovery after a workoutBut there is no reason to not try being healthy and fit when you can add CBD to your post workout routine. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD can help muscles recover quicker and add to the natural sense of balance the endorphins your exercise already released.

Elliptical:

The elliptical is easily a best option when it comes to putting less stress on your arms and legs. Try a 20-minute interval workout. It will surprise you how easy it is to work up a good sweat and burn a surprising number of calories. Using an Elliptical will strengthen your entire body in a short period of time.

Walking:
Say goodbye to the high impact of running with its sore knees, sprained ankles and muscle injuries. Walking, whether on a treadmill, around the block, or on a trail, is a fantastic way to get low impact exercise. Walking will get your cardiovascular system pumping as well as get you some fresh air. It is easy to increase the difficulty if you find your walk to be too easy and not exerting enough, walk up hills, use ankle weights, or speed up.

StairMaster:

The StairMaster at your gym is one of the most effective ways to burn calories while being the easiest on your body. I am sure you have noticed how winded you get when taking the stairs instead of an elevator. That is why climbing stairs is one of the best cardio workouts you can do. Climbing stairs at every opportunity, at work, in your home or in the gym will help you to burn a lot of calories very quickly while strengthening your leg muscles.

Yoga:
Get the benefit of serenity while you work out, that is the beauty of Yoga. There is a reason Yoga has been so popular going back thousands of years. It works. Feel the burn without feeling the pain. Use your muscles to hold your own body weight in positions that stretch your muscles and relieve pain. Burn calories in an all-encompassing workout from the comfort of your own or a local Yoga studio.


Swimming:
Ever wonder why swimmers are always in incredible shape? Swimming laps is perhaps the best low-impact exercise for your body. It may not seem like a tough workout at first, but you will be surprised how few laps it takes to really get your heart rate up. You will burn a lot of calories while getting a full-body workout. Swimming strengthens your core, legs, arms, and back.

Use Warner’s Best CBD after these 5 Low-Impact Workouts and experience fantastic relief, recover faster and don’t worry about that post workout recovery.

The Difference Between Broad Spectrum CBD and Full Spectrum CBD

Posted on Leave a comment

With there being so many different types of CBD out there it can be a little complicated to find the best CBD products for you. There’s Isolate CBD products, Broad Spectrum CBD products, and Full Spectrum CBD products. Each variant has its own set of benefits that may benefit one person more than another. Someone that suffers from chronic pain might find more benefit from a Full Spectrum product while someone who uses CBD for sleep might benefit more from a Broad Spectrum product. That’s why it is important to understand the difference between Isolate CBD products and Broad Spectrum CBD products, as well as the difference between Broad Spectrum CBD and Full Spectrum CBD.

In order to understand the difference between Broad Spectrum CBD and Full Spectrum CBD products you must first understand what CBD is. CBD (short for cannabidiol) is one of many cannabinoids that comes from the hemp plant. When CBD is extracted from the hemp plant all of the cannabinoids are extracted from the hemp plant as well which includes THC(known for psychoactive effect in marijuana). For hemp to be legally grown in the United States it must test positive for less than .3% THC.

The difference between the three types of CBD(isolate, broad spectrum, and full spectrum) stems from the amount of cannabinoids that are in each product.

Isolate CBD- a product that contains only CBD and no other cannabinoids from the hemp plant.

Broad Spectrum CBD- a product that contains all of the cannabinoids from the hemp plant except for the THC. (all broad spectrum products are 100% THC Free)

Full Spectrum CBD- a product that contains all of the cannabinoids from the hemp plant including the THC. (for CBD to be sold “over the counter” it must contain less than .3% THC)

 

Knowing the difference between CBD products could help you find the product that is going to help you the most!

Warner’s Best – Broad Spectrum CBD

Connecticut based Warner’s Best CBD is proud to announce it will soon have Broad Spectrum CBD products in its inventory. 

1000mg Broad Spectrum Orange Flavored CBD oil
Great tasting Broad Spectrum CBD – NO THC
Great tasting Braod Spectrum CBD - 1500 mg - THC Free
Great Tasting Broad Spectrum CBD – NO THC

 

What is Broad Spectrum CBD?

Broad spectrum CBD like Full Spectrum CBD still has all the compounds found within the plant; however, like CBD Isolate, the THC is completely removed.

Because Broad Spectrum CBD contains multiple cannabinoids, it still delivers the enhanced benefits of the “entourage effect,” without the risk of psychoactive effects of THC.

Broad Spectrum CBD

  • Contains all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils extracted from the plant except  THC
  • No risk of psychoactive effects
  • Stronger flavors and odors
  • Will not test positive for THC*
Broad Spectrum CBD Ideal For:
  • Individuals with conditions that CBD isolate alone could not alleviate
  • Individuals with sensitivity to THC or get drug tested
  • Individuals living in states that have strict THC-laws
  • First-time users that are hesitant about THC

In summary, any of the three CBD types can be beneficial when used to help manage sleep, inflammation based conditions and anxiety and stress.

If drug testing is part of the equation than the Isolate or Broad Spectrum products are the ones to consider. If nervous about THC in general, than Isolate or Broad Spectrum are the better options. If you live in a THC friendly state than any of the products is right for you.

Be sure to read the label and always check for a COA (Certificate of Analysis). The Lab doing these quality control tests should be DEA and FDA registered and actively involved in the MMJ testing regime of the state they are licensed to operate in.  The COA should clearly identify the amount of CBD, THC and any other cannabinoids present. If the results are not clear or easy to understand contact the lab for an explanation or steer clear of the product. And always be wary of gas station CBD.

* The sensitivity of a specific drug tests parameters determines how much of any detected substance is required before the test registers a positive reading.  A zero THC product should never test positive for THC. However, it must be remembered, that CBD products are blended and manufactured in facilities that do process THC. In rare instances it is possible that THC residue can find its way onto a bottle or container and effect a drug test.

When shopping for CBD, you have probably noticed that products have different labels such as Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, or CBD Isolate.

Even though they are all CBD, they are not the same.

So, what do they mean and how are they different?

Put simply, they are used to define which type of CBD is used in a particular product. Each type is unique and understanding the differences is essential for any CBD user.

Let’s start by talking about cannabinoids in general.

What Are Cannabinoids

The Hemp plant has a number of compounds known as cannabinoids.

The best known are CBD and THC, however there are over a hundred other cannabinoids naturally occurring within different Cannabis strains.

We are slowly learning how each cannabinoid affects the body.

For example, while THC delivers the psychoactive effects associated with “getting high,” CBD does not. In fact, CBD appears to counteract the psychoactive effects of THC. Basically combining the two compounds mellows the high and lowers the anxiousness that some folks experience when using THC.

We call the full collection of these cannabinoids the “cannabinoid spectrum.”

The Cannabinoid Spectrum

The specific cannabinoid spectrum contained within a product determines whether a product is Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, or CBD isolate.

To create a quality CBD product, the cannabinoid content is extracted from the plant using a supercritical CO2 extraction process. Extraction methods using solvents result in inferior and potentially dangerous products.  We will discuss extraction processes in another post.

During the extraction process, all the various compounds in the plant are also extracted, including terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids.

Once extracted, different processes refine the extract further. 

The contents of this refined extract are what determines if the CBD extract is full spectrum, broad spectrum, or CBD isolate.

What is CBD Isolate?

An isolate is the purest form of a compound. It is produced by extracting that compound from its environment and isolating it.

CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD. It is produced by removing all the terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids.

What is Full Spectrum CBD?

Full spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all naturally occurring compounds found in the plant. These include terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids.

This full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils work together to enhance the therapeutic benefits of each individual cannabinoid. This is commonly referred to as the “entourage effect.

In a study from the Lautenberg Center for General Tumor Immunology in Jerusalem, researchers found that test subjects who recieved full spectrum CBD experienced higher levels of relief when compared with subjects receiving CBD isolate. The results showed that full spectrum CBD provided enhanced effects at higher dosages, while the effects of CBD Isolate remained  consistent despite increased dosages.

What is Broad Spectrum CBD?

Broad spectrum CBD like Full Spectrum CBD still has all the compounds found within the plant; however, like CBD Isolate, the THC is completely removed.

Because Broad Spectrum CBD contains multiple cannabinoids, it still delivers the enhanced benefits of the “entourage effect,” without the risk of psychoactive effects of THC.

Which Type of CBD is Right for You?

No one type of CBD is better than the other.

Each one of us has different needs, and this is where the discussion needs to begin.

CBD Isolate

  • The purest form of CBD
  • No risk of Psychoactive effects
  • Tasteless and Odorless
  •  Will not test positive for THC*

Full Spectrum

  • Contains all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils extracted from the plant including THC
  • May have psychoactive effects
  • Stronger flavors and odors
  • May show on drug tests*
  •  THC content may cause legal issues

Broad Spectrum

  • Contains all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils extracted from the plant except  THC
  • No risk of psychoactive effects
  • Stronger flavors and odors
  • Will not test positive for THC*
Isolate Ideal For:
  • Individuals who were recommended to specifically take high doses of CBD
  • Individuals with sensitivity to THC or other cannabinoids
  • Individuals who regularly undergo drug screening tests
  • Individuals who prefer light flavors or no flavor
  • Individuals living in states that have strict THC-laws
  • First-time users that may be hesitant about other cannabinoids
Full Spectrum Ideal For:
  • Individuals who are recommended specific THC to CBD ratio
  • Individuals with more severe conditions or conditions that CBD isolate and Broad Spectrum could not alleviate
  • Individuals living in states where Cannabis is legal
Broad Spectrum Ideal For:
  • Individuals with conditions that CBD isolate alone could not alleviate
  • Individuals with sensitivity to THC
  • Individuals living in states that have strict THC-laws
  • First-time users that are hesitant about THC

In summary, any of the three CBD types can be beneficial when used to help manage sleep, inflammation based conditions and anxiety and stress.

If drug testing is part of the equation than the Isolate or Broad Spectrum products are the ones to consider. If nervous about THC in general, than Isolate or Broad Spectrum are the better options. If you live in a THC friendly state than any of the products is right for you.

Be sure to read the label and always check for a COA (Certificate of Analysis).
