There is a lot of misconception regarding hemp extracts and the use of CBD. What does it mean to have “pure CBD” in a product? Whether you are using CBD tinctures or softgels it all depends on the type of extract that you purchased in order to determine if the contents are pure CBD. Although CBD tinctures and CBD softgels are different, they both contain the same stuff. It is all a matter of how you prefer to ingest your CBD. The type of hemp extract that forms your CBD product makes all of the difference in the world.
What Is Pure CBD?
CBD, which is also known as cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid that comes from a plant that is part of the cannabis genus of flowering plants. This genus of plants is family to cannabis plants that some refer to as marijuana and hemp plants. Hemp plants are low in THC content. CBD and THC are very similar, but very different as well. CBD communicates with the body in a more subtle way than THC does. Where THC directly attaches itself to the cannabinoid receptors that we all have in our endocannabinoid systems and causes psychoactive effects, CBD gently coaxes the receptors to act in one way or the other. In simple terms, CBD is one of many compounds that are in the hemp plant, yet it is very popular because people believe that it possesses great wellness benefits if taken regularly. “Pure” CBD is the cannabinoid CBD without anything else in it.
Full-Spectrum CBD Tinctures and Softgels
You may be familiar with the term “full spectrum.” What it means in the CBD realm is that the hemp extract that makes up the CBD product contains the full spectrum of the hemp plant. In its natural state, the hemp plant contains over 100 different cannabinoids, a plethora of terpenes a whole bunch of flavinoids. Each of these compounds is believed to have a positive effect on the human body. In a full-spectrum CBD product, you have all of these compounds included in your CBD. Technically, in CBD products, CBD is just one of many compounds that are present in a hemp extract. So, anything that is a full-spectrum product will not be pure CBD.
Broad-Spectrum CBD Tinctures and Softgels
When you notice that a CBD product is a broad-spectrum product it means that everything that is extracted from the hemp plant, except for THC, is present in the product. There are obviously a couple of extra steps in the process that remove all traces from THC in the extract, but the end result is a CBD product that has absolutely NO THC in it. However, all of the terpenes and flavonoids that are resent in the hemp plant should be available in a high-quality broad-spectrum product.
CBD Isolate Tinctures and Softgels
A CBD isolate product is about as close to pure CBD as you are going to get. Although this is a highly processed product, the end result is a product that contains nothing more than pure CBD that is extracted from the hemp plant. The reason why it is virtually impossible to get pure CBD products is that the CBD itself has to be infused with some type of oil in order to be carried. Cannabinoids are extremely small and are not easily seen. The only way for a person to enjoy them is to put them into a solution that is visible and easy to ingest.
If you were to smoke a hemp plant, you would get a mixture of CBD and all of the other cannabinoids in the plant because there is no way to separate the cannabinoids at this point. In order to
In the End
In the end, yes, there are tinctures and softgels that can be separated from the rest of the flavinoids, cannabinoids, and terpenes in the plant as an isolate solution. However, it is solely up to the manufacturer if they want to sell this type of product. Are there pure CBD tinctures and softgels on the market? Yes, but only if they are CBD isolate extracts.
