When it comes to CBD products, there are three main types of extract: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum and CBD isolate. CBD isolate. CBD isolate is generally less expensive than broader-spectrum extracts and only contains pure CBD. Broader-spectrum extracts contain other cannabinoids like CBG, CBC and perhaps legal concentrations of THC. The addition of these cannabinoids and other hemp plant compounds like terpenes are believed to increase the potency of CBD’s effects, a phenomenon coined “the entourage effect”. Again, the cannabinoid profile should be supported by a lab report.
And last but not least, lab reports!
CBD is a phytocannabinoid derived from the hemp plant. When CBD is extracted from the hemp plant it is added to a carrier oil, like coconut MCT, hemp seed or olive oil so that it can be readily absorbed by the body. CBD oil can be taken sublingually or added to other products to make edibles, drinks or applied to the skin.
What to look for when buying a CBD product
CBD blew up in the UK as word spread of its therapeutic potential for common ailments like stress, anxiety, skin issues and pain. Cannabis and cannabis-derived products had previously been banned for sale and consumption since the 1920s, but seemingly out of nowhere, specialist CBD stores started cropping up on the high street after it was removed from the controlled substances list in 2016. Over two years, the size of the UK CBD market grew from £100 million to £300 million, and the number of users jumped from thousands to millions. Word of mouth was the key reason CBD shot to fame, after all, most of us would rather take a recommendation from a trusted friend over a big shiny marketing campaign. Sales soared but the research was and still is slow at backing up the claims made by CBD users. This grey area coupled with not much being known about CBD, it wasn’t long before cowboy brands appeared on the market, selling snake oils made up of low to no CBD at premium prices. A study found that such mislabelled products on the shelves of the retailer giant Holland & Barrett.
