The concern for the quality of certified CBD products is real among retailers and consumers. With so many CBD products offered in the market, consumers want to value their money by buying certified CBD and quality products. CBD can be isolate, full-spectrum, or broad-spectrum, which determines the benefits derived by a user.
Full-spectrum CBD has all the naturally occurring compounds of the cannabis Sativa plant, including THC. Full-spectrum CBD derived from the hemp plant delivers an “entourage” effect and allows the greatest benefit CBD can offer. Broad-spectrum CBD includes all naturally occurring compounds but has no THC. CBD isolate is a pure form of CBD that is extracted. It contains no THC.
Full-Spectrum and Broad-Spectrum Certified CBD
Deciding which certified CBD product to use is personal and depends on your specific product’s expectations and desires. If you want to enjoy all the cannabis plant compounds, full-spectrum will work for you. On the other hand, if you want the benefits of flavonoids and terpenes but no THC, broad-spectrum CBD will work for you. When considering broad-spectrum, one might consider the fact that Terpenes have therapeutic and health-boosting advantages.
Whatever your need for CBD product is, quality production is vital and runs across the whole process, from farming to the finished product.
Terpenes are a diverse group of compounds found in many plants, including Cannabis. They are unique to the plant in which they are derived and can play a different role in the body. Some might help promote relaxation while others may assist with stress relief, pain management, or inflammation.
Processed plants for CBD extraction should have a high concentration of cannabidiol and low THC concentrations.
Cannabis plants grown in fields with high pollutants, including heavy metals and pesticides, may fail a lab test. A Certificate of Analysis (COA) makes a significant difference when marketing CBD products.
The Farm Bill’s passage in 2018 legalized CBD’s use in the US and consequently increased the products’ demand. However, it brought about stringent compliance requirements, which is addressable by producing high-quality products in the previously unregulated market.
