With the amount of information on the internet surrounding cannabis, it can get a little confusing. While words like “Full Spectrum” and “Isolate” may seem like terms a marketer thought up, they are actually incredibly important distinctions used to describe different types of Cannabidiol (CBD).
But, before we get into that, let’s review what CBD is and why we love it so much!
CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. CBD is the second-most abundant cannabinoid in cannabis, following THC, the cannabinoid that produces intoxicating effects. CBD has many benefits, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-anxiety, and seizure-suppressant properties.
If you have read our blogs before, you’ll be familiar with the term “full spectrum“, as we have discussed it with regards to THC. But how does full spectrum pertain to CBD?
Full Spectrum products contain CBD, as well as other properties from the cannabis plant. Full-spectrum CBD products are believed to benefit from the ‘entourage effect,’ a theory that the ingredients in cannabis work better together than in isolation.
Full-spectrum CBD products contain flavonoids and terpenes—ingredients that bring therapeutic benefits, along with scents and flavours—and may include other cannabinoids, including trace amounts of THC. For this reason, full-spectrum products are not recommended for people who are sensitive to THC.
If you are someone who would like to capitalize on the entourage effect, these Full Spectrum CBD products will be right up your alley!
Our long awaited Full Spectrum CBD Tincture was released last month and the positive response has been overwhelming. Available as MCT or olive oil, the Full Spectrum CBD Tincture capitalizes on the hundreds of cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant.

In short, isolate is like the CBD version of THC distillate. CBD Isolate is pure CBD and has removed all other compounds, including terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids. It is ideal for those who are sensitive to the taste and smell of cannabis because it is both odorless and flavourless.
While CBD isolate cannot benefit from the entourage effect, it is loved by many for its ease of use and the fact that it is non-intoxicating.
