Everyone has their own reason for cannabis use, and those who use CBD specific products are typically looking for a sense of relaxation, calm and positivity, not for a hazey buzz.
For that reason, some CBD users shopped exclusively for CBD Isolate products. As a singular extract of CBD from the cannabis plant, CBD Isolate is in a sense the purest form of CBD. It contains none of the cannabis plant’s other components such as terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and most of all, other cannabinoids, such as THC. It’s still a common assumption that CBD offers the most “health benefits” because it is so pure.
First, what are the differences in CBD.
The other best-known type of CBD is Full-Spectrum CBD. This type of CBD is available in all the same forms as Isolate, including Full-Spectrum CBD vape cartridges. But unlike Isolate, when Full-Spectrum CBD is extracted from the cannabis extract, it isn’t fully isolated from the other components of the plant. As a result, a Full-Spectrum CBD includes all the chemicals derived from the plant it’s extracted from. It’s now known that Full-Spectrum CBD is just as effective as CBD Isolate—possibly even more so, since all the plant’s compounds work together to create an “entourage effect” that strengthens each compound’s individual effects. The only downside is that Full-Spectrum CBD products will typically contain a very small amount of THC. While it’s not enough to cause any legality issues, some have reported feeling a slight “high” effect that they weren’t necessarily looking for.
This may be the reason why a third type of CBD product has grown in popularity in recent months. This is Broad-Spectrum CBD, and it’s made by either removing the THC compound from the full-spectrum extract, or by extracting each of the cannabis plant’s compounds in isolation (the way you would with CBD Isolate) and then recombining them (without THC).
Broad Spectrum CBD Advantages
The great advantage with Broad Spectrum is that it offers the ability to control specific cannabinoid ratios. While Full-Spectrum CBD products can only reflect the cannabinoid makeup of each individual plant they’re extracted from, the recombining process of making Broad-Spectrum CBD allows for greatly improved consistency, simply by putting together the same ratios in every batch. This means that every CBD vape cartridge you use will offer the same experience and benefits.

That said, some CBD product brands will cut corners in making their Broad-Spectrum CBD products. When shopping for Broad-Spectrum CBD cartridges, make sure to look for companies that have a Certificate of Analysis conducted by a third-party lab. You can view Honey Oil’s Certificate of Analysis’ for all of their products on the Lab Results Page.
When you can find a reputable company that offers Broad-Spectrum CBD vape cartridges and other products, it’s worth spending the slightly higher price to experience the entire range of benefits offered by the cannabis plant, while being assured of no psychoactive effect from THC. If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the well-being boost of multiple cannabinoids without worrying about the possible effects of ingesting THC, Broad-Spectrum CBD may be exactly what you want.
