Do you have little experience with CBD oil? Have you been using CBD oil for a while and are you unsure whether you are using the right CBD? Or do you just want to know which type of CBD suits you best? Then this article is for you. In this article we list all types of CBD oil, discuss the benefits of each type and give advice on which type of CBD oil is right for you.
The different types of CBD oil
As you can see in us range of CBD oils, you can choose from dozens of bottles of CBD oil. In addition, it is also possible to do it yourself CBD extract or use CBD crystals for making your own CBD oil. To make a good choice, it is important to know that CBD oils mainly differ in two areas: the percentage of CBD and the type of CBD extract it contains. When looking at types of CBD extract, there are three options:
- Full spectrum
Full spectrum CBD oil
The most powerful CBD oil is oil based on full spectrum CBD. Full spectrum CBD oil is made from a CBD extract obtained through cold CO2 extraction. In this way, all active substances from the cannabis plant end up in the CBD oil. In addition to CBD, full spectrum CBD is also rich in cannabinoids such as CBC, CBN, CBG and THC (always less than the legal maximum of 0,05%), terpenes, flavonoids and phenols. The power of a full spectrum oil is not only in the rich composition, but also in the synergistic effect of the various cannabinoids: they reinforce each other's effect, according to the so-called entourage effect.
When to choose full spectrum CBD?
- You want to take maximum advantage of the synergistic effect of all components in the cannabis extract.
- It is no problem for you to ingest a small amount of THC.
Broad spectrum CBD oil
Broad spectrum CBD oil is made in a similar way to full spectrum CBD oil. The difference is only an extra step, where the THC is completely filtered out of the CBD extract. This leaves an extract that is rich in all active ingredients from the cannabis plant, except for the THC. With broad spectrum CBD you also benefit from the entourage effect, albeit to a lesser extent due to the lack of THC.
When to choose broad spectrum CBD?
- It is important to you that the CBD oil does not contain any THC at all.
- You also want to take advantage of the entourage effect.
CBD isolate comes in the form of crystals and is made by isolating the CBD from the cannabis plant. CBD isolate is 99,6% pure and is completely free of THC and other active substances. You can dissolve this pure CBD in oil or other foods to make your own CBD products. It is also possible to take the pure CBD directly under the tongue.
When to choose CBD crystals?
- You want to make sure you don't ingest any THC.
- You want a pure product that does not contain any active substance besides CBD.
- Also nice if you don't like the taste of CBD oil.
Different percentages of CBD in oil
In addition to the type of CBD, you also have a choice when we look at the CBD content. We offer, among other things 5% CBD oil en 10% CBD oil On. The higher the CBD content, the more powerful the effect per drop will be. In this area, we recommend that novice users start with a low to medium percentage, i.e. 2,5%, 5% or 7,5%. This allows you to dose accurately and you do not accidentally take too high a dose (not that a too high dose is dangerous, but an effect that is too strong can be experienced as unpleasant). Have you taken CBD before and do you know what dose you need each time? In that case, types of CBD oil with a CBD content of 10% to 25% are finer: you need to drip less and on balance you are also more economical.
