Ep 17 | THC v. THC Free
The real main difference is the compound THC. We have a Broad Spectrum tincture and Full Spectrum tincture. The only real difference in that, of course the potency changes a bit too, is the THC compound. So if you hear someone say wuld you like a Full Spectrum CBD oil, you'll have trace amounts of THC in there. With Broad Spectrum we've used equipment that remediates the THC from the oil and also in that process concentrats that CBD potency again.
Sami and Ryan are back to talk about the differences between THC and THC-free hemp-derived CBD products.
4 different types of CBD oil.
- Full Spectrum Distillate
- Broad Spectrum Distillate
Crude is the first extraction from the plant. Darker in color and lower in CBD. Taste and smell are more potent which isn't always as great for tinctures. This is more commonly used in massage oils or lotions, things that are used topically. Ours typically is 60-65% CBD.
For edibles and tinctures, the distillate is better. It has higher CBD content and a better taste. Our distillate typically runs 70-75% CBD.
The difference between Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum is really THC. We have a Broad Spectrum tincture and Full Spectrum tincture. The only real difference in that, of course, the potency changes a bit too, is the THC compound. So if you hear someone say would you like a Full Spectrum CBD oil, you'll have trace amounts of THC in there. With Broad Spectrum we've used equipment that remediates the THC from the oil and also in that process concentrates that CBD potency again.
How do I buy low dose THC in a Full Spectrum Oil?
If you're shopping for a Full Spectrum oil, something that's hemp-derived will have 0.3% THC or lower. If your state has legal or recreational marijuana make sure it's hemp-derived if you want low dose THC.
Why do you want THC in your oil?
With both THC and CBD you have what's called the Entourage Effect. More research is being done. But it seems that with THC and CBD combined – you get a better effect. Even in small traces, people are seeing more benefits with THC than without.
Why wouldn't you want THC?
THC isn't legal in all states, and without it, you can still find benefits. Or if you don't want a potential high. THC can also create some paranoia or anxiety in people. CBD can counteract that, but some people might not like that effect. You might also have an employer with a THC no tolerance policy.
Is one better than the other?
Not necessarily, but if you can, Full Spectrum is often a better choice. There are so many examples of stories where the low dose of THC really seems to help. The THC is really in low doses so it shouldn't get you high.
