The UK is reported to have over 1.3 million regular CBD users, with millions more saying they have or will be willing to try it. It is not surprising to be overwhelmed by the variety and choice. We know CBD can be daunting, so here are the most common CBD FAQs. We want you to be comfortable on your journey.

CBD is short for cannabidiol. CBD is a plant-based cannabinoid, also known as a phytocannabinoid. They are present in many plants, but CBD is found at its highest concentrations in cannabis and hemp plants. CBD is associated with the positive therapeutic properties of cannabis.

THC is an abbreviation for tetrahydrocannabinol. Thc is a plant-based cannabinoid, found in its highest concentrations in a cannabis plant. This is the compound responsible for the high caused by cannabis. It has therapeutic benefits, but it is mainly known for the intoxicating or psychoactive effects it causes.

CBD isolate is a refined accurate extract. It only contains CBD and no other cannabinoids. Isolation happens through co2 extraction and crystal precipitation. Isolate is more mathematically consistent, ensuring a more precise product. The distillate has a wider/ broader spread of cannabinoids, it usually contains elements of other terpenes, lipids, fats, waxes and other cannabinoids including THC. The main issue with distillate is the lack of mathematical consistency. The distillate is never the same. Batch to batch, supplier to supplier. CBD content changes, terpenes change, and the intrinsic benefits of the extract are always changing. The distillate is very valuable when it is understood and used properly.

Broad-spectrum refers to a cannabinoid extract that contains a wide spread of legal cannabinoids. A broad-spectrum extract will contain, other cannabinoids, waxes, lipids, fats, residual plant matter and oils, flavonoids and terpenoids. For a broad spectrum to be legal, it needs to be THC free. Therefore a true legal broad-spectrum extract is very rare as there are many cannabinoids that are illegal in the UK. CBD isolate is a further refined extract. It only contains CBD and no other cannabinoids. Isolate is only one of the Cannabinoids in its purest form, however, there are benefits from all the elements found within the broad spectrum extract and they work in conjunction to provide a more rounded result.
