Different Types of CBD Oil
You may be familiar with cannabidiol, or CBD oil and it’s potential anti-inflammatory and stress-reducing properties, but did you know there are a variety of CBD oils available?
If you are looking for the best CBD oil for your own personal health or for recreational use, take a look at the CBD oil types available:
Much like any other extract of a substance, CBD concentrate is a highly potent extract of CBD. Often, CBD concentrate is available in wax, liquid extract, or crystals, and each of these products consists of anywhere between 45% to 99.99% CBD oil.
This will give you strong effects of CBD that will last for a shorter amount of time. You can use this type of CBD oil to alleviate strong symptoms of an illness or injury, or if you’re looking to experience strong effects of the substance for a short period of time. However, even though this type of CBD is very potent, it will not lead to the same psychoactive properties seen when smoking marijuana with THC.
Raw CBD Oil
Raw CBD is made without the use of chemicals or heat treatment, instead relying on a CO2 extraction process. This maintains the marijuana plant’s full range of cannabidiol, and also maintains the other ingredients found in the natural plant. This can include terpenes, which are aromatic compounds found in plants, pigments, and more.
Raw CBD oil can be enjoyed if you want to consume CBD over a long period of time, but don’t want to have very strong effects.
PCR CBD Oil
PCR stands for phytocannabinoid rich, which refers to the types of cannabinoids produced by plants. This type of oil contains a large range of cannabinoids, sometimes beyond just CBD. The main types of PCR CBD oils include CBD isolate, broad spectrum CBD and full spectrum CBD.
CBD isolate is pure CBD, and does not contain any other types of cannabinoids, terpenes or other ingredients. Broad spectrum CBD includes all the plant’s terpenes, fatty acids, pigments and more, but excludes THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the ingredient responsible for the psychoactive properties of marijuana. Full spectrum CBD includes all the plant’s ingredients, as well as THC.
PCR CBD oil can be enjoyed by anyone looking to reap the benefits of CBD. CBD isolate will lead to the weakest effects, as it does not contain the additional properties often found in the plant. Broad spectrum CBD will allow the user to reap some of the benefits offered by the additional ingredients, like terpenes, that are seen to have anti-inflammatory properties. While full spectrum CBD does contain some level of THC, it will not actively lead to you feeling high, but will add to the overall calming effect CBD oil tends to have.
What’s the Best CBD Oil for You?
The best CBD oil for you is largely dependent on how long you want to experience the effects of the oil, and how strong you want the effects to be. Each of these types of CBD oils offer unique experiences that will help you feel more relaxed. Experiment with a few to determine which is the best CBD oil form for you!
