Types of CBD Products
CBD products come in lots of different types, each of which is used differently and for different reasons.
CBD Oil / Tincture
Usually comes in a dropper bottle and can either be made from a full- or broad-spectrum CBD extract or from a CBD isolate or nano-amplified CBD which is mixed in with a carrier oil such as hemp seed oil or MCT oil.

Full-spectrum CBD Oil
CBD refers to products that contain all the cannabinoids (including small amounts of THC), terpenes and flavonoids that occur naturally in the plant.
Broad-spectrum CBD Oil
This os very similar to full-spectrum because it contains all the whole-plant compounds, but without the THC . This makes it an excellent choice for people who still want all the benefits of full-spectrum, but without the risk of testing positive for THC.
Isolate CBD Oil
As the name suggests, isolate contains only CBD. During the extraction process all other cannabinoids, terpenes and plant compounds are removed to leave behind a white powder or crystals that is 99+% pure CBD. This is a good choice for people who are sensitive to other cannabinoids, or need precision dosages of CBD.
What is the Endocannabinoid System ?
The Endocannabinoid System, also called, ECS and its components are responsible for keeping the body in a state of balance (or homeostasis) by modulating and regulating almost every biological and physiological system in the body. And when the body is in this state of homeostasis, your body has everything available to it, to perform at its best, allowing you to stay healthy and vital. Read more how ECS interacts with CBD.
