What Is CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are chemical components found in marijuana and hemp. Some people think that marijuana and hemp are the same, but they are different based on the amount of THC they contain, as highlighted by Grotenhermen & Russo (2002).THC is the chemical component that gives marijuana the psychoactive properties so that when you use marijuana, you may feel "high". Marijuana has 50%-90% of THC, while hemp has less than 0.3% of THC. When you purchase a CBD product, you may wonder if the product is marijuana or hemp. The amount of THC in the CBD product will hint because if it has a high amount of THC, it is CBD extracted from marijuana; if it has less than 0.3%, it has been extracted from hemp. The amount of THC in cannabis determines whether it will be legal, as most countries have made products with high amounts of THC in them illegal. Therefore, CBD extracted from hemp is available in more countries than CBD extracted from marijuana.

Sometimes people think that CBD toners are the same, but they are not. Like other CBD products, CBD toners are also placed in categories known as spectrums. The spectrums are grouped according to the effectiveness of the CBD toner. Within the categories, it is worth noting that the more components the CBD toner has from the original plant, the more effective it is. The concept is based on the entourage effect, which means that the user benefits when several components work together than when one component works in isolation. Below are the spectrums that your CBD toner may belong;

 

Full-Spectrum CBD Toner

The full-spectrum CBD toner is the most effective because it contains almost every component of cannabis, including THC.

The broad-spectrum CBD toner

The broad-spectrum toner contains most of the components of cannabis except THC. It is, therefore, less effective than the CBD toner in the broad spectrum but more effective than the CBD toner in the CBD isolate spectrum.

The CBD Isolate Toner

As the name suggests, the CBD isolate toner will only have CBD devoid of all the other components and is, therefore, the least effective of all the CBD toners in the broad and the full spectrums.
