Some CBD is called “Full Spectrum” and some is “Broad Spectrum” and some is “Isolate.” So what’s the difference?
In the legal US cannabis market, there are all sorts of cannabinoids and they can be found in many forms. One of the most popular ways to consume cannabis is by smoking hemp pre-rolls. In the world of CBD (cannabidiol) products the best are often thought to be full spectrum. But what does this mean and why does it matter? In this article, you will learn about the full flower, the full spectrum, and what’s best for you.
Yes. Our pre-rolls are full-spectrum because they are full flower and not CBD isolate.
One of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant is CBD. It is the plant's most prevalent component besides Delta-9 THC. “Full spectrum” refers to a CBD product that contains a variety of terpenes and other naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Full spectrum is also noted for the entourage effect.
In other words: even though it’s an extract of the cannabis plant, full spectrum CBD contains all of the good stuff.
Full spectrum and broad spectrum are two of the three main types of CBD extract.
This contains most – but not all – of the cannabis plant compounds found in full spectrum. Broad-spectrum CBD products occasionally contain small amounts of THC.
CBD isolate is an extract that only contains CBD. There are no other cannabinoids or terpenes present.
Due to the fact that full-spectrum CBD products contain all the chemical constituents of the cannabis plant as well as up to 0.3% THC, some CBD experts believe they are more beneficial than other types. Due to this interaction, the "entourage effect" is created, which suggests that full-spectrum CBD may function more effectively as a whole than when any one cannabinoid is consumed alone.
Full flower is exactly what it sounds like: the entire bud is in there. It’s not an extract nor is it just one part of the flower.
A pre-roll is a pre-rolled joint or cigarette. In general, pre-rolls are better than what most smokers can make on their own, even if they have a rolling machine and good papers. Pre-rolled joints are easy and convenient for people who smoke marijuana or who smoke any form of hemp. They are super convenient because all you need to do is take one out of the tube of package and light it up.
CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid naturally found in cannabis. Of the more than 100 cannabinoids known to exist in cannabis, CBD is by far one of the most researched substances. It's one of at least 85 active substances found in cannabis plants, and it's increasingly gaining popularity with people looking for alternative methods of daily wellness and to make life feel a little smoother.
Similar to THC, CBD is absorbed by the body through the endocannabinoid system, a group of cannabinoid-friendly receptors that regulates immune function, sleep patterns, and reproductive health. However, unlike THC, CBD does not bind to the main CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body; instead, it functions to control how these receptors and cannabinoids interact.
Delta-8 THC (Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol) is another cannabinoid found in cannabis. It is becoming more and more popular because it is similar to the most well-known cannabinoid in cannabis: Delta-9 THC. Delta-9 THC is what has made marijuana so popular. It’s known for causing euphoria, happiness, the munchies, relief, laughing at dumb stuff, and more.
No. They are two different cannabinoids. While they share some similarities, the primary difference is that Delta-8 is psychoactive.
CBD is a cannabinoid that doesn't get you high and has mildly relaxing effects, while delta 8 is basically the same thing as “regular” THC. Delta 8 will definitely get you high, but CBD will not get you high, even if you smoke it. From a legal point of view, CBD and delta 8 are both considered industrial hemp covered under the 2018 Farm Bill. However, some states and local areas have taken steps to limit the sale of delta 8 for different reasons.
A pre-roll is a pre-rolled joint or cigarette. In general, pre-rolls are better than what most smokers can make on their own, even if they have a rolling machine and good papers. Pre-rolled joints are easy and convenient for people who smoke marijuana or who smoke any form of hemp. They are super convenient because all you need to do is take one out of the tube of the package and light it up.
A CBD pre-roll is a joint that has already been rolled and has CBD-rich hemp in it. Our CBD pre-rolls are rolled in hemp paper. They are safest and best when they are made with organic hemp flower and come with lab reports to prove its purity and potency.
A delta 8 pre-roll is a hemp joint that has already been rolled and has a lot of delta 8 THC in it. Most of the time, the D8 in delta 8 pre-rolls is made from another cannabinoid and then sprayed on hemp with CBD or CBG.
The primary difference is intoxication: Delta-8 pre-rolls are psychoactive and CBD pre-rolls are not. Where they are similar is that our KD8 Delta-8 pre-rolls contain high levels of CBD.
Our pre-rolled joints have either 0.5g or 1g of cannabis that has been ground up. If it's more than that, it's usually called a blunt and usually uses thicker paper to keep it all together. Pre-rolls that are closer to the 0.5g end of the size range are often easier to use because a person can easily smoke the whole thing in one session. Lab reports are available to see exact quantities.
