CBD Isolate vs Whole Plant CBD.
Should You Care?
Hemp is a high-growing plant, typically bred for industrial uses such as oils and topical ointments, as well as fiber for clothing, construction, and much more. However, there is a lot of confusion between the benefits of CBD isolate vs. Whole Plant Hemp CBD in dietary supplements.
To Make it Simple:
Whole Plant Hemp, describes a product which utilizes the full hemp plant, keeping intact the full synergistic properties of its rich terpenes, secondary cannabinoids and fatty acids to interact with and enhance the properties of CBD. The cannabinoid THC content in Hemplucid is below the legal .3% mandate.
Isolated Hemp, describes a product that utilizes only the stalk of the hemp plant. These products strip out any other cannabinoids, terpenes and fatty acids found in the Trichomes of the plant. The only remaining component is ‘crystals’ of CBD. This product looks like a white powder and does not contain any other naturally occurring parts of the plant from which it came. At the risk of overgeneralizing, these products seem to degrade the synergistic qualities nature originally provided.
Hemplucid is dedicated to providing our customers with the full benefit of the whole hemp plant.
Hemplucid has spent nearly a decade developing a premium genetic: a terpene-rich hemp extract that is high in CBD to assist in health and general well-being. This full plant extract creates the highest quality phyto-cannabinoid products on the market and it is only found in Hemplucid!
Due to strict FDA guidelines, Hemplucid cannot make health claims associated with our hemp products. This makes it somewhat difficult for our online consumers to become educated regarding the relationship between healing and Hemplucid CBD products. We encourage all people to search the internet and become self-educated on this magnificent plant.
Understanding CBD Isolate:
• CBD Isolate contains far fewer cannabinoids than found in the hand-picked, genetically superior whole plants of Hemplucid. A huge amount of hemp is required to extract a small amount of CBD isolate.
• Refined CBD isolate powder lacks critical terpenes, secondary cannabinoids, and fatty acids, decreasing the synergistic value of these cannabinoids.
• Isolated CBD is extracted from industrial hemp plants that are utilized across many hemp industries ranging from clothing, construction, lotions and potions. Each industry uses the same base plant to decrease manufacturing costs. Supplements using these plants sacrifice CBD quality for price.
