CBD Oil UK: Benefits, Cannabinoids, Dosage
What is CBD oil?
There are 2 different CBD oils. The oil that contains just CBD and the total or full-spectrum oil that contains all the cannabinoids.
CBD oil which contains only CBD is made with isolation. The isolate or crystal is an extraction of over 99% pure CBD that is found in the form of crystals.
Total / full-spectrum oil or full spectrum oil contains CBD but also other cannabinoids (CBG, CBN, CBC ...), terpenes (Limonene, Linalool ...), vitamins (A, C, E and B) as well as omega 3 and 6.
A study that compared the effects of CBD isolate versus the full spectrum released in 2015 proved that the full spectrum had greater anti-inflammatory power.
