What types of CBD are there?

Three types of CBD are Full Spectrum CBD Oil, Broad Spectrum CBD Oil and CBD Isolates.

Full spectrum refers to natural extracts containing all cannabinoids, vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids and terpenes, and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Since the full spectrum retains all the good or bad of cannabinoids, it provides a greater soothing effect than other types.
