How should I know which type of CBD to take?

Both versions of CBD – Full Spectrum or Isolate – are helpful extracts from the Hemp plant. They provide different benefits, and come with unique traits. As research intensifies, more potential benefits like the entourage effect (as outlined below), continue to be uncovered. It really is an opportunity for you to select the type of CBD that is best for your circumstance, and for your body.

Full Spectrum CBD

•The entourage effect is available here. Many cannabis users believe in the entourage effect, the idea that cannabinoids and other cannabis compounds have a greater effect combined than when consumed alone. while research continues, it’s been shown that THC and CBD working together provides more benefit, while other users and additional research suggest that the individual pieces work separately and have no additional benefit together.

•Full Spectrum CBD has trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%), the psychoactive property of hemp. Some users remain concerned that this THC could show in drug tests, and thus prefer the Isolate CBD.

•Full spectrum is the least amount of processing done to the oil.

•Motive offers full spectrum CBD in it’s line of full spectrum oil/tinctures and it’s mints.

Isolate CBD

• Contains NO THC – thus it won’t show on drug tests. It is considered the purest form of CBD, produced by removing all other compounds found in the plant including terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids.

• Professional athletes, and anyone who is drug tested, typically prefer this product.

•Isolate CBD is approved by the US and World Anti-Doping agencies to be cleared for any athletic competition.
