Understanding CBD Terms
Full Spectrum Winterized Crude is the first stop in the extraction process. This oil has everything from the plant in it, which is CBD, ∆9 THC, and all (over 100) cannabinoids as well as terpenes (they give smell and flavors and some have their own health benefits), waxes, lipids, and chlorophyll. While this oil does have THC, it is sold at >0.3% and will never give you the high feeling. If ingested it can cause you to fail a drug test, but there has been no evidence that if applied topically that will happen.
Full Spectrum Distillate is the second stop in the extraction process. This oil has removed terpenes, waxes, lipids, and chlorophyll while keeping CBD, ∆9 THC, and all (over 100) cannabinoids and this gives a nice golden honey like color to it. This oil also has the THC, and it is sold at >0.3%. Again, this will not get you high does have its added benefits. Also if ingested it can cause you to fail a drug test, but there has been no evidence that if applied topically that will happen.
Broad Spectrum Distillate is the third stop in the extraction process. This oil has removed terpenes, waxes, lipids, and chlorophyll, but has also removed the ∆9 THC while keeping CBD, and many of the other cannabinoids. While this oil tries to remediate all of the THC until there is no detectable levels, it still leaves a small possibility of being detected in a drug test if ingested. However, there has been no evidence that will happen if applied topically.
CBD Isolate is the final stop in the extraction process. This oil has been purified down to only CBD and has removed all terpenes, waxes, lipids, chlorophyll, and all other cannabinoids. This becomes a white crystal powder that can only be combined with an oil to get into solution. This powder contains no THC and CBD Isolate is the only product that truly does not. There has not been any evidence that anyone using this product will fail a drug test. This is the best product to use if ever you have a position that calls for drug test screening.
