If you’re new to the world of CBD oil or just simply looking for the best selection available today, you’ve come to the right place. For those who have never explored the world of CBD oil before, the confusing, often contradictory, terminology, and general lack of knowledge may seem completely impenetrable to you. This is why we at Progressive Botanicals have put together a comprehensive guide to the best full spectrum CBD oils available today. We’ve covered the science behind CBD, including exactly how CBD promotes both your mental and physical health and how CBD is beneficial both to your mental and physical health.
In order to understand exactly how varying amounts of CBD affect your body, it’s important to talk about dosage and potency. Basically, there are two different methods of producing CBD. First, large-scale production methods utilize heat to convert the cannabis plants into highly potent, low THC regulated oil. Second, smaller-scale operations utilize steam distillation to create highly potent, high THC regulated oil, but with significantly lower potency than traditional mass-produced oils.
So which is better? In general, the higher the potency of the CBD oil, the more pure the end product will be. However, this isn’t always true. Some companies are only able to achieve a certain potency by using expensive, time-consuming and high-risk methods of CBD extraction. Others achieve their highest quality and potency levels by using either heat or steam compression, neither of which are extremely time-efficient or practical.
Another key difference between CBD oils produced using heat or steam compression are the types of flavors they can contain. In addition to being able to add numerous flavors through simple means such as adding scented oils or water, manufacturers also have the option to add additional flavors through various methods. For example, you can choose from a variety of CBD-infused extracts including fruity flavors, flowery flavors and almost any other flavor you can imagine. The higher the potency of the CBD oil, the greater the possibilities for added flavors. Unfortunately, most companies don’t go that route because CBD oils don’t have the same shelf-life as other oils and CBD is a substance that has to be kept cold at all times.
A final distinction between full-spectrum and oils and other commercially produced CBD is the way they are stored. With most other types of CBD oil, consumers choose to keep their purchase within their refrigerator. With third-party lab-made CBD products, consumers choose to store their purchases in the refrigerator in an attempt to maintain the stability of the plant’s CBD levels.
As was previously discussed, when evaluating CBD products you must consider not just the specific brand name, but the type of manufacturing process used to create the product as well. While many companies may use low temperature heating or cold-press methods in order to create their third-party lab-made CBD products, others prefer to work with what nature intended us to have, which is full spectrum CBD oil. Low or medium CBD temperatures will neither kill nor flavour the oils, which makes them an excellent choice for dabbing or massage therapy. It is also important to note that the highest quality third-party CBD products will come from the lab of a globally-recognized naturals-based independent pharmaceutical company like Nuleaf Naturals. As a result, it is likely that your preferred full spectrum blend will contain only the highest-quality ingredients, as well as an excellent balance of monounsaturated fats, omega-3 fatty acids and amino acids.
