You may have heard of all of the different kinds of gummy candies available out there in the world today. Gummy worms, gummy bears, gummy cartoon characters, and so on. Well, developers have decided to take the gummy candy experience one step further and add a little bit of CBD into the mix.

Full-spectrum CBD gummies are made from the full spectrum extract of the hemp plant. What makes it “full-spectrum” is the hemp extract that is infused with the gummy contains the full spectrum of the hemp plant.
The hemp plant is a unique kind of plant that possesses a myriad of compounds such as cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes. Plants that are from the cannabis genus, including hemp, have a collection of cannabinoids that set them apart from most of the other plants that exist on the planet Earth. Two of the most famous cannabinoids that we all are aware of today are CBD and THC.
The full-spectrum extract of a hemp plant includes all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that the hemp plant has to offer, including a small amount of THC. Most people prefer the full-spectrum extract because a phenomenon known as the entourage effect uses all of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes together as one to deliver a more robust effect than just one compound alone. Scientists argue over the validity of this claim, but there is no definitive explanation to prove one way or the other.
When the hemp extraction process consists of removing the essence of the hemp plant and capturing it into a vessel without including THC it is known as a broad-spectrum hemp extract. The broad spectrum of the hemp plant contains most of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes that the full-spectrum extract contains, however, there is not even a trace of THC. This way it is still possible to achieve the entourage effect, but not a chance of being exposed to THC.
CBD isolate extracts are becoming less popular, but are still around. An isolate extract is when all of the components are excluded from the extract and all that is left is an isolated compound of the CBD cannabinoid. In an Isolate product, there is nothing but pure CBD and nothing else except for whatever solution it is encapsulated in.
Whatever type of hemp extract that you prefer is completely personal. Different people want different things from their CBD. Regardless of your favorite form of CBD, make sure that you get your CBD products from a trusted source that is passionate about quality and goodness within every seed that they plant.
