CBD Term Glossary
When it comes to the CBD industry, there are plenty of terms that you might not be familiar with as a first-time shopper. Below, we have listed a few of the terms that you will likely encounter as you browse our online CBD marketplace.
Activated: Activated CBD references a product that has undergone decarboxylation (rapid heating) to change the CBD from its natural acid form to an “activated” non-acid form.
Broad Spectrum: Broad-spectrum, much like full-spectrum CBD products, contain a wide range of terpenes, cannabinoids, and other compounds. What makes it different, however, is that broad-spectrum CBD does not contain THC.
Cannabidiol: Cannabidiol is CBD! There are over 100 different cannabinoids that are found in cannabis plants. CBD is just one of those compounds.
CBD Extract: A CBD extract is a thick, oily substance that is extracted from hemp. In extract form, the rawest form of CBD, there are various cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant materials present.
CBD Isolate: CBD isolate is a refined crystalline powder in which all compounds of the flower or plant have been extracted except the CBD molecule. In short, it is pure CBD.
CBD Oil: CBD oil is a common term that you will run into when shopping for CBD. CBD oil is a CBD extract that has been suspended in neutral oil.
CBD Concentrate: CBD concentrate is the ultra-refined form of CBD. The most common CBD concentrate products are wax, shatter, and some extracts.
Entourage Effect: This common effect refers to the added benefits and feels provided by full-spectrum CBD products that contain terpenes.
Full Spectrum: Full Spectrum refers to the spectrum of cannabinoids that can be found in the CBD product. Full Spectrum products have a wide range of cannabinoids, terpenes, and various other compounds like THC.
Hemp Oil: Hemp oil can be a few different things. That said, hemp oil always indicates that the product was made using strictly hemp plants — not any of the other plants in the cannabis family. These products can include hemp oil, hemp seed oil, and more.
Terpene: Terpenes are common organic compounds that are produced in plants. Often, terpenes are associated with a particularly strong odor. When a CBD product has terpenes in it, it can produce added effects like the entourage effect.
