What is the difference between Full Spectrum, Isolate and Nano CBD?

An isolate product contains pure CBD isolated from all other chemical compounds in the original plant material. This means that the CBD solely exists by itself and can be visualized as a white-colored powder.

Full spectrum CBD, unlike CBD isolate products, includes the full range of cannabinoids present in the hemp plant. Full spectrum CBD can provide a greater effect than CBD alone because all the cannabinoids work together in the entourage effect.

There are over 100 compounds in the cannabis plant. While most of these compounds have their own therapeutic benefit, they combine synergistically to provide a far better performance than any single compound, including CBD.
Our full spectrum CBD oil includes a trace amount of THC (less than 0.3%). To be compliant with US regulations, full spectrum CBD must include less than 0.3% THC. This small amount of THC has no psychoactive effect but drastically aids in the efficacy of the CBD due to the entourage effect.

Nano CBD is the most effective CBD solution that presently exists. In the formulation process, isolate CBD-which has a bioavailability of approximately 10%- is converted into a nano particle solution. The CBD isolate, in powder form, is put into solution with water, as the polarity of it's molecular structure is reversed. This makes the isolate molecule more polar, as it previously was non-polar, which allows it to dissolve into water. Water is a polar molecule, and polar substances only dissolve other substances that are similarly polar. The cells of the body are much more absorptive to polar substances because the heads of cell wall bilayers are water-receptive. To accompany this, the molecules of isolate are shrunken down 37x to better fit through cell walls. Cells typically absorb substances most effectively from 50-100 nanometers in size, and the basic size of the unaltered CBD molecule is around 2000 nanometers. This process shrinks the isolate molecule, now water soluble, down to around 50 nanometers in size. Overall, the bioavailability of each CBD molecule increases to 90-100% all together. This is what makes nano CBD solution so much more effective than full spectrum or lone isolate ones.
