There are multiple different ways that people can give their large horse friends cbd. With all the different type of marketing and words thrown around it is hard to know exactly what each one is and what each one will do. Just like colas, they come in different colors, different packages, and different brand names. And just like Cola it doesn’t always explain what is the difference between the brands. Like Coke, Pepsi, and RC Cola the names don’t really tell us anything. Isolate, blends, full spectrum it can all sound like another language so we will help break down the different types for you. Each type is different with its own benefits and drawbacks. At the end of the day it is really just about finding what is right for you and your horse.
Introduction to the different types of CBD oils for your horse.
With all the buzz that is going on with CBD it is easy to be overwhelmed. Other than the common/generic CBD oil, you can find lots of other variations of CBD in the market. CBD edibles, CBD cream, CBD sprays, the list just keeps growing everyday.
But when it comes to the CBD itself, are all of them created the same way? Are there different types of CBD out there? If there are, does it mean there’s a version that is better than the other? Which types of CBD should you choose? This brief article will answer all of those questions for you.
Are there different types of CBD?
Yes, there are different types of CBD that you can freely choose based on your particular needs or what you are trying to achieve with the CBD. And all of them are freely available in different forms in the market. The following are the different types of CBD:
1. Full spectrum CBD. As the name implies, Full Spectrum CBD contains every type of cannabinoid that is present inside a hemp. That means not only CBD, but THC and other types of cannabinoids as well. Although it might not have a huge amount of THC it should still be noted. One of the biggest benefits of full spectrum, as the name implies, is that it has all the benefits of CBD. This is because it has a wider range of benefits generally as it has all the cbd aspects in it.
2. Broad spectrum CBD. Broad spectrum CBD is not as complete as the full spectrum one. It still contains the CBD and other types of cannabinoids from the hemp. What it doesn’t have, however, is the psychoactive component of THC. This might be good if you want to avoid THC completely. But, as mentioned above, especially when it comes to pet products, in full spectrum the thc is at such a low amount that it shouldn’t be noticeable for your pets.
3. Isolate CBD. isolate CBD is the purest CBD out of the three. Unlike all of the previous ones, this type of CBD contains only pure CBD. You won’t find any trace of THC or any other types of cannabinoids inside an isolate CBD. However, you will also miss out on some of the benefits of the other chemicals in it. Think of it like protein powder, versus a chicken breast. While they might have the same amount of protein the chicken breast will include other benefits.
Which type of CBD should you choose?
As you can probably surmise, the main difference between one type of CBD and the other is the presence of other types of cannabinoids within it. One is not necessarily better than the other. As mentioned before, it depends on what is suitable for you and what you are trying to achieve with the CBD.
Since it is the closest one that you could get to an actual hemp plant, full spectrum CBD will give you the strongest effect out of the other types of CBD. And while it does have THC in it, the amount is limited to only 0.3% at most. You should use this one if you’re experiencing intense pain. It could help to significantly reduce the pain.
But if you’re worried about the THC and you simply want to use the CBD to help with your daily life, such as to help with anxiety or joint problems, then broad spectrum CBD could be the best option for you. This type of CBD is the perfect middle ground because it has every type of CBD inside without any of the THC.
And last but not least is the isolate CBD. This type of CBD is perfect if your body is sensitive to any cannabinoids beside CBD. And since this one only contains CBD, the effect would not be as strong as the others. That’s why isolate CBD is only recommended to people who absolutely couldn’t tolerate THC and other cannabinoids.
So when we look at which products have worked best for our pets, we have found that the full and broad spectrum have worked best. This might not be the case for everyone’s pets, because each one of our furry family members are different. This is why we have really taken a shine to Furbabies and their products. Because of their full range of beneficial, and all natural, ingredients we have found that they are a great starting point for trying to fix issues with medicated oils.
Other than the different products that are based on CBD, there are also different types of CBD that you should know. One type is not necessarily better than the other. It all depends on your pets body/issue, their preferences, and what you need to do with it. Be sure to talk to your vet when you start your medicated oil journey.
