UNDERSTANDING CBD PRODUCTS
Understanding Water Soluble CBD and Bioavailability
The topic of water-soluble CBD is super important to understand, and it all comes down to bioavailability. Bioavailability is the amount of a drug compound taken that is actually absorbed into the body, and water-soluble CBD is a form of CBD that is made for increased bioavailability in the stomach. This video goes into a bit of detail about the science behind water-soluble CBD and why it's so important to consider when choosing the right CBD product to use.
Difference Between Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and Isolate CBD Extracts
The terms 'full spectrum', 'broad spectrum', and 'isolate' are often used in the Hemp CBD industry but many people remain confused as to what the difference actually is. It's pretty simple...
Full spectrum extracts contain the CBD + all other compounds naturally present. Broad spectrum extracts contain the CBD + some other compounds naturally present. Isolate extracts contain only CBD + no other compounds naturally present.
This video breaks all that down into more detail in a simple way to help you really understand what others are talking about.

Did the FDA just Crack Down on CBD?! Here’s what changed...
If you’ve been keeping up on the latest news about CBD, there’s no doubt that you’ve seen some pretty alarming headlines stating that the FDA has cracked down on CBD. This is just not true. They basically reiterated their existing position which is that brands CANNOT make health claims, and that they don’t have enough scientific evidence to come out with supportive regulations just yet. Technically, they say the CBD is not allowed to be used in foods, drinks, or supplements. That being said, the precedent has clearly been set that if you don’t make health claims you won’t be bothered by the FDA. This industry continues to grow and will not stop any time soon!
