CBD vs. THC
The best way to learn about CBD is to first start by understanding tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. This marijuana derivative has many desired effects, as well as some not so desirable effects depending on who you’re talking to.
Basically, THC has the capability to cause euphoric, therapeutic, and inebriating effects on the mind and body. This is why THC can be used medically to help heal and recreationally to get stoned.
And that is where CBD differentiates itself.
CBD, on the other hand, is able to work its magic on the mind and body without the aspects of intoxication from THC. In other words, CBD won’t get you high. It is an amazing nutrient with an abundance of health benefits for both the mind and body.
THE GOOD STUFF
CBD elevates your body towards reaching homeostasis, or, an internal equilibrium of both physical and chemical elements in a living system.
While there are tons of amazing benefits in the realm of CBD, we encourage you to do some of your own research in order to truly understand why it might benefit your personal needs!
When it comes to hemp-derived CBD, extraction processes are the key to keeping THC out of the mix. There are three main categories you might come across when it comes to CBD products: Isolate, Broad Spectrum, and Full Spectrum.
Coffee But Different utilizes the Isolate form of hemp extract. So, what does that mean?
Isolate is the purest form of any single specific molecule in hemp and cannabis – typically 99% or greater purity of a single compound. Isolates also minimize the possibility for any trace amounts of other compounds or materials in the plant that may have unintended effects on the taste or experience. A major advantage of working with isolates is due to the purity, it is very easy to guarantee highly specific repeatability and consistency.
EMULSION FOR WATER SOLUBILITY
How are we able to guarantee solubility in our coffee when CBD’s natural extract form is oil? Through emulsion technology!
Basically, oil and water don’t naturally blend so we must utilize an extra process in order for our coffee and CBD to sit uniformly within each can. An emulsion is when two or more liquids that don’t naturally blend together are dispersed into a homogenous mixture. Our strong emulsion technology allows the hemp extract to be more bio-available, which in turn provides a rapid commencement within the body.
