CBD vape juice is typically made from two types of extract – either CBD-isolate or full-spectrum CBD. The extraction process for isolates separates the CBD from everything else, as to provide a pure CBD experience. Meanwhile, full-spectrum is created with a whole-plant hemp extract, that comprises of other cannabinoids and terpenes to deliver all-encompassing benefits of hemp. There are advantages to using isolates and full-spectrum products, which we will explore further in this piece.
Marcus, my husband is a 100% disabled vet with PTSD. He has tried a myriad of drugs through the VA all with questionable side affects. He would love to drop the drugs all together but that would cause many other problems. Can the CBD oil be used with meds he is on? Does he need to get permission from the psychiatrist at the VA and is there anything else I might need to consider before suggesting this to him? Thanks in advance!
CBD is a plant constituent found in hemp and cannabis – the former is now legal, but the latter is not. That’s why all CBD products must be made from hemp strains, and not cannabis. This is because standard cannabis contains high concentrations of THC, a psychoactive component of the herb. In contrast, hemp produces very little THC, but larger amounts of CBD.

Also, some people prefer not to consume their cannabis in whole leaf form, simply because they either don’t like the taste or may have respiratory issues that prevent them from inhaling vapor or smoke, etc.
CBD also has really positive effects on the gut, which can be best realized with edibles. An emerging new theory suggests that keeping the gut walls healthy and tight reduces full-body inflammation and autoimmune conditions. A ‘leaky gut’ exposes the body to all the bacteria that should be kept in the gut. CBD could play a key role in tightening and restoring the gut lining.
