There are three types of CBD found in CBD-infused drinks – which variant you prefer will depend on the experience you’re hoping to have.
Full-spectrum CBD contains most of the natural compounds found in hemp, including cannabigerol (CBG), cannabichromene (CBC), terpenes and trace amounts of THC. While these products don’t provide a powerful or, for some people, even a noticeable psychoactive effect, full-spectrum products do provide the “entourage effect” for users. The entourage effect can produce more potent therapeutic results, suggesting that full-spectrum CBD combines a wide range of cannabinoids synergistically, potentially enhancing the benefits more than when CBD is taken alone.
However, the presence of THC carries the risk of testing positive on a drug test. Although the psychoactive effect of full-spectrum products is close to nothing, it may still be more than some users want.
Although broad-spectrum CBD products also contain a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes like full-spectrum CBD, they remove all significant traces of THC during refinement. As a result, those who want to experience the entourage effect without risking THC exposure may prefer a broad-spectrum CBD product. However, they can still be susceptible to the other compounds’ effects.
CBD isolate, on the other hand, is the purest form of CBD. All other cannabinoids are removed during the extraction process to make the product entirely THC-free. As a result, many who want to avoid any trace of the psychoactive agent feel CBD isolate is their safest option.
At Zentopia, all of our products are made with CBD isolate, ensuring that all other components in hemp – especially those related to THC – are non-detectable in our products.
CBD isolate is virtually flavorless and odorless, which makes it the perfect mixer for CBD-infused drinks. While full and broad-spectrum CBD products can have a more distinct flavor, CBD isolate products preserve the drink’s original flavor profile, allowing even those who don’t enjoy the taste of hemp to revel in its effects.
Can I Trust a “THC-Free” Product?
If you’re looking for a product without any traces of THC, it’s essential that you secure it from a trusted source that performs rigorous, independent lab testing on all their products. Even if a product is advertised as “THC-free,” it can sometimes still contain part of the psychoactive agent in its chemical makeup. One study examining 80 unregulated CBD products (21 of which were even advertised as “THC-free”) found that 52 contained detectable traces of THC despite their packaging’s promise.
At Zentopia, we’re stringent about our non-detectable label and work hard to ensure our products’ THC percentage is nonexistent. We work closely with our licensed CBD supplier to coordinate every order placed and provide comprehensive documentation for each batch, including a Certificate of Analysis (COA). Our CBD supplier conducts thorough testing to detect compound levels as low as 0.01 percent. Our team always verifies that our supplier and an independent lab have confirmed all cannabinoids related to THC variants are non-detectable before we start producing the beverage itself.
We also take an extra step to ensure our products’ safety by getting approval from a nationally accredited and independent laboratory. Our customers can buy confidently knowing that our products adhere to our strict standards.
