Chase Terwilliger at Balanced Health Botanicals said there's confusion about the difference between isolates (pure CBD); broad spectrum hemp extracts (which contain some other components in addition to CBD such as other cannabinoids, but in the case of CBD Distillery, don't contain any THC); and full spectrum hemp extracts (which contain all parts of the plant).
Some consumers also remain confused about the difference between hemp-derived CBD, and marijuana (which has >0.3% THC), he said. "At the most basic level, the message is: CBD won't get you high."
