Hemp, Distillate, Isolate and Whole plant Cannabis. What are the differences?

Medical Marijuana in Santa Monica, CAWhen faced with the decision of which cannabis product is appropriate for your needs, the choices can be confusing and difficult to navigate. What is the difference between hemp, distillate, isolate, and whole plant cannabis?

Let’s break it down.

Industrial hemp is single molecule CBD with less than 0.3% THC.

Isolate is single molecule THC or CBD in different ratios.

Distillate is mostly THC and CBD with very few minor cannabinoids and really no terpenes. Sometimes they add a few of the terpenes back in to distillate.

The holy grail of cannabis is whole plant cannabis. With 144 cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids it packs an amazing punch. With whole plant cannabis we are able to treat a wide range of diseases including anxiety, cancer, chronic pain, autism, and also the lesser known myasthenia gravis.
