Full-Spectrum CBD vs CBD Isolate: Which one is right for me?

If you’re new to CBD, you may not know the difference between full-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate. CBD isolate is only the isolated CBD compound with no other elements of cannabis compounds or the original plant it came from.


How To Use CBD Tablets?

CBD tablets are an easy-to-take and effective way of absorbing cannabinoids into your body quickly. They can come in full-spectrum or CBD isolate form, and in a variety of different strengths, making it easy for you to dose appropriately for your needs.

Whether you’re taking a full-spectrum tablet or an isolate tablet, ingestion is the same. You can swallow CBD tablets like any other pill or tablet. Taking your tablet with water is the easiest and more popular way of taking CBD tablets. However, it is important to note that if you don’t already have food in the stomach you will want to take the product with a hand full of nuts or a bit of avocado since cannabis is fat-soluble.

Something you may have heard before is to start low and go slow. If you’re unsure how to dose appropriately for your needs, then it’s advised to start small with a low-dose tablet. Our tablets can easily be split in half if you desire a smaller dose to start. The tablet is uniform and you can expect the same dose each time. With THC, it can take around 15 – 30 minutes to begin feeling the effects, but this is not necessarily true of CBD. At Stratos, we recommend starting with a low dose and seeing how you feel in 5-7 days. If you experience no change, then increase the dose from there. CBD is not as quick acting as THC, and it’s important to keep that in mind when taking CBD. 

Before you take any CBD products you should consult a medical professional. For specific questions regarding dosing, we highly recommend reaching out to the experts at Realm of Caring

How Do I Dose CBD for Myself?

Choosing between the different types, strengths, and methods of consuming CBD can be overwhelming. Figuring out the appropriate dose for your body complicates this process even further. If you need help figuring out which type of CBD is the best for your needs, or how much you should be taking, Stratos CBD is here to help. 

What CBD should I be taking?

Are you struggling to figure out which type of CBD is the best for you? We strive for our website to make it as easy as possible for you. All of our product pages and packaging clearly distinguish between Full Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate products. Each product page also clearly lays out how long it should take before you start feeling the effects, and directs you to the Realm of Caring for dosage needs. 

The appropriate dosage and method of taking CBD are entirely dependent on what you hope to get out of taking CBD. It’s important to keep in mind that the different methods of consuming CBD all impact your body differently and at different rates. While some people experience immediate help from CBD, generally it takes some time for the body to equilibrate and begin utilizing the CBD. This is why we tell people to start a dose and try it for 5-7 days before increasing. Once you have become acquainted with CBD, you will begin to experience the effects of our tinctures and tablets within half an hour of taking them. For other CBD products, it can take upwards of two hours to begin. 

How much should I take?

If you’re unsure how to dose appropriately for your needs, then it’s highly recommended to start small with a lower dose of a tablet. Our tablets can easily be split in half if you desire a smaller dose to start. The tablet is uniform and you can expect the same dose each time. This ensures that you don’t feel the effect adversely or take more than is appropriate. For more detailed information on appropriate dosing, you can visit the Realm of Caring website or call 719-347-5400.
