This is one of the most common questions we hear at when using a PCR Hemp Oil, the full Phyto-cannabinoid profile combines as an “entourage” to effectively work together and provide you with a more beneficial experience. PCR Hemp Oil is not considered an “isolate,” in comparison to products which use the Phyto cannabinoid CBD only.
Isolate and certain distillate products do not offer the “entourage effect.”

What is PCR Hemp Oil?
To explain, we first need to start with — What does “PCR” stand for in the term PCR Hemp Oil? This is a very common question that we get asked regularly. It stands for Phyto-Cannabinoid Rich Hemp Oil, which is a specific type of PCR Hemp Oil is a full spectrum botanical extract taken from the hemp plant. The hemp plant contains different compounds, called Phyto cannabinoids, which are active chemicals found only in this plant. The most common Phyto cannabinoids include Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabichromene (CBC), and Tetrahydra cannabidoil (THC). The most “famous” and well researched are THC and CBD.
PCR Hemp Wholesalel has all the Phyto cannabinoids found naturally in the Hemp plant except THC. The dominant Phyto cannabinoid in PCR Hemp Oil is CBD, but also contains the other Phyto cannabinoids such as CBN, CBG, and CBC as well as natural terpenes which are needed to help keep your body in balance.
THC is the only compound that has psychoactive effects. This is why to be classified as an industrial hemp product in the USA the product must contain less than 0.3% THC. All PCR Hemp Wholesale products that contain PCR Hemp Oil have non-detectable levels of THC in HPLC testing (High Performance Liquid Chromatography testing).
What is CBD Isolate?
CBD isolate is also extracted from the hemp plant. It is Cannabidiol in its purest form possible, which contains only the Phyto cannabinoid Cannabidiol chemical compound. Its the only compound found in Isolate, or isolated CBD products. Its got 1/3rd of the bio effectiveness of of PCR Hemp Oils and Liquids.
PCR Hemp Oil and CBD Isolate both come from the same plant, so what’s the difference?
In CBD isolate products, CBD is the only Phyto cannabinoid present in the product. Meanwhile, in PCR Hemp Oil, you get the “broad spectrum” of the Phyto cannabinoids (excluding THC). This is key. Research has found that in PCR Hemp Oil, the Phyto cannabinoids act together synergistically to bring you the maximum benefit. This is called the “entourage effect.” CBD is actually the dominant Phyto cannabinoid in full and broad spectrum hemp oil. CBD Isolate products with CBD as the only Phyto cannabinoid does not benefit from the “entourage effect.” This also goes for much of the distillate products produced as well today.
What is Distillate CBD?
Distillate CBD is hemp oil processed through distillation. This is the newest form of CBD manufacturing on the markets although it's showing to not be the most effective. Distillation processes, much like those that produce alcohols at distilleries, use high heat and pressure. When applied to Cannabidiol, distillation created multiple chemical reactions that alter the overall compounds. These reactions aren't studied enough to actually understand the effects, but we do know that they have changed the compounds enough to alter effectiveness. While they are still full and broad spectrum, they may not hold all the properties that PCR Hemp Oils do.
