Types of CBD
A Full Spectrum CBD product means the product contains all compounds naturally found in the plant including compounds like CBD, CBG (Cannabigerol), CBN (Cannabinol), CBC (Cannabichromene), and THC. Full Spectrum CBD may have a stronger natural flavor and odor. Quality Full Spectrum CBD products are typically high in CBD with trace amounts of minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, as well as an extremely low concentration of THC (less than 0.30%). This extremely low concentration of THC may still appear as a positive result on a drug test. In such extremely low concentrations, consumers using Full Spectrum CBD products should not feel the psychoactive effects of THC as the THC is only present to help increase the potential “Entourage Effect.”
Broad Spectrum CBD products are identical to Full Spectrum except the product has been processed and refined to remove THC. Broad Spectrum CBD products should contain all cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids naturally found in the plant including compounds like CBD, CBG, CBN and CBC, except THC. Based on lab results, Broad Spectrum CBD products should not have detectable levels of THC. The removal of THC makes Broad Spectrum an excellent alternative to Full Spectrum for consumers who may benefit from CBD but must take drug tests or cannot use Full Spectrum for other reasons.
Isolate CBD products have been processed and refined to remove all compounds naturally found in the plant except CBD. Based on lab results, Isolate CBD products should contain over 99% pure CBD and should not have detectable levels of THC.
Does health insurance cover medical marijuana products if recommended by a doctor?
Even though a majority of states including Louisiana have legalized the use of marijuana in medical treatments, patients will have to pay for medical marijuana products out of pocket at a licensed pharmacy due to the Schedule 1 controlled substance classification of marijuana.
Can a Health Savings or Flexible Spend Account fund the purchase of medical marijuana products?
Medical marijuana has been found to provide relief against a variety of medical conditions such as nausea, chronic pain, and muscle stiffness. However, marijuana is a Schedule 1 controlled substance, so the cost of medical marijuana products are ineligible for reimbursement under a Health Savings or Flexible Spend Account.
Does Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan cover the cost of medical marijuana products?
Medication must have FDA approval for coverage under Medicare or Medicare Advantage plans. Since marijuana is a Schedule 1 controlled substance, patients will have to pay out of pocket for the products.
