Full Spectrum – Broad Spectrum & CBD Isolate
Every CBD product is extracted from the cannabis plant, it’s the process during and after extraction that are important and makes a difference.
Full spectrum means the extract contains all phytochemicals that are naturally found in the plant. This would include cannabinoids, essential oils, CBD and terpenes. The full spectrum extract also contains THC content with the amount depending on the process.
Full spectrum CBD may produce a false positive drug test, especially if you consume high doses of CBD oil daily due to the THC content.
The benefits of full spectrum are that it allows the user to benefit from what’s known as the entourage effect which means that all the cannabinoids work together to enhance the potential benefits, its also the least processed from of CBD.
Full spectrum may appear on drug screening and the THC content may cause problems with your country’s legislation.
Broad spectrum products contains all the cannabidiol and compounds that are found in full spectrum but has the THC elements removed, so you still feel the benefits but without the THC. As the broad spectrum also contains multiple cannabinoids, you can also benefit from the entourage effect and there’s no risk of psychoactive effects.
CBD isolate is the purest form and the highest concentration of CBD per serving. With isolate all the other compounds have been removed and only the CBD is left. CBD Isolate has its own benefits but the entourage effect is not one of them due to it being purely CBD based.
