Full-Spectrum vs Broad-Spectrum

Full-Spectrum vs Broad-Spectrum

CBD full-spectrum CBD VS broad-spectrum: what's the difference?

When looking for CBD, you’ve probably noticed there are different cannabinoid spectrum options to choose from.

Two of the most popular CBDs spectrums are full-spectrum CBD and broad-spectrum CBD

While there is another spectrum called CBD isolate, we want to focus on the most popular ones. We’ll list the pros and cons of each so you can find a CBD spectrum that works for you!

The Cannabinoid Spectrum

To create a CBD product, the cannabinoid content is extracted from the leaves, flowers, and stalks of the cannabis plant 

Once extracted, it can be refined to contain only specific cannabinoids. The contents of the final extract are what determines if the CBD is full spectrum or broad spectrum.

What is Full Spectrum CBD?

As you may have guessed from the name, full spectrum CBD is the extract that contains all compounds found in the plant. From terpenes (organic compounds found in many plants) to essential oils, and other cannabinoids.

All those lovely little ingredients work together to magnify the benefits of each other to cause the “entourage effect“. 

What is Broad Spectrum CBD?

Broad spectrum is similar to full spectrum in the sense it’s the other compound found within the plant and preserved in the extract; however, broad spectrum has the THC completely removed.

Because Broad Spectrum CBD contains multiple cannabinoids, it can deliver the enhanced benefits of the “entourage effect” but without any THC. 

Which one is better?

The short answer is, neither is better than the other.

They both have their benefits. For example, while the THC in broad spectrum is non-psychoactive it might be useful for those who are sensitive to THC.

However, if you have severe symptoms full spectrum is more likely to help you.
