When shopping for CBD, two common labels or groups of CBD products you will see are full spectrum CBD and broad spectrum CBD. Both are CBD, but your experience will differ heavily depending on which kind of CBD you use. We’ve spoken about full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD in the past, but we believe it is important to reiterate and stress the differences between the two so you can make an informed decision of which kind of CBD is the best for you.
What is Full Spectrum CBD?
Full spectrum CBD is made using the entirety of the hemp plant. This incorporates all of the nutrients, terpenes, and cannabinoids present in the plant in the final product. The interaction of all of these cannabinoids, including trace amounts of THC, helps increase the effectiveness of all of them. The interaction between these cannabinoids is known as the entourage effect. This means you’ll get more benefits out of your CBD and enhanced benefits from other cannabinoids like CBN and CBG. Most full spectrum CBD products (ours included) contain less than .3% THC. You shouldn’t experience any psychoactive effects on a dose this low but if you are sensitive to THC you should avoid full spectrum CBD products.
What is Broad Spectrum CBD?
Broad spectrum CBD contains most cannabinoids, but not THC. It is still possible to experience the entourage effect without THC, but the effect will be slightly less pronounced. Broad Spectrum CBD is a happy medium between CBD isolates and full spectrum extracts, allowing you to experience the entourage effect without THC. If you are sensitive to THC, we recommend taking broad spectrum CBD or a CBD isolate product. There is some research showing that full spectrum CBD lasts longer and has more pronounced effects than broad spectrum CBD.
