What’s the Difference between Full Spectrum CBD, Broad Spectrum CBD, and CBD Isolate?

What does it mean when a CBD product is “full spectrum”, “broad spectrum”, or “CBD isolate” thrown?

Which one is best?

It depends on the person!

Full Spectrum CBD

Full spectrum CBD oil contains more than just the CBD cannabinoid. It includes all cannabinoids (like CBN, CBG, CBC), terpenes, terpenoids, flavonoids, and many other compounds found in the hemp plant. It also contains trace, legal amounts of THC (under 0.3%). Full spectrum hemp oil provides the “entourage effect”, which is when compounds work together to enhance & amplify each individual effect.

Studies and many personal experiences show full spectrum CBD often offers higher relief for most subjects, as opposed to CBD isolate. Research also shows full spectrum hemp enhances effects with increased dosages, while CBD isolate effects remain consistent.

Those seeking full spectrum CBD oil usually want to experience the full benefits and entourage effect of hemp or need a THC:CBD ratio.

Broad Spectrum CBD

Broad spectrum CBD oil is essentially full spectrum CBD without the THC.

Broad spectrum CBD contains all cannabinoids, terpenes, and compounds too - but NO THC. Although other hemp compounds are preserved, the THC is entirely removed. As a result, the cannabinoids & hemp compounds still offer the “entourage effect”.

Broad Spectrum CBD is ideal for those who want the benefits of full spectrum CBD without consuming THC. Even though full spectrum CBD does not get people high, everyone is different, and some folks are more sensitive than others. Broad spectrum CBD provides the synergetic effects of hemp for those who are sensitive to THC or simply wish to avoid it.

CBD Isolate

CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD. The extraction process isolates the CBD and entirely removes traces of THC, cannabinoids, terpenes, oils, chlorophyll, and all other hemp compounds. It has no taste, odor, or psychoactive effects. Thus, it’s a great option for those sensitive to both THC and other cannabinoids or hemp compounds. It’s also helpful for those living in states with stricter cannabinoid laws.

Although people don’t receive the full benefits of the entourage effect, CBD isolate can be very helpful for those who need high doses of CBD or are concerned about drug testing.

Which is best?

Full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate are all regularly used for countless health issues and disorders. This includes chronic pain, anxiety, depression, reproductive health, bone conditions, inflammation, gastrointestinal issues, sleep support, and much much more.

Everyone is different. It takes time to find what hemp extract, dosage, and delivery method works best for each body.
