Full spectrum CBD is created from the extracting process of a full hemp plant. Which means it may contain up to potentially 113 different cannabinoids that have been found in the the plant. These products will contain a lower amount than 0.3% THC which CAN show up on a drug test if built up over time. Full spectrum may contain many of the plants natural terpenes, vitamins, flavonoids and proteins to induce that entourage effect.
Full spectrum CBD can come in many different types of variations from gummies, oils, serums and the list goes on. It comes down to which way the consumer ultimately would like to take there daily dose of CBD. Our only concern with full spectrum is THC can build up in your system over time and could possibly show positive on a drug screening. So if drug screening is a problem we advise you to stick soley to broad spectrum or isolate products!
Broad Spectrum CBD
Broad spectrum CBD products are created by taking full spectrum extract and further processing it to remove any trace amounts of THC. Other methods involve taking the CBD isolate, and reintroducing isolates of other cannabinoids and terpenes you would find in a full spectrum product, but omitting the THC. Broad spectrum products will typically have lower amounts of the other cannabinoids that you would usually find in a full spectrum product. This provides the consumer with some of the “entourage effect” found in full spectrum, but does not contain any detectable amount of THC. Broad spectrum products can come in many different variations such as CBD oils, CBD tinctures, gummies.
CBD isolate is processed by removing all of the other molecules and cannabinoids from hemp besides CBD. With this all that remains is CBD in a powder state that is at least 99% pure CBD and 0% THC. CBD isolate is applied into various amounts of products such as oils, CBD topicals, cbd gummies, vapes and edibles. If a consumer is looking for strictly only CBD products this would be the best route.
