What’s the difference between full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD?
It’s easy to get very confused with all different CBD options to choose from. We’ll aim to bring clarity here for you:
Full- Spectrum CBD means it contains all phytochemicals naturally found in the plant, including CBD, trace cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils. Full-spectrum extracts from hemp also come with a negligible THC content- below 0.3%.
Although non-psychoactive, full-spectrum CBD can give you a false positive during a drug test, especially if you consume high doses of CBD oil daily.
That’s when the broad-spectrum CBD comes in.
Broad- spectrum CBD contains cannabidiol and all the other compounds within the plant, except for THC, which is completely removed after the initial extraction.
In a very simplified manner, broad-spectrum provides all the benefits of the entire spectrum of cannabinoids except for the fact that it contains zero THC.
