With so many different CBD options on the market today, you may feel overwhelmed by all your choices. You may be wondering what are the differences between broad spectrum CBD and full spectrum CBD? These questions are normal, and we’re here to explore all your options and what you can expect when you begin using both types of CBD. Let’s get started!
What is full spectrum vs broad spectrum?
The main difference between full spectrum and broad spectrum products is that full spectrum has other cannabinoids in addition to cannabidiol (CBD). There are many different cannabinoids, but two well-studied ones are THC and CBD. For a product to be considered full spectrum or broad spectrum, it must contain trace amounts of these additional cannabinoids. So a full spectrum product would contain both CBD and THC (or at least some amount of each), while a broad spectrum product would contain more than just CBD and THC. It’s important to understand how much cannabinoid content there is in any given product before using it for its intended purpose. Let’s take a closer look at what makes up these two categories.
When would you use full spectrum CBD oil?
Looking to experience all of the benefits that hemp has to offer? Choose CBD that’s made with full spectrum extract. This type of CBD extract includes all plant compounds, including terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids, including THC. It will also be a higher concentration than broad spectrum or isolate. Full spectrum may feel stronger than other types of CBD oil. While stronger, more concentrated doses may not need to be consumed as often as smaller amounts. Tinctures are pre-measured, so your serving size is flexible within a given range of how much you use at once versus frequency (versus measuring out an exact amount). You can check out our range of Full Spectrum Products, which contains less than .3% Delta-9-THC by weight.
When would you use broad spectrum CBD oil?
If you want to use CBD oil for health purposes, broad spectrum is a better option. This gives your body more of what it needs to stay healthy and healthy in a variety of ways. For example, if you were looking for relief from anxiety and stress and discomfort, a broad spectrum CBD would be ideal. However, if your main concern is alleviating physical pain or discomfort, then a full spectrum CBD would be better suited to help with that because it has more healing properties directly related to relieving physical distress. There’s also no risk of overdosing on broad spectrum oils compared to full spectrum oils; there’s no need to worry about using too much and getting more than you need. Broad spectrum CBD is a great option for those who want to benefit from all of the natural plant compounds without worrying about being exposed to THC.
Side effects & health benefits of each
Broad spectrum (pure) CBD contains hundreds of different cannabinoids in varying amounts, including THC. Broad spectrum hemp extract is derived from all parts of hemp plants and has very little to no THC. Because it’s made from all parts of hemp plant, broad spectrum can still contain trace amounts of THC, but below 0.3%. As a result, broad spectrum products don’t produce psychoactive effects (euphoria) or have any noticeable effect on your body. Full spectrum CBD is extracted from both sides of cannabis sativa plants, which means it contains both full spectrum cannabinoid like CBD and other beneficial compounds like terpenes. THC to cannabidiol (CBD) ratio in full spectrum products is usually small enough so that users do not feel high. That said, some users experience feelings of euphoria after using full-spectrum CBD oil. If you have further questions about which CBD extract is right for your body’s specific needs, talk to your doctor to learn what works best for you.
