What’s The Difference?
Here’s a quick and general overview of the primary differences between full spectrum vs broad spectrum CBD:
Full Spectrum CBD
Full-spectrum is unrefined and contains all of the naturally occurring plant extracts from the cannabis plant such as CBD, terpenes*, essential oils, and fatty acids. It also contains a low THC content of <0.3%. All of these compounds work synergistically and this is known as the “entourage effect”.
Broad Spectrum CBD
It is similar to full-spectrum CBD except for all traces of THC are removed.
*What are terpenes and how do they influence CBD?
Terpenes are molecules that provide a unique aroma and flavor to CBD products but terpenes also increase the effectiveness of the CBD product. They play a role in the entourage effect by influencing the cannabinoids directly and thus provide specific health benefits to our body. There are dozens of different terpenes present in the cannabis plant.
