Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum CBD
CBD is just one of more than 113 different cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Research has shown that taking a full spectrum CBD is more beneficial to your ECS system.
Full Spectrum CBD.
Full-spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all compounds found occurring naturally in the plant, including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids. This is the best CBD you can buy.
Each cannabinoid has its own therapeutic role on the body. By keeping the full spectrum of cannabinoids contained within the plant, it magnifies the therapeutic benefits, which is commonly referred to as the entourage effect.
Below of common cannabinoids found in a full spectrum CBD,
CBDA (Cannabidiolic Acid)

Broad Spectrum CBD.
Broad-spectrum CBD products go through further extraction than a full spectrum CBD product. This extra extraction removes more of the cannabinoid, terpenes and usually all the THC. This extraction usually involves ethanol and other chemicals. Ethanol is a safe way to extracted CBD, however if the plant is not correctly processed these chemicals can end up in final CBD product.
By further refining CBD and removing theses important parts of the plant reduces the bio availability and the ‘entourage effect’.
CBD Isolate Products.
CBD isolate products do not contain any other spectrum of cannabinoids or terpenes. The extraction process removes all the other plant matter all the other cannabinoids until only CBD remains in a crystal form. The CBD is then suspended in a carrier oil such as coconut oil or olive oil.
The biggest downside is that all the other helpful cannabinoids and terpenes are removed, this is common in cheap low-quality CBD products.
