These terms refer to different types of CBD extracts. They indicate how a CBD product was processed and how much of the whole plant was preserved.
The Differences Between Each Type of CBD Product
Full Spectrum CBD: Minimally processed and closest to the whole plant as possible. Contains helpful secondary cannabinoids and trace amounts of THC.
Broad Spectrum CBD: Processed more heavily than full spectrum oil and does not contain any trace amounts of THC.
Isolate CBD: Processed heavily to contain only CBD. Does not include secondary cannabinoids.
Benefits of Full Spectrum
Full Spectrum CBD provides all the constituents of the plant as mother nature intended. Because of that, it is more efficacious in helping with all kinds of ailments.
Often, you will need less of a Full Spectrum product to achieve the same results. Suzie’s calls for 1 mg per 10 pounds of body weight. Many Broad Spectrum products recommend 2 mg per 10 pounds of body weight. Choosing full spectrum can help to save money, and provide more tangible results.
