Full spectrum CBD extracts a full profile of beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis plant. Sometimes reffered to as whole plant CBD, full spectrum will contain trace amounts of THC, but not enough to get you “high.”
Note: While full spectrum CBD and whole plant CBD are very similar, whole plant CBD is less refined than full spectrum and will contain fats, waxes, and other fibrous materials from the hemp plant..
Broad spectrum CBD is the middle ground option between isolate and full spectrum CBD. It begins as a full spectrum oil, with the full range of beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes, but it then goes through a refinement process to remove all THC compounds.
Isolate refers to an extraction process that, you guessed it, isolates CBD from the rest of the compounds in the cannabis plant.
After CBD concentrate is extracted and separated from the rest of the compounds in the plant, it then goes through a winterization process, which extracts any remaining waxes, terpenes or cannabinoids. This creates a CBD product that tests as high as 99% pure CBD.
