Compare Full Spectrum CBD With Broad Spectrum CBD

Compare Full Spectrum CBD With Broad Spectrum CBD

Which type of CBD is right for you? This is a tricky question and very difficult to answer. It really depends on what you are looking for. Whether you want just CBD and no other components from the cannabis plant or you may appreciate all the chemical compounds or cannabinoids, but you may also want all cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBN and all the terpenes but no THC. The choice is yours really. Some may be reserved about THC as THC has psychoactive effects and THC in CBD products may appear in drug tests while some will require the benefits of THC.

It be is believed that full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD will provide an entourage effect. Entourage Effect is the theory when the full spectrum of cannabis plants works best together. Which means that all the cannabinoids (CBD, d9-THC, CBG, CBC, CBN, CBDA, THCV, CBD, CBGA, d8-THC and THCA) will work together to create the most beneficial effect for your body.

Broad spectrum and Full spectrum CBD are very much alike, apart from the fact that full spectrum includes THC too as THC with its psychoactive properties will merge with pain-relieving and medicinal healing properties from the terpenes and cannabinoids. Researchers have pointed out that full spectrum may have the greatest entourage effect out of the three types of CBD. More research is definitely needed to understand the full potential benefits of CBD.

Full spectrum has terpenes. Terpenes is responsible for producing aroma, flavors and colors in plants and animals. Terpenes is present in cannabis plants too. It is said that terpenes and flavonoids have neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties combining with the different cannabinoids and the psychoactive properties of THC can help CBD be a very effective natural holistic supplement to boost both physical and mental health.

What is Broad Spectrum CBD?

Broad Spectrum CBD is very similar to full spectrum. It has the same cannabinoids and terpenes, except the broad spectrum is THC free. A good choice for people looking for the entourage effect, but without THC. People may have their own feelings about THC. Some may not want the euphoric sensation from THC or maybe some may want to avoid THC since THC in their CBD product may show up in drug tests. Please note that while the broad spectrum may not include THC, there may be low level THC residue left.
