Broad spectrum CBD is one of the main forms of cannabidiol. When you purchase CBD oil, it is either full-spectrum, broad spectrum, or CBD isolate. The difference is what is in the CBD.
Broad spectrum CBD contains several of the natural-occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant, minus THC. So, while it is not considered pure CBD because it contains other compounds, it does not have THC. The other compounds in broad spectrum work together to enhance the benefits.
Full spectrum CBD contains the other cannabis compounds and can contain trace amounts of THC. There is not enough THC to get you high, however, if you are concerned about having any THC in your system, you should lean towards broad spectrum CBD oil or CBD isolate.
CBD isolate is pure CBD. During the extraction process all other compounds are removed, so this is considered the purest form of CBD. Because it doesn’t contain any of the other compounds that work to enhance the CBD, it may not be as potent as broad or full spectrum CBDs.
What are the Pros and Cons of Broad-Spectrum CBD?
The pro to using broad spectrum CBD is it does not contain any THC. But, this can also be considered a drawback as THC and other compounds work together to create an entourage effect, which means they enhance the benefits of each other. So, CBD without any THC may not be as potent. It does contain other cannabis compounds such as terpenes, additional cannabinoids and flavonoids so it does have those added entourage benefits.
Broad-spectrum CBD oil has been shown to have some health benefits, including reducing the symptoms of anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. It has also been found to help with better sleep and to help reduce symptoms of epilepsy and other conditions.
How to Choose the Right Broad-Spectrum CBD?
When you are searching for any type of CBD product, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you want to make sure the company you are purchasing the CBD from is well known and has a reputation for safety, quality, and transparency. Make sure the company provides proof of third-party testing by a lab and discloses the source of the hemp.
Other things you should look for include, no additives or chemicals and test results showing they do not use heavy metals or pesticides. A good place to look is product reviews to see what other customers are saying about the company and its products.
