Full Spectrum vs. Isolate

If you’re new to the world of hemp and CBD, you’ve probably seen several products labeled ‘Full Spectrum’ or ‘Isolate’ and asked yourself, “what’s the difference?”

Full Spectrum CBD

Full-spectrum CBD is made with an extract that contains all or nearly all of the compounds naturally present in the cannabis plant. Which includes CBD, as well as other cannabinoids (CBN, CBC, and CBG to name just a few), terpenes, flavonoids, THC (which needs to be under .3%), etc. 


Isolate only contains CBD, which if you plan on using CBD daily and in large amounts, isolate may be the way to go if your job performs drug tests, since there is no THC present.


If you want what Full Spectrum offers, minus the THC, then Broad Spectrum would be your next best bet.
