If you’re just beginning your journey into CBD, it’s important to understand the types of products available to you and the key differences between them. With this knowledge, you’ll be more informed and able to make a decision on the right fit for your unique needs. In this article, we will explore the differences between broad-spectrum and full-spectrum CBD products to help determine which may be your best fit!
Full Spectrum CBD: What Should You Know?
Generally considered one of the more popular types of cannabinoid products, full-spectrum products contain trace amounts of THC, along with all other naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. The ratios of these cannabinoids can vary widely depending on the specific strain or plant used during the extraction process.
One of the biggest benefits attributed to full-spectrum products is the "entourage effect". This effect happens when the cannabinoids work together synergistically to provide a therapeutic benefit to the person ingesting them. Ultimately, this is believed to encourage a stronger effect than a cannabinoid taken singularly, but can only be achieved by utilizing all of the plants cannabinoids.

Broad Spectrum CBD: What Should You Know?
Broad-spectrum contains all cannabinoids with the exception of THC. Broad spectrum contains zero THC content making it more ideal for people who need maximum benefit while avoiding THC consumption. Isolated CBD (CBD only, no other cannabinoids) is a great base line for people newly introduced to cannabis products, but you may be missing out on the special benefits the other cannabinoids have to offer! For example, CBG may support gut health and an uplifted mood, for some CBN encourages better rest and soothes discomforts. That is only two of the many cannabinoids a broad spectrum hemp extract has to offer, so you can just imagine the realm of benefit!

Third party lab testing is absolutely necessary for any product you may want to consume. Always be sure to check out the third party lab tests to determine the levels of cannabinoids in your product and to ensure there are no heavy metals or pesticides present.
Which Spectrum is Better?
While many people believe that the "entourage effect" provided by full-spectrum CBD products is required to obtain the most benefits possible, the product you choose should ultimately reflect your individual needs. If you live in an area that has laws against THC consumption, broad-spectrum CBD will likely be your best bet. If you are able, trying both forms will help provide better insight into the right fit for your unique needs.
