A Few Good Terms to Know-Broad Spectrum (Part 2)
Updated: Apr 30, 2022
As promised another interesting and good term to know about is broad spectrum.
You may hear this term more in relation to CBD products. While it is very similar to full spectrum (please see previous post for info on this term) what this term refers to is...again a lot of the "goodness" or cannabinoids of the whole plant is kept but the product has been refined to remove the tetrahydrocannabinol or better know as THC.
So you may be asking what are some differences and benefits between full spectrum and broad spectrum. Broad spectrum CBD contains CBD (cannabidiol) a long with cannabinoids and other terpenes, so this may produce the entourage effect. Broad spectrum does not typically contain THC, basically this means that it doesn't produce any unwanted “high” feeling.
Full spectrum however does have trace amounts of THC but as per FDA ( Food and Drug Admin.) there can't be more than .3% THC present.
Full-spectrum products contain all the compounds from a cannabis plant. This means that the entourage effect is strongest in full-spectrum CBD or THC products. It is also the most natural form because it undergoes the least amount of processing.
