The spectrums

What is the difference between Full Spectrum vs Broad Spectrum CBD Oil? The difference is THC. Phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids) are naturally occurring elements of the cannabis plant, hemp.

There are over 115 cannabinoids present in the hemp plant. Made up of CBDs and THCs, each one with a variety of benefits. And there could be up to 200 terpenes.

CBD & THC have many benefits

CBD & THC have many benefits, these are a mere snippet:

Everything the plant has to offer, including flavonoids, terpenes, lipid fatty acids and a small amount of THC around 0.3% Full-spectrum oils has the natural smells, colour, and tastes of Hemp.

Broad-Spectrum CBD Oil

can be up to 80% pure, also called a THC-free distillate, because there are only trace elements of THC, around 0.0005%.  Broad-Spectrum is a better choice for people who want a cleaner CBD experience, with a Wide Variety of Cannabinoids. And minimal impurities.

According to studies, the broad-spectrum distillate is less potent than its full-spectrum counterpart.  This is because of the lack of terpenes, flavonoids and lipid fats. As terpenes have their array of benefits.  The beauty of Broad-Spectrum is to enjoy the benefits of CBD without the flavonoids.

This removes the strong earthy tastes and smells and gives your taste buds a more pleasant experience.  The distillate can be applied to an MCT Carrier Oil or foods and if so desired can have the terpenes added back to the mix.

It’s easier to create a fabulous tasting CBD oil using distillates. We have a delightful blueberry-flavoured CBD Oil.
