Full spectrum, broad spectrum, isolate, what’s the difference?
Full spectrum: This, just like it sounds contains the full spectrum of the plant, THC, CBD, CBN,CBG, ect. Do not be fooled: If it does not have THC it is not full spectrum. While the THC in full spectrum is very slight it is always present.
Broad spectrum: Broad spectrum CBD contains CBD and terpenes, but no THC.
CBD Isolate: Contains no THC, no terpenes, just CBD. This is CBD in it’s purest and most powerful form.
