What's the meaning of Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, Isolate and No Spectrum?

Full Spectrum

Full spectrum CBD has numerous other cannabinoid compounds from the cannabis plant, along with low levels of THC. Usually, the THC quantities are less than 0.3% on a dry weight basis, since this is the federal law requirement for CBD products. This low quantity of THC is not usually potent enough to cause the “high” that people typically associate with cannabis. However, the levels of THC can increase when the manufacturer creates a concentrate. For example, some tinctures can contain up to 2 milligrams per milliliter of THC, and this can, in some cases, have a euphoric effect. Full spectrum CBD also contains terpenes from the cannabis plant. Terpenes tend to give plants their scent. Research points to the existence of the “entourage effect,” which posits that when multiple cannabis plant compounds are present along with CBD extract, this increases the health benefits of the CBD.

Broad Spectrum

Broad spectrum CBD products also contain additional compounds from the cannabis plant, such as cannabichromene (CBC), cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG) and terpenes, such as myrcene, limonene, or pinene. Most broad-spectrum CBD products do not contain THC. However, on occasion, products may have trace amounts. Like full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD products may also have some additional health benefits due to the resulting “entourage effect.” Broad spectrum CBD may be more suitable for people who wish to avoid THC, as even the low amounts in full spectrum CBD could show up on a drug test.

Isolate

CBD isolate only contains CBD and does not have any additional compounds from the cannabis plant. People who wish to avoid THC altogether may prefer to choose CBD isolate products. By using CBD isolate products, a person can determine whether or not CBD alone effectively eases their ailments, as there are no other active compounds present that may interfere or interact with its effect. As mentioned above, there is evidence to suggest that the use of CBD products containing multiple cannabis plant compounds may produce more prominent effects.

No Spectrum

No spectrum products do not contain cannabis compounds in them.
