What is full spectrum?

Full spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all compounds found naturally occurring in the plant, including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids.


The full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils extracted from the plant work together to magnify the therapeutic benefits of each individual cannabinoid. This is commonly referred to as the "entourage effect".  


Since full spectrum is using all the compounds, it should be noted that THC is present an can be, legally up to .3%.  Although the amount is small it can potentially show up on drug screenings.

What is Broad Spectrum?

Broad Spectrum CBD is a bit of a mix between Full Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate.


Like Full Spectrum CBD, the other compounds found within the plant are preserved in the extract; however, like CBD Isolate, THC is completely removed.


Because Broad Spectrum contains multiple cannabinoids, it can deliver the enhanced benefits of the “entourage effect,” without the risk of psychoactive effects of THC.

What is CBD Isolate?

An Isolate is the purest form of a compound, which is produced by singularly extracting that compound from its environment and isolating it from all other compounds.


With that being said, CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD, which is produced by removing all other compounds found in the plant including terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids.

Throughout the valley you will find CBD at many places like gas station, vape/smoke shops, grocery stores and shops specializing in CBD.  Let's look at each.


Gas stations and Grocery stores - Neither will take the time to educate you on CBD, methods or quality.  This is not their specialty so they lack the education and can't dedicate time to one customer.  They also don't have a wide selection.  


Vape/Smoke shops - Along the same lines they are likely to have a little more education than the gas station and grocery store but they recently added CBD to their product offering in order to join the CBD rush.  The environment isn't to inviting to a new CBD user and the product selection is not as great as store that specializes in CBD.  Some are now even manufacturing their own product so they will push that line. 


Other CBD Specialty stores - Some call themselves "Dispensaries".  By definition a dispensary is a room where medicines are prepared/provided or a facility that prepares and sells medical marijuana.   Per the FDA the only approved medicine is Epidiolex and CBD "dispensaries" can't sell medical marijuana so it's an obvious play on actual MMJ Dispensaries.  These places typically have the knowledge to help educate but all throughout the valley you'll find they are also the manufacturer as well.  They either market it as their own or change the name so it looks like there is no affiliation with the store itself.   Look at the selection, oils for example, how many brands do they carry of the same product?  Chances are not many, if any other than their own.  Always, always, always ask for quality results!
