Broad Spectrum CBD Oil

CBD oil is one of the hundreds of exogenous cannabinoids sources from Cannabis sativa or industrial hemp, which is completely non-psychoactive and does not cause any narcotic effects.  CBD is well-known for its therapeutic properties because it can interact with our central cell signaling system's endocannabinoid receptors and help in carrying out several physiological processes.  It is available in several types of products such as capsules, oil, tincture, vapes, edibles and topical.  Different types of CBD are used to make these products that are:

  •   CBD isolate
  •   Full-spectrum CBD
  •   Broad-spectrum CBD

What is a Broad-Spectrum CBD?

Broad-spectrum CBD is a General extraction of industrial hemp or Cannabis sativa.  It contains various other phytonutrients and cannabinoids such as cannabichromene, cannabinol, CBG and terpenes such as pinene limonene and myrcene.  Generally, broad spectrum CBD oil does not contain THC  and does not cause any psychoactive effects.  Several methods are used to extract broad-spectrum CBD from the Cannabis plant, such as:

  •   Steam distillation
  •   Solvent extraction
  •   Carbon dioxide extraction
  •   Liquid extraction

Benefits of broad-spectrum CBD

Unlike CBD isolate, broad-spectrum CBD contains different phytonutrients and that work together to create the entourage effect. All these compounds act in synergy and enhance each other's effect. CBD isolate may be very potent, but broad-spectrum CBD offers a wholesome effect and promotes overall health.

How is Broad-Spectrum CBD oil made?

Broad-spectrum CBD oil is made by using two techniques.  In the first one, the THC content from the extract is removed, and the rest of the mixture is called the draught spectrum CBD oil and the rest of the mixture is called broad-spectrum CBD oil.  Another way to produce broad-spectrum CBD oil is to take CBD to isolate and then reintroduce all essential compounds cannabinoids and phytonutrients except THC. The most preferred method to carry out this process is the carbon dioxide extraction method.

When to use Broad-Spectrum CBD?

Broad-spectrum CBD is a perfect choice for those who want to get benefit from the Cannabis whole extract yet avoid THC all together.  Full-spectrum CBD could trigger a positive drug test, leading to legal complications; however, broad-spectrum CBD will not as it is almost THC free.  If a drug test is not a problem for you, you should avoid THC even if you are sensitive to its psychoactive properties.  A larger quantity of THC can increase the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
