A key differentiator for CBD products relates to the extraction and processing of the Hemp plant. When a product is full- or broad-spectrum, that means that in addition to CBD it contains other compounds that are naturally found in the plant. It is believed that the benefits of these compounds are magnified and enhanced when combined. A broad spectrum is the same as a full-spectrum CBD, the only difference is, a broad-spectrum product contains non-detectable levels of THC. Full-spectrum products cannot contain higher than 0.3% THC and they must be labeled this way.
