Since the arrival of mainstream CBD oils, the most sought-after oil has unquestionably been ‘Full Spectrum’.

So what does Full Spectrum actually mean?

The cannabis plant contains hundreds of different phytochemicals including cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds. Full spectrum CBD or hemp oil generally refers to products that not only contain CBD but contain the other plant molecules as well. This version of CBD oil is minimally refined, leaving most of the cannabinoids and terpenes intact and in the oil.
Full spectrum, sometimes also called “whole plant,” means the full plant extract is included. Full spectrum provides all of the plant’s molecules in ratios and amounts that nature intended.  However, 100Mg of full plant extract will not contain 100Mg of CDB!  Also as expected, a full plant extract comes with a distinctive taste and the strength and level of refinement will grossly alter the colour, flavour and smell of the product.

Enter Broad Spectrum……..

Broad-Spectrum CBD oils are manufactured through the process of distillation (separation of full plant extract into individual chemical components).  These individual components can then be blended leaving out those with no benefits / waste plant matter to create an oil that offers all the benefits of a full-spectrum oil, without any chance of THC being present and a much smoother, more refined taste.  Broad-spectrum oils are an excellent choice for individuals that want the benefit of a full spectrum but can’t have any traces of THC in their system and appreciate a more refined taste.

In essence there is not a huge difference between Full spectrum and Broad Spectrum CBD oils, both come from full plant extract and the list of potential health benefits is huge.
That said, the additional refinement involved in producing Broad Spectrum allows us to guarantee exactly what is in the product and that it is completely free of THC Here at Verjur we are proud of our products and believe a Broad Spectrum oil to be superior to Full Spectrum.  This is why you will not find Full Spectrum on our shelves.
