Both full spectrum and broad-spectrum hemp are similar in that they contain multiple cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, all of which work together to create unique therapeutic abilities. This synergy is known as the “entourage effect”.
A Full spectrum CBD extract leaves in trace amounts of THC (under .3 percent). Research suggests that the more compounds that are left to work together alongside CBD, that the effectiveness and benefits are increased. Even in trace amounts, it is possible over time that the THC could show up falsely on a drug test.
The major difference between full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD is that broad spectrum CBD has one less cannabinoid. It does not contain any THC whatsoever. This means its fully removed and there will be no THC in the bloodstream. However, you can still reap the benefits of the remaining cannabinoids and resulting entourage effect. This also means that a broad-spectrum product will NOT show up on a drug test.
