What is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of over 100-plus cannabinoids and other compounds derived from the cannabis plant, otherwise known as Cannabis sativa. Unlike the more infamous THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is derived from hemp and is non-psychoactive – meaning it will not produce the same “high” commonly associated with marijuana. As one of the most prevalent cannabinoids found in cannabis, CBD has shown the potential to convey a host of potential benefits. This has led to an entire industry devoted to providing CBD products such as CBD tinctures, CBD gummies, CBD capsules, and CBD for sleep to promote better health and wellness.
What is Superior Broad Spectrum?
Our patent-pending Superior Broad Spectrum formula was uniquely designed to redefine the industry standard for hemp extracts by creating a consistently accurate formula with precise levels of different compounds. More specifically, this broad spectrum formula provides consumers with precise levels of CBD, CBG, CBN, and select plant terpenes. By doing so, we’re able to offer all the benefits of CBG and CBN, combined with the well-known CBD benefits – creating a far superior product than any other options available today.
Unlike full spectrum products which will contain higher levels of THC, broad spectrum products provide all the premium properties of various hemp-based compounds without the presence of THC. This is important because THC is what causes a high, and what may result in a failed drug test. By ensuring all of our products are THC-free,* we can offer the plant-based properties of hemp-derived CBD products while providing peace of mind for everyday users. Others may claim to have figured out the formula, but only cbdMD can provide truly Superior Broad Spectrum products at a fraction of the price.

How is CBD Oil Made?
Our CBD comes from industrial hemp, which is defined by the 2018 Farm Bill as cannabis containing less than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis. While there are a number of ways to extract CBD from hemp, cbdMD uses a proprietary process to create our Superior Broad Spectrum CBD formula. Our patent-pending formula sets the standard within the CBD industry by creating one of the only product lines with consistently quantifiable levels of cannabinoids. That means you know exactly what you’re getting each and every time you buy CBD online from cbdMD.
We start by using CBD isolate that’s extracted from the hemp plant before blending it with a precise amount of additional cannabinoids and terpenes to deliver consistent quality across all our products. We blend CBD with additional cannabinoids such as CBG (cannabigerol) and CBN (cannabinol) to create a more robust plant profile for broad spectrum benefits – all without the presence of THC.
To ensure our process is consistent and clean, we use independent, ISO-certified third-party laboratories to test each batch of Superior Broad Spectrum CBD before adding it to our products. The Certificate of Analysis (CoA) for each batch is posted on our website for customers to view. To learn more about the process, checkout our Complete Guide to How CBD Oil is Made.
