Broad Spectrum vs. Full Spectrum: What’s the Difference?

The hemp plant has many different beneficial properties, and CBD is just one of them. That’s why we support our CBD extract with a whole spectrum of other hemp ingredients like cannabinoids, terpenes, and amino acids. All of these ingredients can help support the variety of CBD benefits. With this in mind, there are some differences between broad spectrum and full spectrum formulas.

Broad spectrum

Broad spectrum CBD extract contains multiple hemp components, but no detectable THC. THC is the cannabinoid that causes intoxication and that most drug tests are designed to detect.

  • cbdMD’s Superior Broad Spectrum formula includes CBD, cannabinol, and cannabigerol
  • No detectable levels of THC
  • Includes select terpenes
Full spectrum

Full spectrum CBD extract contains the widest array of hemp ingredients, including a small amount of THC.

  • Full spectrum formula includes six different cannabinoids
  • Low potency full spectrum (< 0.3% THC by weight; trace levels of THC)
  • Includes multiple terpenes, amino acids, and flavonoids

Delta 9 THC: What’s the Difference?

Delta 9 is a little different from the “raw” THC found in cannabis, but it offers the same feeling. Our high potency full spectrum formula has enough delta 9 THC (10 mg THC per gummy) to experience the full effects. Our low-potency full spectrum formula has only trace amounts of THC, while our original broad spectrum formula is guaranteed THC-free.*

Hemp derived Delta 9 thc

Delta 9 THC is derived from industrial hemp, but it’s potent enough that you can feel the difference.

  • Full spectrum formula plus concentrated levels of hemp derived Delta 9 THC
  • High potency full spectrum formula (up to 10 mg THC per serving)
  • Includes full plat profile of cannabinoids, terpenes, and THC

Delta 9 vs. Delta 8 and Delta 10: What’s the Difference?

Delta 8 and Delta 10 are also derived from hemp, but are naturally occurring at much lower concentrations. This means that the cannabinoids must be synthetically recreated in order to create a product that results in any lasting effects. Delta 9 THC however can be found at higher concentrations and does not need to be synthetically recreated, resulting in products that are less manufactured and more potent. You’ll see fewer mg in our delta 9 products than in delta 8 products, but trust us, you’ll still feel it!
