How to choose your CBD – Full Spectrum or Broad Spectrum?

As CBD continues to gain popularity among people from all walks of life, ranging from those who are health and wellness aficionados to those who are just beginning to take an interest, people are captivated by CBD and its health benefits.

At Mylaso, we understand that whether you’re knowledgeable about CBD products or you’re exploring CBD for the very first time, it’s important to understand the type of CBE in the products your considering using.

Essentially, there are three basic types of CBD: full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate. Each form is derived from the cannabis plant, and while they may sound similar, there are significant differences between the three.

So, let’s take a closer look at the difference between full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate. And while we’re at it, let’s discuss what you should be looking for when selecting a CBD product!

Full Spectrum CBD?

Full spectrum CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant and includes various other compounds in the plant, including terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids. Because full spectrum CBD contains all the plant’s compounds, that means it also contains THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the part of the cannabis plant that causes psychoactive side effects (aka – getting high).

Full spectrum CBD offers several health benefits however, there are also some drawbacks. The presence of THC in full spectrum CBD can produce psychoactive or sedative side effects. At certain levels, it may also show up on drug tests, resulting in legal ramifications depending on the laws of your home state. For those reasons, Mylaso does not use full spectrum CBD in our products.

What is Broad Spectrum CBD?

Broad Spectrum is similar to full spectrum however, there are important differences. Broad spectrum CBD is CBD that has been extracted from the cannabis plant containing all the beneficial compounds, except for THC. That means it contains terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids from the plant. This should not result in psychoactive effects, but there is still more research to be done. And because there is no THC in Mylaso’sbroad spectrum CBD, it will not show up on a drug test.

What about CBD Isolate?

CBD isolate represents the purest form of CBD. It’s extracted from the plant with no other compounds or cannabinoids. It very clean and contains no terpenes or essential oils in it. It also contains no THC, so it does not cause psychoactive side effects, and it will not show up on a drug test. It’s simply pure CBD. As a pure isolate, it’s important to note that you do not get the full benefits of several other beneficial compounds that are part of broad spectrum CBD.

Mylaso CBD

Now that you know the differences between full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate, you’re probably wondering what kind of CBD we use to create our products here at Mylaso. We use a proprietary hemp extraction and purification process that involves supercritical CO2, a commonly used method of extraction. This makes sure that many of hemp’s beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are preserved in the process. The result? The highest quality broad spectrum hemp oil available.

While CBD on its own offers many benefits, a growing body of research has found that a broad spectrum product leads to multiplying benefits. This is called the entourage effect.
