What is Broad-Spectrum CBD?
Broad-Spectrum CBD products contain various compounds and cannabinoids from the cannabis plant, including cannabichromene (CBC), cannabinol, and terpenes, such as myrcene, limonene, or pinene.
Broad-spectrum CBD typically contains no THC. However, some products will contain trace quantities.
There are several ways to extract CBD from the cannabis plant. These include:
- Steam distillation
- Solvent extraction
- Carbon dioxide extraction
- Lipid extraction
The strain of the cannabis plant, its classification, and the extraction process may affect CBD’s composition.
Broad-spectrum CBD falls somewhere between full-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate. Although broad-spectrum CBD contains multiple compounds, it does not typically contain THC.
