Why the difference?
Great question. Lets start off by defining the two. For context, we will include the definition of Full spectrum.
- Full spectrum
- Whole plant cannabis extract typically from hemp. Hemp has a higher CBD concentration, with very low THC as opposed to Marijuana which has higher concentrations of THC and lower CBD.
- Thick oil, colour can range from golden honey-like to dark molasses depending on amount of chlorophyll and other organic compounds.
- CBD concentration can vary - THC concentration anywhere from 0.3% to 2%
- Broad spectrum
- Broad spectrum is full spectrum extract that has had THC removed in order to be sold as a CBD product.
- Many CBD products can use full spectrum as international standards for THC concentration are predominantly 0.3% to 0.5%
- In South Africa, THC concentration for CBD products must be less than 0.001% hence the requirement to remove THC from the whole plant extract.
- Think oil, typically lighter in colour than full spectrum. Similar to honey.
- Single compound extracted from plant. CBD isolate is removed from full spectrum or 'crude' extract.
- The compound extracted is a fat soluble, white crystalline powder.
- CBD content of powder can be anywhere from 85% to 99.9% depending on desired inclusion of trace cannabinoids, terpenes and compounds desired in the end product.
High concentration extracts and isolates require reconstitution into a 'carrier' oil. We use organic coconut oil as the carrier for our products.
As the products are natural and farmed, concentrations can be slightly different from batch to batch. Adding the oil allows us to ensure that the exact right amount of CBD is in your tincture and dosing can be accurate and consistent.
