Knowing Full Spectrum CBD and Its Advantages Over Broad-Spectrum


Tetrahydrocannabinol is the main reason behind the controversy of legalizing cannabis products as medicine. This intoxicating substance also comprises several medicinal properties but some government authorities don’t want to give it legal recognition. Consequently, we can see broadly classified categories of cannabis products for different states. In the USA, cannabis has 5 different legal statuses that vary from state to state i.e.


     Legal for medical use only

     Legal for medical use but with limited or no THC content

     Completely illegal


Here we are going to talk about cannabis that is legal for medical use but with restrictions on the basis of its THC content. In medical dispensaries, you will find wellness products in two different categories including:-

a)    Full spectrum CBD

b)    Broad-spectrum CBD

CBD isolates are also available at some dispensaries but they don’t work effectively. When it comes to choosing between full and broad-spectrum CBD, we always recommend full spectrum. Let’s understand every aspect of CBD in full-spectrum.

What is Full-spectrum CBD

This classification of cannabis extract is based on cannabinoid composition. A cannabis plant comprises 100+ different cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. Among those, only a few THC dominant compounds are intoxicating. You will find no THC in a broad spectrum CBD product but full-spectrum contains it in nominal amounts. As per the FDA regulation authorities, full-spectrum CBD products cannot contain more than 0.3% of THC. Now the biggest question is, why THC is so important in CBD health supplements? Below is some information to satisfy you.

How Full-spectrum CBD Products Work?

The human body has an endocannabinoid system that produces some cannabinoids naturally. For absorbing external cannabinoids, our body has CB1 and CB2 receptors. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining balance in various neurological and immunity-related functions such as:-



     Sleep cycle

     Insulin level

The CB1 receptor is found in our central nervous system that controls neurological functions whereas CB2 receptors are present in the peripheral nervous system (immunity cells). THC is the compound responsible for triggering the CB1 receptors that we cannot find in broad-spectrum CBD. On the other hand, full-spectrum CBD also comprises the properties of broad-spectrum CBD. This is the main reason why we prefer it for wellness purposes. Now take a look at its medicinal benefits.

Benefits of Consuming CBD in Full Spectrum

     Mental relaxation

THC present in the full-spectrum CBD is helpful in relaxing down the hypertension of our brain. If a person is suffering from stress or depression, regular consumption of full-spectrum CBD may help in relaxing. One can consume it directly through edibles like tinctures, gel capsules or gummies. Also, there are some options of topicals to consider.

     Insulin stabilization

People facing low insulin levels remain prone to type-2 diabetes. If you have diabetes or at a pre-diabetes stage, CBD can help in keeping it stable.

     Low appetite treatment

THC triggers hunger hormones that help in treating low appetite. However, make sure that you are consuming CBD products infused with a very low quantity of THC. A high THC dose may result in extreme hunger.

     Sleeping disorder treatment

Is your sleep cycle disturbed and your daily life routine is messed up? Fluctuation in the endocannabinoid system can be the core reason. THC along with other cannabinoids maintains balance in Melatonin (sleep hormones) level so that you don’t have to suffer from insomnia.

Ongoing studies on cannabinoids are showing significant hopes of adopting cannabis as primary medicine. Its anti-inflammatory properties work efficiently on cancer cells. Hoping for some miraculous outcomes in the upcoming days!
