CBD Isolate, Full Spectrum, and Broad Spectrum - What’s the Difference?

Types of CBD

Those new to the use of CBD products may become easily overwhelmed when it comes to selecting the right CBD product for them. Labels can become confusing and understanding the difference between full spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD isolate products can seem difficult and complex. We are here to assist you in understanding the differences between the three types of CBD.

The difference between full and broad spectrum CBD is the amount of THC present. As with all legal CBD products, our CBD Topical Oil does not contain more than 0.3% THC. Broad-spectrum CBD products contain all compounds naturally found in the cannabis plant, but don't contain any THC.

Full spectrum CBD products contain less than 0.3% THC and other minor cannabinoids. The small amounts of THC help the CBD work better in the body when ingested. At Empower, we strive to make the best products available, and find that adding a small amount of THC and minor cannabinoids to our Full Spectrum 9000mg CBD Drops gives better results. Those wanting to avoid THC or who cannot test positive on a drug test should avoid Full Spectrum CBD products and opt for products made with Broad Spectrum or CBD Isolate. 

Broad Spectrum CBD in ingestible products are also a great option for people who want the benefits of the minor cannabinoids but want to avoid the THC altogether, as there is no THC in broad spectrum CBD.

CBD isolate is best used in topical products, as it has no smell, doesn’t contain the oleoresins and waxes that are found in full and broad spectrum CBD, and incorporates into topical products smoothly, adding only benefits and never sticky, oily, or greasy sensations when applied to the skin. 

No matter the type of CBD product you prefer, understanding the benefits of the different kinds of CBD makes it easy for you to choose the best option for your needs. Our favorite full spectrum option is our 9000mg CBD Drops!
