- FULL SPECTRUM: Products using full spectrum extract give users the full “entourage effect“ as cannabinoids, flavonoids, chlorophyll, terpenes and the natural fatty acids found in hemp are all left in, enabling them to work together to give the user the full, optimal effect. Full spectrum products contain trace levels of THC (<0.3%). CBD and THC are synergistic, meaning they rely on each other to work to their full potential. This synergistic relationship means full spectrum products are able to provide higher levels of relief. Examples of full spectrum products you can purchase through us are
- BROAD SPECTRUM: Products using broad spectrum extract are similar to full spectrum, but they contain zero traces of THC. Broad spectrum products contain all cannabinoids in the hemp plant except for THC. These products are ideal if you want as much of the plant as possible, but want to exclude THC for personal, medical or legal reasons. Examples of broad spectrum products you can purchase through us are:
- ISOLATE: Products using CBD isolate means full isolation of only CBD, in its purest form, has taken place. Users will find no other compounds from the hemp plant in these products. Isolate often comes as 99% pure CBD and looks like a white, crystalline substance. It can easily be mixed with foods and drinks without the “hemp taste”. Examples of our products using isolate are all of our Elevate Bakery goodies. Team favorites include:
