Broad spectrum CBD. What is it and what makes it great? There’s a lot to know about broad spectrum CBD and it can be overwhelming to start learning about. Fortunately, the experts at Elixinol have a tapestry of knowledge on the subject--read on to find out all about broad spectrum CBD and why Elixinol’s high-quality, broad spectrum products stand above the rest.
What does Broad Spectrum CBD mean?
When it comes to CBD, there are three different cannabinoid spectrum options. Broad spectrum falls between full spectrum and CBD isolate. Broad-spectrum contains CBD and all the other compounds within the plant, except for THC, which is completely removed in the extraction process. Other cannabinoids are present in broad spectrum, providing a version of the “entourage effect” but without THC. The entourage effect refers to the synergy achieved by all the components in the hemp plant. These components work together to enhance it’s benefits.
Benefits of Broad Spectrum CBD
The benefits of broad spectrum CBD are numerous. For starters, since broad spectrum products contain non-detectable levels of THC, they’re a good option for folks who want to avoid THC entirely. But more generally, the benefits of broad spectrum CBD are, well, broad. Just like CBD. Broad spectrum, like full-spectrum CBD, can help with occasional stress and sleep issues. It can also aid in inflammation and muscle recovery after working out.

How is Broad Spectrum CBD made?
So, how exactly is broad spectrum CBD made? Well, at Elixinol, we take a thoughtful and research backed approach to our broad spectrum extract. Our broad spectrum oil is phytocannabinoid rich and has similar characteristics to full spectrum oil, except without traces of THC.

We aren’t diluting the extract with CBD isolate or hemp seed oil to get the THC level down to the non-detect level.
In our oil, phytocannabinoids work together to make the product effective--resulting in a high quality product with more benefits. No solvents and full of perks, our broad spectrum CBD products stick out from the rest.
