What is the Difference Between Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and CBD Isolate?

There are a lot of benefits with CBD. People are taking it in many forms for many different reasons.  You can inhale it, take it as a tincture, beverage additive, capsules, gummies and rub it on as a lotion or a salve. But the big question is, what is the difference between full, broad, and regular CBD? 

Full Spectrum

Full Spectrum utilizes the entire hemp plant which contains multiple cannabinoids and essential oils (terpenes). It does contains a low amount of THC, typically 0.3%. 

Broad Spectrum

Broad Spectrum utilizes the entire hemp plant, which contains multiple cannabinoids and  essential oils (terpenes). The THC is extracted, leaving it lab tested 0% THC free. The most common cannabinoids are CBDV, CBDA, CBGA, CBG, CBD, CBN

CBD Oil (Isolate)

CBD Oil is a cannabinoid that has been isolated and extracted out of the hemp plant. Our CBD is 99.99% pure concentrated CBD oil and is THC Free.

So, what does this all mean if you could potentially be drug tested for a new job, or at your current position?

It is unlikely that a Urine Test would show up positive when consuming a pure CBD isolate (Zero THC). But, if a person is taking a Full-Spectrum, (<.3%) THC, it could build up in the system, and a person could test positive for THC. If a company is testing” sentence to read: If a company is testing for cannabinoids in general, you will test positive because CBD is a cannabinoid.

If you are expecting to be drug tested at work or for a new position, it is okay to ask what they are testing for. Feel free to bring in our bottles, showing the product you are taking is THC free, and you can also ask for one of our Certificates of Analysis (COA). Or stop taking all CBD products prior to a drug test. 

As of right now, all of Organic Hemp Botanicals’ products are strictly CBD and THC FREE.
