Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a product that’s derived from cannabis. It’s a type of cannabinoid, which are the chemicals naturally found in marijuana plants. Even though it comes from marijuana plants, CBD doesn’t create a “high” effect or any form of intoxication — that’s caused by another cannabinoid, known as THC.
Broad-spectrum CBD products contain almost every compound found in the cannabis plant. But there’s generally one key element missing: THC.
The lack of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) makes broad-spectrum products different from full-spectrum products, which do contain a little THC — less than 0.3 percent to be considered legal.
Broad-spectrum products are also different from CBD isolate products. CBD isolate is pure CBD, with no other cannabis compounds.
