What’s the interesting difference between broad-spectrum and full-spectrum CBD oil?

You’ll be interested to know we’re now stocking a broad spectrum CBD sport range. Along with the aches and pains balm, you can now get a CBD oil roll-on and recovery oil. The CBD-infused protein balls are a particular favourite! They’re so tasty.

As with all our products, our broad spectrum CBD range fully comply with UK law and are completely THC free, meaning there are no psychoactive side effects.

When cannabis oil is made, there are various types of oil that are derived. This is due to the strain of the plant, some have higher CBD content, others have higher THC content and also due to the extraction process.

Which compounds are extracted from the cannabis plant to make oil?

As with anything in life, the cannabis plant is made up of different compounds, much like a human is made up of blood, bones, organs, then there are our other parts, the chemicals and hormones. Cannabis plants have the stems, leaves, buds, but then they also have their chemical parts too, the phytochemicals, the main ones are:

  1. CBD
  2. THC
  3. Terpenes
  4. Flavonoids
  5. Essential oils

This will blow your mind, within the human body there is an endocannabinoid system, a system of receptors and transmitters which has perfectly evolved to accommodate cannabinoids (or the phytochemicals). Mad, ey?

To get the best effect from your CBD oil, it’s worth choosing an oil that has as many cannabinoids in as possible because this creates an entourage effect, which means the chemicals work together to bring out each other’s benefits more so than if one chemical was isolated. It’s kind of like, “Teamwork to make the dream work”.

What is full spectrum CBD?

Full spectrum CBD oil includes all the phytochemicals and can have small traces of THC (less than 0.2%).

What is broad spectrum CBD?

The best you can buy on shelves in the UK. Broad-spectrum CBD oil, which is what our sport range is, has all the phytochemicals in, apart from the THC. This makes it totally legal in the UK and means there’s no chance of you getting high or feeling psychoactive effects.
