Broad-spectrum CBD products contain all of the cannabis compounds besides THC, placing these products somewhere between full-spectrum products and isolates. While all of the organic plant matter is processed, the THC molecules are isolated and thoroughly excluded. Those who use broad-spectrum products are still able to experience the benefits from the entourage effect because all of the other cannabinoids and terpenes besides THC remain in the product.
If you’re nervous about your upcoming drug test, opt for broad-spectrum CBD instead of full-spectrum.

Cannabis science is one of the fastest moving frontiers medicinal sciences in the world. The pharmacology behind it has been accelerated by the realization that we’re all already marinated in cannabis-like molecules (endocannabinoids) and their receptors.
Endocannabinoids help regulate many physiological processes such as your mood, memory, appetite, pain, immune function, metabolism, and bone growth to name a few. Consuming cannabis also modulates this endocannabinoid system in many ways. The effects can be benevolent, although sometimes problematic.
Understanding the science behind cannabis is a key factor in being able to fully enjoy its medicinal value.
People have been using cannabis as medicine for thousands of years. The plant has also been widely used clothing, fuel, food, fiber, and medicine.
Cannabis contains more than 120 different cannabinoid molecules. But, as far as we know, only one gets you high: THC. The plant itself contains a huge amount of cerebral, non-intoxicating THC cousins with emerging medicinal potential. Their abbreviated names are often: CBD, CBG, THC-V, CBC, and CBN to mention a few.
