CBD 101: The Difference Between Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and Isolate CBD

Rosebud is a full spectrum, food grade CO2 extract. Our full spectrum oil is multi-use and safe to consume by mouth or use topically on skin. In a 2015 study, researchers found that, in comparison to CBD isolate, full spectrum CBD offers higher levels of relief. We believe that our customers should have access to whole plant medicine rather than an isolate, which is just the singular extracted compound.

Full Spectrum

Full spectrum refers to a vibrant and diverse cannabinoid profile, meaning it preserves all of the therapeutic cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that occur naturally in hemp.

Broad or Wide Spectrum

Broad or wide spectrum is hemp extract that preserves the naturally-occurring cannabinoids and terpenes in the hemp and cannabis plant, except for THC.

Isolate

Isolate is an extract that solely contains CBD. CBD isolate does not preserve other cannabinoids and terpenes found in the hemp and cannabis plant.
