What Does "Broad-Spectrum" Mean?

Broad-spectrum is a term used to describe cannabis extracts that fall in the middle of a full-spectrum and an isolate.

They’re made by isolating each cannabinoid — usually CBD, CBC, CBG, CBN, and THC.

These isolates are then mixed together in a proprietary ratio for the final product. This practice gives the final product what looks like full-spectrum levels of cannabinoids but is made manually. It allows manufacturers to maintain standardized ratios of each cannabinoid.

In basic terms, the cannabinoid profile is controlled by the manufacturer. It essentially contains only a broad range of cannabinoids naturally found in the plant.

Terpenes are also commonly added to broad-spectrum extracts to further mimic the natural levels of the cannabis plant.
