There are three main types of Full Spectrum Hemp Oil in the market and knowing exactly what they are and what to look for will greatly help out. Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum and Isolate are those main three types.
In order for CBD to be Full Spectrum by definition it must have "some" THC content. The Farm Bill made it legal for CBD to have up to 0.3% THC. Any Full Spectrum Hemp Oil that you see on the market that claims to be Full Spectrum and doesn't have "some" THC... is simply not telling the truth.
There is another classification called Broad Spectrum. Essentially, this means that they have removed THC completely, but there are still trace amounts of other cannabinoids like CBG, CBN, CBC or CBDV and so on.
The last classification is an Isolate. That means that only a cannabidiol is present and has 0% THC (aka absolutely no THC whatsoever).
Pure Midwest believes in Full Spectrum Hemp Oil because of the entourage effect that you receive from the other cannabidiols and terpenes that are present. There is scientific research out there to suggest that this isn't just a thought.. but a truth.
When looking at Full Spectrum... we also urge you to take a look at how the oil was created. Is it just a Full Spectrum profile... or is is a whole plant "true full spectrum". Aka.. did they manufacture the spectrum or is it more naturally present? Lot's of conversations out there indicate that a true whole plant extraction will be much more beneficial than an engineered full spectrum profile.
