What Is Full Spectrum CBD?
What Is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in the cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and hemp).
CBD and THC are two major compounds found in cannabis, and products that contain both of them are considered full spectrum.
While THC can produce a high at a sufficient dosage, CBD does not. This compound does, however, have relaxing, pain-relieving properties.
Three Types of CBD Extract
The three main types of CBD extract are CBD isolate, broad spectrum CBD, and full spectrum CBD. Let’s take a look at how these three types of extracts differ from one another:
CBD isolate products contain pure CBD extract. That means the extract only contains CBD and no minor cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, or THC.
There are three main ways to extract a CBD isolate—ethanol, butane, and CO2 extraction. If you plan on using products that contain a CBD isolate, always choose ones that use CO2 extraction, as it leads to purest, healthiest extracts.
Broad Spectrum CBD
Broad-spectrum CBD products contain all of the cannabis plant’s compounds, except for THC.
Broad spectrum products, such as our broad spectrum CBD gummies, contain CBD, minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that don’t cause psychoactive effects but can produce an array of benefits.
If you don’t want to take THC, broad spectrum CBD products are a great choice. And, if you’re unsure whether you should take CBD in isolate or broad spectrum form, check out our detailed comparison of CBD isolate vs broad spectrum CBD.
Full Spectrum CBD
Full-spectrum CBD products contain all compounds found in cannabis, including THC. This type of product is the best if you want to get the highly sought-after entourage effect (the beneficial effect of taking THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids together).
Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to get high in order to reap the benefits of taking THC and CBD together. Our full-spectrum CBD gummies contain microdoses of THC, so you won’t get high if you stick with the recommended dosage (one gummy) but will reap the many benefits of THC.
Full Spectrum CBD Effects
When it comes to full spectrum CBD, all compounds found in this extract interact with the endocannabinoid system at once, so you get the beneficial effects of CBD, THC, minor cannabinoids (such as CBG and CBN), terpenes, and flavonoids. All of these compounds provide unique benefits, and you get even more beneficial effects when taking them together.
Full Spectrum CBD Benefits
Full spectrum CBD benefits include inflammation reduction, pain alleviation, insomnia relief, and anxiety reduction. Let’s take a look at why you should opt for full spectrum CBD to treat these ailments:
Full Spectrum CBD for Inflammation
If you’re fighting acute inflammation or a chronic condition that causes inflammation, full spectrum CBD is your best bet.
Anti-inflammatory properties are one of the many benefits of microdosing THC, and CBD has also been shown to reduce inflammatory processes in the body, according to a recent study.
By taking full spectrum edibles, such as our Delta 9 THC gummies with CBD, you’ll reap the incredible anti-inflammatory properties of both of these compounds.
Full Spectrum CBD for Sleep
CBD promotes sleep at all doses, and THC does so at lower doses. While high doses of THC tend to wake you up, very low doses of THC appear to promote healthy sleep, especially when you combine it with CBD and other relaxing cannabinoids.
With this in mind, we created edibles that combine the beneficial effects of CBD and THC on sleep. Our full-spectrum sleep gummies contain CBD, THC, and melatonin—a triple threat to any sleep issue.
Full Spectrum CBD for Anxiety
When combined with CBD, small doses of THC can lead to reduced stress levels and make you feel more relaxed. Just make sure not to overdo it on THC, as taking too much THC can exacerbate your anxiety levels, especially if you’re already prone to feeling anxious.
A 2017 study examined the effects of CBD and THC on anxiety, with some interesting results. In people with generalized anxiety disorder, CBD seems to alleviate anxiety at all doses. However, THC seems to lower anxiety in microdoses, while exacerbating it when taken in higher doses.
Our gummies with THC contain low doses of this compound, as well as CBD. If you stick to the recommended dosage (one gummy), the dose of THC you take will be just enough to relax you and alleviate your anxiety.
Full Spectrum CBD for Pain
Full spectrum CBD is your best option if you’re taking CBD for pain. Both CBD and low doses of THC were shown to alleviate pain, and taking them together will ensure you get the pain-relieving properties of both.
Our edibles with Delta 9 THC contain low doses of THC and CBD, as well as minor compounds found in full spectrum CBD, the perfect combo for pain relief.
Full Spectrum CBD Side Effects
There are no long-term side effects of taking full spectrum CBD. Full spectrum products typically contain low doses of THC, so you should not experience short-term side effects of THC—such as cotton mouth, paranoia, and anxiety—if you stick to the recommended dosage.
Our full spectrum gummies contain just enough THC for you to get the benefits of this compound without experiencing any side effects.
Is Full Spectrum CBD Legal?
- they are made from a hemp plant extract
- they contain no more than 0.3% of THC by dry weight
All nama products, including our full spectrum CBD edibles, are made in compliance with these two conditions, and are thus federally legal in the US.
Full-Spectrum vs Broad-Spectrum CBD
The main difference between full spectrum vs broad spectrum CBD extract is that the first contains THC, while the latter doesn’t. Therefore, you could get high by taking a sufficient dosage of full spectrum CBD, while the broad spectrum variety won’t get you high, no matter how much you take.
Since taking CBD and THC together provides an abundance of benefits, full spectrum CBD products will get you a better bang for your buck than broad spectrum ones.
If you’re a cannabis newbie and are feeling nervous about the effects of THC, we recommend starting with broad spectrum products. Once you get used to the calming effects of broad spectrum CBD, switch to a full spectrum product. Of course, start with a low dose and work your way up.

FAQ on Full Spectrum CBD
Does full spectrum CBD do anything?
Yes, full spectrum CBD provides a load of healthful benefits. Full spectrum cannabis extracts were shown to reduce anxiety, improve overall mood, help with sleep, and alleviate pain and inflammation.
Does full spectrum CBD show up in a drug test?
Yes, full spectrum CBD does show up on a drug test that tests for the presence of THC, as full spectrum CBD contains THC as well. If you know you’re getting drug testing done soon, refrain from taking any cannabis products, including full spectrum CBD products, for about a month beforehand.
How do you feel after taking full-spectrum CBD oil?
A full-spectrum CBD oil is a CBD and THC oil, so you can expect to feel the effects of both compounds after taking hemp CBD oil products of full spectrum variety.
Generally, hemp oil with full spectrum CBD will make you feel relaxed, calm, and alleviate your overall mood. If you take full spectrum products specifically formulated for sleep, such as our THC and CBD gummies for sleep, they will also aid in any sleep issues you may be having.
How long does it take for you to feel full spectrum CBD oil?
It takes around 30 minutes to an hour for you to feel the effects of full-spectrum CBD oil, tincture, gummy, or any other product that’s typically used orally. The carrier oil (usually MCT oil or some sort of seed oil) that carries cannabinoid compounds takes about half an hour to start absorbing through your stomach and intestines.
How long does CBD full spectrum stay in your system?
One full spectrum CBD gummy will stay in your system for about 80 hours. If you take CBD regularly, it will accumulate in your body and stay in your system for longer once you stop taking it. However, no matter how often you take full spectrum CBD products, the CBD should clear from your system completely in about a month.
Is full spectrum CBD or broad spectrum CBD better for anxiety?
Full-spectrum CBD is better for anxiety than broad-spectrum CBD. A low dose of THC has an incredibly beneficial effect on anxiety when you take it with CBD and other relaxing cannabinoids (such as CBN, CBG, and terpenes), which are all found in full spectrum CBD products.
We offer both full spectrum and broad-spectrum vegan CBD gummies. If you’re looking for the perfect full spectrum gummy to alleviate your anxiety, we recommend our Relax plus gummies, which contain 25 mg of CBD and 5 mg of THC per serving.
