Hemp products fall into three categories or “strengths”: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate. While CBD-only isolates are targeted and effective, the general consensus is that full-spectrum and broad-spectrum (zero THC) are more effective for a wider range of physical needs. These products allow the full compliment of cannabinoids to work in tandem on the CB1 and CB2 receptors that regulate the body’s Endocannabinoid System. Translation? You get more bang for your buck.
Full-spectrum and broad-spectrum products create the so-called “entourage effect.” This refers to how cannabinoids work together to unlock neuroreceptor channels and encourage the body to self-regulate. Essentially each individual cannabinoid helps bring out the full potential of the other.
In a full-spectrum hemp extract, all parts of the plant’s chemistry are present in the oil. Every hemp plant is different and different companies value different chemistry, but as a rule, full-spectrum extracts include some percentage of the plant’s 100-plus cannabinoids. Think: CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, etc., and legally minuscule, non-psychoactive amounts of THC (less than 0.3%). High-quality extracts also include some of the plant’s terpenes, or flavor oils, which have their own effects and work in tandem with cannabinoids.
The exact content of full-spectrum hemp oil products varies widely. As always, make sure to identify where the oil is sourced and that it’s been third-party tested. Reputable brands post their certificate of analysis (COA), which delineate cannabinoid content.
We spoke with experts, read consumer reviews, and tried full-spectrum products ourselves. You can also find full-spectrum capsules, chewable tablets, and tinctures and nano-emulsions galore. But these are a few of our favorite products.

What Does Full-Spectrum Mean?
The entourage effect dramatically increases the healing effects of hemp. The scientific method tends to break down data into constituent parts, but in this case, nature proves that the sum is greater than the parts.
Dr. John S. Boccella, DC, co-owner of The Hemp Company says, “CBD and delta 9-THC are the powerhouse cannabinoids, but they are especially so if they have the full complement of the other cannabinoids working together to create the synergistic entourage effects. And since our body’s Endocannabinoid Systems are unique, different cannabinoids will have a greater therapeutic benefit for some compared to others." The entourage effect helps our body identify how best to utilize all of the various phytocannabinoids.
The bottom line? Full-spectrum hemp extract products help bring the body back to homeostasis, modulating how we account for stress. Supplementing with a daily dose of a full-spectrum hemp extract is like plugging in your stereo’s equalizer—it balances signals to create harmony. It's time to rock your best self!
