There are an abundance of CBD oils on the market these days. Finding the best product for your specific needs can be tricky if you don’t know exactly what you are looking for. So what are you looking for? If your answer is a quality broad-spectrum CBD oil, you have come to the right place. Here at Real Tested CBD, we do the footwork for you; testing CBD products to fact check label claims, purity and potency. Here is our list of top 10 broad-spectrum CBD oils, based on our independent lab test results and our expert CBD review scale.
What Is Broad-Spectrum CBD?
When it comes to shopping for a broad-spectrum CBD oil, or any CBD oil really, it’s helpful to first know some terminology. Broad-spectrum means that a CBD product contains the full spectrum of compounds from a hemp or CBD-grade cannabis plant, but with trace amount of THC removed. Full-spectrum is similar but typically leaves trace amounts of THC and all other cannabinoids. CBD isolates usually strip away other cannabinoids, leaving pure CBD. Broad-spectrum CBD oils are a great way to receive many of the potentially therapeutic benefits of hemp and cannabis plants without worrying about any THC or “high” factors.
