Full spectrum vs Broad Spectrum vs Pure CBD

Ultimate CBD Product Effectiveness Infographic & CBD Consumer Product Safety Guide


By educating CBD customers to better understand the difference between Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and Pure CBD, they can avoid purchasing mislabeled and directly, fake CBD products.


In an industry where laws are unclear and very little education (which we’re changing dramatically),  I wanted to take the time to create this complete overview of the difference between Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and Pure CBD products.

What you’ll find on this page is one of many of our ongoing, continuous offerings of guidance and educational CBD content aimed towards protecting CBD consumers & buyers worldwide.  If you don’t want to read from A-Z, please use the links below to jump to the section that interests you most.

The People Who Will Benefit Most

This page was created SPECIFICALLY for all types of CBD buyers.  This includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Retail CBD Buyers – the everyday shopper (non-professional)
  • CBD Wholesalers – business owners who buy at wholesale CBD prices and sell at retail prices

In my humble opinion, what you will find below is perhaps, with emphasis on perhaps, the most direct, unbiased infographic chart the CBD industry has seen to date.

I say “direct” and “unbiased” because this article brings the facts & NOT opinions and you won’t find any product promotion here (not in this article at least).


By finally curating and offering this much-needed information to the public, consumers worldwide now have a tool to “call out” the companies and products that are taking advantage of people’s wellbeing.

People vote with their dollar, and by educating consumers, we can help make the “wild wild west” CBD industry safer for all. 


CBD offers unknown wellness potential and I’m beyond tired of hearing stories from either business owners being scammed by CBD brokers/manufactures and even more so from the people who are dealing with debilitating health issues. 

There are people and companies claiming full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and/or pure CBD that aren’t even putting CBD in the products at all! 

Instead, they are infusing their products with synthetic versions, melatonin, K2, and Kratom spiked CBD products.

It’s sickening.

This has got to change and with that said, without further adieu, below is your new CBD buying defense tool and infographic!

My intention with the creation of this article was to offer one of, if not THE most direct, comprehensive, and informative article explaining the difference between the three types of CBD products (Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and Pure CBD) for the people that need it most, the consumers.

With that said, this CBD infographic/chart can absolutely be used by CBD business owners that need factual guidance on how to tell if a salesman working for any particular brand is telling the truth about their product.

This information is extremely important to know because on average, 7 out of 10 first-time CBD buyers will end up overpaying or scammed on a product labeled “full-spectrum” when in reality, it’s a Broad Spectrum product. 

Knowing how to properly examine a COA for cannabinoids that need to be detected in order to qualify to be a TRUE Full Spectrum CBD oil is vital knowledge. 

If you found this chart worthy of sharing, PLEASE DO! 

Let’s spark a movement of knowledge and begin removing the “weeds”.

Healthy Regards,

Christopher Visser
