Final Thoughts: CBD Oil Spectrums
There are many factors that can point you in the direction of one cannabis spectrum instead of the other.
Your unique body chemistry, your weight, lifestyle, as well as your history with other substances — each of these factors can influence the way you react to different cannabinoid profiles.
For some, broad-spectrum CBD may be the best choice as id delivers some entourage effect without the psychoactive effects of THC. For others, a high dose of pure CBD may be enough to alleviate their symptoms and others will need more THC to feel the difference.
There’s still much research to be done to gauge the effectiveness of each spectrum, so the best thing you can do for now is a little trial and error to figure out which option you prefer.
