CBD oil is CBD extracted into a medium, in our case MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil or more specifically coconut oil. CBD oil comes in several forms: isolate, broad-spectrum, and full spectrum. Isolate is CBD isolated from all other cannabinoids contained in the hemp, this would be considered pure CBD. Broad-spectrum CBD is a range of cannabinoids along with the CBD; usually just remove the THC from the spectrum for people who need to avoid all THC. Full-spectrum CBD is the complete cannabinoid spectrum; this includes THC, but in order for hemp CBD to be legal THC has to be below 0.3%.
