Unearthing our extracts: full spectrum CBD vs broad spectrum vs isolate
At CBII, we know that CBD is a hero ingredient with a hybrid of benefits.
Just like CBD is multi-faceted and multi-benefit, we know that each and every one of our customers is just as different, has a different reason to take CBD and a different preference. That's why we've crafted different formats of CBD to suit you.
Compare the differences between our extracts and discover which may be best for you.

We use two extraction methods to extract our full spectrum (ethanol) and broad spectrum (CO2 extraction);
What is Full spectrum CBD?
Full spectrum is a whole plant extract, meaning it contains all the powerful cannabinoids found naturally in the hemp plant, in addition to cannabidiol (CBD), such as the terpenes, phytocannabinoids and flavonoids that result in a highquality oil that’s closer to the natural plant.
Our core range contain our exclusive and award-winning LINNEA315CSETM full spectrum extract, extracted in Switzerland and bottled in the UK.
Why choose full spectrum? The entourage effect
Preliminary research indicates that major cannabinoids such as CBD and minor cannabinoids like CBG and CBN work together to promote the best whole-plant benefits known as the ‘entourage effect’.
What is Broad spectrum CBD?
Broad-spectrum CBD contains several cannabis plant compounds, but it is entirely free of THC; meaning it doesn’t have the herbal taste of full spectrum oils.
What is CBD Isolate?
CBD isolate is the most pure form of CBD and contains no other cannabis plant compounds except for CBD itself - no THC or additional cannabinoids.
