NuLife CBD is now offering both Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum CBD oils. Here’s information to help you understand the difference between them.
NuLife Full Spectrum CBD Oil: Our full spectrum CBD oils are made using state of the art extraction technology. The aim of this process is to extract all of the beneficial phytocannabinoids. We start with the whole plant from our industrial, organically grown hemp farm in Colorado. Our proprietary technology extracts a wide spectrum of beneficial compounds. The end result is an extract that is rich not only in CBD, but also contains cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), natural terpenes, with less than 0.3% THC, which is the legal limit for over the counter products. While CBD has the most benefits of all the phytocannabinoids, there are positive attributes to most of these compounds.

A majority of the cannabinoid content is CBD, with the remaining split between CBG, CBN, CBC, CBDA, minor cannabinoids, and terpenes. Total terpenes account for between 1- 4% of the oil’s composition.
NuLife Broad Spectrum CBD Oil
Our broad spectrum oils are made from the same high quality hemp extracts used in our NuLife Full Spectrum products with the difference being in processing. NuLife incorporates the latest in distillation technology to separate out a significantly greater percentage of the total phytocannabinoid fraction from the raw full spectrum hemp extract. Broad spectrum distillate provides the end user with the highest cannabinoid potency, when compared to full spectrum oil. Full spectrum oil is simply the raw extract from the hemp plant. Broad spectrum oil goes through a distillation process, which removes all non-cannabinoid aspects from the oil. Broad spectrum distillate contains all the same cannabinoids as full spectrum oil except in higher overall amounts. The lower cannabinoid potency of full spectrum oils is due to the many other molecular components (400+) that dilute down these cannabinoid components, which include organic chemicals like terpenes, fatty acids, and chlorophyll for example. Experience the benefits of all the different cannabinoids (100+) working synergistically at maximum potency in all the NuLife Broad Spectrum products. It’s good to note that delta-9 THC is also considered a cannabinoid and is included in the broad spectrum products. This allows the end user the benefits of the THC at a potency of less than 0.3% , which is the legal limit, without the effects of the THC “high” that is experienced from the much higher THC potency of the marijuana plant, the counterpart to the hemp plant.
The majority of the broad spectrum oil is CBD, with increased potency over the full spectrum oils. Other phytocannabinoids in the broad spectrum oil include CBN, CBG, CBC, CBDA and less than 0.3% THC, and terpenes.
The extraction process is considered a means of removing or stripping most of the biologic compounds produced by the hemp plant. It not only removes the phytocannabinoids from the plant, it also pulls all of the other biochemical components produced by the hemp plant. What is left over when the plant is stripped of its essence is mostly dry, inactive, solid plant matter or biomass. Raw, or full spectrum, extracts contain the absolute essence of the hemp plant including terpenes, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, and other plant based molecules.
NuLife Broad Spectrum distillation removes everything from the extract except the phytocannabinoids, preserving the entourage effect. This unique process further increases the overall CBD potency as well by weight over full spectrum extracts. This purification step is evident by the drastic color change from a dark amber color to a bright, clear oil appearance.
Our process has been refined over the years to ensure quality and consistency. Beyond utilizing the latest technologies and equipment, we also follow rigorous quality control measures. We utilize a 3rd-party tester to evaluate finished products, ensuring accuracy in reported phytocannabinoid content and THC content.
Quite simply, Nulife is proud to produce the highest quality, 100% hemp derived, phytocannabinoid-rich oil available to the public. All of our hemp extracts are tested to be free of microbes, solvents, heavy metals and pesticides.
