For many readers out there, this may seem like a question with an obvious answer: no! Well, you’d only be partially correct. Full Spectrum and THC are both natural cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, and they have completely different chemical makeups. But just like THC concentrates often contain Full Spectrum, some Full Spectrum oils have trace amounts of THC.

This doesn’t mean the Full Spectrum oil you pick up at the store is going to get you high. Federal law requires Full Spectrum oil to contain less than 0.03% THC to be distributed commercially. So, there may be THC present in your oil, but not enough to get you stoned.

With all that being said, here are the labels to look out for when shopping for Full Spectrum oil so you know exactly how much THC, if any, you’re getting.

Full-Spectrum oil

A Full Spectrum oil, tincture or candy labeled “full-spectrum” simply means that there is a range of cannabinoids in the product, including THC. Again, it’s a small amount, but many believe the combination of Full Spectrum and THC has more dramatic affects than Full Spectrum on its own. It is also said to be successful at relieving anxiety and post-traumatic stress.


Broad-spectrum oils contain other cannabinoids, including terpenes and flavonoids, but no THC. These other compounds could help bring out stronger affects of the Full Spectrum, and you don’t have to worry about consuming any THC. Broad-spectrum oils can help with sleep, mood and more.

Isolate Full Spectrum

If you’re looking for Full Spectrum and nothing else, Full Spectrum isolate is what you’ll want to look for. It’s a great option if you’re new to Full Spectrum, or of course, if you need to avoid THC. Full Spectrum on its own does still interact with our endocannabinoid system, so an isolate will have effects on the body, just not as “heady” as full-spectrum options. Many use Full Spectrum isolate to treat pain, inflammation, and appetite.

Whether you’re looking for relief from physical ailments or mental stress, there’s Full Spectrum oil for you. Keep these terms in mind when shopping for Full Spectrum oil so you know you’re getting exactly what you need.
