What’s the difference between full spectrum CBD wax and broad-spectrum CBD wax?
Here at Sauce Warehouse, we’re often asked this question. The short answer is full spectrum wax contains THC, broad spectrum wax does not.
However, it is a bit more complex than that. The way these two different types of CBD wax are made is much different and this makes them two completely different products. Unfortunately, many consumers are completely unaware of this, and many CBD vendors are actively trying to take advantage of them and selling subpar (and fake) CBD wax concentrates.
In most cases, broad spectrum CBD wax is fake. That is to say, it isn’t real wax like the wax you would find in a regular cannabis dispensary. It hasn’t been extracted from hemp flower at all, which means the strain name being advertised on the packaging is just a description of the terpenes that have been added to the wax for flavoring. And what’s worse, these terpenes are often not even derived from cannabis or hemp at all, but they have been taken from various plants and mixed to imitate the aroma and flavor of popular cannabis strains. Yikes!
This fake wax is not wax at all. It is CBD isolate and/or CBD distillate that has been manipulated to mimic the consistency of real cannabis wax. Granted, there is nothing wrong with these types of concentrates. To be clear, we are simply against CBD companies marketing these products as if they were real extracts when in fact they are not. Aside from this, they are still great products that can be very useful for individuals who wish to avoid consuming THC. Whether it be to stay clean for drug tests or simply to avoid getting high, broad spectrum CBD wax certainly has its benefits and we offer many options here at Sauce Warehouse.
On the flip side, for those seeking a real cannabis wax experience, full spectrum CBD wax is the way to go. Now, some full spectrum CBD wax out there is also fake. Yeah, we know… there is no shortage of greedy CBD companies out there and it does get very annoying. Fake full spectrum wax is made using full spectrum CBD distillate instead of broad-spectrum CBD distillate. So, while it contains THC and a full spectrum cannabinoid profile it still contains a fake terpene profile, and it is not real wax.
Genuine full spectrum CBD wax that has been extracted from hemp flower directly contains the actual terpenes and cannabinoids present in the flower it was extracted from. This gives real CBD wax the natural flavor and potency found in the flower, which creates an experience far superior to the fake stuff. This is especially true for flavor. Cannabinoids can always be added to distillate to increase potency, but terpenes can never be assembled to create the exact flavor of a specific strain. Many would argue cannabinoids can’t be added to create the exact strain specific ratios either, so at the end of the day, just go with the real deal.
