    People often ask about the difference between Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil. At the moment, there isn't an industry standard definition for each. Some use the term Full Spectrum to describe hemp oil that has a full spectrum of cannabinoids, including trace amounts of THC. Even if there is less than .03%, some would call this a full spectrum. Some use the term Broad Spectrum in reference to hemp oil wherein 100% of the THC has been removed.

As therapists hone their skills and become more strategic in their session strategies, the positive results are manifold.
