A Comprehensive Guide To Full Spectrum CBD Oil: Australia Edition


Cannabidiol (CBD) oil continues to surge in popularity worldwide, including in Australia. The hype is for good reason: CBD oils have been shown to have many potential health, wellbeing and lifestyle benefits.

Among the various types of CBD oil available, full spectrum CBD oil has gained attention for its potential holistic benefits.

In our comprehensive guide, we’ll help answer some of your common questions: What is full spectrum CBD oil? How may it enhance your wellbeing? And when you’re contemplating the options for full spectrum CBD oil Australia has to offer, how do you know which products to choose?

Understanding Full Spectrum CBD Oil

Choosing a CBD oil can be a bit overwhelming! So we’ll start by explaining what “full spectrum” actually means.

There are three main types of CBD oils available: full spectrum; broad spectrum; and isolate.

Full spectrum CBD oil comes from the hemp plant and contains a rich blend of beneficial chemical components including cannabinoids, terpenes and fatty acids. Full spectrum CBD oils usually contain a small amount of the naturally occurring THC (or tetrahydrocannabinol), but for non-prescription options in Australia this is less than the legal limit of <0.3% and non-psychoactive, meaning you won’t get the “high” that THC is known for.

Broad spectrum oil has been further refined to remove all THC, while CBD isolate is the most refined option, containing pure CBD.

As the name suggests, full spectrum oils offer a broader spectrum of wellness-enhancing components than isolate oils. We call this the “entourage effect”: the combined compounds work together to potentially magnify the oil’s therapeutic effects.

Health Benefits And Applications

The potential health benefits of full spectrum CBD oil is wide-ranging. While research is still evolving, many users report positive outcomes in pain management, stress and anxiety reduction, mood stabilisation, improved sleep quality and more.


Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most well-known cannabinoid. CBD interacts with our body’s endocannabinoid system – a regulatory network responsible for maintaining equilibrium (homeostasis) in various bodily functions. By nurturing this system, CBD may contribute to easing discomfort and helping with relaxation.

Cannabinol (CBN) is another cannabinoid with potential calming effects, often used to aid sleep-related concerns.


Aromatic compounds called terpenes contribute to the distinctive scent and potential benefits of full spectrum CBD oil. Terpenes like linalool and limonene are believed to offer stress relief and improved mood.
