If you are a cannabinoid enthusiast, you have probably heard of or had a select spectrum product. But odds are, you do not know what it is and where you can pick it up at will. We will be covering all of these and more in this article. Let’s get started!
Select Spectrum is defined as: A product that uses specific cannabinoids extracted from hemp in a specific balance to achieve a specific outcome. These products usually have 10mg of Delta 9 THC and 10mg of CBD to achieve the desired effect.
How Select Spectrum is made:
If you are like us, it is not enough to know what a product is. You also want to know what goes into making it is equally as important. To begin, know that our product contains only cannabinoids derived naturally. To do this, CO2 is blasted at hemp at high pressures and low temperatures.
The final step is an extraction process where the specific blend of cannabinoids from hemp is extracted and saved. After this, the gummy-making process begins, where the desired flavor are infused and the previously extracted select cannabinoid.
By referring to a product as a select spectrum, it means the product contains more than one prominent cannabinoid element and it has a blend of prominent cannabinoid elements. These elements refer to CBD, Delta-9 THC, and other cannabinoids found in hemp.
Why Select Spectrum? What makes it different than regular products?
A simple answer to this is the “entourage effect”. By combining CBD and Delta 9 THC, we are bringing together their respective effects and combining them. This produces a stronger and more effective response in the body termed as “entourage effect”.
But with all hemp and cannabinoid products, it is important to remember that everyone reacts differently. The entourage effect will feel different for everyone. However, you can expect to experience a psychoactive effect because of the Delta THC contained within the product.
A great rule we advise everyone to follow before trying any new cannabinoid product is to start small. By beginning this way, you can monitor your reaction and slowly work up your way to your optimal dose.

Select Spectrum THC: A Complete Fact File
Select Spectrum THC uses specific cannabinoids extracted from hemp in a specific balance to achieve a specific outcome. These products usually have 10mg of Delta 9 THC and 10mg of CBD along with other cannabinoids to achieve the desired effect.
But before we get into select spectrum THC, its legality, and what makes it unique, let’s begin by considering cannabinoids and the roles each one plays in the select spectrum.
Cannabinoids are natural compounds that are in both marijuana and hemp. And although those two species have been mixed up from time to time, it is important to note that they are completely different. For the sake of this article, we are going to be considering hemp.
Currently, there are at least 113 cannabinoids in these plants that scientists know of, with the most popular ones being:
- Cannabidiol (CBD)
- Delta-8 THC
- Delta-9 THC
Each one of these cannabinoids has an important role to play in the creation of special spectrum THC and we will be reviewing each one in more in-depth terms.
Also known as CBD, this is possibly the most popular cannabinoid in marijuana and hemp. In reality, it comes in second after Delta-9 THC as the most prominent cannabinoid found in marijuana. In 2018, the Federal government passed the 2018 farm bill which inadvertently makes CBD (upon extraction from hemp) legal as you might know.
However, you might not know that although it is not a form of THC it reacts with the endocannabinoid system of the body like THC meaning it causes the body to have a similar but more mellowed effect that Delta-8 or Delta-9 THC would have upon interaction. Of course, this reaction varies per person and we advise users to start with smaller quantities and work their way up.
CBD like THC comes in various categories and the important thing to note about each category is their different chemical compositions.
This refers to the type of CBD that contains multiple mixtures of cannabis extract without any THC. It is also sometimes referred to as ‘wide spectrum’ CBD.
Full Spectrum CBD:
Similar to the broad-spectrum CBD, it also contains numerous mixtures of various cannabis extracts and THC. Legally, the concentration of Delta 9 THC must be 0.3% or lower
This category of CBD is defined as a group of products that contain a composition of CBD of 99%. The CBD is isolated from other cannabinoids hence the name.
Probably the most popular THC variant, this compound is found in hemp and marijuana in varying amounts. Due to its prevalent presence in marijuana, it has continued to be associated with cannabis. Because of its nature, this compound can produce psychoactive effects so using it needs to be done under a controlled environment.
In addition to this, it is important to state that this compound is not completely illegal. According to a recently passed law, Delta-9 THC is legal federally and in many states including Texas if it meets the following conditions:
- It is extracted from Hemp
- It is found in a concentration greater than 0.3% on a dry weight basis.
The Legality of Select Spectrum
By now you should have a solid understanding of what Select Spectrum is, what it consists of and how companies make it. Before we round up, we want to address its legality.
Without a doubt, Select Spectrum products are legal federally and in numerous states including Texas because they are classified as products derived from hemp and not marijuana. This is because of the 2018 Farm bill where the definitions of marijuana and hemp came to be.
The cannabinoids found within the select spectrum products are derivatives of hemp and none of these products have a Delta-9 THC level over the 0.3% concentration limit. In case you are wondering how select spectrum can have 10mg Delta-9 THC and still be legal? The answer lies in the same bill. As long as the compound is extracted from Hemp at a 0.3% concentration on a dry weight basis, it is considered legal.
By meeting both criteria set by the federal and state governments, Select Spectrum products are compliant in the eyes of the law.
