CBD is extracted into oil from the aerial flower parts, stalks, and stems on the cannabis plant.
Full Spectrum, whole plant, products contain all naturally occuring compounds including THC. THese products provide the entourage effect. The Entourage Effect is the synergy of pharmacological effects that occur through the interaction of cannabinoids, terpinoids, and other compounds found in the cannabis plant.

These also include products that were initially isolates with other compounds added back in. Isolate products are exactly that. The cannabidiol has been isolated from all other compounds to provide a pure CBD product.
There are now also terpene isolates that you can add to cbd products to enahnce and customize the pharmacological effect of your initial product.
