Full Spectrum CBD has the most natural occurring Terpenes because you're getting the full properties from the hemp plant. However, additional Terpenes are added to enhance the flavor and the users experience based on the product. It is important to note that certain CBD products like our Active Full Spectrum CBD Pen contain caffeine.
