Full-spectrum cannabis extracts are also called whole plant extracts and are meant to include the full plant profile of cannabinoids, terpenes, aroma, and flavor. If a strain currently has a ratio of THC to myrcene of 20% to .5%, then the ratio of the full-spectrum extract should remain the same at a 40:1 ratio, increased about four times as an extract is much stronger than flower. A full-spectrum extract with this strain should be about 80% THC to 2% myrcene.

Full-spectrum extracts can be difficult to create and retain original plant ratios while removing unwanted components such as lipids. Different methods are used, such as hydrocarbon extraction, which uses butane or a butane/propane blend, supercritical CO2 extraction, and extracting with pressure. All of these methods are used to create full-spectrum extracts. Some live resin cartridges may claim to be full-spectrum although the only way to know for sure is to check the lab results as many cartridges are actually created with distillate, and just a small portion of life resin or terpenes is added back in, which sacrifices the entourage effect of actual full-spectrum extracts.
