Full Spectrum CBD Oil
Full-spectrum means that an oil or product contains all the cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant in nature, rather than just CBD (Cannabidiol). These products are associated with the “entourage effect” – this refers to the increased effectiveness of these products due to the different cannabinoids working synergistically. Full-spectrum products can be more effective than products that are CBD isolate derived. Products that are isolate derived will only contain the isolated CBD molecule.
So, what else are you getting with a full spectrum product besides CBD? The short answer is you are getting more than 100 different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. CBD and THC are the most abundant cannabinoids in cannabis, but there are several minor cannabinoids that can play an important role in the effectiveness of a CBD product. Here is a list of their names and the role studies suggest they play in the human body.
CBD is the most abundant compound in the hemp plant. Unlike THC, CBD will not give the user a “high” feeling that the cannabis plant has been traditionally known for. Used by consumers to promote a healthy functioning system. Some people report it has a relaxing/calming effect, while others may feel more energized.
THC is the second most common cannabinoid in the hemp plant. It is also the most desired compound in hemp’s sister plant, marijuana. THC is the compound in the cannabis plant that makes the user feel “high”. Legally, the distinction between hemp and marijuana is the THC content of the plant. While full spectrum CBD products will contain a trace amount of THC, levels will always be below the 0.2% mark. In such small amounts, consumers using CBD products will not feel the psychoactive effects of the THC, it is only present to help increase the entourage effect.
CBG is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid just like CBD. It’s actually the parent compound of THC and CBD and acts as a precursor to the three main cannabinoid lines: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA). Enzymes in the cannabis plant will break down CBG and convert it to one of these final compounds.
CBN is a minor cannabinoid that is being studied for its sedative effects. The compound in cannabis that generates a relaxed feeling in the user is in fact Cannabinol.
Cannabichromene (CBC), is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant and is, therefore, a phytocannabinoid. It bears structural similarity to the other natural cannabinoids, including THC, THCV, CBD, CBN, among others. CBC and its derivatives are as abundant as cannabinoids in cannabis.
