What is full spectrum CBD?
If you have heard of CBD than you have probably heard the term Full Spectrum CBD too.
With the gaining popularity of CBD it is important that you know all the differences and where people can try to scam you.
First, you need to know that all CBD oils are extracted from the cannabis flower. The cannabis flower is full of cannabinoids (CBD, THC, CBC, etc...) that work with your endocannabinoid system to regulate a broad range of physiological processes that affect our everyday experience – our mood, our energy level, our intestinal fortitude, immune activity, blood pressure, bone density, glucose metabolism, how we experience pain, stress, hunger, and more.
That looks like a complicated diagram, but lets start with what Isolate CBD is...
The top left corner shows the cannabinoid CBD and a few of the many benefits from it. Isolate is what it sounds like. There is a process of isolating only the CBD from the cannabis plant to create isolate CBD for someone wanting to try only CBD and its benefits.
Then there is FULL SPECTRUM CBD
When a Cannabis plant is harvested in states that marijuana is illegal, it must be tested for the amount of THC content in each flower. The legal amount is less than 0.3% THC and most of the time this is the amount of THC in Full Spectrum CBD Oil. Then all the other naturally occurring compounds are also in Full Spectrum Oil including all cannabinoids, essential oils, and terpenes.
THC adds benefits that could help with things like anxiety, more pain and inflammation relief, and even seizures and cancer.
Be careful though.
Some businesses won't tell you about the fact that that small legal amount of THC can still show up on a drug test, so make sure that is taken into account before purchasing Full Spectrum CBD Oil.
If it could be a problem for you,
or you just don't like the idea of any THC, there is also BROAD SPECTRUM CBD Oil. This is like Full Spectrum CBD with no THC. It includes the mix of other cannabinoids extracted from the cannabis flower like CBC, CBG and CBN.
So now that you have a better understanding of the very different CBD Oils, you can buy the best one for you!
