A Full Spectrum CBD Oil will contain all of the essential oils, terpenes, and cannabinoids contained within the hemp plant.
Individually, these substances all have their own benefits, but when taken together they are believed to create something called the Entourage Effect.
Especially associated with Broad and Full Spectrum CBD oils, the Entourage Effect is when different cannabinoids work together in synergy.
It’s believed that the cannabinoids in a Full Spectrum CBD oil such as CBDa and CBG will enhance each other’s benefits, creating an effect that can be more significant that any of the active ingredients can create on their own.
Less processed than Broad Spectrum CBD or CBD Isolate, Full Spectrum CBD contains more of the natural compounds of the hemp plant. You can expect to find the following substances in our Platinum CBD Oil:
Because Full Spectrum CBD Oil is not as processed as other cannabis oils, more of the natural compounds of the hemp plant are retained in the resulting CBD oil. Over 100 cannabinoids are contained in the cannabis plant, and many of these will be found in Full Spectrum oil. Compounds such as CBD, CBDa, and CBG are what are believed to give CBD oil its therapeutic effects.
There are over 150 terpenes contained in the flowers and buds of the cannabis plant. These natural compounds generally affect the plant’s fragrance. Limonene, for example, gives citrus plants their fresh fragrance, whilst Linalool is responsible for lavender’s relaxing scent.
These are present in all kinds of fruits and vegetables, where they are believed protect against inflammation and to be great antioxidants. The cannabis plant has around 20 different flavonoids.
Although it’s easy for people to believe that CBD and marijuana are the same thing, they are actually very different products.
Unlike marijuana, CBD is made from hemp and has no psychoactive properties.
There are two main species of Cannabis; Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa. Whilst marijuana can be extracted from both of these species, hemp can only be extracted from Cannabis Sativa.
This means that there are some notable differences between hemp and marijuana. The most important of these is that hemp contains almost no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is the chemical found in marijuana which makes you feel high.
To be legally considered hemp, it must contain no more than 0.3% THC. If you are taking Full or Broad Spectrum CBD products it’s normal for it to contain trace amounts of THC, but nowhere near the levels which will become psychoactive. If you are taking CBD Isolate, it will contain no THC at all.
Made from organically grown and refined ingredients, this Platinum CBD Oil is suspended in a base of hemp seed oil which has its own associated benefits.
A rich source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the cannabis plant.
A highly nutritious oil, it’s believed to be particularly beneficial for skin health, and its high concentration of alpha-linolenic acid is thought to help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
