CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD has been shown to have many health benefits. Recently, there has been an increased demand for full spectrum CBD products.
So, what does full spectrum mean? Simply put, full spectrum CBD still contains trace amounts of THC and different compounds. This differs from broad-spectrum CBD, which removes all THC.
This article discusses the different compounds found in full spectrum CBD and why they’re an important part of creating a balanced cannabinoid profile.
First, let’s start with cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in cannabis plants. This includes CBD itself, THC, CBD, CBC, and many other compounds.
Cannabinoids are important because they interact with various cannabinoid receptors in your body.
Terpenes are the different compounds responsible for several of the different fragrances and flavors associated with cannabis plants. There are hundreds of known terpenes found in cannabis, several of which are believed to have potential beneficial effects.
Some of the most common ones include:
· Linalool: A terpene found in lavender and other flowers.
· Beta-pinene: A terpene with a woody, pine smell.
· Beta-caryophyllene: A terpene found in cloves, hops, and rosemary.
Flavonoids are naturally occurring compounds that are naturally found in cannabis and many other plants. Studies show that these natural substances are beneficial for our health. They are often used in various medicinal and pharmaceutical products and have various therapeutic effects.
The Entourage Effect
So, what does this mean for you? Why do full spectrum CBD products keep all these compounds?
Recent research suggests that the therapeutic effect of CBD is amplified when combined with the above-mentioned compounds. This strengthened effect is known as the entourage effect. When combined, each compound is believed to have its own effect and benefits.
The collaborative effect that each compound has on users can differ with each combination. That means that different combinations may even have different benefits, depending on the cannabis compounds.
It is important to remember that full-spectrum products still contain THC, the psychoactive compound that makes people feel ‘high.’ However, most of these products only contain up to 0.3% THC, a very low amount that is typically not strong enough to have a mind-altering effect.
Since these products are not isolating or pulling out as many compounds, full-spectrum CBD is often less processed and a more natural choice for CBD consumers.
