The purpose of this post will be to clearly define and give clarification on the subject of full spectrum CBD oil without overwhelming you with too many details. After reading this post you will gain a better understanding of the following:
- What Is A Full Spectrum CBD Oil
- Why You Would Want To Purchase CBD Oil
- What Are The Pros And Cons To Using Full Spectrum CBD Oil
- Buyer Beware – Here Is Where To Be Concerned
What Exactly Is A Full Spectrum CBD Oil
A Full Spectrum CBD Oil is comprised of more then just CBD Oil. Included with the CBD oil are other ingredients that will include additional cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes and slight level of THC. Now, don’t get confused with THC being included. Most people may be concerned with having THC as a part of the formula. A high quality full spectrum CBD Oil will contain 0.3% THC or less. More on this coming up below.
The reason these are all included is based on a very interesting concept known as “The Entourage Effect”. Simply stated the CBD oil is much more effective in the body when it is combined with other cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes that are part of the more natural form. These help to maximize the potential of the CBD oil and full spectrum oils are the most effective to achieve the desired results. In short they all work synergistically with each other.
There are numerous cannabinoids that are part of the cannabis plant. If you are purchasing CBD oil it will most likely be hemp derived and not from marijuana. Hemp is the industrial cousin of marijuana and has very scarce levels of THC. It can be used for things such as cordage, ropes, paper, food and even medicinal purposes. The level of THC in the full spectrum cbd oil are far too low to get high. You can read more about hemp here.
Why Would You Purchase Full Spectrum CBD Oil
Full spectrum cbd oil allows for optimal absorption and effectiveness within the body. All the natural cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids along with CBD oil maximize its potential utilizing the entourage effect. If you are seeking the best potential benefit from CBD oil you should seek out full spectrum.
Think of it like a good marinara sauce. It is comprised mostly of tomato sauce but would you prefer just the tomato sauce or the garlic, oregano, basil (lots of basil – in my opinion). Which is most pleasing to the pallet? A simple explanation (not the scientific type) but hopefully that helps put it in a little different perspective.
Pros and Cons of Full Spectrum CBD Oil
Now that we have learned more about full spectrum CBD oil, what are the pros and cons? Most may definitely seek to utilize full spectrum for the maximized potential of CBD but it may not be for everyone.
- Full Spectrum contains extra cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that maximize the potential of CBD oil
- Normally the most common and best sellers
- Does contain THC (very low levels 0.3% or less)
- THC levels are not at the threshold to get you high but those who may have employers with extremely strict drug testing may wish to opt for an isolate (THC free).
Regular full spectrum cbd oil users often never have any issues with drug testing. It depends on the amount of use and the quality of your CBD oil (more on this in a moment). If you want to get some extra insight on drug testing and CBD oil I suggest you read the following.
Full Spectrum CBD Oils are great and it is my personal choice. It has worked extremely well for me, but I also know others who may opt for a THC free isolate version. Those who use the isolate still get results (the options are available based upon your individual need). I have done both and the isolate may take a little longer to get the effect. You should always choose the one that you think is best for you.
Buyer Beware – Here Is Where You Need To Be Concerned
The biggest area of concerns should be:
1). The quality of the CBD oil your are purchasing
2). Reputation of the manufacturer
3) Where the hemp for the CBD is sourced
These are all important because unfortunately it can be the wild west as it relates to CBD Oil. There are some really good companies in the mix but also some mediocre ones too. You will want to find companies that utilize hemp grown organically within the United States. Also, these companies should utilize independent 3rd party lab testing.
The lab testing is crucial since it verifies all the level of CBD, THC and other ingredients. Sometimes what you may purchase may not have the levels that are on the bottle. You can be throwing your money away essentially.
Additionally, even a THC Free Isolate from non reputable manufacturer may actually contain THC. Bottom line is that if its really cheap, you are getting a very low quality product most likely sourced from areas with limited quality control. You can learn more by reading below.
Below are some buyers guides that can give you some additional guidance
If you are seeking to get the best out of CBD oil, look no further than Full Spectrum CBD Oil. It simply provides more of the natural components and cannabinoids to optimize CBD oil in your body. The extra components all compliment themselves in order to achieve the “entourage effect”.
Pay close attention to where the products are sourced and manufactured. Many cheap produce utilize hemp from questionable countries that have substandard farming practices. Otherwise you risk having heavy metals, synthetic pesticides & fertilizers enter your body. Bottom line choose a good product from reputable manufacturer (yes there are some really good ones out there).
