Full Spectrum refers to the complete suite of beneficial compounds, terpenes, phytocannabinoids and flavonoids present in the whole hemp plant. You’ve probably heard of the Entourage Effect, which basically states that the synergistic relationship of all parts of the whole plant extract is more beneficial and effective than the individual parts. Full spectrum hemp oil takes full advantage of the entourage effect and is scientifically proven to be more effective than CBD isolate products. The Full Spectrum includes all naturally occurring phytocannabinoids of which there are hundreds but only about 12 that have been fully identified and are quantifiable. Some of these include but are not limited to: Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA), Cannabinol, Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA), Cannabichromene (CBC) as well as Tetrahydrocannabinol(THC), Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCA) and Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV).
We use certified Organic whole plant hemp from a nearby farm. We soak the hemp in cold ethanol briefly, this pulls out the beneficial parts of the plant while leaving behind most of the undesirables such as chlorophyll and waxes. The “wash” is then placed into our rotary evaporator that will separate the ethanol from the Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, otherwise known as Crude Oil. Our Full Spectrum Hemp Oil consistently tests at or around 80% cannabinoid content.
Isolate is exactly what it sounds like, it is a chemically isolated compound, CBD, that is 99%+ pure and has no THC. Many companies are marketing these products as “THC free”. There are two main issues that we have with this. First, isolate products don’t allow for the “entourage effect” meaning that you are only getting the singular benefits from CBD and none of the other hundreds of compounds found in Full Spectrum Hemp Oil. Many people report that isolate can be effective, but doesn’t last as long and that higher doses are needed to treat the same ailments. Secondly, petroleum based solvents such as pentane and hexane are used in the isolation process to separate the CBD from everything else. We are not fans of these products and therefore choose to only let our hemp be touched by food grade ethanol. With that being said, THC free isolate products may be the only option for people who get drug tested regularly or could potentially lose their job due to drug screen failure.The use of Full Spectrum Hemp Oil allows for what is known as the ‘Entourage Effect’. The ‘Entourage Effect’ is the belief that the full array of phytocannabinoids and terpenes when together, work synergistically to provide more pronounced beneficial effects than just one isolated compound. Those seeking relief may miss out on that very effect if only CBD isolate is administered. By formulating products that use Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, the entangled phytocannabinoids and terpenes can interact with the naturally occurring endocannabinoid system found in humans and animals.
CBD stands for Cannabidiol and is just one of over 150 cannabinoids found in cannabis. Of these 150 or so compounds there has only been ten or so that have been detected and studied. The other well known counterpart to CBD is THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol? Cannabis with THC in concentrations higher than 0.3% is considered Marijuana by Federal law. Cannabis with concentrations lower than 0.3% is considered agricultural or industrial Hemp. Usually, a low concentration of THC means a high concentration of CBD up to about 18-20+% in the best cases.Unlike THC, CBD is non intoxicating. This means that products derived from agricultural hemp will not get you high. There are however a very small percentage of people with a hyper sensitivity that may feel some of the effects from the residual THC found in full spectrum products.
Both plants are considered cannabis however marijuana is any cannabis plant with more than 0.3% THC according to the federal government. Hemp is any cannabis plant with 0.3% THC or less.
No, while hemp does have trace amounts of THC it is not enough to become intoxicated. CBD and other cannabinoids found in hemp are non intoxicating.
