What is Full Spectrum CBD?

Full-spectrum CBD oil refers to pure hemp oil that has all the same cannabinoids that were present in the original hemp plant. There are hundreds of different cannabinoids present but some of the most recognisable as:

  • Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
  • Cannabigerol (CBG)
  • Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA)
  • Cannabichromene (CBC)
  • Cannabinol (CBN)
  • Cannabicyclol (CBL)

Each of these cannabinoids can be used separately for a whole range of therapeutic benefits, but with a full spectrum CBD oil, you get a little bit of them all. The three you are most likely to have seen are CBD, CBG and THC. 

However, it isn’t just the cannabinoids that make our CBD oil a valuable addition to your complete diet. When you purchase a full-spectrum CBD oil, it will use a hemp seed carrier oil. This hemp seed oil also contains many essential vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, fibre, protein, chlorophyll, flavonoids, and terpenes.

So Full-spectrum CBD oil refers to pure hemp oil that has all the same cannabinoids, also present in the original hemp plant. This providing a CBD oil supplement that allows the cannabinoids to work together in what is called the entourage effectHowever, it isn’t just the cannabinoids that make our CBD oil a valuable addition to your complete diet. The Hemp seed carrier oil also contains many essential vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, fibre, protein, chlorophyll, flavonoids, and terpenes.

The health benefits of full-spectrum CBD oil go beyond it being a source of CBD. The array of cannabinoids found in full-spectrum hemp oil have been shown in studies to work together. This is called the “entourage effect.” Together, these compounds work harmoniously to magnify their therapeutic properties. The mix of cannabinoids, essential nutrients, protein, and healthy fats work together to encourage balance in our health.

Many other CBD products are made up of CBD crystals or isolate. This means CBD has been extracted away from everything else.

The more you take out of the original plant the more processes the product have to go through.

Will Full Spectrum CBD Oil Make You High?

Even though full-spectrum CBD oil contains THC it will not make you high. THC is the only cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant that has the effect on your brain of making you high or stoned. 

Whilst THC is present in full-spectrum CBD oil it is in such a small amount that it would never be able to make you high. It is illegal in Europe and the UK to sell any CBD oil with a THC content higher than 0.2% and 0.3% in THC controlled states in the USA. 

Although the THC content is low enough to ensure that you don’t feel any psychoactive effects, it is still dosed highly enough to experience the therapeutic benefits from it. We’d call that a win-win.

What Are the Different CBD Oils and Products?

With so many providers out there, all offering CBD oil using fancy words promoting what they offer, it can be quite hard to figure out what to look for and what to buy. So here is a little CBD encyclopedia so you can make up your own mind:

CBD isolate is 99.9% pure CBD oil

During the CBD isolate extraction process, everything contained in the plant matter is removed, including any traces of THC, terpenes, waxes, oils, chlorophyll and more. What you’re left with is pure CBD…and nothing else.

Full Spectrum CBD oil

Full Spectrum CBD Oil on the other hand, contains everything the plant contains. Full-spectrum CBD is full of all the terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids.

Broad-spectrum CBD oil

This is a little bit of both. Broad-spectrum CBD is full-spectrum CBD without any THC.

PCR stands for phytocannabinoid rich

In this case, typically, using alcohol distillation, the most dominant phytocannabinoids (THC and CBD) and terpenes are separated. This process allows to produce extractions that are 0.0% THC and to preserve a partial set of terpenes from the original plant.

Cannabinoids

A Term used to refer to molecules that are found in the hemp plant and/or that interact with cannabinoid receptors.They can be classified
as phytocannabinoids, endocannabinoids, or synthetic cannabinoids.

Endocannabinoids

Chemicals produced by the body, that target cannabinoid receptors we all have in our bodies.

Synthetic cannabinoids

Cannabinoids produced in the laboratory to structurally or functionally mimic the
endocannabinoids or phytocannabinoids.

Phytocannabinoids

Over 113 naturally occurring chemicals/compounds found in the hemp plant.

CBD-Rich (sometimes referred to as “Enriched”) Extracts

Preparations from hemp plants that are higher in CBD than
plants bred historically for recreation.

Whole plant Medicine

This term is used to describe products utilizing the full spectrum of compounds hemp has to offer.

What Does CBD Oil Do?

CBD oil has been shown to have an enormous range of health benefits ranging from pain management and inflammation reduction for severe illnesses to helping people sleep better at night, through to improving skin conditions. We have only begun to scratch the surface of what CBD oil and CBD, in general, can do for us.

How Does CBD Oil Work?

The main reason CBD oil has these effects is the way that it reacts with your body’s very own endocannabinoid system (or ECS for short). Your ECS is largely responsible for the way that your body regulates several functions including your immune system, inflammation, sleep, hunger, pain and memory. 

When you suffer from certain illnesses or even stress, your body’s ECS, hormone and chemical levels can become unbalanced. Your body naturally strives towards a state of balance known as homeostasis. And when you consume or use cannabinoids like CBD oil, they can help your body to return to a state of natural homeostasis. 

Can I Fail A Drugs Test Taking Full Spectrum CBD Oil?

When you take a drugs test, the test is looking for levels of THC in your body. This is because, as mentioned above, THC is the only psychoactive cannabinoid. Drugs tests do not test for CBD. 

There are some stories out there on the internet from people claiming to fail drugs tests after taking full-spectrum CBD oils. However, these seem pretty far fetched, as most drugs testing companies do not check for levels of THC remotely near what is present in full-spectrum CBD oil. In fact, most testing companies explicitly state this in their testing policies.

If you are concerned about failing a drugs test however and want any additional piece of mind, there are always other CBD options available to you including CBD isolates and broad-spectrum CBD oils.
