What is Full Spectrum CBD?
Exciting News! Divine Spark is now offering a full spectrum CBD product! Don't worry, we still offer a non-thc option.
So, what does Full-Spectrum CBD mean?
CBD can seem complicated at first, so let’s break it down a little.
The cannabis plant contains a few different types of beneficial compounds:
Cannabinoids. There are more than 100 cannabinoids, including CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD and THC are responsible for the therapeutic and psychoactive effects of cannabis products.
Terpenes. The more than 150 terpenes in cannabis affect the plant’s fragrance (think: what makes an orange smell citrusy). They can also have therapeutic benefits (think: how lavender has a calming effect).
Flavonoids. Cannabis includes about 20 different flavonoids. Flavonoids are found in all kinds of plants, including fruits, vegetables, grains, and more. Like terpenes, they have therapeutic effects. StudiesTrusted Source show that the flavonoids found in cannabis have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and neuroprotective properties.
Full-spectrum CBD includes small amounts of all of these compounds, including THC.
While some studies suggest CBD can be beneficial on its own:
other research suggests that CBD’s therapeutic effects are stronger when combined with other cannabis compounds, including terpenes, flavonoids, and lesser-known cannabinoids. This theory is called the entourage effect.
Full-spectrum CBD does include other compounds, but the THC found only in full-spectrum products may amp up the anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits of CBD.
Keep in mind that with very low levels of THC (less than 0.3 percent), full-spectrum CBD still shouldn’t cause you to feel “high.” Though, this depends on the product’s potency and your dosage. If you take a large dose of a high-potency product, you may be ingesting enough THC to produce a euphoric effect.
So the bottom line, is the full-spectrum product that we use, may have more benefits when it comes to pain relief and relaxation. Just make sure that you do not have any upcoming drug-testing coming up as the small amount of THC is still enough to come up on a drug-screening.
