W hile CBD has been around for thousands of years as an alternative medicine, it has recently made a huge impact and become very popular. It has been found to help the symptoms of a huge number of different illnesses, from mental health such as anxiety and depression to terminal illnesses such as cancer, and lifelong illnesses such as Parkinson’s and Epilepsy.
When researching online you may have come across Full Spectrum CBD at our Whitstable store or online and wonder how it is different to CBD.
In this blog we are going to answer the question, what is full spectrum CBD to give you a better understanding and help you make an informed choice as to which is best for you. Unlike CBD isolate products, full spectrum CBD oil includes a range of cannabinoids from the hemp or cannabis plant. This can help you achieve a greater effect from the CBD product as all of the cannabinoids work together. Full spectrum CBD also contains vitamins, fatty acids, protein, flavonoids, fibre, terpenes, minerals and chlorophyll.
What are the benefits of the whole plant?
In a study by the University of Jerusalem’s Hadassah School in 2015, where CBD oil was tested against full spectrum CBD, it was found that full spectrum CBD was more effective when used to treat inflammation or pain. The whole plant provided faster and longer lasting pain relief.
There are more than one hundred compounds in the cannabis plant, and many are used in other ways. When they combine they offer a much better benefit. While there are other cannabinoids present in full spectrum CBD, there is no THC. THC is the psychoactive part of the plant which is illegal in the UK.
