FULL SPECTRUM OIL
The Beginning of Legal Cannabidiol (CBD)
With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill Act we have witnessed the birth of the "legal" hemp industry. With new laws removing hemp from the Schedule 1 controlled substances, hemp (cannabis with a THC profile less than 0.3%) has become legal to grow, cultivate, process, sell, and transport in all 50 states of the US. Since the passing of the farm bill we are witnessing the emergence of multiple markets within the "legal" hemp industry.
Hemp is gaining a lot of traction with wellness communities and mental health advocates due to an abundance of beneficial properties. Comparing hemp to cannabis; while being legal in a few states, marijuana is still illegal on the federal level. Being such a new market, you see people trying to take advantage and trying to capitalize on a market no one fully understands yet.
What Is CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) Oil is one of many CBD end products created through various extraction processes resulting in an oil of significant purity. CBD Oil is arguably the most popular of the many cannabinoid extraction varieties currently garnering attention. While some concentrations and extracts differ, they certainly have a multitude of applications as well as plenty of health benefits for people to enjoy!
Hemp and its THC rich counterpart "cannabis" contain more than a hundred different cannabinoids. While THC and CBD are the two most popular cannabinoids that just about everyone knows about, their identifying characteristic effects are worlds apart. While THC is what makes people feel "high", CBD is best known for its profound effects (some of which that are not yet fully understood) on our overall wellbeing and health and thats only scratching the surface. Since the passing of the 2018 farm bill, companies all over the country have begun encompassing CBD concentrates in just about every kind of product you could think of. Products such as shampoo, bath bombs, ointments, dog treats, and everything in between are being used as mediums for CBD and the options are as endless as the sky.
Full Spectrum CBD - CBD Isolate - CBD Distillate?
Full spectrum CBD oil and other products such as CBD Isolate or CBD Distillate should not be confused with each other.
Extracts such as isolate and distillate are on the very end of the extraction process and are very costly to make and just as expensive to buy. These end product extracts contain one profile of cannabinoid whereas full spectrum oil contains multiple profiles of cannabinoids, terpenes and other organic components.
Typically consumers of CBD oils and extracts tend to prefer full spectrum over specific extracts such as isolate and distillate as full spectrum gives a heightened experience largely due to a "full spectrum" of cannabinoids and terpenes that naturally work together to give pleasant relief to a variety of conditions.
