When we say full-spectrum CBD oil, we mean that the entire cannabinoids present in it occur naturally in the cannabis plant. Usually, if any CBD oil of full-spectrum variety is of very good quality then it will contain a higher amount of CBD and only traces of any other cannabinoids like THC.
Usually, any full spectrum CBD products that you can obtain from Just CBD store can be considered to be more effective as compared to other products, which are derived from CBD isolate. Those products that are derived from isolate will mainly contain isolated CBD molecule.
What are available with full-spectrum CBD?
Now, let us try to know what we are getting with full-spectrum product in addition to CBD. As you know, there are more than a hundred different numbers of cannabinoids that are found in the hemp plant.
Only CBD and THC, two are the most abundant cannabinoids present in cannabis, but besides that, there are many other minor cannabinoids, which can play a very important role to increase the effectiveness of the CBD product.
Following is the list of all their names and also what role they play in our human body.
- CBD (Cannabidiol)
Of course, CBD is one of the most abundant compounds available in the hemp plant. CBD will not produce any “high” feeling after consuming what THC can offer. Therefore, CBD is used for promoting a healthy functioning system in our body.
Few people have reported that it can bring a relaxing/calming effect, while a few others may get more energized by consuming CBD.
- THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol)
THC is another compound present in the cannabis plant which makes any user feel “high”. In fact, with the amount of THC present, you can distinguish between a hemp plant and marijuana.
If it contains less than 0.3% THC then it will be defined as hemp. Anything above this level will be marijuana. In full-spectrum CBD and its products, the amount of THC will be always below 0.3%.
- CBG (Cannabigerol)
Just like CBD, CBG to is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid. Actually, it is the parent compound of CBD and THC. It acts as a precursor of 3 main cannabinoid lines:
- Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA)
- Cannabichromene acid (CBCA).
- tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA)
Enzymes present in the cannabis plant will actually break down CBG in order to convert it into one such final compounds.
- CBN (Cannabinol)
Another minor cannabinoid known as CBN is being studied by researchers for its few sedative effects. It is believed that CBN is one of the compounds present in cannabis, which can give any consumer a relaxed feeling.
- CBC (Cannabichromene)
In the Cannabis plant, another compound found is known as cannabichromene (CBC), which is one among the hundreds of other cannabinoids that is found and hence it is also known as phyto-cannabinoid.
This compound will bear all the structural similarity with all other natural cannabinoids, that are present e.g. CBD, CBN, THC and THCV among others. CBC as well as its derivatives are now as abundant as any cannabinols in cannabis.
