Learn about the wonder of full-spectrum CBD

What is CBD?

CBD stands for “Cannabidiol” and is a chemical compound found in the cannabis sativa plant. CBD is non-psychoactive and is not associated with the “euphoric high” of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) that is commonly found in higher concentrations within marijuana products.

What is Full-Spectrum CBD?

Full-spectrum CBD contains numerous cannabinoid compounds from the cannabis plant as well as low levels of THC (typically less than 0.3%). This low percentage of THC content ensures a non-psychoactive experience.

Full-Spectrum vs Broad Spectrum vs CBD Isolate

Full-Spectrum CBD: contains all components of the cannabis sativa plant including trace amounts of THC.

Broad Spectrum CBD: contains all components of the cannabis sativa plant except for THC.

CBD Isolate: Manipulated to contain only the CBD compound.

Cannabis vs Hemp vs Marijuana

You’ve probably heard these three terms before, and it may have caused some confusion. Here’s how they all relate to one another. Cannabis sativa has two primary species, hemp and marijuana. Hemp contains higher percentages of CBD and has very low levels of THC. Marijuana typically has higher levels of THC and is used primarily for its psychoactive properties.

Cannabinoids, Terpenes, and Flavonoids

Cannabinoids: Naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis sativa plant. The most well-known among these compounds are CBD and THC.

Terpenes: Responsible for the aromas, flavors, and even colors associated with various types of plants. In cannabis, terpenes can make different strains smell or taste different.

Flavonoids: Natural compounds found in many fruits and vegetables.
