Hemp Oil exists in two main states either as “full spectrum variety” or as isolates. Full spectrum variety is simply that which is derived from “whole plant extract” and hence contains a wide array of essential components including, CBD, THC and other cannabinoids such as cannabinol and cannabigerol, chlorophyll, terpenes, vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, and omega fatty acids; whereas the isolates constitute pure cannabidiol extract only.
Full Spectrum oil refers to hemp oils that contain all the compounds and phytocannabinoids found in the natural agricultural hemp plant. The full spectrum oil can contain trace amounts of the essential oils, and vitamins found in the hemp plant. Many manufacturers use only portions of the plant, thus leaving out many of the active cannabinoids constituents. All True Hemp Company products perform better with the complete and full spectrum of the Hemp plant the way nature intended.
Phytocannabinoids such as CBN & CBG help alleviate inflammation by reducing pain and swelling through the decreased production of the markers of inflammation. Aside from the analgesic effect, they also fight pathogenic bacteria. Full spectrum variety beneficial healing properties are attributed not only to the cannabinoids but also the terpenes and fatty acids. The terpenes confer anti-inflammatory properties and potentiate the efficacy of the cannabinoids. This synergistic interaction between phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and other non-cannabinoid compounds further enhances the health benefits of the full spectrum compared to the isolate an effect known as the entourage effect.
While many companies tout the benefits of CBD oil, there is some evidence that says that while a very beneficial cannabinoid CBD cannot do its work alone. The full spectrum oil like that in True Hemp Company products can do amazing things in the human body when the other phytocannabinoids and terpenes are present.
