What is full spectrum hemp oil?
Full-spectrum hemp extract is created with the full list of cannabinoids, terpenes, and valuable compounds that can be found in the hemp plant. The hemp plant is actually comprised of at least 100 different, unique cannabinoids, including CBD (cannabidiol). While CBD is the most prominent cannabinoid in most hemp plants, other cannabinoids are present in smaller amounts, such as cannabigerol (CBG), cannabichromene (CBD), and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Terpenes, which are the constituents found in plants from the cannabis family responsible for unique smell and flavor qualities, can also be found in full-spectrum hemp extracts.
What does full spectrum hemp extract mean?
Full-spectrum is the name given to extracts that contain the full list of cannabinoids and terpenes from the hemp plant. You are essentially getting a “full spectrum” of components from the hemp plant instead of only the CBD. On the contrary, CBD isolate would yield only the CBD. And, a broad-spectrum hemp extract yields everything except for the THC, including several other cannabinoids and terpenes that may offer their own therapeutic value.
How to take full spectrum hemp extract?
Full-spectrum hemp extract can be taken either sublingually (under the tongue) or simply by swallowing the extract. Sublingual use tends to offer the quickest onset of effects; most products will make it into your bloodstream within 15 minutes. To take hemp extract sublingually, simply place your premeasured dose under your tongue, hold the fluid in place for up to 30 seconds, and then swallow the extract.
No dosing specifics have been outlined to date for CBD or hemp extracts. Each individual can require a different amount of CBD or full-spectrum hemp extract in order to feel the most desirable effects. Your weight, metabolism, body chemistry, and a number of other factors can affect your overall dosage needed. Therefore, it is a good idea to introduce any hemp extract slowly by starting with a minimal dose and adjusting as needed. For example, you may start at a dose of 25mg, monitor the outcome or effects, and then add 5mg to your dose if needed. You can continue this process until you see desirable effects.
How to use full spectrum hemp extract?
How you choose to use the full-spectrum hemp extract is entirely up to your own needs. People from all walks of life are finding value in the cannabinoids found in hemp extracts. For example, you may choose to use a high-CBG hemp extract to potentially minimize inflammation in your body. Or, you may want a full-spectrum CBD tincture to curb restless thoughts and possibly help you feel more relaxed. As a side note, you can take your hemp extract all in one daily dose, or simply split your dose and take it morning and night.
What does full spectrum hemp extract do?
Full-spectrum hemp extract delivers the valuable cannabinoids into your bloodstream where the valuable components interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is one of the many bodily systems and aids in a variety of functions, such as sleep, mood, appetite, and even pain perception. Phytocannabinoids like CBD mimic the actions of endocannabinoids, which are made by the body.
Once the cannabinoids reach the ECS, they can attach to a number of receptors or simply help to stabilize already present endocannabinoids. While a great deal remains to be researched, scientists do believe it is the interaction with the ECS that yields the therapeutic value of hemp-derived cannabinoids. Additionally, endocannabinoids and terpenes are thought to offer synergistic action when used together. So, for example, CBD may offer better effects when introduced to the ECS with relative cannabinoids like CBG.
