Seriously, you HAVE to try full spectrum CBD! Cannabidiol is perceived negatively as it comes from cannabis plants. However, it is often derived from hemp, not marijuana. A hemp plant is low in THC, which is the cannabinoid that makes you high. However, what if I was to tell you that a little bit of THC is actually good… like really good?
Types of CBD Products
You’re probably wondering “what on Earth is full spectrum CBD”? Very good question. There are actually four types of CBD you should understand.
CBD isolate – CBD on its own; no other cannabinoids or terpenes. It is in powder form.
Narrow spectrum CBD – CBD along with a small proportion of other cannabinoids, but not THC
Broad spectrum CBD – CBD along with most if not all cannabinoids with the exception of THC.
Full spectrum CBD – CBD along with all cannabinoids including a small amount of THC (not enough to get you high).
Why Full Spectrum CBD
The benefits of Full Spectrum CBD are that full spectrum products have an entire range of cannabinoids including THC. CBD is a wonderful substance that has really benefited many of us. However, CBD on its own isn’t as effective. CBD works best with other cannabinoids and terpenes.
We suggest CBD isolate for vaping, dabbing and even baking. However, other than that, we recommended staying away from isolate and narrow spectrum products. You would need a much higher dose to get the same effect as you would with broad and full spectrum products.
That’s exactly why we, at Excite for Life, encourage broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD products. When CBD is working in synergy with other cannabinoids, it produces a larger effect. This is known as the entourage effect. What makes full spectrum CBD products even better is the THC.
Understandably, many people want to stay away from THC as it is associated with ‘getting high’. However, as it is a miniscule amount, you will not get high. As long as you purchase from trusted brands and shops, you will receive CBD products with less than the UK legal limit of 0.2% of THC.
The small amount of THC makes the CBD products much more beneficial. The impact of the entourage effect is huge. With full spectrum CBD products, you’ll need a lower dosage than you would with isolate, narrow or broad spectrum. For example, if you needed 40mg of a narrow spectrum CBD oil, you may only need 10mg of a full spectrum CBD oil
Disadvantages of Full Spectrum
The only disadvantage of a full spectrum CBD product is that it could show up as a false positive on a drug test, although this hardly happens. However, if it does happen, ask for a lab test report from the supplier and show it to your employer to prove you were only taking CBD and doing nothing illegal.
