Full spectrum CBD - you may have heard this term thrown around in CBD stores, the internet, magazines and books, even in the news. So what exactly is Full Spectrum CBD, and is it better than other products? The best way to understand the benefits of full spectrum CBD would be to look at it like a daily multivitamin. Multivitamins have levels of multiple different vitamins, like vitamin C, D, E, K, B and so on - giving your body and mind many more benefits from a single product. Where as CBD isolate, a single vitamin, like Vitamin C, will only benefit your body in select, specific ways.
Simply put, full spectrum is extraction of the entire plant, stalk, leaves, flowers etc. Including all the cannabinoids, like CBD and many others. This differs from isolate products, as isolates may be extracted from particular parts of the plant (just the flowers or the leaves), and single out a desired cannabinoid, such as CBD.
Cannabis, whether from hemp or marijuana, produces hundreds of different cannabinoids. Cannabinoids like Cannabigerol (CBG) which has anti-anxiety effect and is great for muscle stiffness, Cannabichromene (CBC) which studies have shown to have anit-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory effects. Other cannabinoids they produce include Cannabinol (CBN) that has a calming effect on the nerves, and helps with insomnia. Even the ones people fear most like Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol, the activated THC compound that gives you a high. But even this specific cannabinoid has great medicinal properties, and has its predecessors, such as Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THC-A). THC-A is not activated THC and will not give you a high. It still has important medicinal effects as well. Studies have shown that it helps with nausea, has anti-proliferative effects to help stop cell growth, which can be really important for cancer patients and even contains neuroprotective properties.
Ingesting full spectrum CBD can even offer preventative care against other ailments later in life. I can say from my experience that full spectrum has been more beneficial over the long term. Helping with nausea, pain relief, and on occasion muscle stiffness. Come try the American Shaman full spectrum CBD to feel how it will benefit you!
