Full Spectrum CBD Distillate is a type of CBD Distillate (hemp oil) that contains all of the cannabinoids from the hemp plant, hence the name “full spectrum”.
Currently full spectrum CBD distillate is the most sought after form of distillate on the market because it contains greater quantities of the lesser known cannabinoids, terpenes, and hemp material which cannot be found in Broad Spectrum CBD Distillate or in CBD Isolate.
Entourage Effect: Scientists currently believe that cannabinoids interact with each other to produce a unique “entourage effect”.
The hypothesis behind the entourage effect is that although the two most well recognized cannabinoids are THC and CBD, there are several others minor cannabinoids that work together to produce the whole effect.
To put this into a practical context, a popular study published by the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management gave cancer patients either CBD, THC, or a combination of CBD with THC. The patients who received both CBD and THC reported experiencing less pain.
Hence the speculation that cannabinoids work synergistically with each other.
Scientists speculate that the effects of the major cannabinoids are slightly altered by whatever minor cannabinoids are present.
And so, because “full spectrum CBD distillate” contains all those minor cannabinoids, it is the most sought after type of CBD distillate by consumers looking experience the full benefits of cannabinoids.
