In previous blogs we've covered some of the differences between CBD isolate and Full Spectrum CBD products. But lets dive a little deeper. By taking a "full spectrum approach" in our extraction method we are allowing all of the cannabinoids to work with each other to provide the maximum amount of effectiveness while using our CBD products.
However, there is much more to hemp extracts than CBD, such as terpenes. There are over 150 different types of terpenes found in the plant and when we extract CBD, keeping full spectrum in mind, we also extract these terpenes. But what is a terpene? Terpenes are a fragrant or scented molecule in the plant that boasts the actual smell of the Hemp plant. There are many different strains of hemp and, as such, different terpenes to go along with it.
The relationship between the cannabinoids and terpenes is thought to play a crucial part in treating symptoms ranging from depression to anxiety or even pain and cancer. With full spectrum extraction methods and allowing the CBD and terpenes to stay together, we produce whats commonly referred to as "the entourage effect"
