THC and CBD are the most discussed compounds of hemp and cannabis, but what is broad spectrum hemp and what does it mean when consuming CBD? To get a greater understanding, let’s first discuss the hemp plant.
Broad Spectrum Hemp
As you probably know, the CBD compound found in hemp has been the main focus when it comes to hemp and marijuana strains of cannabis for healing properties, but it’s only one compound of the whole plant. Since hemp has many essential compounds, like CBG, CBDV, CBC, CBN, and many beneficial terpenes, it’s time we turn to the plant as a whole for its myriad of benefits.
Broad spectrum hemp refers to the whole plant. In it’s a pure extract form, broad-spectrum hemp keeps many of the synergistic properties of the cannabinoids and compounds intact. In addition to these cannabinoid compounds broad spectrum hemp has essential vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fats.
The most popular cannabinoid found in hemp is cannabidiol, or CBD, which often makes up over half of the cannabinoid materials. Another essential compound is cannabidiolic acid (CBDa). When the hemp plant is alive, it has higher levels of CBDa, but once it goes through the extraction process, intruducing some combustion through heat (decarboxylation), CBDa turns into CBD which increases the levels of CBD in the finished product.
Take Your Multivitamin
Broad-spectrum hemp extract contains vitamins and minerals that aren’t present in many diets, such as A, C, E, and B complex vitamins! And as we know, vitamins and minerals are essential for a healthy body and immune system. Broad spectrum hemp extract can even have minerals like magnesium, zinc, potassium, calcium, and iron.
Proteins and Fats
Broad spectrum hemp seeds contain over nine grams of protein — higher than flax and chia seeds — that’s pretty powerful. Broad spectrum hemp also has nine essential amino acids, which may help with heart health.
The Entourage Effect
The entourage effect describes a synergistic effect when taking broad spectrum hemp. This term defines that plant materials could work better together as a whole, similar to consuming the natural plant, rather than consuming compounds in isolation as with many pharmaceutical forms.Cannadips CBD is sourced from broad spectrum hemp.
