THC and CBD are the most discussed compounds of hemp and cannabis, but what is full spectrum hemp and what does it mean when consuming CBD? To get a greater understanding, let’s first discuss the hemp plant.
Full 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 CBD, CBDV, CBC, CBN, and many beneficial terpenes, it’s time we turn to the plant as a whole for its myriad of benefits.
Full spectrum hemp refers to the whole plant. In it’s a pure extract form, full spectrum hemp keeps many of the synergistic properties of the cannabinoids and compounds intact. In addition to these cannabinoid compounds full 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
Full-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. Full spectrum hemp extract can even have minerals like magnesium, zinc, potassium, calcium, and iron.
Proteins and Fats
Full spectrum hemp seeds contain over nine grams of protein — higher than flax and chia seeds — that’s pretty powerful. Full 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 full 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 full spectrum hemp.
