What are the benefits of full spectrum CBD distillate?
Full spectrum CBD distillate takes advantage of all the cannabinoids present within the hemp flower aside from the psychoactive effects of THC, since it is removed during the remediation process following extraction. Although individuals respond differently to the consumption of cannabinoids, various studies have shown benefits such as relief of chronic pain, improved lung capacity, regulation and prevention of diabetes, fighting cancer, treat depression, treat autism, regulate seizures, improve cognition and concentration, treat glaucoma, alleviate anxiety, slow development of Alzheimer’s, treat inflammatory bowel disease and reduce tremors associated with Parkinson’s Disease.
What does full spectrum mean?
Full spectrum means the distillate is composed of the full spectrum of cannabinoids present within the hemp plant, aside from THC as it is removed during the extraction process.
How do you use full spectrum CBD distillate?
Full-spectrum distillate can be consumed orally by adding distillate to your favorite sweets or candies, applied topically via a salve or balm or added to essential oils to produce a sublingual tincture that is administered underneath the tongue.
What is the difference between full spectrum CBD distillate and Isolate CBD?
Not only does the physical appearance of isolate and distillate differ, so does the composition of each hemp extract. As mentioned before, isolate is cannabidiol in its purest form. It is a white, powdery crystalline solid. On the contrary distillate is a golden oil extract that not only contains around 75% cannabidiol, but also other cannabinoids such as cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) under the legal threshold of 0.3%. Terpenes are also present in distillate, which is what gives the hemp plant a distinguished taste and smell depending on the strain of Cannabis sativa used to begin the extraction process.
Consumers seeking all the benefits of CBD, whether it be treating anxiety or inflammation, without also consuming other cannabinoids should seek out CBD isolate infused products. Some consumers are sensitive to THC, have adverse effects or need to avoid consumption of THC in any amount due to work-mandated drug testing. Although the amount of THC in full-spectrum distillate is required by law to be 0.3% or lower, consistent prolonged use of full-spectrum distillate could trigger a positive result on a urinalysis drug screening.
For those that do not have negative effects or concerns of consuming very small amounts of THC, full-spectrum distillates might provide more relief than isolate CBD. Full-spectrum distillate has the greatest effectiveness of these products due to the different cannabinoids working together synergistically. This is often referred to as the “entourage effect”. Users reap the benefits of CBD as well as all other cannabinoids naturally present in the Cannabis sativa plant, including a very small amount of THC. THC has been shown to have pain-reducing and sleep-inducing effects but can also increase anxiety for some users. Although it is very small in concentration, it’s important to be mindful when choosing your extract. Research is relatively sparse regarding the therapeutic benefits of CBG, when compared to the apparent wealth of information available on THC and CBD but there are early studies linking the compound to a whole host of potential therapeutic uses, such as treating glaucoma, decreasing inflammation and killing drug-resistant bacteria. CBN reduces intraocular pressure in the eye, so it can be used in the treatment of glaucoma. CBN also fights free radicals in the bloodstream, and it performs similarly to THC in pain reduction treatments.
Is full spectrum CBD distillate psychoactive? Will it get you high?
Although full-spectrum distillate contains trace amounts of THC, it is not psychoactive and will not produce a “high” associated with marijuana.
Why is full spectrum CBD distillate better for some users?
Full-spectrum distillate has the greatest effectiveness of these products due to the different cannabinoids working together synergistically. This is often referred to as the “entourage effect”. Users reap the benefits of CBD as well as all other cannabinoids naturally present in the Cannabis sativa plant, including a very small amount of THC.
