Hey everyone! If you are anything like me you have been researching CBD (cannabinoid) oil and came across the term Flavonoid. This is usually used when talking about “full spectrum” CBD oil. You wisely decided to learn what flavanoids in CBD oil were. Good work! I am here you give you a nice easy explanation to this question 🙂
One of the three components of the hemp plant which are attributed to providing you with the benefits of the “entourage effect” are flavonoids, the other two are phytocannabinoids (CBD and THC +100 others), and terpenes. So what are these flavonoids anyway? Flavonoids are compounds that are found in plants that give them their color, attract pollinators (like bees and such), filter out harmful UV rays, and help keep plants alive by preventing plant diseases. Pretty awesome, right?
Flavonoids are a very important component of CBD oil because research has shown them to have beneficial effects such as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-fungal, anti-cancer, and anti-allergic activity. These are fantastic things that are all found in high quality “full spectrum” CBD oil.
Types of Flavonoids
I want to highlight 3 of the 20 flavonoids that are found in the Hemp plant and are found to be the most beneficial to us:
Apigenin shows great promise with its anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory properties. it is also found in celery, parsley, and chamomile tea.
Cannaflavin A is only found in hemp and has strong anti-inflammatory properties.
Quercetin research shows that it is a powerful anti-viral, anti-cancer, and an anti-oxidant compound. it can also be found in red wine, berries of all types and green tea.
I like to call these flavonoids the “Anti-Trio” 🙂
If you want a more detail description of flavonoids including chemical compounds and such please click here to go to Wikipedia 🙂
I wanted to make this short and sweet and give you a pretty simple explanation of a really complicated substance. If you went to the Wikipedia page you know what I mean 🙂 I hope this info helps in your CBD oil research. Have an awesome day!
