What is Full Spectrum Hemp CBD oil – a simple and easy explanation

Thank you for being an awesome consumer and doing your research before buying something! While you have been doing research into CBD oil I am sure you have seen “full spectrum ” on CBD oil websites or someone has mentioned it to you. You figured it was time to find out the answer to the burning question, what is full spectrum hemp CBD oil? Well, my friend, you have found an amazing site if I do say so myself, filled with simple and easy answers to this question and many more.

But enough about that, you are here today wondering what “full spectrum” hemp CBD oil is so let’s get right to it.


Full Spectrum Hemp CBD oil

In the most basic and simple terms, “full spectrum” hemp CBD oil includes all the Phytocannabinoids (CBD,THC and 100+ more), Flavonoids (compounds in plants which give plants their pigmentation (color), filter out UV rays, attract pollinators, and prevent plant diseases, shown to have beneficial effects such as: anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial, anti-cancer, and anti-allergic activity), and Terpenes (organic hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of plants, they give hemp its smell, taste, and color, it also gives the CBD oil its identity and can change the effect of the oil), and fatty acids (omega-3’s and omega-6’s)

Manufacturers of CBD oil use the entire plant to make the “full spectrum” hemp CBD oil instead of just using a part of it. This gives the consumer the “entourage effect ” if you don’t know what that is please feel free to click on the link to learn more about it. It is basically using all the components to get the greatest benefits instead of using an isolate.

That’s really all there is to it. Pretty simple right?


Hemp CBD oil Isolate

The other option for Hemp CBD oil is to get the CBD isolate. The isolate only contains CBD and nothing else. There is no THC in the isolate whereas the “full spectrum” can contain up to 0.3% THC. Manufactures use the same process for extracting both the CBD isolate and the “full spectrum”, the isolate is just extracted from the “full spectrum” CBD oil.

CBD isolate has lots of benefits as does the “full spectrum” some people prefer the effects of the isolate over the “full spectrum” and some prefer to get the “entourage effect” from it. If you are looking for the maximum health benefits from your CBD oil I would personally recommend the “full spectrum” kind, it works best for me. But each person is different and what works for one person doesn’t always work for another.

This can be a great option for those people that would like the amazing benefits of CBD but might be worried about drug testing, you can learn more about this here. The CBD isolate can be found in liquid, powder or cream form. The highest quality CBD isolate will be 99% pure.

There is no harm in trying both of them and seeing which one works best for you 🙂


The Takeaway

I hope I have explained what “full spectrum” hemp CBD oil is, in simple and easy terms for you. My goal is to educate you on all things CBD 🙂 As a reminder: “full spectrum” hemp CBD oil means using the whole plant including all phytocannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes and fatty acids. Hemp CBD oil isolate only contains CBD. Nice and simple 🙂 If you have any questions or comments about this or anything else please feel free to comment below.
