What is Full Spectrum Hemp Oil?

Full spectrum hemp oil is the purest form of oil extracted from the hemp cannabis plant. Rich in CBD, full spectrum hemp oil contains a number of natural cannabinoids, terpenes, essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, proteins, fibers, flavonoids, and chlorophyll.

Benefits of Hemp Oil

Full spectrum hemp oil is a truly remarkable substance. Its vast matrix of phytocannabinoids works on the endocannabinoid system to produce an extensive list of benefits in many different places of the body. Namely, it works to improve homeostasis, a very important bodily function, and thus restore anything out of balance in the body. Note that these benefits are not FDA-approved, but are frequently observed in clinical studies and anecdotal reports.

Why is Hemp Important?

Though industrial hemp has a plethora of uses itself, the oil of the plant is on a whole new level when it comes to health: due to the massive amount of therapeutic compounds in full spectrum hemp oil, it creates an entourage effect of benefits. This means the compounds work in unison to amplify the therapeutic effects of each. A number of both anecdotal and research-based studies have shown this to be true.

Hemp vs. CBD Isolate

Though CBD isolate comes from the hemp plant, it is only one of the compounds found in full spectrum hemp oil. Due to this, many believe full spectrum formulations are vastly more effective than pure CBD formulations, for they not only contain a large amount of CBD, but also hundreds of other cannabinoids, terpenes, vitamins, and nutrients.

What is in Hemp Oil?

Cannabinoids

Full spectrum hemp oil is abundant in naturally occurring phytocannabinoids:

  • CBD (Cannabidiol)
  • CBG (Cannabigerol)
  • CBC (Cannabichromene)
  • CBN (Cannabinol)
  • CBGV (Cannabigerivarin)
  • THCV (Tetrahydrocannavibarin)

Terpenes

Full spectrum hemp oil has a number of terpenes which give it its rich, earthly aroma, and act to benefit health:

  • Pinene, found in pine needles
  • Myrcene, found in mango and hops
  • Limonene, found in lemon and citrus fruits
  • Linalool, found in lavender
  • Caryophyllene, found in peppers

Nutrients

Full spectrum hemp oil has a plethora of essential nutrients:

  • Vitamins A, C, E, and B, essential for health
  • Minerals magnesium, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, and iron, important for nerve function, bodily maintenance, muscular development, and metabolism
  • Proteins for the growth, reparation, and maintenance of tissues and muscles
  • Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, beneficial for heart and cardiovascular health
What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are the aroma-offering compounds that give cannabis its unique, down-to-earth scent. Specifically, terpenes are a broad category of compounds that make up the vast majority of essential oils. An example is pinene, which gives pine trees their earthly aroma. Terpenes are thought to act as anxiolytics and pain relievers, and are abundant in full spectrum hemp oil.

What are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are a group of closely related compounds which make up the active constituents of cannabis. These include CBD and THC, the chemical responsible for a “high” (although full spectrum hemp oil does NOT have THC). There are a few different types of cannabinoids:

  • Phytocannabinoids, or the naturally occuring cannabinoids found in cannabis
  • Endocannabinoids, or cannabinoids generated in the body
  • Synthetic cannabinoids, or lab-generated cannabinoids

Keep in mind that full spectrum hemp oil has only phytocannabinoids, and no THC.

Does Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Have THC?

No. Hemp is a form of cannabis which does not have THC, but does contain other phytocannabinoids such as CBD and CBG. Thus, it is impossible to get high off of full spectrum hemp oil.

How Much CBD is in Full Spectrum Hemp Oil?

CBGenius full spectrum hemp oil has been tested to have anywhere from 50-60% cannabidiol (CBD) content.

Is Full Spectrum Hemp Oil the Same as Hemp Seed Oil?

No. Hemp seed oil refers to oil generated by pressing the seeds of hemp, and does not contain CBD. Hemp oil (and full spectrum hemp oil) refers to pure oil generated from the leaves of the hemp plant, and contains over 100 cannabinoids.

CBGenius produces the best full spectrum hemp oil out there.
