The CBD craze has been around a while now. Yet many people do not understand CBD or are not able to differentiate between which brands are genuine, and which can only be described as snake oil. The CBD industry has no regulations at the moment, and many companies are patiently waiting for the new licensing to come into place. This will help regulate the ever-growing CBD market and ensure what is being sold is safe for the consumers. Most importantly what companies are claiming on the label is what is in fact in the bottle. This article is based on Full-spectrum and why UK-CBD Oils promote this product the most.
We started our company back in April 2018, CBD had been an interest of ours for some time, but we spent over 6 months researching and then a further 6 months finding the perfect supplier. We wanted to bring our consumers the best products available at the best price we can. We decided to sell only full-spectrum products at the time as with extensive research we found these offered the most benefits. We do offer a range of products now which include isolate CBD products, but we believe the best form of CBD is full-spectrum.
What is Full Spectrum Oil?
A full-spectrum CBD oils, contains multiple cannabis plant extracts, including essential oil, terpenes and other cannabinoids. They also contain Tetrahydrocannabinol; this is the part of the plant that gets you high, but you can be rest assured at UK CBD Oils we ensure all our products are within the law and you will not get this side effect off our products. It contains all cannabis compounds, which is believed to give it more potent effects then Pure CBD (Isolate) ranges.
Full-spectrum oil is extracted in a way in which retains all the beneficial compounds the hemp plant has to offer. A general rule, the more beneficial compounds, an oil has, the more effective it is. Full Spectrum Oil gives the Entourage Effect.
What is the Entourage Effect?
The Entourage Effect is when multiple compounds work synergistically together rather than alone.
In a 2009 paper Synergy research: Approaching a new generation of phytopharmaceuticals, scientists Hildebert Wagner and Gudrun Ulrich-Merzenich outlined and discussed the following basic mechanisms of the entourage effect:
• Whole-plant derived compounds can affect multiple targets within the body.
• Whole plant synergy improves the bioavailability, resorption and solubility rate of active compounds.
• Whole plant synergy assists in overcoming bacterial defence mechanisms.
• Whole plant synergy contributes to minimizing adverse side effects of active compounds.
It is clear to see from this research; the Entourage Effect supports the ideas that whole plant is superior then a single isolated molecule.
What is the benefit of Full Spectrum Oil?
Full-spectrum CBD oil can be used to help boost out body’s endocannabinoid system This system is found in all mammals and help regulate the body’s functions, such as memory, mood, pain, sleep or appetite. The endocannabinoid system helps restore the body’s homeostasis.
Does Full Spectrum contain THC?
At UK-CBD Oils all our oils contain less than 1mg of THC per container. This is undetectable in most cases and is always within the legal limits. The tiny amounts of THC in the full spectrum extract means that is highly unlikely you would fail a drug test. But this does depend on the sensitivity of the test, there is a small chance using full-spectrum CBD products over long period times could trigger a positive result, we do offer THC free alternatives to anyone worrying about this.
Which Full Spectrum product?
Our company ranges in many products from oil drops, pastes, capsules and gummies which are all full-spectrum. Not one product suites all, we are all different. Some of us are more sensitive to CBD and need less, some need more. We recommend depending what you are wanting to use for to start low doses and work up if need to.
Do you offer any other products that are not Full Spectrum?
For anyone looking for the benefits of the CBD but don’t want products with THC in then we do pure range products which contain just pure CBD or broad-spectrum gummies that have no THC in to. We also offer a vape range with no THC in also. Although full-spectrum is advised to be the best way to take CBD, these alternatives still offer great results.
