If you’re new to the CBD world, we wouldn’t blame you for being confused by some of the terminology. Full-spectrum CBD is a phrase that pops up a lot, especially when talking about HighKind – but what does full-spectrum actually mean? We’ve got together a few points to help you wrap your head around the intricacies of full-spectrum CBD. What does full-spectrum mean?In a nutshell, full-spectrum CBD products contain the full range of terpenes and cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. Whilst lower quality extraction processes miss out on this wide variety of compounds, full-spectrum CBD means your endocannabinoid system will be engaged and you will reap all the benefits that this wonder plant has to offer. What is the endocannabinoid system?The endocannabinoid system is a regulatory system that ensures the balance of various bodily functions. These processes include cell communication, immune response and metabolism. Cannabidiol (CBD) interacts with the CB-1 and CB-2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system to produce the effects of CBD. Using full-spectrum oil ensures you’re not missing out on any of those bonus organic minerals and nutrients that can bolster the CBD and ECS interaction. What are the benefits?The benefits that come with full-spectrum oil can be truly transformative. A full plant extract maintains all the organic goodness of the hemp plant, including terpenes and other essential vitamins. The more terpenes in your CBD, the more enjoyable and beneficial the experience will be. Terpenes such as linalool may be able to help with pain relief, while others such as caryophyllene could help you fall asleep faster. If you’re looking for the optimum CBD benefits, you can’t do better than full-spectrum. What’s the HighKind process?Here at HighKind, we’ve been experimenting with different methods of distillation and extraction for years. Recognised as non-toxic and safe (GRAS) by the FDA, our CO2 extraction and distillation is by far the cleanest and most sustainable method for extracting full-spectrum CBD oil. It’s also worth noting that even though the resulting extract doesn’t contain THC, this process still results in a whole plant extract. All in all, this makes full-spectrum CBD oil the healthiest and most effective way to consume your CBD. With the numerous aromatherapeutic benefits and sustainable extraction methods, full-spectrum CBD is the optimum experience for beginners and enthusiasts alike.
