What is Full Spectrum CBD?
Over hundreds of cannabinoids are found in the cannabis plants and the two most well known are CBD and THC. CBD is often extracted from hemp plant for higher levels of CBD. On the other hand THC is extracted from cannabis plants for higher levels of THC. Both CBD and THC have similar medicinal properties that help with pain, chronic pain, inflammation, nausea, motion sickness, mood disorders, psychosis, sleep, insomnia, stress, anxiety, depression or low appetite. These two components may have similar chemical structure, but CBD doesn't produce a high from THC and does not cause you to have any euphoric sensation while THC may cause you to feel high as it has psychoactive properties.
Now before we start talking about Full Spectrum CBD you should know that there are three kinds of CBD oil available in the market. CBD Isolate is pure CBD without THC or any other cannabinoids. Broad Spectrum CBD contains CBD and other cannabinoids without THC and then we have Full Spectrum CBD includes CBD and other cannabinoids including THC. The amount of THC is 0.3% or less.
