CBD oil has many potential benefits. It has been reported by many to help with relieving seizures, providing relief from muscle spasms, reducing anxiety, alleviating sleeplessness, minimizing pain and inflammation, and more. CBD oil is also a great way to aid muscle recovery after a long day at work or outdoor adventures. It’s a powerful natural remedy that can be used to help people with specific conditions or their general well-being.
But what does it mean when we talk about “full spectrum” CBD? There are three main types: isolate, which is a pure form; broad-spectrum, which contains all the chemical compounds found in the hemp plant except THC (more on that in a moment); and full-spectrum. This blog is going to dive into the different ways full-spectrum CBD oil can benefit your health so you can feel your best.
Full Spectrum CBD Oil Explained
The cannabis plant is home to many different chemical compounds. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the active ingredients. It doesn’t make you high, and according to research from the World Health Organization, it also doesn’t have any indicators that could make people dependent on it.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another. This is the chemical that produces the sensation of being high that is commonly associated with marijuana use. It has psychoactive properties, but it also has many of the same health benefits as CBD because it interacts with your body in a similar way. Consumers report it being particularly helpful at relieving symptoms of chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety.
Full spectrum CBD oil contains extracts of both of these cannabinoids, as well as a range of others such as cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), and cannabinol (CBN). Human bodies are filled with cannabinoid receptors, particularly in the nervous and immune systems, which is why this product has such as powerful effect on the body. Full spectrum CBD oil combines all of these chemical compounds to maximize the benefit by ensuring the receptors are stimulated.
How Does Full Spectrum CBD Oil Reduce Pain?
The research on using CBD for pain management is very promising, but how does it actually work? It goes back to the cannabinoid receptors, also known as the body’s endocannabinoid system. They’re tiny proteins that receive signals from neurotransmitters and tell your body how it should respond.
Pain and inflammation can be very helpful, especially if your body is trying to tell you that something is wrong or it’s heating up in preparation to fight an infection. Normally, they go away once the threat has been dealt with, but that’s not always the case. For example, if you have a chronic injury or a long-term health condition, your body will continue sounding alarm bells. Chronic pain and inflammation aren’t just tiring or frustrating, they can be absolutely debilitating.
The chemical compounds in full spectrum CBD oil stimulate these receptors and can tell them to dial pain and inflammation back down to much more manageable levels. Studies have found positive effects on pain resulting from cancer and cancer treatments, arthritis, and migraines. More research is being done in this space as laws change and access to CBD products becomes mainstream.
What’s the Link Between Full Spectrum CBD Oil and Anxiety?
Full spectrum CBD oil works in a similar way with anxiety. Anxiety is a normal response to stress that presents with a combination of physical and mental symptoms. It’s commonly associated with trembling, sweating, increased heart rate, rapid breathing, nausea, insomnia, and an upset stomach. On top of that, it can cause feelings of nervousness, restlessness, tension, panic, a sense of danger or impending doom, uncontrollable worry, and more. It can significantly impact your well-being.
If your symptoms are chronic, full spectrum CBD oil may provide relief. The chemical compounds are believed to interact with a receptor in the brain called CB1, which controls the neurotransmitters released into your nervous system, connective tissues, organs, glands, and genitals.
Critically, it interacts with a hormone called serotonin, which is essential to stabilizing mood and promoting happiness. Serotonin also helps maintain healthy sleep cycles and digestion, which are two essential functions that are commonly disrupted during periods of intense anxiety.
How Does Full Spectrum CBD Oil Reduce Seizures?
Seizures occur when uncontrolled surges of electrical activity occur inside the brain. They can affect the whole body, causing symptoms such as stiffness, limpness, and altered states of consciousness. The Epilepsy Foundation notes that there is evidence that CBD can reduce the onset of seizures.
Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Epilepsy Center published a study in 2018 which found that randomized placebo-controlled trials showed a significant reduction in the frequency of seizures in patients with epilepsy. On top of that, they concluded that even more therapeutic potential could be discovered in further studies.
Meanwhile, an Italian study published in the Journal of Epilepsy Research in 2017 observed that interest in CBD products for the treatment of epilepsy has “skyrocketed.” CBD and THC have anticonvulsant properties that can improve seizure control as well as sleep.
Different Ways to Consume CBD Oil
There are a number of different ways to experience the benefits of CBD oil, but the most popular are edible gummies, topical creams, and oil tinctures.
Here are some we have available:
Full Spectrum CBD Oil Gummies
Gummies are a great way to try full spectrum CBD oil. Our full spectrum CBD gummies are our highest potency edible and are infused with 25mg of CBD as well as all the other extracts from the hemp plant, including trace but legal amounts of THC (amounting to less than 0.3%). This is enough for your body to benefit from all the compounds without worrying about psychoactive effects. (These levels of THC can eventually show up on a drug test. If your employer requires drug screening, please choose from our THC-free products).
These can be shipped in three to five days, and they offer an easy and discreet way to consume CBD. They come in a juicy blue raspberry flavor, which complements the natural hemp flavor. All our gummies are made in the U.S. from organically grown hemp which is free from pesticides, heavy metals, and solvents. You can use the QR code on the packaging to view the testing results directly.
Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture
Like the gummies, this tincture allows you to get the benefits of the whole plant. There is 1500mg of CBD per bottle, which makes it our strongest product. It’s a convenient and effective way to use CBD oil and is best consumed by holding it under the tongue for 60 to 90 seconds to aid absorption. This area of the mouth has lots of capillaries, which makes it easy for the CBD to enter your blood.
This is a vegan formula that contains only two ingredients: full-spectrum CBD distillate and MCT oil. It’s also available with an optional peppermint flavor, which adds natural peppermint essential oil. This means it’s easy to add to any other food or drinks. Again, it has trace amounts of THC, but it’s not enough to cause psychoactive effects – just a full spectrum of benefits for your health.
