Whether you’re a recreational user or a medicinal one, you’re certainly familiar with the power of cannabis. And chances are, even if you have no familiarity with cannabis at all, you’ve at least heard about CBD … the natural compound in cannabis that interacts with the body’s own endocannabinoid system (ECS).
But with so many CBD products out there, available from gas stations to grocery stores, how do you tell a quality CBD product from one that’s not likely to be effective? Maybe you hear amazing results from others about CBD, so you try something from a gas station – and it doesn’t work. Lower quality products often don’t work – or don’t work as well – as a high quality full spectrum product.
To help you be able to judge the quality and effectiveness of CBD products for yourself, let’s go over some basics about CBD, THC, and other properties of full-spectrum CBD products before taking a look at our newest featured product from American Fiber (we’re so excited!).
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, abbreviated CBD, is one of approximately 115 plant derived “phytocannabinoids” that naturally occur in hemp or cannabis plants. CBD is the most abundant of these cannabinoids.
What is THC?
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is a crystalline compound that is the main active ingredient in cannabis causing the ‘high’ or psychoactive feeling.
Is CBD Psychoactive?
Despite their similar chemical structures, CBD and THC have different effects. CBD is a non-psychotropic compound, and doesn’t produce the ‘high’ associated with THC.
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found naturally in seeds, stalk, and flowers of cannabis plants (phytocannabinoids) and in our body (endocannabinoids).
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are the unsaturated hydrocarbons found in essential oils of plants that make up the scent and flavor of a plant.
What is full-spectrum CBD?
Full spectrum means that the CBD oil contains all the cannabinoids that are naturally occurring in the cannabis plant. Quality full spectrum CBD products are typically high in CBD, with smaller amounts of minor cannabinoids, and very low in THC (less than 0.3%).
What is the “entourage effect”?
Entourage effect is the synergistic effect of multiple cannabinoids and terpenes from a hemp or cannabis plant interacting with the body to produce an altogether stronger response than any one of the parts acting alone.
Who can use full-spectrum CBD?
While any adult 21 years or older can legally use CBD products in Michigan, age is where the similarities stop. Anyone from athletes to artists, parents to senior citizens, may find CBD helpful in achieving a variety of results. Often, people who prefer natural alternatives for help managing their conditions prefer CBD over other types of medicine.
What patients report:
Patients who use full-spectrum CBD report that they’ve experienced benefits related to:
- Sleep problems
- Muscle soreness
- Digestive issues
… and more!
