About Hemp & Cannabis

What is CBD and What are Cannabinoids?

Our cannabinoids are derived from our Hemp Plants in Colorado, USA. We grow 100% organically, with the highest standards of quality and procurement from start to finish.

CBD is a naturally occurring compound in the Human body and the Hemp Plant.

CBD, when made 100% bioavailable either through Nano infusion, Hydrosomal or Liposomal production methods, allows the CBD to bypass the liver and be 100% available to the human CBD receptors. Receptors for CBD exist within us all. When the body is introduced to 100% bioavailable CBD, the endocannabinoid system is activated. This system is connected with complex actions to our immune, & nervous systems, including all the bodies organs.

Cannabidiol (INN;[3] abbreviated as: CBD) is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in cannabis.[4][5] It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.[6] CBD does not have intoxicating effects like those caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and may have a downregulating effect on disordered thinking and anxiety. (WIKIPEDIA)

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the mammalian central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. The endocannabinoid system is involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes including fertility, [1] pregnancy, [2] during pre- and postnatal development,[3] appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory, and in mediating the pharmacological effects of cannabis (WIKIPEDIA)

​What is Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil?

While cannabidiol (CBD) is all the rage at present, it is often hard to understand what you are getting. Furthermore, with so many different CBD products on the market it’s hard to tell which are broad spectrum, which are not and which products are made from CBD cannabis or CBD hemp. In this article we will try to clear up any confusion, focusing the major part of the post around Broad Spectrum Hemp oil.

CBD has become quite popular over the last couple of years but despite what you might think it is only one the 100 compounds that have been identified in the Cannabis Sativa L plant. Broad Spectrum Hemp oil, unlike CBD isolate products, includes a wide range of cannabinoids present in the cannabis or hemp plant. Depending on the condition and what you are looking to achieve it can provide a greater effect than CBD alone as all the cannabinoids work together in what is known as the entourage effect.

Broad Spectrum Hemp also contains a variety of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, protein,

chlorophyll, terpenes, flavonoids, and fiber. When referring to CBD in the hemp plant, it’s important to understand that Hemp contains a

large number of cannabinoids (in trace amounts), but the main compounds are CBD and cannabidiolic acid (CBDa). As CBDa is more abundant in the hemp plant, firms must decarboxylate the oil. This process heats the oil and changes CBDa into CBD.

Just one last thing before we explain the benefits of Broad Spectrum Hemp oil, its important to understand that CBD from Cannabis is only legal in Medical or recreational states, while CBD hemp oil is legal in all 50 states under the 2014 US Farm Bill. While it may not be able to treat all conditions it has been known to assist with a variety of medical conditions including anxiety, depression and acute pain.

The Benefits of the Whole Plant

One of the most important studies relating to Broad Spectrum Hemp oil took place at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Hadassah School in 2015. It compared the performance of a broad spectrum extract with one that contained CBD only. The study concluded that broad spectrum was more effective when fighting pain and inflammation.

While CBD only is somewhat effective, the whole plant extract not only provided faster and better relief, the effects also lasted longer. This is why an increasing number of companies in the CBD industry are selling Broad Spectrum Hemp oil as a rule.

The aforementioned entourage effect is the main reason behind the efficacy of whole plant extracts. There are over 100 ‘identified’ compounds in the cannabis plant. While most of these compounds have their own therapeutic benefit, they combine synergistically to provide a far better performance than any single compound, including CBD. 

People have been known to use CBD to help with conditions such as Gastrointestinal Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Neurological Disorders, PTSD, stress, pain relief and more.

​What Does Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil Contain?

​Cannabinoids

While most readers are probably aware of the impact of THC and CBD on their health, there are plenty of unheralded cannabinoids that offer relief.

Cannabigerol (CBG)

Also known as the ‘stem cell’ cannabinoid, most CBG is transformed into cannabinoids such as CBD and THC by the plant. As a result, most processed plants have a low level of CBG.

Cannabinol (CBN)

The degradation of THC leads to CBN. While there is usually a low amount of it in the fresh plant, the decarboxylation process typically raises the level of CBN. It offers a slight psychoactive effect and has a greater affinity for the CB2 receptor compared to the CB1 receptor.

Cannabichromene (CBC)

It is probably the least studied ‘major’ cannabinoid even though it is rather abundant in certain marijuana strains. As such, there isn’t enough data available to suggest it offers the same remarkable benefits as THC and CBD. However, the research that is available suggests that CBC may have antidepressant, pain relieving, and anti-anxiety effects.

​Lesser known cannabinoids include:

  • ​Cannabicyclol (CBL)
  • Cannabitriol (CBT)
  • Cannabicitran (CBT)
  • Cannabifuran (CBF)

​Terpenes

Terpenes are chemicals that give the cannabis plant its unique scent. Even in tiny amounts, terpenes work extremely well with cannabinoids to heal the body. Here are some well-known terpenes:​

  • Limonene: This stress reliever also helps boost your mood. You can even rely on it to assist with gastric flux issues.
  • Pinene: It could potentially improve your memory and boost alertness. It is also anti-inflammatory.
  • Linalool: This has a sedative effect and works to help patients with depression, insomnia, and stress.
  • Caryophyllene: This terpene is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps relieve the symptoms of pain. It is also useful against insomnia.
  • Humulene: This is another pain-relieving terpene which has antibacterial properties and also works as an appetite suppressant.

​Vitamins & Minerals

Broad Spectrum Hemp oil contains vitamins A, C, & E along with complex B vitamins such as niacin, riboflavin, and thiamine. An increasing number of people don’t consume beta-carotene, but it is abundant in broad spectrum oil. Crucial minerals contained in this oil include zinc, potassium, iron, calcium, and phosphorus.

Essential Fats & Protein

If all of the above wasn’t enough, Broad Spectrum Hemp oil contains up to 20 amino acids including the nine essential ones. Essential fatty acids such as Omega 3 and Omega 6, which help promote better heart health, are included in the optimal 3:1 ratio. Hemp oil is even a good source of protein which helps repair and build tissues.

​Final Thoughts on Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil

Although it may be better to consume CBD oil than nothing at all, it may not offer you the same range of positive effects as Broad Spectrum Hemp oil. You still receive an adequate amount of CBD, but you also consume dozens of beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes. As a result, your body will receive more than enough vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.
