This short article will display to you what factors must be considered and which type of oil is going to best suit your needs.
We understand the confusion surrounding which CBD is best for you and your needs, or for those you care for. When it comes to CBD types, there are three categories to choose from; full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and ISO-cannabinoid (isolate). Each has different benefits, and each helps with specific health needs.
CBD supports and interacts with a system within the body called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), this system regulates a critical range of bodily functions. The Endocannabinoid System is called this because our bodies produce endocannabinoids similar to the same cannabinoids found in hemp. Even when a mother nurses her newborn child, the mother’s milk contains endocannabinoids that the baby receives. These endocannabinoids help the baby to relax and find a state of bliss. One of the endocannabinoids our bodies make is “Anandamide,” which means “bliss” in Sanskrit. Therefore, a supplementation of cannabinoids into your day-to-day can help you find a state of bliss or homeostasis, naturally.
“CBD is being used as a specific therapy for a number of diverse medical conditions—particularly pain and inflammatory disorders, in addition to anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders. A large percentage of respondents indicate that CBD treats their condition(s) effectively in the absence of conventional medicine and with nonserious adverse effects.”NCBI
Full-Spectrum CBD (<.3% THC)
Full-spectrum CBD is exactly as it sounds; it contains all the phytochemicals found naturally in the hemp plant. Including CBD, THC, minor cannabinoids like CBG, CBN, CBC, terpenes, flavonoids, and essential fatty acids derived from the hemp plant. Each full-spectrum product contains the compliant amount of THC, 0.3% or lower levels, which does not provoke a high feeling.
CBD and THC share an incredible synergy, and even in fractional amounts, powerful magic takes place. This phenomenon is called the Entourage Effect. The term “entourage effect” came from Mechoulam and Shimon Ben-Shabat in a cannabinoid study from 1999. In the study, they suggest that this phenomenon explains why botanical drugs (containing the entire spectrum of compounds within a plant) can sometimes be more effective than the plant’s isolated components.
However, full-spectrum poses the risk of causing a positive drug test even in minuscule amounts of THC.
“Such observations support the hypothesis of greater efficacy for Cannabis extracts combining multiple anticonvulsant components, such as CBD, THC, THCA, THCV, CBDV, linalool, and even caryophyllene.”NCBI
Broad-Spectrum CBD (THC Free)
Broad-spectrum CBD is a great choice when choosing a type of CBD because it has all of those significant plant compounds, but we’ve completely removed the THC for those consumers that may be leery of THC.
The HMB team has found a solution to getting the benefits of THC without having THC in the product. Beta-caryophyllene is a terpene/cannabinoid found in the hemp plant that also modulates the CB2 receptor similarly to THC. HMB adds a liberal amount of beta-caryophyllene to each product to enhance the therapeutic benefits of the products. We are giving you more of the Entourage Effect without the presence of THC.
ISO-Cannabinoid CBD (THC Free)
ISO-cannabinoid CBD has the most studies of all the phytocannabinoids because researchers can “isolate” the CBD molecule and control the study parameters. Most studies show that ISO-cannabinoid CBD may help with psychosis, Parkinson’s Disease, high blood pressure, anxiety from public speaking or other mood imbalances, chronic pain, and more. With its broad applicable uses, CBD can help you find the balance you have searched for.
There is zero possibility of having a positive drug test from this isolated version of CBD. All HMB’s ISO-cannabinoid CBD products contain beta-caryophyllene. Beta-caryophyllene helps to engage the CB2 receptor without THC. Therefore, our ISO-cannabinoid gives you a similar Entourage Effect that you would get from a full-spectrum CBD.
“Several experimental in vitro and in vivo studies have shown that CBD has a broad range of therapeutic applications, displaying anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties, anti-psychotic, analgesic, and anti-epileptic effects, among others.”NCBI
Which is Best for You?
No matter the hemp oil type, you will see the remarkable benefits whether you have a severe health condition or not. Remember, our bodies are designed to support external cannabinoids, especially considering the toxic inflammatory overload our minds and bodies endure daily.
