What is Broad Spectrum CBD and Why We Chose It? | Tessera Naturals

CBD oil is a common phenomenon in today’s world. It is rare to make through a day without hearing it being mentioned in some capacity. Could be from a neighbor, friend, or a marketer. 

You’re not a stranger to Cannabidiol, but you sometimes have questions that keep bothering you. Most of these are about full-spectrum and isolate and how the two differ.

This article discusses a few of these questions.

What is the meaning of the term ‘full-spectrum”?

This form of CBD is derived from the hemp plant and contains several cannabinoids beyond THC and CBD. Full-spectrum CBD also includes elements of the plant-like terpenes, fatty acids, essential vitamins, and proteins. It’s sometimes called whole plant CBD for the same reason.

We have the CBD isolate. This is the type that contains CBD only and has no identifiable amount of THC- the chemical compound that leads to a “high” among consumers. Isolate is also stripped of other nutritional elements like flavonoids, terpenes, vitamins, and the proteins above.

Which is better; full-spectrum or CBD Isolate?

CBD can be compared to white bread that has been stripped of all the nutrients except the CBD. Every of the hemp plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes are beneficial to the body. They’ve a biochemical effect, and research shows that the nutrients are more useful when working together in what is called the “entourage effect.” It is now proven that full-spectrum CBD is more effective in treating inflammation than the CBD isolate. The elements in the full spectrum are well synergized into the CBD- a perfect combination there.


How do I benefit from Full spectrum CBD?

Does full spectrum CBD contain THC?

Yes, full-spectrum products contain some traces of THC though in minimal proportions. The federal law allows for not more than 0.3% of THC in the full spectrum CBD, and therefore you can be sure it has less effect on your body. However, to be sure of such contents, you have to buy your products from a licensed CBD dispensary.

 Street dealers are not under any regulations, and thus their products could have a high concentration of THC, which might turn out to be harmful.
