Full spectrum CBD oils – often referred to as ‘whole plant’ varieties – are extracted in a way that retains many cannabinoids, terpenes, minerals, vitamins, and amino acids which are often lost when producing ‘isolate’ compounds.
Whilst they tend to retain a little more psychoactive THC than standard oils, this still remains well below the UK’s legal limit of 0.2%. These full spectrum oils will not make anyone high, be flagged in drugs testing, or impair driving skills.
This style of oil has been around since the 1970’s and has recently enjoyed a surge in popularity. A growing amount of research suggests that the fabled ‘entourage effect’ – which purports that the dozens of supplementary cannabinoids are essential to help the oil bind into the body successfully – is indeed the case.
Full spectrum CBD oils are also usually harvested from the finest quality organic hemp, extracted using only eco-friendly CO2-based techniques, and available in a wide variety of strengths.
