Full-spectrum CBD contains all cannabis plant compounds, it may have a more potent effect than pure Isolate CBD. CBD’s health benefits may be more prominent when multiple compounds from the cannabis plant are present. This is what researchers call the ‘entourage effect.’
With a range of reported health benefits, uses for full-spectrum CBD include:
muscle spasm relief
treatment for psychotic disorders
CBD is just one of many different molecules unique to the Cannabis plant. CBD oil generally contains low levels of the cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), less than .3%, which is the compound that produces the ‘high.’
People report using CBD oil for a variety of medical conditions without experiencing the intoxicating effects of THC.
Unlike THC, CBD does not bind readily to cannabinoid receptors. These receptors are key components of the human endocannabinoid system, which plays a crucial role in the central nervous system.
Endocannabinoids are signaling molecules that help regulate various processes, such as pain, memory, mood, immunity and stress.
CBD does, however, interact with other receptors, such as serotonin and opioid receptors. It might also boost levels of naturally occurring endocannabinoids, which may explain its seemingly broad range of uses.
