CBD (cannabidiol) products are slowly but surely taking their place in society. They have long since ceased to be just “that stoner”, but have their place in the possible support of physical well-being and a healthy lifestyle. Anyone who deals with CBD oil for the first time will quickly find that there are a lot of different things. CBD full-spectrum oil, CBD broad-spectrum, or other cosmetics …
We want to help you find the perfect CBD oil for you.
Special features CBD full spectrum oil
The name says it all: CBD full spectrum oil contains the full spectrum of the hemp plant. The cannabinoids CBD, CBDV, CBDA, GBG, and CBC all have their sphere of activity. And the best part is, they also reinforce each other.
Only the THC is filtered out as best as possible. The products freely available on the German market contain a maximum of 0.02% THC and are therefore not subject to the Narcotics Act.
Special features CBD broad spectrum oil
In the CBD broad spectrum oil, you will also find the complete range of effective cannabinoids. However, in contrast to the full spectrum CBD, it does not contain any terpenes. This means that the CBD broad-spectrum oil is almost completely odorless and tasteless.
What are terpenes?
Put simply, terpenes and terpenoids are the natural taste and smell carriers of natural organisms such as plants. They are responsible for the red color of tomatoes and also for the fruity scent of lemons.
These terpenes each have a very special effect of their own. For example, there is BCP, which can counteract inflammation and also reduce pain. Other terpenes have anti-anxiety effects.
In our case, the terpene BCP (beta-caryophyllene) has a very special property: It activates the CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system. This is the part of our human nervous system in which the body’s cannabinoids or endocannabinoids are located.
These terpenes are contained in the CBD full-spectrum oil, but not in the CBD broad spectrum oil.
CBD full-spectrum oil or CBD broad spectrum oil?
After a short excursion into the chemistry and biology of our body, you are now back at the beginning of your question. CBD full-spectrum oil or CBD broad spectrum oil, which is better for me?
In a nutshell, one can say that CBD Broadband Oil only contains cannabinoids. It is almost tasteless and odorless. If you want to do something good for your body with cannabinoids, but would like to do without other ingredients, the CBD broad-spectrum oil is the right choice for you.
CBD full-spectrum oil, on the other hand, is characterized by the fact that these terpenes have NOT been filtered out, and thus a different spectrum of activity is sought. It has the typical taste and smell of hemp, which is not for everyone.
In the beginning, choosing the right product is not always easy. We recommend that you just feel your way and find out which product has the best benefit for you individually. CBD can promote a healthy lifestyle.
