CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the many powerful (and well-known) cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis that is known to help the body and mind in a variety of ways. These cannabinoids bind to receptors in the body's Endocannabinoid System, or ECS, which regulates many physiological processes such as appetite, sleep, digestion, mood, memory, metabolism, neuroprotection, hormones, and heart function.

The main reported CBD benefits are:

  • A sense of calm for focus

  • Relief from anxiety/ stress

  • Help in recovery from exercise-induced inflammation

  • Improved overall sleep, and help going to sleep

It's not difficult to see how CBD has become such a popular compound; after all, everyone has an Endocannabinoid System, and everyone experiences occasional stressors. By developing dependable, high-quality CBD products, Hemplus One helped to establish the CBD market. We employ extraction techniques that capture the "full-spectrum" of the hemp plant from the additional naturally occurring phytocannabinoids and other beneficial plant compounds in our formula.

When looking for a trustworthy CBD, you may come across a number of unfamiliar terms. Adjectives like full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate are currently overused in the market (to name a few). What's the distinction? What do they all mean? To understand that, you must first develop a basic understanding of the extraction procedure.

Hemp extraction procedure

To begin, plant material is reduced to a consistent size in preparation for extraction, and then baked to decarboxylate the cannabinoids. Following testing, the extraction process employs either CO2 or alcohol, depending on the product being produced. The next step is to dilute and blend both hemp extracts with a carrier oil. Each batch is thoroughly tested by a third party before being bottled and packaged.

True definition of full-spectrum

To be considered "full-spectrum," CBD products must contain all of the various compounds found in hemp, such as cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes (more on hemp compounds below). However, if a product is labeled "broad-spectrum," it most likely contains more than a few compounds and, by definition, should contain at least two cannabinoids and one terpene. THC may or may not be present. CBD isolate is at the other end of the scale, having been thoroughly filtered and processed to contain only CBD and no other plant compounds.

What are the advantages of using a full-spectrum hemp extract?

The simple answer is that all of hemp's compounds tend to synergistically work better together. We try to incorporate as many of them as we can into our full-spectrum hemp extracts because research shows that using the entire plant maximizes benefits delivered throughout the body by supplying many of the beneficial components in the original plant.

In addition to naturally occurring fatty acids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other beneficial compounds, hemp can also be used to extract a variety of other cannabinoids, not just CBD. While CBD is often the star of the show, it's worth getting acquainted with some of hemp's other compounds as well.

Here are a few more you might see more of in the near future:

Cannabichromene (CBC): Like CBD, CBC is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid, which means it will not make the consumer feel "high." It is typically found in low concentrations in most Cannabis strains but is regarded as a complementary compound when compared to full-spectrum hemp.

Cannabigerol (CBG): Another important cannabinoid found in hemp, CBG is thought to be a precursor to other cannabinoids such as CBD. According to research, it may have powerful benefits both alone and in combination with other compounds, and it may be a helpful factor in recovering from exercise-induced inflammation. It is typically found in quantities of less than 3% in full-spectrum oils.

Cannabinol (CBN): Although CBN has the potential to be a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid, it is only found in trace amounts in Cannabis. It is another complementary plant compound whose effects are frequently linked to sleep support.

Terpenes: Terpenes are aromatic oils found in hemp and other plants (such as lavender and rosemary) that bind to receptors in the human body and provide a variety of health benefits. Terpenes may also play a role in the Entourage Effect observed in a full-spectrum extract.

Flavonoids: are a type of phytonutrient that acts as a cell messenger and has health-promoting properties. They can also be found in fruits and vegetables, where they act as plant pigments.

To appreciate the benefits of a full-spectrum extract, it's helpful to understand the distinctions and variety of compounds that hemp provides. In other words, it's critical to understand what's in the products you buy, beyond just the CBD content.
