Smokey’s Full Spectrum CBD Tincture – Peppermint with A-Pinene
Alpha Pinene terpene is an aromatic compound commonly found in cannabis that smells a lot like–you guessed it–a forest of pine trees. But pinene may bring more to a strain’s experience than just flavor. Terpenes like pinene are fragrant oils secreted in cannabis trichomes, and while they originally developed as an adaptive protection against predators, these compounds offer us humans a variety of potential benefits. And, fun fact: pinene can also be found in conifer trees, orange peels, turpentine, pine needles, rosemary, dill, basil, and parsley.
What is Full-Spectrum CBD?
Full-spectrum CBD oils are the most common form of cannabis use for medical purposes. By definition, full-spectrum CBD is derived from cannabis plants that include THC, the hallucinogenic element in marijuana plants. Unlike CBD isolate products, CBD full spectrum is made up of hundreds of cannabinoids embedded in the cannabis plant.
When bundled together (a scenario known as the “entourage effect”), full spectrum CBD can create a powerful CBD treatment that surpasses so-called CBD isolate products, which work individually to treat various medical issues. Those elements include healing properties like protein, fiber, fatty acids, and rich essential vitamins.
In that regard, full-spectrum CBD oil is widely credited with helping treat serious medical conditions like anxiety, depression, muscle pain, migraines, and other adverse medical conditions.
That’s where the entourage effect comes into play. Gathered together, as a whole plant filled with a wide array of cannabinoids, users can avail themselves of a full menu of cannabinoid compounds.
The Entourage Effect
CBD on its own (CBD Isolate) can be beneficial, but CBD’s therapeutic effects are stronger when combined with other cannabis compounds, including terpenes, flavonoids, and lesser-known cannabinoids. This theory is called the entourage effect.
Broad-spectrum CBD does include other compounds, but the THC found only in full-spectrum products may amp up the anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits of CBD.
Keep in mind that with very low levels of THC (less than 0.3 percent), full-spectrum CBD still shouldn’t cause you to feel “high.”
Full-spectrum CBD can be beneficial due to the entourage effect, which theorizes that CBD is more effective when taken alongside other cannabis compounds.
What Are the Benefits of Full-Spectrum CBD?
By combining various cannabinoids into a singled, bundled treatment, full-spectrum CBD’s “team effect” lasts long when used for different ailments, thus giving users more effective and sustainable treatment options.
Full-spectrum CBD includes at least 113 known cannabinoids, all created inside a single hemp plant. More and more cannabis product developers are extracting the most robust parts of the plant and using them for various medical treatments, especially the plant’s fatty acids and hemp oils, which are in high demand for cannabis products.
It’s 100% Natural
Full-spectrum CBD comes naturally, right from Mother Nature. Most full-spectrum CBD products are non-genetically modified, don’t come with pesticides or chemicals, and are all organic.
No Marijuana High
Full-spectrum CBD has an extremely low percentage of less than 0.3% THC.
Full-spectrum CBD offers pain relief as many of its components target different pain triggers. CBD acts on your body’s endocannabinoid receptors which helps reduce chronic pain. Full-spectrum CBD also reduces the inflammatory process, which reduces pain.
Managing Anxiety and Depression
Depression and anxiety are common in our hectic modern world. Both can have significant effects on your mental and physical health. They can leave you unable to deal with your daily life, impacting your digestion, blood pressure especially during a pandemic.
Breakouts often happen when you experience hormonal imbalances. Full-spectrum CBD may reduce inflammation, control sebum production and minimize clogged glands.
Stress can cause high blood pressure. High blood pressure is linked with many health risks, including heart attacks and strokes. But full-spectrum CBD may reduce anxiety and stress, in turn lowering your blood pressure.
Cannabinoids – There are more than 100 cannabinoids, including CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD and THC are responsible for the therapeutic and psychoactive effects of cannabis products. While CBD doesn’t cause impairment, THC has an intoxicating effect.
Terpenes – Cannabis has more than 150 terpenes, which affect the plant’s fragrance (think: what makes an orange smell citrusy). Terpenes can also have therapeutic benefits (think: how lavender has a calming effect).
Flavonoids – Cannabis includes about 20 different flavonoids. Flavonoids are found in all kinds of plants, including fruits, vegetables, grains, and more. Like terpenes, they have therapeutic effects. The flavonoids found in cannabis have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and neuroprotective properties.
