CBD Oil has taken the health market by storm for sure, and “full spectrum” has become the desired product for many… but what exactly is in your full spectrum CBD oil? Well, to put it simply; typically a plethora of cannabinoids and terpenes! In addition to the CBD of course, see below for a list of the most common cannabinoids found in CBD oils today.
- CBN (cannabinol), which could relieve pain, insomnia, and inflammation, as well as prevent seizures and stimulate appetite
- CBG (cannabigerol), which could soothe irritable bowel disease, treat glaucoma, protect against certain brain diseases, and slow the growth of cancer cells
- CBC (cannabichromene), which could reduce pain and inflammation, protect brain cells, and slow the growth of cancer
- THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin), which can reduce panic attacks, stimulate appetite, and protect brain cells.
Also included in a full spectrum CBD oil will be THC, this is the well known psychoactive cannabinoid found primarily in the marijuana plant, but ONLY found in trace amounts (<0.3%) in the hemp plant.
Keep in mind, each hemp crop will have its own unique set of cannabinoids, which will determine its overall effect on the body. Check with your CBD company for their certificate of analysis (COA) to see exactly what is inside your CBD oil. Read through Korabis Wellness COAs here: https://korabis.com/learn/lab-results/
