If you’re new to hemp and cannabis or you’ve been here for a while, somewhere along the way you’ve probably heard folks talk about “the spectrum.” When cannabis is extracted, it can be presented in three major forms: full spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate. With so many options, I’m sure you have a few questions. How do you know which one to use? Which one is going to give you the best benefits? How do you know where to get the best quality CBD products?
When it comes to knowing which spectrum is which, and what has the best benefits, first you need to look at what each form contains:
Isolates, well, are just that. They are isolated cannabinoids, such as CBD or THC that have been extracted from the cannabis plant and separated from all the other compounds like terpenes and flavonoids. Isolates give only the benefit from a single cannabinoid that has been separated, instead of all the cannabinoids together. When using isolates, it can obviously limit your ability to see any extra positive effects from the other cannabinoids.
Broad-spectrum is most of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids together, but without THC and not necessarily in the same concentration found in the plant it was extracted from. So, like isolates, you do not get all the benefits that the plant has to offer in its natural form. You also have to consider how the plant was extracted to achieve the removal of THC, the manipulation of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, and how trace elements of solvents or chemicals could still be in the final product that is being used.
Knowing who extracts your plants and how are critical to achieving overall health and wellness with cannabis.
Full-spectrum is every cannabinoid, terpene, and flavonoid found in the cannabis plant in its natural state and percentage. This is the most natural form of extract because it does not change anything about the compounds found in the plant, it simply concentrates them. Since you do not have to manipulate the compounds and remove or alter any specific cannabinoid, it allows you to use solvent-less extraction techniques like rosin pressing, dry sifting, or ice water extraction to keep your extracts clean without having to use chemicals like ethanol to refine your oil- resulting in a safe and potent final product free of residuals.
At the end of the day, natural wellness, free from pharmaceuticals is the goal for using cannabis. There are still many things we don’t know about cannabis, but we are learning more and more every day about the amazing plant that cannabis is and its many benefits. Since being as natural as possible is the goal of cannabis use, what better way to use it than full spectrum. The great thing about full-spectrum is it is unaltered, just concentrated, so you get all the positives of every compound found in the plant the way nature intended. At Sweet Sensi we believe in the whole plant, full-spectrum extract, and products. The reason we believe in this form over the rest is it gives you the benefit of all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids in their natural percentages from the plant. In doing so, you can get the ever-desired “entourage effect” or overall feeling of wellness from all of the compounds working symbiotically.
