Full-Spectrum Extracts are More Effective
A new study from the Lautenberg Center for General and Tumor Immunology has fascinating implications for our hemp seed oil products. This study looked at the efficacy of CBD-only extracts versus full-spectrum cannabis extracts (meaning extracts that feature all of the plant’s cannabinoids). The results showed that full-spectrum cannabis extracts, which offer a large percentage of CBD with smaller amounts of other cannabinoids, were more effective than CBD-only extracts at relieving pain and reducing inflammation. It seems that CBD is only effective at a certain dose, while full-spectrum extracts offer better results as the dose increases.
What is the Big Deal About CBD?
CBD is currently being widely researched in the medical community due to its promising anti-inflammatory properties. CBD is becoming more and more intriguing to a wider demographic due to the fact that is doesn’t feature the psychoactive effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This gives it a major advantage over medical marijuana as a treatment for a variety of conditions. CBD recently made the news when the FDA recommended the approval of Epidiolex, a CBD prescription drug designed to treat certain rare forms of epilepsy. As CBD is studied more and more, it is clear that cannabis extracts have incredible promise for treating a variety of conditions.
