Why Full-Spectrum CBD has THC (and that’s a good thing)
Does full-spectrum CBD have THC? We will answer all your questions in this blog!
At Danodan, we make full-spectrum CBD formulas, because we believe that full-spectrum CBD provides the greatest benefits to you and is the most natural way of taking CBD.
So what does full spectrum mean? Does full-spectrum CBD have THC in it?
What are some of the benefits of full-spectrum CBD compared to other types of CBD?
Let’s find out!
What are CBD and THC
CBD (short for cannabidiol) is the main cannabinoid present in our full-spectrum hemp oils, but there are many others as well. That is because we use whole organic hemp flowers with a natural array of compounds, including cannabinoids, plant chemicals, and terpenes.
THC (short for delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of hundreds of cannabinoids found in hemp and marijuana, two members of the cannabis family. Generally speaking, hemp is lower in THC, while marijuana has more THC. In elevated amounts, THC causes the ‘high’ that made it famous.
The level of THC depends on the type of CBD product, from full spectrum to broad spectrum to isolate. But all widely available CBD products must have less than 0.3% THC by weight.
At Danodan, we share every product’s test results, so you can be confident in what you’re putting in your body. You can see our Lab Results here.
Different Types of CBD Products
There are several different types of CBD products available in the market today. Full-spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, CBD isolate – all of these can be found on retail shelves. These different types of CBD refer to the variety of compounds contained in the product.
What does full-spectrum CBD mean? Full-spectrum CBD means a CBD product that contains more than just CBD – all of the natural parts of hemp, with nothing removed.
Hopefully, full-spectrum CBD is also made in a way that preserves and delivers all of those various compounds into the final product (but that isn’t always the case).
At Danodan, our process is designed to gently and effectively extract as many of these beneficial compounds as possible.
We infuse our organic hemp flowers into organic vegetable glycerin, which is a natural and effective way to extract the widest variety of plant compounds. Essentially, you get the fullest spectrum possible!
Also, glycerin is absorbed in our bodies more easily than oil. Oil is the most common liquid used for other full-spectrum CBD products, but many people have a hard time absorbing oil, which can mean you don’t get all of the CBD you take.
Glycerin is different, and it absorbs quickly and easily. That is why we consistently hear from our customers that they feel real benefits from Danodan Hemp Flower Infusions when other brands haven’t worked for them.
Some other brands try and reconstruct full-spectrum CBD oil from different isolates, mixing them together. While this may be better than just CBD isolate, it reminds us of Frankenstein’s monster – building something out of different parts doesn’t always get you the best results!
What about broad-spectrum CBD? Broad-spectrum CBD refers to CBD products that contain CBD as well as some other cannabinoids and plant compounds like terpenes. However, broad-spectrum CBD does not usually contain THC. This may be important for some people who are drug tested for their jobs. Even though THC levels in CBD products are federally required to be very low – below 0.3% – it is possible that it may show up on a drug test. But, as we will learn, even that small amount of THC can help make your CBD oil more effective.
What is CBD Isolate? CBD isolate refers to a product that contains only CBD, often in unnaturally high concentrations.
To make these products, CBD is extracted from hemp using intense industrial practices involving harsh solvents and chemicals.
The CBD is then crystallized into a tasteless, odorless white powder, which can be mixed into oil or suspended in water at very high potencies.
Unfortunately, CBD isolate does not contain any other cannabinoids or natural plant compounds, all of which carry their own benefits as well.
How CBD And THC Work Together, And Why It’s Important To Have Both In Your Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
Many people who use THC isolate report bad experiences, like anxiety and paranoia. This is very common because of how THC interacts with our ECS. Is full-spectrum THC better? Many researchers believe so.
When CBD is present in THC products, it is believed to lessen the negative effects. This is part of The Entourage Effect. The Entourage Effect is what scientists call the way that hemp and cannabis behave when all of the natural compounds are present.
Along those same lines, The Entourage Effect is very true for CBD products as well. Researchers believe that CBD is more effective when there is a small amount of THC and other cannabinoids in a product as well. This amount can be very small and still be effective.
This is a great example of why full-spectrum CBD is better than isolate. Not only will you have more effective products, often at lower doses, but you will avoid bad experiences as well.
Orange Juice vs. Vitamin C – A Similar Story
Comparing full-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate is very similar to comparing orange juice and, say, a vitamin C pill.
There are hundreds or even thousands of different compounds in an orange that are healthy. When you eat an orange, you’re getting vitamin C, fiber, folate, B1, and dozens of other vitamins and minerals. Also, you’re getting the delicious flavor of a fresh orange.
When you take a vitamin C supplement, you’re only getting vitamin C.
A serving of Danodan is like a glass of fresh orange juice, with full-spectrum CBD compounds, natural flavor and aroma. It is definitely not a tasteless odorless white powder!
What is Full-Spectrum Hemp?
Full-spectrum hemp is hemp that contains the complete variety of naturally occurring compounds, including full spectrum cannabinoids, terpenes, and phytochemicals.
Hemp comes in many different types with different names. While most people may think of these as ‘strains,’ they are actually referred to as ‘cultivars’ (in biology, ‘cultivar’ is for plants, whereas ‘strain’ is for smaller levels of biology, like mold or viruses, for example).
Different cultivars will vary in the variety and levels of compounds they contain. Still, full-spectrum hemp will be rich in compounds beyond CBD.
At Danodan, we use four different cultivars of hemp in our products – Pear Blossom,
Oregon Guava, Sour Pineapple, and’78 Llamas x AC/DC. (Fun names, huh?) By using multiple different cultivars, we expand the diversity and variety of compounds in our finished product.
What Does Full-Spectrum CBD Do?
Full-spectrum CBD does a number of different things in our bodies, which all relate to our endocannabinoid system (ECS). Our ECS regulates many functions in our body, from mood to digestion, energy to sleep, and much more.
Full-spectrum CBD benefits your ECS, which keeps you feeling balanced and stable. Many people who take full-spectrum CBD say they don’t feel anything in particular, they just feel good overall, like everything is going a little more smoothly.
For many people, the ECS can become imbalanced. This can mean you may have some things that work too hard, while others don’t work hard enough. Your body may have a hard time transitioning to sleep, while you also have a hyper-sensitive stress response.
By supporting balance in your ECS, you can help many activities in your life go smoother. And full-spectrum CBD benefits your ECS by helping it be happy and healthy!
What is Full-Spectrum THC?
Just like full-spectrum CBD, full-spectrum THC refers to a product that contains more than just THC. So full-spectrum THC would also contain full spectrum cannabinoids, and not just isolated THC.
Some companies make a full-spectrum cannabis oil that may have higher quantities of THC than are currently allowed by the federal government. Such products are only available in states that have medical and/or recreational cannabis programs. You cannot order these products online for delivery across state lines.
The hemp that we use in our formulas contains a very small amount of THC. This makes sure that we are following federal regulations, making a safe product that you can use anytime, and we are creating a whole flower infusion that reflects the real benefits of hemp.
Because our products use full-spectrum hemp and contain very low amounts of THC, you can order Danodan from anywhere in the US. And with fast, free delivery on every order, you will likely have your new favorite CBD in a matter of days!
Does Full-Spectrum CBD Have THC? Here’s Why Full-Spectrum CBD Benefits You The Most
Danodan makes only full-spectrum CBD oils based in organic vegetable glycerin. Our infusions provide you with the most natural and effective results, because our products contain the full spectrum of goodness in organic hemp flowers.
Broad spectrum CBD and CBD isolate use different methods to remove natural parts from full-spectrum CBD, so they don’t offer the same level of benefits and support.
For the maximum benefit from your CBD oil, choose Danodan for a formula that contains full-spectrum CBD and absorbs easily to get you the relief you need.
