The Origins of CBD: Where Does CBD Come From?
In order to fully understand what the term “full-spectrum” means when referring to CBD, it's important to first cover the makeup of the plant it comes from. These plants are composed of a variety of chemical compounds known as plant cannabinoids. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of these cannabinoids. The cannabinoid acid called Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) is converted into CBDA by an enzyme called cannabidiolic acid synthase. When CBDA is exposed to heat energy, it loses its acidic property and becomes CBD. This process is called decarboxylation. It is usually done by heating the cannabidiol manually, using an artificial heat source. CBD plants must go through every one of these chemical reactions before the beneficial compounds, such as CBD, can be yielded.
Full-Spectrum CBD Starts On the Farm
At Wildwood Herbal, we believe that nature is the best farmer. Our full-spectrum CBD starts from a genetic selection of plants that are then grown on our farm. Each strain is then evaluated for its cannabinoid profile and terpenes. We tend to each plant with care and expertise to ensure the highest quality end-product is produced. Additionally, all of our products are manufactured in-house from seed to sale. This allows us to supervise each step of the process to ensure our high standards of quality are met.
Wildwood Herbal is fully licensed to provide you with the peace of mind that your CBD will be of the highest quality. Our full-spectrum CBD is produced in a way that is completely free of unwanted chemicals or contaminants. We personally decarboxylate our CBD oil, so you know it’s done right! Some methods of decarboxylation can damage sensitive compounds such as terpenes, essential oils, and flavonoids, but our method preserves these. Each product we sell is manufactured in our ISO 7 cleanroom and backed by third-party testing, confirming that our CBD is THC compliant with federal regulations.
What is Full-Spectrum CBD?
In addition to CBD, there are many other beneficial cannabinoid compounds that are produced by CBD plants. A few of the most notable are CBG, CBN, CBC, and THC. Full-spectrum CBD will contain a multitude of these additional compounds, as well as terpenes and essential oils. The combination of all these components has been shown to work synergistically, resulting in a more effective CBD end-product. All of our CBD products at Wildwood Herbal are full-spectrum, making them highly effective while containing less than 0.3% of THC, so that you can enjoy these benefits without getting high.
Each cannabinoid has its own unique benefits, so we carefully select plants with the ideal combinations of cannabinoids to use for our full-spectrum CBD products.
The additional cannabinoids and terpenes present in full-spectrum CBD enhance the positive effects of CBD through the “entourage effect”, meaning they work better together. Our master-crafted full-spectrum CBD contains the perfect blend of cannabinoids and terpenes to provide you with the most powerful and potent CBD products. The final result? A full-spectrum CBD that you can trust to be safe, beneficial, and as effective as possible!
What Are the Benefits of Different Cannabinoids in Our Full-Spectrum CBD?
Our full-spectrum CBD contains many beneficial cannabinoids including:
Cannabinol: Also known as CBN, this cannabinoid has a sedative effect and is beneficial for sleep.
Cannabigerol: Also known as CBG, it acts on the endocannabinoid system to influence serotonin release which can help with mood disorders such as anxiety. Studies suggest it can also inhibit cell growth in cancer cells; therefore slowing tumor development.
Cannabichromene: Also called CBC, has been shown to prevent pain and inflammation associated with collagen-induced osteoarthritis. It has also been shown to have anti-tumor properties similar to CBG.
Tetrahydrocannabinol: Otherwise called THC, full-spectrum CBD includes a legal dose (less than 0.3%) of this psychoactive compound that provides relief from pain without getting you high.
These cannabinoids work together to create a synergistic effect that allows full-spectrum CBD to work at full capacity and produce the most beneficial effects possible.
How is Full-Spectrum CBD Better than Other Types of CBD?
There are three main types of CBD that are set apart by their composition: isolate, full-spectrum, and broad-spectrum.
CBD isolate is pure CBD and contains none of the other extracts from the CBD plant. The absence of these additional cannabinoids results in weaker, less noticeable effects on the body. Also, it is usually sold as a powder, meaning it is highly processed.
Broad-spectrum CBD is similar to full-spectrum CBD, but during the extraction process, it is stripped of THC. While full-spectrum CBD includes legal amounts of THC that won't give you a high, it still provides beneficial effects such as pain relief.
Full-spectrum CBD is more natural and less processed than CBD isolate. Because our full-spectrum CBD is an organic product, there are no unwanted ingredients or chemicals, so you can rest assured that our CBD is safe to consume.
