"THC Free"

     As the use of CBD products grows, many consumers are finding themselves having to make the choice between "THC Free" products made with CBD Isolate, or products made with Full Spectrum CBD Oil that may contain < 0.3% THC.  You may find yourself asking, " If CBD can provide the relief I am looking for, why do I need THC? I am not trying to get high!"
     Even though the stigma behind cannabis is slowly lifting, many consumers are still skeptical to try a product that contains even a small amount of the psychoactive chemical found in marijuana. However, it is important to understand the limitations of CBD Isolate and the benefits of consuming CBD in its natural full spectrum setting.
     While this debate can often go down a confusing rabbit hole of clinical studies and scientific language, Here are some of the basics:
  • CBD Isolate is only effective within a specific range of dosing, and particularly as an inhalant in the form of CBD vaporizers. This is due to the body's limited ability to bind to the CBD molecule without the help of THC and other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. This means that increasing the dose or taking additional doses will not increase its effect in the body
  • THC and other cannabinoids such as CBG and CBC activate Cannabinoid receptors in the brain and aid in the CBD molecules ability to bind to these receptors. This is commonly known as the entourage effect.
  • This entourage effect is achieved with only the smallest amount of THC (<0.3%) and will not result in any psychoactive effects. In other words, you will not get high from consuming products with less than 0.3% THC.
  • In addition to aiding the CBD molecules ability to bind to receptors in the brain, Full Spectrum CBD Oil contains all of the CBD molecule's friends and family members, in their original ratios from the hemp plant, just as nature intended. These include CBD, CBG, CBC, and THC, as well as a host of terpenes (essential oils found in plants that provide aroma and taste as well as physiological effects like inflammation control and dopamine production). Each one has unique properties and work together to provide a wide array of health benefits.
