Full Spectrum CBD Oil

CBD oil seems all the craze these days, but there's a lot of terms floating around that you, as a customer, might not quite understand. What is CBD oil? What does full spectrum mean? What’s the difference between CBD oil and CBD tinctures? That’s where we come in. At oHHo we care about our customers and want to keep them happy, but also informed. So we have put together this brief article so you can better understand the full spectrum CBD oil we offer and how it can benefit you.


What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is a blend of CBD extract mixed into some sort of inert carrier oil. This carrier oil could be something like coconut oil or hemp seed oil and is just used to hold the CBD extract and provide an easy way for application. This is slightly different from CBD tinctures. In CBD tinctures, high-proof alcohol is used as a solvent to extract the natural compounds of a cannabis plant. The alcohol provides a bitter taste, so often tinctures are mixed with other flavoring or sweetners. Due to this, most often you will instead encounter CBD oils. The tinctures you do see are many times simply mislabeled CBD oils.


What does full spectrum mean?

There are three types of cannabidiol, or CBD: CBD isolate, full spectrum, and broad spectrum. CBD isolate is the cannabinoid on its own. Often this is sold as a powered crystal that can be put into food or drink. Full spectrum CBD on the other hand is an extract containing other beneficial compounds of the cannabis plant, such as terpenes and other cannabinoids. Research shows that this fuller spectrum of compounds allows for a greater effectiveness within your body. Broad spectrum is the same as full spectrum, but it doesn’t contain any amount of THC. Full spectrum has a small percentage of THC, but less than 0.3% and not nearly enough to get you high.


What are the benefits?

The benefits of full spectrum CBD oil cover a wide range of variety. It is used to treat ailments such as insomnia, anxiety, and depression, but is also used for people to simply focus better or stress less. We offer oil tailored to individual issues, experiment with different ones and find out what helps you best.
