Besides the stereotypical view of using the Cannabis or Marijuana, there seems to be much more uses to it that meets the eye, or as I would like to put it, more than meets the lung. Cannabis plant seems to have been discovered some 1500 years ago in the Asian continent and has a long history of uses and benefits. Though the world is not new to all the stereotypical views of marijuana and it’s so called benefits, Cannabis plants and its close cousin, Hemp, which is more associated with the industrial use than medical, are mostly known to the masses to be a psychoactive compound, otherwise known to give you the High. This is however a limited perspective that one might have on the uses of this plant. Many pharmacologists express their concern that besides cannabis having the potential to cure abnormalities in the voluntary movements of human body, which in medical term is called dyskinesia, it is still not available in most parts of the world. Other benefits include treating anxiety, increase in appetite, besides having a therapeutic value overall. Now let us jump in to what the plant and its products offer to its users.
Nearly 40% of the extracts from Hemp plants contain more than at least a 100 cannabinoid constituents. One among those is the Cannabidiol (CBD) and its products which has a big market kicking in. Over the past five to six decades CBD and its products have started to emerge in the pharmaceutical market. There seems to be a rich variety of oils called CBD oils which are gaining popularity among people. With a number of states in the USA legalizing medical marijuana and with a few more states and countries planning to follow, the market for these products are almost in quick rise.
A full spectrum CBD is a modern marketing term used to sell CBD products that basically contain all the components that the hemp plant has to offer. These plants contain several hundred components which have a number of benefits to the user. It can be taken in many ways. One can smoke the plant which mostly gives the TCH which is responsible for the high that one experiences and when one tries to ingest all of these components into his system at once, he experiences what is called the Entourage effect; an effect that makes one experience a psychoactive state of being.
Full Spectrum CBD is hitting the markets effectively as they contain every component that the cannabis plant has to offer. On the other hand yet, there are people who tend to avoid full spectrum to prefer CBD isolates, which unlike full spectrum, gives only specific extracts of the plant like the terpenes, fatty acids etc. The reasons may include avoiding the temporary psychoactive state of being or a fear towards trying it. One has to however consider many things before buying a full spectrum CBD product. Mainly one has to check if it is free of pesticides or other additives and see whether its lab tested, to check whether it has all the individual components that you are looking for.
