20 Nov Full Spectrum CBD : How PearlCBD Products Maximize the “Entourage Effect”
With so many variations of CBD products and formulations on the market, many consumers feel overwhelmed by the abundance of options and underwhelmed by the availability of education. CBD isolate, broad spectrum CBD, and full spectrum CBD are the most common forms of CBD found in products on the market today, however not all CBD is created equal.
PearlCBD’s entire line of premium CBD products feature full spectrum CBD derived from organically grown hemp, containing less than 0.3% THC. This means that there is not enough THC to induce psychoactive effects or show up on a drug test, yet enough THC for effectiveness beyond a placebo effect. Full spectrum contains all the phytocannabinoids found in the cannabis plant in nature, rather than just CBD (Cannabidiol).
Full spectrum products are associated with maximizing the “entourage effect”, which refers to increasing the effectiveness by having over 100 different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant (including CBD and THC) work synergistically. This is thought to be more effective than CBD isolate, which only contains the isolated CBD molecule. In simple terms, the “entourage effect” can be explained as the benefit over isolation of a specific cannabinoid, allowing Cannabidiol (aka CBD) to change the other cannabinoids in hemp to work together favorably and for our benefit.
