Rather than isolate that one compound, at Synchronicity we see the plant as a whole, and the way the various compounds work together to create a more effective and higher quality hemp oil is what we’re most interested in creating and sharing with the world. This approach allows the body to access the full range of beneficial compounds including phytocannabinoids, terpenes, polyphenols, flavonoids, fatty acids, and other potentially healthful benefits.
Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products can deliver a variety of wellness benefits. Here are some Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Oil suggestions
What is lipid infused hemp oil?
Industrial hemp is classified as the non-psychoactive cannabis sativa plant and is grown legally in over 25 states under the Federal Farm Bill Section 7606. Industrial hemp plants must be inspected and certified as such by the state in which they are grown.
This article explains what CBN (Cannabinol) is and examines its potential in treating insomnia, inflammation, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and glaucoma.
Harsh extraction processes requiring some combination of high pressure, high heat, and chemical solvents can cause damage to cell walls in the hemp and potentially leave behind residual solvents in the finished oil. This is not ideal for anyone’s health goals.
While CBD wasn’t discovered until 1940, people have benefitted from this key cannabis ingredient for thousands of years. The ancient Chinese used cannabis-infused tea to assist with memory and treat diseases such as gout and malaria. 3 It was also used by other civilizations such as the ancient Indians to treat pain, insomnia, and even gastrointestinal disorders.
Regardless of your condition, it’s best to start out with small amounts of CBD and increase slowly until you find the optimal amount. But before that, make sure to visit with your practitioner first to find out if CBD is a good option for you—especially if you have a serious medical condition or are taking medications.
What exactly is CBD?
Research also shows that many other cannabinoids in whole-plant CBD have beneficial properties. Cannibinol (CBN), for instance, is known to help with sleep, and cannabichromene (CBC) is beneficial for gut health, 5 among other things. And then there’s the more well-known tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Despite its negative side effects, this cannabinoid can be effective at treating serious medical conditions such as cancer and seizures.
Whole plant CBD oil from hemp is now legal in many areas, as long as the THC content does not exceed 0.3%. At this amount, the oil will not get you high. This amount of THC is not likely to show up on a drug test, unless you take a considerable amount of it. If you are concerned about testing positive, you may want to opt for a broad-spectrum CBD oil that has the THC removed just to be 100% safe.
While these and other cannabinoids can be beneficial on their own, they have been found to be even more effective when combined together. The compounds work together synergistically in the body, which would explain why the body is able to utilize whole-plant CBD better than the isolate form. Because of this synergy, a broad-spectrum CBD oil with the THC removed will not have as many benefits compared to the whole-plant oil.
