About Full Spectrum CBD
To understand CBD and cannabis products one of the most important elements to understand is what a cannabinoid is and how they interact with the human body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system is a part of the mammalian central nervous system. This means that everyone you know, and even your pets, have an ECS that regulates processes in the body. This system exists and is active even in individuals who do not use cannabis.
Research shows that the ECS plays an important role in bodily functions such as injury mitigation and inflammation response, pain, sleep, mood and appetite among others. When the body gets injured, inflammation for example is triggered. This is a process of the ECS working to bring the body back in balance and homeostasis.
We produce natural chemicals known as Endocannabinoids. These endogenous ligands make up two networks of cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2. Studies show that the ECS and these receptors oversee regulation of several physiological conditions and diseases.
CB1 receptors are found in the body’s connective tissue, organs, gonads and throughout the central nervous system. CB2 receptors are dispersed throughout the immune system, the skin and related organs. Both versions are found widely in a range of bodily tissues.
What is a Phytocannabinoid?
The compounds found in hemp plants are similar to the endocannabinoids naturally produced by the bodies allowing them to have health benefits through the ECS. The naturally occurring plant-produced cannabinoids found in Full-Spectrum extract mimic endocannabinoids 2-AG and AEA that are produced by the body.
From seed to soil to oil, it all matters. Our process is anything but basic.
Basic CBD products begin as single-strain cultivar of Cannabidiol (CBD) rich Cannabis sativa L. (hemp) plants. Our plants are grown on nearly 500 acres of lush Colorado soil and USDA Certified Organic farmland. The plants are not genetically modified (Non-GMO) and are grown under the son of Mother Nature with natural, organic farming practices. Our plants and products are completely free of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or chemicals of any kind. Pure, as nature intended.
In an industry that is largely unregulated, it is up to CBD brand’s to establish high standards and hold strong to those. This is why our products are preservative-free and contain absolutely no additives, fillers or non-genetically engineered ingredients. Not only are our plants Non-GMO, so is our finished product.
Our proprietary genetics have been bred and developed since the initial passage of the United States Farm Bill in 2014 that began the revolution and cultivation and production of industrial hemp and hemp-derived CBD products. These phytocannabinoid rich genetics are the foundation for us to create a natural, whole plant cannabis extract that is not only extremely rich in CBD (Cannabidiol) but also significant, detectable amounts of secondary cannabinoids like CBG (Cannabigerol) and CBC (Cannabichromene) and only trace amounts up to 0.3% of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
Cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes work synergistically and with greater effect when they exist together rather than in an isolated state. This process is defined as the Entourage Effect. At Basic CBD we offer the simplest most pure CBD oil on the planet.
We know that the land and plants are the basis for great CBD and our advanced cultivation methods work to ensure the continued development and enrichment of our plant genetics delivering unmatched levels of potency, purity and consistency.
Basic CBD organic hemp plants are grown in the state of Colorado, nourished by the water of the Rocky Mountains and harvested at optimal times for maximum cannabinoid production. With control over the entire farming process and production from seed to shelf, we guarantee that Basic CBD products are of the highest quality. Our farmers are the industry leaders in the organic hemp industry and have been for many years.
At Basic CBD we are truly anything but. Not only are we one of the few brands that utilize a FDA Food Registered Facility for our extraction and production. They hold ISO 9001, ISO 17025 and ISO 22000 certifications from the world’s highest-trusted quality management standard. At Basic CBD, the best is part of the process every step of the way.
Supercritical CO2 Extraction
Supercritical CO2 extraction is utilized to separate the chlorophyll and other plant matter from the CBD rich extract. Supercritical Extraction is not the cheapest way to extract CBD, but it is the best and many of the items found on today’s grocery shelves are created this way.
To make the best Full Spectrum CBD you can not cut any corners. From the farm to the shelf, it all matters. This method of extraction yields a more concentrated formulation than many other methods while also not requiring the use of any harsh chemical solvents. CO2 is food-safe, for example it is what gives your favorite carbonated beverages their fizz. The human body even produces CO2 when we breath!
High quality extraction processes create high quality CBD extract and Full Spectrum CBD Oil. Our products are high in Cannabidiol (CBD) with the presence of minor cannabinoids and trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3% the legal limit). This whole-plant extract and overall composition is called Full Spectrum because it contains the complete array of terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, essential oils and other beneficial plant compounds and phytonutrients found in Cannabis sativa L. (Hemp).
Full Spectrum CBD is synonymous with the “Entourage Effect.” This process, identified by scientists and researchers alike, refers to the increased effectiveness and exponential increase in efficacy of CBD products when the ingredients combine and work synergistically.
Transparency is the key, and that is then validated by two very important things, third-party lab results and customer reviews. The Basic CBD Certificates of Analysis (COA) verify the presence of naturally occurring minor cannabinoids like CBC and CBG in our extract.
Let’s talk further about the spectrum of cannabinoids and the Entourage Effect. Studies involving the Entourage Effect have been a driving factor in CBD’s rise in popularity as well as some of the key findings in the United States government patents relating to cannabis.
When you use Basic CBD’s Full Spectrum products you aren’t just getting a strong, potent serving of Cannabidiol (CBD) as the active ingredient but you are also getting over 100 unique cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and other compounds naturally found in cannabis L. sativa (hemp).
While CBD and THC are the most abundant cannabinoids that are found in cannabis plants, there are many minor cannabinoids that make up the complete spectrum and play a vital role in the effectiveness and efficacy of CBD products.
Below you can learn more about the most common occurring cannabinoids and the role that studies have suggested they play in regulating the Endocannabinoid System and overall bodily functions and processes.
Cannabinoids Found in Full Spectrum CBD
CBD is the primary cannabinoid found in our hemp products and the most abundant cannabinoid compounds found in the hemp plant. Unlike the other major cannabinoid THC, and potentially the most well known, CBD does not give the users any “high” feeling or psychoactive effect that marijuana and cannabis have generally been known for. CBD rather is used by consumers to help promote overall homeostasis in the body and balance the primary functions that are controlled by our Endocannabinoid System.
Many users report finding relief from the stressors and anxiety of everyday life through CBD with a relaxing, calming effect. Others find that CBD helps with pain relief, promoting focus and attention, aiding in appetite, digestive support and more.
THC is the second highest occurring cannabinoid found in hemp. This is the opposite in marijuana where THC is the primary cannabinoid with CBD occurring in minor levels. The legal differentiator between Industrial Hemp and Marijuana is the THC level. To be federally legal and compliant under the US Farm Bill our Full Spectrum CBD products all contain less than 0.3% THC verified by third-party lab tests.
Unlike CBD, THC is psychoactive and is the compound that makes the user feel “high” or euphoric. While Full Spectrum CBD products will contain trace amounts of THC, the total level will always be less than 0.3% of the total. In small amounts, consumers ingesting or using CBD products will not feel any of the psychoactive effects of THC however it’s presence boosted the overall benefits of the product due to the synergistic Entourage Effect.
THC can sound like a scary word but the amount in all of our products is completely legal with Bipartisan support in the US Congress and 2 different United States Presidents confirming this through the Farm Bill of 2014 and Hemp Farming Act of 2018. If a drug test is a concern, it is always recommended to avoid THC regardless of the amount. Basic CBD also produces Zero THC products for those with this zero-tolerance need.
CBG is another minor non-intoxicating cannabinoid just like CBD! In fact, CBG is the parent compound of THC and CBD. This cannabinoid plays an important role acting as a precursor to the three main cannabinoid lines, Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCA), Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA), and Cannabichromenic Acid (CBCA). Enzymes that occur within the cannabis plant break down CBG and convert it into these final compounds.
CBD is a minor cannabinoid that has most recently been studied for its sedative effects and properties. CBN is believed to be a compound that helps generate an overall feeling of relaxation in the user. CBN is also being utilized in sleep focused products to boost deep sleep and restorative properties.
CBC is another of the minor occurring compounds found in cannabis and a popular phytocannabinoid found in Full Spectrum products. This compound bears a structural similarity to other cannabinoids like CBD, THC, CBN and others. CBC and derivatives are abundant cannabinoids in cannabis.
Natural Compounds in Hemp
Terpenes make up a large, diverse class of aromatic compounds found in a wide variety of plants including conifers and widely associated with cannabis due to the cannabis plants high concentration. Terpenes are very aromatic with a strong scent thought by scientists to help project plants that produce them by deterring herbivores.The unique terpene makeup is what gives plants like lavender, juniper, spruce and cannabis their fresh scent. This is also the same scent found in fresh orange peels and blood orange essential oil as well as the essential oils and resins of many fruits, herbs and spices.
Research has begun to discover the benefits that terpenes play in cannabis and their potential benefits. With hundreds of terpenes occurring across various strains and varieties of cannabis there is still much to learn. Not only are researchers working to isolate each terpene, similar to CBD Isolate, they are also studying how the properties work together synergistically reinforcing the Entourage Effect along with their interactions with cannabinoids and their restorative effects.
Terpenes are generally categorized as spicy, sweet, sour or bitter. Changes in terpene varietes can drastically alter the physiological effects of hemp CBD products on a user. While some terpenes are good for energizing and uplifting the body, others are beneficial for relaxation and sedation. Some of the most common terpenes include Myrcene, Linalool, A-Pinene, Limonene, Humulene and Beta-Caryophyllene.
Flavonoids are a group of natural substances that give flavor and are found in fruits, vegetables, roots, stems, flowers, grains and yes, cannabis. The natural products are known for beneficial effects on health with efforts and research underway to isolate and understand the unique flavonoids that exist.
The different cannabinoids and terpenes are some of the most well known compounds in the hemp plant but it is important to remember that more than 200 exist. Flavonoids make up roughly 10% of the compounds in cannabis and over 20 varieties are known to exist.
Cannaflavins are flavonoids found uniquely in cannabis. Much like terpenes, flavonoids aid in how cannabis is not only flavored but reacts in our bodies.
Additional Cannabis Compounds
Cannabis and Full-Spectrum oil also contains a range of essential vitamins and minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, protein and more. Hemp Oil is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E along with B-Complex vitamins niacin, thiamine and riboflavin.
The mineral beneficial compounds found in hemp extract include zinc, potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus and magnesium. Hemp Seed Oil is also rich in heart-healthy amino acids like Omega 3 and Omega 6.
Are All Full Spectrum CBD Oil Products The Same?
If you haven’t picked up yet on the details and important elements that go into making the best CBD Oil here at Basic CBD, the answer is unequivocally NO! Not all Full Spectrum CBD products are the same. The CBD industry is full of cheaply made products which is why the Basic CBD process is of the most importance.
Third-party lab tests for pesticide residue, heavy metals and other soil and farming contaminants including foreign matter, microbials or other contaminants. Testing can also confirm and verify the terpene profile as well as the cannabinoid profile, amount of CBD and potency. Testing is also used to verify that no fungus or mold is present.
At Basic CBD our products are grown on certified organic soil, Non-GMO and kosher.
What CBD Products are Full Spectrum?
Understanding the profile of cannabinoids and makeup of Full-Spectrum extract, this can then be used as the base to formulate Full Spectrum CBD products including CBD Tinctures and CBD Topicals like CBD Cream.
