If you want to get full spectrum CBD oil that doesn’t have problematic amounts of THC, you’re best off getting it from a national brand, since they have to abide by national laws about THC content. Even among those players, however, full spectrum formulas will be a little different in composition.
cbdMD has a line of full spectrum CBD products that builds on our earlier expertise with broad spectrum CBD to craft the best full spectrum CBD oil for the widest range of users. The spectrum includes CBD, CBG, CBN, and cannabichromene (CBC), another cannabinoid with potential wellness benefits. cbdMD’s full spectrum hemp extract also includes terpenes and traces of other beneficial hemp compounds.
CBD is still the predominant cannabinoid in the extract – there’s at least five times as much of it as all the others combined. And there is a small amount of THC, but it’s within the federal legal limit and should not be intoxicating. So you can enjoy the benefits of Cold pressed full spectrum CBD with the support of the entourage effect without worrying about getting stoned (though keep in mind you might still fail a drug test).
The benefits for full spectrum CBD tinctures, gummies, softgels, and capsules are similar, but your body may absorb them differently depending on how you take them. If swallowed, they both act pretty much the same. Because they go through your digestive system before reaching your bloodstream, it usually takes at least an hour before you feel anything.
You can get somewhat faster absorption, however, by putting the tincture under your tongue and holding it for 30 to 60 seconds before swallowing. That way some of it can reach the bloodstream through the mucous membrane, which means it usually takes less than 30 minutes for you to experience results.
Swallowing can be a quicker and more pleasant way to take the product, especially if you enjoy the flavor. Because of the added terpenes and other ingredients, our unflavored full spectrum CBD tincture has a somewhat earthier flavor than its broad spectrum equivalent, while the chocolate mint flavor blends well with coffee and desserts.
