Some really interesting stuff here about pure CBD vs “full spectrum” cannabis plant extract. Apparently the full-spectrum products are more effective, as you might guess.
We’re not affiliated with these guys in any way, we just thought the article was very interesting and wanted to share.
A couple of quick interesting quotes from the article:
“The Israeli study found that Cannabis clone 202 extract ‘is superior over CBD for the treatment of inflammatory conditions.’ The greater efficiency of the whole plant extract might be explained by additive or synergistic interactions between CBD and dozens of minor phytocannabinoids and hundreds of non-cannabinoid plant compounds. “’t is likely that other components in the extract synergize with CBD to achieve the desired anti-inflammatory action’…”
“They found that both pure CBD and the clone 202 extract exhibited greater anti-inflammatory potency than aspirin.”
Interesting to note that the extract studied contained approximately 1% THC, 3 times more than legally allowed in hemp extracts in the U.S., but still far less than necessary to feel any “high” from the THC. If you happen to live in a free state, it would be worth looking for whole plant extracts such as this one with both THC and CBD, as well as several other identified cannabinoids.
