Full Spectrum

Full spectrum refers to a type of cannabis extract that contains a wide range of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial compounds found in the cannabis plant. Unlike isolated cannabinoids or distillates, which contain only one or a few isolated compounds, full spectrum extracts aim to preserve the natural composition of the plant as much as possible.

Here are some key points about full spectrum extracts:

  1. Cannabinoids: Full spectrum extracts contain not only the major cannabinoids like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) but also a variety of lesser-known cannabinoids such as CBG (cannabigerol), CBC (cannabichromene), and THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin). These cannabinoids work together synergistically, enhancing each other’s effects in what is known as the entourage effect.
  2. Terpenes: Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants, including cannabis, that contribute to their flavor and aroma profiles. Full spectrum extracts contain a diverse array of terpenes, each with its own unique scent and potential therapeutic properties. Terpenes are believed to enhance the effects of cannabinoids through the entourage effect and may also have independent health benefits.
  3. Other Plant Compounds: In addition to cannabinoids and terpenes, full spectrum extracts may also contain other beneficial plant compounds such as flavonoids, phenols, and fatty acids. These compounds can have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective effects, among other potential health benefits.
