Why do we use broad spectrum hemp oil in FemiCanna products?

If you walked into a new restaurant and saw two options on the menu: straight penne pasta and penne pasta accompanied by side dishes that give the whole dish character, which item would you choose? The answer seems obvious.

Unlike CBD isolate (penne pasta saute), which has been extracted in its purest form, broad-spectrum hemp oil is devoid of THC but contains many other terpenes and flavonoids found naturally in hemp, creating what many scientists call the "entourage effect."

To find out why we use organic broad spectrum hemp oil at FemiCanna, it's worth knowing that the hemp plant has much more to offer than CBD alone.

Broad spectrum means more...

Hemp contains hundreds of phytosubstances, including cannabinoids such as CBD, as well as powerful molecules called terpenes and flavonoids. Broad-spectrum hemp products are minimally refined so as not to dilute the healing potential these compounds collectively offer. Know that when you buy a product that's labeled as broad spectrum CBD or full spectrum CBD, you're actually getting hemp oil - and all the powerful terpenes, flavonoids and cannabinoids that come with CBD.

On the other hand, when products are labeled as "CBD isolate" or simply "CBD oil," it's likely that the product has undergone a number of processes in which all other substances have been stripped away to obtain pure CBD.

While some may say that CBD isolate is the "purest" form of CBD, we argue that the hemp plant contains much more than CBD itself in its natural form-supporting our approach is a study conducted in Israel that documented the superior therapeutic properties of hemp oil containing accompanying substances compared to oil containing pure CBD.

Broad spectrum vs. full spectrum

Like broad spectrum products, full spectrum hemp oil is minimally refined to preserve the full profile of compounds found in hemp, including trace amounts of THC (less than 0.2%). Unlike full spectrum products, broad spectrum oils contain 0.0% THC. Both broad and full spectrum products produce what scientists call the entourage effect, which is a synergy of cannabinoids, terpenes and plant compounds that occur naturally in cannabis.

Benefits of using broad spectrum hemp oil

According to hemp researchers, products that contain more than just CBD have broader therapeutic effects for users with a range of conditions, from irritated skin to stress. Studies have shown that the terpenes linalool and limonene, when combined with CBD, can exhibit potent anti-acne effects, and the combination of terpenes, caryophyllene, linalool and myrcene, can help alleviate anxiety and promote calmer sleep.

Other benefits of this wider range of compounds include more effective analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. In one 2015 Israeli study, researchers debunked the idea that isolated CBD is more effective in treating patients with tumors. Subjects in the study who were given broader-spectrum CBD reported more relief from their ailments than those who were given isolated CBD.

Final thoughts

While the effects of full-spectrum hemp oil and broad-spectrum hemp oil are similar, broad-spectrum hemp oil is ideal for users who are sensitive to THC or for those who are working, active and cannot afford a possible positive drug test.
