The advent of cannabis legalization in the USA brought with it many things. Most importantly, it completely revolutionized the way that Americans and the rest of the world use cannabis. Whereas once upon a time, high THC cannabis was the only thing on offer, there is now a plethora of different cannabis products to choose from. Of these, perhaps the most exciting is full spectrum hemp oil with zero THC.
Why might someone be interested in full spectrum hemp oil devoid of the psychoactive component, THC?
Well, as our understanding of cannabis continues to grow, the more we learn about its therapeutic potential.
But not everybody wants to get high. We can’t neglect the fact that CBD-rich medicine has completely and utterly validated the potential of medical marijuana – or medical hemp.
So full spectrum, non-psychoactive hemp oil brings with it a basket of goodness. It opens up the power of medical grade cannabis for those who are THC sensitive and it gives validity to the cannabis industry as a whole. At GeniusCBD, this is essentially everything we are fighting for.
Stepping away from the stoner subculture
One of the most pertinent manifestos of GeniusCBD is the movement away from the stoner subculture towards a culture of health and wellbeing. The 100-year prohibition of cannabis led to many strange cultural perspectives about marijuana and hemp, the most prominent being the “stoner” stereotype. We believe that when cannabis is presented in a professional, clean and trustworthy way, it is accessible to a much wider demographic of people.
Full spectrum hemp oil is not recreational in any way, shape or form. Rather, it is a valid, effective form of remedial intervention or complementary medicine. It works alongside any person’s health regime, whether that person is an athlete, an academic or an entrepreneur. This is the Genius philosophy.
Full spectrum, CBD only and the entourage effect
There are many terms being thrown around in the cannabis industry these days and it can be downright confusing. Consumers and businesses alike often encounter the terms “full spectrum” and “CBD only”. But what are the differences between the two and is one better than the other?
When we talk about marijuana or hemp, we are talking about a plant with over 400 active compounds. So when we say “full spectrum”, we mean oil that contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenoids, flavonoids, and other therapeutic compounds. The combined effect or synergy of all of these compounds is called the “entourage effect”.
Single cannabinoid medicines such as CBD only or THC only products contain, as the name suggests, only a single cannabinoid. This means that a very involved extraction process has taken place to isolate these cannabinoids from the rest of the compounds in the plant. This results in high concentration products that contain only a single cannabinoid.
In general, herbalists consider full spectrum products to be more comprehensive and all-around in their effects. This is because all of the active compounds inside the plant are given a chance to work together as a team. While there is nothing wrong with single cannabinoid medicines, they often serve a different purpose. Plus, they follow more of a western, biomedical paradigm of reductionism to produce stronger, more targeted effects. A full spectrum product is a more holistic, naturopathic approach to herbal medicinal products.
