Why Full Spectrum Candy is the Best CBD Product

Updated 11/9/2021

When we are shopping for the best CBD products, it’s natural to be primarily focused with the delivery method (edible vs. smokeable) as well as the concentration of CBD.  But there’s another factor that you should keep in mind, which is the presence of other hemp compounds in the formula that sit alongside CBD. Hemp naturally contains hundreds of distinctive compounds, with each one offering something unique to the body, as well as the overall hemp experience. No matter what kind of relief you are looking for (physical or mental), your CBD gummy will be most effective if it is Full Spectrum.

So, let’s explain what that phrase, Full Spectrum even means and why it is so important.  If you’ve been taking CBD for a while, you may already be familiar with the concept of full spectrum hemp. As you will see, it can make quite a big difference for the better as you maintain a routine with CBD product.

What is Full Spectrum Hemp?

Full spectrum hemp is a type of hemp extract that naturally retains its complete variety of chemical compounds as they naturally exist in the buds of the plant material.  The flowering buds of hemp contain a rich array of hundreds of compounds including cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and nutrients, and each compound in the plant has been shown to offer distinctive properties to the body that are deemed to be desirable.

Full spectrum hemp is an alternative to isolates and broad spectrum options. 

  • Isolates contain a sole cannabinoid, like CBD or delta 8 THC.
  • Broad spectrum hemp contains every compound in hemp except for delta 9 THC, a predecessor of delta 8 which is deemed illegal in higher levels due to its strong psychoactive properties.
  • Full spectrum hemp contains every compound as it exists in the plant, but contains less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC.

Full spectrum comes with an additional advantage besides supplying you with the properties of each compound in hemp.  These compounds actually work together in a synergistic way to make the overall experience more useful to the body.  The entourage effect is a term used to describe the unique synergistic relationship between each compound in hemp, in which taking them all together at one time boosts the overall effectiveness while promoting a more balanced experience.

Why Full Spectrum Candy is the Best CBD Product

We know that full spectrum CBD products are the best, but why are edibles the best? Well, edibles are great for a lot of reasons, one of the best being their inconvenience and their effectiveness. While smoking and vaping is still supposed to be done in designated areas, you can pop a CBD gummy into your mouth whenever you’d like! Extra bonus- there’s no secondhand smoke for those around you. And it’s probably a little bit better for your lungs, too.

Full spectrum CBD Candy is also digested differently than oils or smoking flower. Edibles are digested like food, which means your CBD gummy travels quite a ways in your body before you feel its effects (which is the one downside to edibles). But boy oh boy, when they hit, they hit. The Delta 9 THC, CBD, and CBN that gets processed by your liver feels twice as strong compared to smoking and its effects can linger for hours (if you’re lucky). Like all things, everyone’s body is different and processes cannabinoids differently. Make sure you start slow when exploring what works best for your plant-based wellness routine.

What Can Other Cannabinoids Add to the CBD Edible Experience?

CBD is one of over one hundred distinctive cannabinoids in the hemp plant, and each cannabinoid fulfills the same general role of binding to cannabinoid receptors to promote regulatory actions that improve our sense of homeostasis.  Each cannabinoid works with these cannabinoid receptors in a unique way to stimulate different responses throughout the body. 

Taking multiple cannabinoids at once can therefore offer a more complex + deeper experience, in which all of the body’s cannabinoid receptors are being given the fuel that they need to regulate the body for a sense of internal balance.  One thing we know is that taking Delta 9 THC and cannabidiol (CBD) together seems to make the THC properties even more relaxing, while taking the edge off of its intoxicating effects, so to speak. 

Therefore, it is not surprising that products containing both of these cannabinoids are particularly appealing, especially to those new to the cannabis edible world.

What Can Terpenes Add to the CBD Edible Experience?

Terpenes are secondary compounds in hemp, which are present in all plant life.  In hemp, there are hundreds of individual terpenes.  How these terpenes are configured determines the strain of the plant, with indica strains having more calming terpenes and sativa strains having more energizing terpenes, while hybrid strains are somewhere in the middle. 

Terpenes do work synergistically with CBD, Delta 9 THC and other cannabinoids, potentially boosting their effects, while offering their own distinctive properties that are also highly worthwhile to the body.  Specific terpenes are associated with anti-inflammatory effects, relaxing properties and more.
