Full Spectrum – A Favorite of CBD Enthusiasts:
Our Full Spectrum natural flavor tinctures are available in 1000 and 2000 mg potency only. They contain chlorophyll and all the essential oils and cannabinoids of the plant. They have a strong taste and odor, making this a great option for the experienced CBD enthusiast.
Full Spectrum contains a very low amount of THC, and is unlikely to reach the threshold for a positive THC test. With a very high dose over an extended period it is possible – but not likely – that it could reach that threshold.
Broad Spectrum – Perfect for Most Users:
Our most popular option, Broad Spectrum products are probably the best choice for most. They have a much milder flavor than Full Spectrum tinctures yet contain 80% of the complete cannabinoid profile. We offer 1000 and 2000 mg potencies in Natural flavor along with several other flavor options – we currently have Mint, Vanilla, Cinnamon, and Pumpkin Spice.
We offer a 3% Lavender product which is great for skin, making it the best choice for topical use. With caution, it can be taken internally to provide a calming effect. Broad Spectrum contains a very low amount of THC and unless used with a very high dose over an extended period, is very unlikely to reach the threshold for a positive THC test.
THC FREE – An Important Option:
THC Free products are tasteless and odorless, and come in 1000, 2000, and 3000 mg potency. These products are the best choice for those concerned about THC – i.e., those who absolutely do not want to risk a positive THC test. Most users report that higher doses of THC Free are required to achieve the desired effects as compared to Full or Broad Spectrum. THC Free contains CBD only and no other Cannabinoids.
Cannabinoid Profiles & Terpenes:
The complete cannabinoid profile includes the terpenes found in the plant as well as Cannabidivarin (CBDV), Cannabidiolic Acid (CBD-A) Cannabigerolic Acid (CBG-A), Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabidiol (CBD), Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), Cannabinol (CBN), delta 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), delta 8-Tetrahydrocannabidol,Cannabichromene (CBC), delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THC-A). CBD is by far the most prevalent cannabinoid.
Terpenes are reported to be an important part of the effects of cannabis. The Terpene profile likely contributes to the overall effectiveness even though there is little known about their contributions. All hemp is Cannabis, specifically Cannabis Sativa, and so is Marijuana. It is a species of plant. In Illinois they are separated by a legal definition. Industrial Hemp is defined as containing less than 0.3% THC. Cannabis is defined as containing greater than 0.3% THC.
How to Use:
CBD Tinctures are best taken under the tongue so they can be directly absorbed before entering the digestive tract. Tinctures can also be swallowed or added to any food or drink. CBD can also be used topically (esp. Lavender) to ease muscle and joint pain, as well as an aid to heal wounds.
Start with a small dose of CBD and increase slowly until you reach your desired effect. Your ideal dosage of CBD depends on a lot of factors, like body weight, body chemistry, the condition you’re treating, and the concentration of CBD. For most people, 30 mg (a couple drops out of the dropper) is a good place to start. You can then increase the dosage in small increments until you reach the desired effects.
