Phytocannabinoids (produced by the Cannabis sativa L) like CBD and THC

Contrary to the THC molecule, another cannabinoid present in the plant, CBD has no psychotropic effects. Once CBD is isolated, it has many therapeutic properties, all without the risk of addiction or other adverse effects.

Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, known as the “godfather of cannabis research,” then took the baton from Adams, honing his focus on the cannabinoid. In 1963, Mechoulam described the chemical structure of CBD.

WHAT IS BROAD SPECTRUM AND FULL SPECTRUM?

The main difference between full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD is which compounds they contain. If a CBD product contains several naturally occurring cannabis plant extracts, such as terpenes and other cannabinoids, it is full-spectrum CBD. Broad-spectrum CBD also contains several cannabis plants compounds, but it is typically entirely free of THC. That said, there may sometimes be trace amounts of THC in broad-spectrum CBD products. CBD isolate is the third common form of CBD. This is the purest form of CBD, containing no other cannabis plant compounds. However, although these terms do carry some meaning, “CBD” and related terms are not heavily regulated, so some manufacturers may use the words interchangeably or misuse them.
