Full spectrum CBD oil (“Full spectrum crude”)
Extractions or extracted “CBD oil” from hemp contains terpenes and other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, THCV and even trace amounts of THC ∆9. The advantages of a full spectrum crude are that you get more of what Mother Nature intended. Sometimes full spectrum CBD is referred to as whole plant CBD, as the many of the initially extracted molecules are not distilled out. All of BenMar’s full spectrum products contain less than, or equal to, 0.3% THC as required by the 2018 Farm Bill.
Full spectrum CBD distillate
Full spectrum Distillate: starts as a full spectrum oil, but then goes through a refinement process to reduce or remove undesired elements such as flavonoids, or color and order molecules to produce a “cleaner” end product.
THC Free CBD distillate
THC Free (“Broad Spectrum Oil”) Distillate is sometimes referred to as “Broad Spectrum Oil,” starts as a full spectrum oil, but then goes through a refinement process to reduce or remove cannabinoids, such as THC.
Isolate is a pure, crystalline powder that is made up of 95% to 99% of the desired molecule (i.e. CBD, CBN or CBG). All the plant matter contained in the hemp plant, including oils, waxes, chlorophyll, and more are removed, offering a finished product that’s made up of the desired, isolated molecule and nothing more.
Water Soluble CBD
As beneficial as CBD oil is, our bodies are still composed of roughly 60% water, which can make a huge difference in the bioavailability of many of the most popular CBD administration methods (whether a tincture, capsule, edible, or drink). By creating better bioavailability, which means the degree or rate of which a substance is absorbed into a living system or is made available at the site of the interaction, water-soluble solutions provide a more efficient and effective delivery system.
Terpenes are fragrant oils that give cannabis its aromatic diversity. … These oils are secreted in the flower’s sticky resin glands, the same ones that produce THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. Terpenes are by no means unique to hemp; they can be found in many other herbs, fruits, and plants as well.
