It all starts with your endocannabinoid system, right? Everybody knows that? Well not exactly. Read on. Almost all living things have what is known as an endocannabinoid system, or ECS. In the grand scheme of things, whomever or whatever created life as we know it for almost all living creatures, the ECS was pretty dang important. Think of the ECS as a network of receptors that communicate with nearly every system in our bodies, including your brain and central nervous system where it helps regulate feelings of anxiety and pain.
There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, CB1 & CB2. CB1 receptors are found in the brain where they influence memory, discomfort, sleep and moods. But the key to the entire process revolves around THC. Without THC, CBD cannot bind to the brain's CB1 receptor, basically meaning it is much more effective when THC is included in CBD. This is a primary reason Full Spectrum CBD is much more popular because it does bind to the CB1 receptor and the results are much more noticeable.
CB2 receptors are mainly involved in balancing bodily systems and contributing to anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive actions. Both CB1 & CB2 receptors contribute to your overall quality of life by promoting homeostasis or balance within the body.
The entourage effect is the theory that all of the compounds, or the Full Spectrum of the cannabis plant work best together by creating a 'synergistic effect' that enhances or magnifies the positive attributes of CBD. But for this to happen, a trace amount of THC has to be present in the equation. The most effective CBD products contain all of the cannabinoids found in the full spectrum of the plant, hence the term Full Spectrum. This is why we at The Mother's Best CBD Wellness recommend Full Spectrum Products that contain all of the natural profiles of the cannabis plant including cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and essential fatty acids.
In order to be legal through the Farm Bill Act of 2018 Full Spectrum products must have .3% of THC or less. Although that's not a lot of THC and it definitely won't get you high, it may trigger a positive drug test. We tell all of our customers who might be subject to drug testing not to risk using Full Spectrum products. If you might be drug tested, then we recommend a CBD Broad Spectrum or Isolate product for our customers that contains no THC, but does not provide many of the same benefits as our Full Spectrum Products.
