Full-Spectrum CBD

The entourage effect and why it matters.

Not all CBD oils are alike. CBD (or cannabidiol) is just one of hundreds of different  cannabinoids found in the Cannabis sativa (hemp) plant. CBD isn’t psychoactive but offers support for your body and overall wellness.

Full-Spectrum CBD extracts contain a wide range of cannabinoids and other compounds that are found in the original hemp plant. CBD Isolate, on the other hand, strips out all the other cannabinoids, leaving just CBD more or less.

Full-Spectrum CBD is usually an amber / brownish colour and has an “earthy,” slightly sweet, nutty flavour. Mellow CBD tinctures add a hint of mint, to soften that earthy flavour. 

CBD Isolate tinctures usually look nearly clear, depending on the oils they use as a carrier and are mostly tasteless.  

A more important difference between Full-Spectrum CBD and isolates is the entourage effect, where by leaving more of the natural plant compounds intact – traces of other cannabinoids and terpenes, you get a more effective overall impact from the CBD. 

Recent research conducted on mice revealed that full-spectrum extract might provide greater support for pain and inflammation at higher doses. In contrast, those that received CBD isolate did not exhibit the same degree of relief. 

All of Mellow’s CBD wellness offerings – CBD tinctures and topical balms, feature Organic, non-GMO Full-Spectrum CBD extractions. We think it’s the best solution, but we’ll continue following research and trends to make sure we deliver you the best and most effective cannabinoid wellness products, always.
