    Memory help My husband has recently been diagnosed with alzeimers. I was recommended your website and decided I can at least try the products. I decided on the the miracle leaf gummy and am finding the little things that he is remembering, like day of the week and date which is massive for me. Will re order and 🙏 this is the reason it has improved. Thankyou

    Cbd drops and spray… Already have the king crunchies to calm my insecure big boy but my boy went in for an operation and lost his appetite so ordered the drops to pop in his water. I also purchased the king spray for his hot spots he can take on his skin. Not used as yet as it’s just arrived today which was extremely quick delivery service from miracle leaf also. If your thinking on trying cbd for your dog, the crunchies are so easy and my boy should take two and only needs a half of one so start off small. I hope this helps 🙂

What does Full Spectrum CBD Mean 1

What does Full Spectrum CBD Mean

There are three main types of CBD oil namely:

  • Full-spectrum CBD oil –  contain a variety of cannabinoids ( incl. THC) and terpenes, flavonoids that naturally occur in hemp and cannabis.
  • Broad-spectrum CBD oil – same as full spectrum CBD but without THC.
  • CBD isolate – contain only CBD

The cannabis plant, like all plants, is made up of several chemical compounds. Within cannabis specifically, these compounds are called cannabinoids. There are also terpenes, flavonoids. We will slowly explain what are they.

The human body actually has an endocannabinoid system designed to receive these compounds and use them to achieve a healthy equilibrium.

Full-spectrum CBD contains a wide variety of health-boosting and body-friendly compounds such as vitamins, essential fats, and protein. Vitamins A, C, E, and B are found in abundance in CBD, along with up to 20 amino acids and essential fatty acids, like Omega 3 and Omega 6. Amino acids are said to speed your body’s ability to make protein, which improves recovery time, and fatty acids are great for heart health.

 

Cannabinoids

These are the major cannabinoids that show up in the highest concentrations

  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
  • Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Cannabigerol (CBG)
  • Cannabinol (CBN)
  • Cannabichromene  (CBC)
  • Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol(DELTA-8 THC)

Terpenes

These are original compounds that provide the unique aroma and flavor in cannabis plants and influence its effects by interacting with cannabinoids. Cannabis terpenes support other molecules in producing desired effects. Average cannabis strain contains over 100 terpenes. 

  • Myrcene – Besides carrying the earthy taste and aroma associated with the cannabis plant, it is an effective anti-inflammatory. A study done in 2015 suggests that Myrcene may help in treating osteoarthritis and an excellent pain-reliever.
  • Pinene – It has anti-inflammatory properties and may help protect from ulcers and improve airflow into the lungs.
  • Limonene- It boosts the immune system, alleviates heartburn symptoms, and is used as a solvent to dissolve gallstones rich in cholesterol.
  • Terpinolene – research has identified terpinolene as a potent anti-oxidant and also has sedative effects. Studies say that it may eventually be used to decrease cell proliferation associated with cancer.
  • Bisabolol – it’s frequently used in fragrances and cosmetics. It brings about healing effects on the skin and reduces skin inflammation.
  • Nerolidol – Used widely in cosmetics and cleaning products. Studies reveal that it has anti-fungal, antioxidant, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Linalool – It carries a pleasant floral aroma used in cosmetics and cleaning products. It has been found to inhibit the growth of fungal infections outside the body, particularly as they arise from yeast infection candida. Besides, it has sedative properties and anticonvulsant properties.

 

Flavonoids

They are organic compounds and like terpenes, they produce the aroma, flavor, and color in cannabis.  They play a major role in the pigmentation of cannabis responsible for the different colors of cannabis plants. Scientists have identified more than 20 flavonoids in cannabis. These organic compounds are said to have anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-mutagenic properties. They include:

  • Cannflavins A, B, and C- Reduces inflammation by preventing the production of prostaglandin E2 hormone.
  • Orientin- Acts as an anti-oxidant, anti-biotic, anti-inflammatory, and neuro-protectant.
  • Kaempferol- Has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. May be used to assist in the treatment of depression symptoms and help prevent coronary heart disease.
  • Apigenin- Has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, bone-healing, and cancer-fighting properties. It is said to help fight bladder cancer, specifically.  It helps reduce anxiety and acts as a sedative.

 

So why choose full spectrum CBD oil?

Cannabinoids are chemicals that have the potential to interact with a series of receptors in your body collectively known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS)

It’s important to understand how the Endocannabinoid System works inside the body.

The human body produces endocannabinoids naturally. In other words, our body naturally makes compounds that are very similar to that of the cannabis plant. These endocannabinoids bind with specific receptors, then are later broken down by enzymes when no longer needed. The ECS is constantly working to create homeostasis in our bodies, which keeps a lot of our inner workings in balance.

When something is out of balance, the ECS makes precise, tiny adjustments in order to restore that equilibrium to the body. But when the body’s endocannabinoid system isn’t functioning properly, it can cause all kinds of physical issues.
