The Entourage Effect - CBD

Single Isolate CBD

Most CBD single isolate tinctures and gummies are made from Single Isolate CBD derived from  an extraction method that is able to remove every compound in the hemp plant except for CBD.  The result is a single isolate CBD product that is a white powdery substance. CBD single isolate  

is also known as pure CBD, is an odorless and tasteless powder that contains over 99% pure  CBD. This is the active ingredient in the Cannesota Single Isolate CBD tincture.  

Full spectrum CBD products

Full-spectrum CBD products including the Cannesota Full-spectrum CBD are derived from an  extraction process that maintains the CBD from hemp, along with other common cannabinoids,  terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids. Full-spectrum products contain almost all of the naturally  found compounds in hemp. Full-spectrum CBD oil features all of the hemp’s chemical  compounds, including other cannabinoids such as CBN, CBVA, CBL among others. By federal  law, Full-spectrum CBD oil products may contain only a trace amount of THC, less than .03% concentration.  

What is the Entourage Effect? 

Many researchers believe that the Full Spectrum CBD product that have additional terpenes,  cannabinoids, and flavonoids increase the positive emotional and health effects of CBD while minimizing most known side effects. This is what is referred to as the entourage effect

Even if terpenes are re-introduced into a CBD isolate, that doesn’t make it a full- or broad spectrum product. Some studies have shown that CBD isolates aren’t as effective in higher  doses as full-spectrum products that contain the original array of compounds. 

The entourage effect of full-spectrum CBD oils and extracts is what makes it one of the most  popular products in the cannabis and hemp field. Unfortunately, this can also lead to false claims made by producers that their product is “full spectrum” when, in fact, it is not. This is  particularly prevalent in the CBD hemp oil industry, where various extraction methods are  used which do not in reality yield the full-spectrum CBD oil results they claim. This is the  main reason that Batch Testing results should be available to the consumer of all Full  Spectrum CBD products. All of the CBD products found on have  batch testing results available.
