We gave the highest points to companies that use a CBD distillate for their tinctures. The process of distillation creates an extract that is pure on a molecular level. There are people who think distillate is too pure, and that a full spectrum decarb produces a more effective tincture. But in light of the inconclusive evidence, we prefer a distillate. The process allows for a high degree of control as to the finished product. It’s also odorless and tasteless, so those tinctures tend to taste better.
Our hemp extracts are rich in many cannabinoids, beyond cannabidiol (CBD), and contain a host of terpenes as well. Cannabinoids present in our extracts include, but are not limited to, testable amounts of CBD, CBG, and CBC. Present terpenes in our extracts include, but are not limited to, testable amounts of alpha-Pinene, beta-Myrcene, beta-Pinene, d-Limonene, Linalool, beta-Caryophyllene, and alpha-Humulene. Each of these cannabinoids and terpenes enhance the overall therapeutic effect of CBD and this is why they are very important to the quality of our products. The presence of these accompanying cannabinoids and terpenes, in addition to CBD, is referred to as “Full Spectrum.”
In fact, numerous studies have looked at the relationship between CBD and pain, and the results are promising. Researchers have looked at various kinds of pain – from joint pain to cancer pain. One finding is that CBD increases levels of glutamate and serotonin – both neurotransmitters that play a role in pain regulation. And CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties help by tackling the root cause of much chronic pain.
