CBD oil consists of a hemp extract and a base oil. When we look more closely however, there’s more to be said about the components of CBD oil.
The flowers of hemp plants (which are the main source for the CBD extract) contain, in addition to CBD, a spectrum of other active substances. The most important of these active substances are other cannabinoids. Each of these cannabinoids has its own effect. In addition to that, different cannabinoids also work together to produce a synergistic effect. Although the other cannabinoids are only present at lower concentrations, they can improve and enhance the effects of CBD.
The same can be said about terpenes, which give hemp plants their specific aroma and taste. Like cannabinoids, terpenes have their own effects as well as a similar synergistic effect, enhancing the beneficial effects of CBD and other cannabinoids. All these synergistic effects combined are what we call the entourage effect, which is the big advantage of a Full Spectrum CBD product.
Our base oils are not chosen at random. Health benefits are attributed to both hemp seed oil and black cumin seed oil (Nigella sativa), which both contain lots of essential fatty acids.
Do you have an allergy to black cumin (seed)? Then avoid using CBD oil based on Nigella sativa (black cumin seed oil).
