Extraction method matters to the quality of your CBD. The extraction method we use results in 100% pure, all-natural CBD tincture that is truly “full-spectrum."
Research is scant but suggests that full-spectrum oil, which retains the components of the original plant, is more beneficial than ultra-refined oil or CBD isolate, by giving a greater “entourage effect” and providing more components of the cannabis plant that may show to have health benefits. Based on our research, science will eventually show that the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts, and the closer you can get to its original form, the better.
Coined by S. Ben-Shabat and Raphael Mechoulam in 1998, the entourage effect refers to the concept that the effectiveness of cannabis is partially due to its delivery of key components (such as CBD or THC) alongside other components (like terpenes and other compounds that are not yet fully understood). In a nutshell, the “magic” of cannabis is somewhat lost the further you get from the full plant.
This idea that the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts is widely accepted when it comes to processed foods versus their whole-food counterparts… and we’re sure that with time, consumers will come to expect the same from everything they ingest, including CBD oil.
