Frequently Asked Questions
What is full-spectrum CBD Oil?
Full-spectrum CBD oil is a CBD product that contains the full spectrum of compounds found in the cannabis hemp plant. This includes CBD, CBDa, CBG, CBN, and small amounts of THC. It is considered to have greater medicinal benefits than other forms of cannabis derivatives due to a phenomenon called the entourage effect - meaning that all of the compounds in full-spectrum CBD work better together than in isolation. From the perspective of taste, full-spectrum also retains a closer flavour and aroma profile to hemp plant.
To understand what full-spectrum CBD is in more depth, it is best to have a basic understanding of the cannabis plant and its types of beneficial compounds.
The cannabis hemp plant contains many different types of compounds which include cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and fatty acids.
If you’re visiting our site, you’ve most likely heard of CBD before, though next to CBD, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the most well-known cannabinoid. THC is a psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that produces a “high” feeling when people consume it. Along with the full spectrum of terpenes, flavonoids and fatty acids, full-spectrum CBD oil contains small traces of THC. This shouldn’t be a concern, however, as it is a very low amount and within the legal limit (less than 0.2%). Cannabis plants that produce less than 0.3% of THC are technically defined as hemp.
See our article on full-spectrum CBD explained for more information.
How is a full-spectrum extract made?
Full Spectrum CBD extracts, commonly referred to as whole-plant extracts, are made by extracting cannabinoid compounds from the flowers, leaves and stalks of the hemp plant. The quality of hemp is the most important factor in producing high-quality CBD oil, which is why we only work with the best hemp farmers and producers in Europe.
There are a number of methods used in the product of full-spectrum extracts, though the most notable differences lie in the extraction process. Full-spectrum extraction can be a challenging process and requires absolute precision to ensure the right compounds are extracted and depending on the method of extraction used, the wrong compounds are kept out.
At LuxeCBD, we use a process known as supercritical CO2 extraction to extract the full spectrum of compounds from our hemp. Using state of the art equipment and patented processes, we are able to extract only the most desirable components without using unnatural solvents or chemicals. Our process of extraction also requires little to no post-processing, ensuring higher quality, organic products.
What are the benefits of Full Spectrum CBD?
CBD has been well documented throughout many studies to have beneficial effects when consumed in isolation. Whilst its medicinal properties are recognised, research suggests that the therapeutic benefits of CBD are far greater when combined with other compounds found in the cannabis plant. These compounds include terpenes, flavonoids and other cannabinoid.
One of the main reasons full-spectrum CBD oil is preferred by many is the greater medicinal properties it has when compared to other forms of CBD oil. The terpenes, fatty acids and compounds help improve the efficiency to which your body can interact with and absorb the cannabinoids. Many of the chemical cannabinoids in full-spectrum CBD have renowned healing properties. From anti-inflammatories to anxiety and pain relief, the full spectrum offers a multitude of benefits over other forms of CBD oil.
The medicinal properties and positive effects of full-spectrum CBD are usually referred to as the entourage effect - a phenomenon where compounds in cannabis produce desirable benefits together rather than in isolation, as a result of the natural composition of full-spectrum CBD.
Does Full Spectrum CBD get you high?
The short answer is no, full-spectrum CBD will not get you high. Whilst it is true that full-spectrum CBD oil may contain very small amounts of THC (<0.2%), this concentration is too low to cause intoxication or inebriation.
Will CBD Oil cause me to fail a drug test?
CBD oil should not cause you to test positive for cannabis on a drug test.
Drug tests that screen for THC may work in different ways, depending on the application. For example, roadside tests used by the police, rely on testing kits that use swabs to test the saliva for the presence of THC molecules that can be found specifically in the mouth. Workplace testing often relies on urine samples to detect the presence of THC metabolites.
UK regulated CBD products must adhere to strict regulations around the permitted THC limit which is currently 0.2% - so it is incredibly unlikely that you will surpass the threshold of a standard drug test. With that said, it is vital that you purchase from a legitimate and regulated CBD seller, as unregulated CBD oils have been shown to contain between 5-10% THC content which will likely result in a positive test, should a drug test be taken. Our products are all submitted through thorough lab batch testing to ensure not only consistency in quality but in adherence to UK regulations.
