There are many companies that focus solely on total CBD content and label their products accordingly. As a result, many CBD users believe they are getting more CBD than they actually are. Other companies are misleading customers who don’t understand the significance of CBD concentration by selling large bottles of tincture that contain little CBD. You can protect yourself from making an unfortunate purchasing decision when you know how to spot questionable sales practices and misleading product labels.

The Different Tiers of CBD Concentration 

When selecting a CBD oil tincture, there are a significant number of variables to consider. It’s important to pay attention to how many milligrams of CBD are in the product and the amount of CBD oil in the bottle. Most CBD oil tinctures contain anywhere from 250 mg to 5000 mg of CBD per bottle. The concentration levels generally fall into one of the following tiers:

How CBD Labels May Prove Misleading

Before purchasing a CBD oil tincture, it’s important to be aware of some of the common product labeling practices used to take advantage of inexperienced customers. Some companies will place a low concentration of CBD in a large bottle to prey on those looking to get more for their money, while others will leave out important product information like product content. To protect yourself from purchasing a disappointing product, pay attention to the following:

The Effects of Not Knowing the Correct Concentration

If you don’t know the concentration of CBD in your product, you have no way of knowing how much CBD you are taking. Even if the CBD concentration is specified, you will want to look at the third-party test results to confirm your tincture is as potent as the manufacturer claims. Not knowing the CBD concentration could have significant consequences, including:

Choosing Properly Labeled Products

To protect yourself from purchasing an inferior product, it’s essential to stay away from CBD tinctures labeled in vague terms like “high concentration,” or “extra strength.” If the amount of CBD in the bottle (either per dose or per bottle) is not specified, the CBD oil tincture is not likely to have enough CBD to be of any value.

When you select a hemp-derived CBD oil tincture from CBDistillery™, you will see the concentration of CBD per serving clearly indicated on each product label. You can also find the total CBD content per bottle on our site. In general, each serving of CBD tincture is one full dropper (1 mL), and each bottle contains 30 mL of product, which equates to 30 servings. Multiplying the number of mg of CBD per serving by 30 will also tell you the total CBD content.

Verifying CBD Concentration with CBDistillery™

At CBDistillery™, we clearly state the CBD content per serving on all of our CBD oil tincture product labels, and the total cannabinoid content per product on our site. When you know what to look for on the label of a CBD oil tincture, it’s much easier to find the right product for your needs. It’s also much easier to determine the best value for your money. The higher the CBD concentration, the less CBD oil you will need per dose.

Understanding the significance of CBD concentration and the importance of detailed product labels makes it easier to find the best product for your needs. For full spectrum CBD tinctures, 0% THC tinctures, CBD topicals, capsules, and vape products, visit CBDistillery™. All CBDistillery™ hemp-derived CBD products are tested by an independent lab to ensure the consistency, purity, and potency of the products we offer.

Throughout the ages, herbalists have supported the notion that whole plants provide more benefits to our bodies than individual plant components. Since CBD is just one of the many components found in industrial hemp, it makes sense that many CBD users want to use full spectrum products, the products that contain all the health and wellness potential hemp has to offer.

Full spectrum hemp oil contains more than 400 potentially beneficial plant elements. Knowing the significance of full spectrum oil, and how we make CBD products from full spectrum extract, could lead you to the hemp-derived product that’s right for you.

What Is Full Spectrum Hemp Oil

Hemp oil is extracted from the stalks, stems, and flowers of industrial hemp. It’s the plant extract that contains the cannabinoid CBD. While CBD is found abundantly in hemp oil, the plant extract also contains small amounts of other potentially beneficial plant elements including vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, and additional cannabinoids. 

The Cannabinoids in Full Spectrum Hemp Oil

A cannabinoid is a lipid that functions similarly to a neurotransmitter.1 Full spectrum hemp oil contains numerous plant-sourced cannabinoids shown to interact with key receptors throughout your body. Just a few of the many cannabinoids you will find in full spectrum hemp oil include2:

The Entourage Effect of Full Spectrum Hemp Oil

While many people are aware of the concept of synergy, far fewer are familiar with the theory of the Entourage Effect. Synergy explains how the active elements in a compound combine to create a greater effect than each element has on its own. In mathematical terms, synergy explains how 1+1=3.

The Entourage Effect explains how the inactive components in cannabis combine to create an effect from elements that are individually inactive, enhancing the effects of synergy. It’s because of the Entourage Effect that full spectrum hemp oil is believed more potent than 0% THC (CBD isolate) products.

Vitamins, Minerals, and Essential Fatty Acids

In addition to the combined potential of numerous cannabinoids, many people prefer full spectrum CBD products for their nutritional value. Hemp-derived CBD contains all the plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, and minerals found in the original plant, including:

How to Extract Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil

Before the cannabinoid-rich oils from the hemp plant can be used to make full-spectrum tinctures, capsules, edibles, and topical products, the oil must be separated from the plant matter. Since many products made with hemp extract are ingested, it’s crucial that the oil is extracted using a food-safe extraction method.  The two methods most-often used include:

Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Products from CBDistillery™

Full spectrum hemp-derived CBD products contain all the additional cannabinoids, vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids found naturally in hemp. While CBD is the most abundant of the cannabinoids in full spectrum extract, the trace amounts of additional cannabinoids, plant terpenes, and flavonoids contribute to the Entourage Effect. It’s the Entourage Effect that explains how the additional elements combine to magnify and multiply the effects of the others.

When selecting a full spectrum product, it’s important to know how the cannabinoid-rich oil was extracted. It’s essential that the extraction method produces a safe, potent, quality product. That’s why we rely on CO2 extraction for our full spectrum CBD products.

Vaping was initially introduced as a smoking alternative, a nicotine delivery system that created plumes of smoke-like clouds by heating a solution with a battery-powered heating element. Today, that same delivery system has proven to be the most efficient method of CBD delivery.

When you vape CBD, the cannabinoids often affect you within minutes. Of course, not all vape products are the same. The most effective CBD vapes contain CBD plus the numerous terpenes found naturally in hemp extract. It’s the terpenes in our vape products that makes them special.    

What are CBD Terpenes? 

CBD terpenes are the aromatic compounds of a plant. The terpenes give each plant their distinctive aroma and flavor. The therapeutic potential of any plant depends on the combination of terpenes it contains. Some terpenes are shown to have a calming effect, while others can increase energy levels and mental clarity. Shown to have a therapeutic effect on the body. If you have experienced the calming effects of lavender or felt energized by peppermint, you have experienced the effects of plant terpenes. Full spectrum CBD contains all the plant terpenes found naturally in hemp that contribute to the Entourage Effect.

The Entourage Effect

Full spectrum CBD contains vitamins, minerals, additional cannabinoids, and plant terpenes. Like cannabinoids, the terpenes in full spectrum CBD have the ability to bind with key receptors to influence vital processes within your body, working synergistically with the cannabinoids and even intensifying their effects due to the entourage effect. The Entourage Effect is the theory used to explain how the many inert elements in cannabis plants combine to magnify and multiply the effects of each component. It’s because of the Entourage Effect that many people believe full spectrum CBD to be the more potent option. The total effects of full-spectrum CBD are greater than the sum of its parts. 

The Potential Benefits of Plant Terpenes

The therapeutic potential of any plant depends on the combination of terpenes it contains. Researchers initially believed that the terpenes could promote healing by triggering the emotional centers within our brains. Today, research confirms that terpenes also regulate physical responses and modulate brain activity. Full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD contains up to 200 potentially beneficial plant terpenes, including myrcene, which has a calming effect, and pinene, shown to increase energy and improve concentration.

Why CBDistillery™ Terpene Vapes Are a Top Seller

It’s the terpenes in full spectrum CBD that give the hemp oil extract its distinctive flavor. Terpenes from other plants can enhance the wellness potential and the flavor. The vape liquids in flavorful CBDistillery™ vape pens are formulated with natural plant terpenes. The combination of plant terpenes is just one of the many factors that put CBDistillery™ vape pens ahead of the competition. To fully appreciate the value of our vape products, consider the following:

So how did The CBDistillery™ Full Spectrum Tincture rank? Here is Rave’s review:

“With its geometric logo and masculine font, this company’s product line would be right at home in a skate shop. Tinctures all come in 15 milliliter bottles, with CBD content moving from 250 to 500 to 1000 milligrams per bottle.

Prices are quite impressive, ranging from $20 to just $60 for a whole 1000mg of CBD.

We recently conducted a survey where we asked CBDistillery™ customers, “what is the primary benefit you received from CBDistillery™ products?” Not to our surprise, we received a variety of answers, no two entirely alike. What immediately sparked my attention, were the comments from customers stating something similar to, “I didn’t get any relief” and “it helped a little but not as much as I’d hoped.” The majority of the feedback we receive from CBDistillery™ customers on a day-to-day basis is how CBD has changed their lives for the better. So why does CBD impact some and not others? Why does cannabis affect people differently?

To get some answers, I took to the Internet and found several studies about why cannabis products affect users differently. Apparently, I am not the first person to ask this question. Even the ‘father of THC,’ Rafael Mechoulam was curious about how this newly discovered molecule would affect different people. Thus, one evening he invited over a few of his friends for some cake, which little did they know, was laced with 10mg of pure THC. A few of his friends felt ‘strange, in a different world,’ while some couldn’t stop talking or giggling. While the scientist now understood the cannabis compound, THC does, in fact, cause different reactions, it wasn’t until years later that we would figure out why. Here is a look as to why all cannabis (marijuana or hemp derived) products affect people differently.

Genetics

About 20% of the population has good endocannabinoid genetics. These people were born with a genetic mutation that increases the level of endocannabinoids and levels of anandamide (the so-called bliss molecule) naturally occurring in their system.Cannabis Genetics As a whole, the endocannabinoid system is partially responsible for regulating sleep, appetite, mood, motor control, immune function, pleasure, pain, reproduction and fertility, memory and temperature regulation. When someone consumes cannabis, the cannabinoids, like THC and CBD, replace the naturally occurring endocannabinoids in your body. Thus, if you are among the lucky few that have this genetic mutation, you are most likely less inclined to feel the effects of CBD because your body already naturally produces a similar result.

Men vs. Women

Cannabidiol products affect men and women differently. Research shows that estrogen makes females more sensitive to cannabis. That time of the month? Washington State University found that women are impacted more by THC a day or two before ovulation, because of the peak in estrogen levels.1

Men versus Women Cannabis Study

Unique Biochemistry

Biochemistry, the study of chemical substances and vital processes occurring in living organisms is yet another explanation as to why people react differently to CBD products. No two individuals have the exact biochemistry make up, which affects the way substances metabolize throughout our system. The health of one’s endocannabinoid system plays a significant role in this. As previously mentioned, the human body naturally produces endocannabinoids. Things like diet, stress, and overall lifestyle influences endocannabinoid levels. When consuming cannabis products, you are increasing endocannabinoid levels. For individuals who have deprived levels, cannabis consumption will most likely produce a favorable experience, whereas someone with healthy endocannabinoid levels might not “feel” the effects of CBD or other marijuana products.

Overall Health

Man exercising upside down

Someone who is using cannabis products to treat symptoms for a disease or disorder is going to have a very different experience than someone using cannabis recreationally. When someone is fighting off an ailment or illness, that individual’s biochemistry and endocannabinoid levels are altered, thus, potentially producing a different effect than if that person’s endocannabinoid levels were replenished.
