Cannabinoids are naturally occurring chemical compounds. They are typically divided into endocannabinoids, which are naturally produced by the human body, and phytocannabinoids, which are produced in plants.
Due to many environmental influences it is believed that our bodies have decreased the production of endocannabinoids. This has lead to various issues as the cannabinoids help regulate many processes in our body via a receptor system; the Endocannabinoid System.
Full Spectrum Extract
A full spectrum extract has all cannabinoids and terpenes that were extracted out of the plant. Without further processing of the raw oil, the natural synergy between the components stays intact as nature intended.
Researchers also found that keeping these components together allows them to work more efficiently, much like the vitamin C in an orange can give us more benefits than just the pure vitamin C itself. This is called the Entourage Effect.
