Thanks to HBO, most people above the age of 18 fully comprehend the meaning of “entourage.” But what does entourage have to do with CBD, or more specifically, “Full Spectrum Profile Hemp Oil” (which is what we sell)? The short answer: “the entourage effect.”

If you have spent any amount of time genuinely looking into the various types of CBD, you have likely stumbled across hemp-derived CBD and marijuana-derived CBD (if you haven’t, please refer to this article). As a quick refresher, CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive ingredient) are two of the most popular cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. (Both hemp and marijuana are in the cannabis plant family, but are different plants.) CBD is present in both hemp and marijuana, whereas THC is predominantly present in marijuana.

Here in the state of Texas, to legally sell products that contain CBD, they cannot have more than 0.03% THC. Therefore, most of the products sold in Texas are derived from hemp. Now, if you think that there is a difference between the various types of hemp-derived CBD products, you are correct-- and these differences will impact both the price point and effectiveness.

When comparing two 1 oz bottles of 1000mg CBD tinctures, you might notice that Option One can cost around $65 whereas Option Two can cost about $120 (sometimes, both options are available within the same store!) Why is there such a large variance in price? “Isolates” (~$65) versus “Full Spectrum Profile Hemp Oil with the Entourage Effect” (~$120.)

When extracting cannabinoids from hemp (or even marijuana), it is possible to “isolate” a single cannabinoid through a distillation process by exposing the derived products to extreme heat and adverse conditions. The distillation process makes it possible to manufacture a tincture that is comprised of only CBD isolates. Now you might be asking, “Isn’t that the point?” Not exactly!

As we mentioned above, both CBD and THC are only two of the most popular cannabinoids present in cannabis. There are many more that have beneficial qualities such as: CBG, CBC, and CBN. All cannabinoids are produced by glands within the cannabis plant. These glands also produce terpenes, which are responsible for a plants’ aroma and taste but more importantly, can synergistically interact with cannabinoids, producing different holistic effects. “Some promote relaxation and stress-relief, while others promote focus and acuity. [The terpene] Linalool, for example, is believed to be relaxing whereas limonene elevates mood. The effect profile of any given terpene may change in the presence of other compounds in a phenomenon known as the entourage effect.”

Full Spectrum Profile Hemp Oil is the result of a chromatographic purification process (as opposed to a distillation process) which removes THC while preserving the plant’s terpene profile. According to our manufacturer, “The rich blend of phytocannabinoids, terpenes, sterols and flavonoids contained within our latest Full Spectrum Profile oil provides greater synergistic reactions [the entourage effect].”

The overall benefits of Full Spectrum Profile Hemp Oil far outweigh CBD isolates. CBD on its own is essentially useless. Think of trying to bake without heat, playing football without a team of players, or taking a vitamin without food. If you are paying $65+ for a product that will not act on its own, it is a waste of money.
