There is a variety of products available if you want to buy whole plant hemp oil from oils and balms to lotions. Whole plant typically describes hemp products produced from the entire plant, but this can also leave misunderstandings when it comes to full spectrum hemp oil products.
Whole plant hemp oil is typically produced using multiple parts of the entire hemp plant. In New Zealand, current legislation limits hemp products to utilizing the seed only. Whereas the idea of "whole plant" refers to the creation of a product that contains a wide array of naturally occuring compound from the hemp plant, and this is where full spectrum can assist.
Cannabinoids work with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) through the CB-1 and CB-2 receptors in the body, which allows the compounds in a full spectrum product to provide advantages to multiple systems within the body. Full spectrum hemp can provide the ECS with enough cannabinoids to create balance in mood, sleep, pain, inflammation and anxiety. It is also a good alternative for children due to its low levels of THC (less than 0.3%).
As we mentioned earlier, legally the whole hemp plant cannot be used in New Zealand. In many countries around the world, whole plant hemp products still contain varying levels of THC. In our product, we limit the THC levels to less than 0.3% which neutralizes the possibility of any psychoactive effects. Our full spectrum product is grown by kiwi farmers on the open plains of Canterbury so you can trust in knowing your supporting our local communities by deciding to purchase our product.
Dr Ethan Russo, a board-certified neurologist and researcher of psychopharmacology, coined the term the "entourage effect" after discovering synergistic effects between different compounds that enhance and boost each other when combined. He studied the relationship between THC and CBD, as well as the relationship between CBD and terpenes.
Whole plant or unique full spectrum products are a good way to experience the entourage effect. These products have high efficiency and are more potent than using an isolated compound, since more compounds are available and working together. These products tend to be more expensive, but the user will find quicker and more profound relief from them.
Dr Russo also examined the benefits of using products containing cannabinoids and terpenes. Terpenes are aromatic compounds that naturally occur in many plants and give cannabis plants distinctive aromas and flavors. His research revealed that terpenes "could produce synergy" and when terpenes remain in a cannabis product, the benefits are twofold. You can learn more about terpenes here.
