FAQ: What is Whole Plant Extract, Broad Spectrum & CBD Isolate?

The whole plant refers to the entire bud with some leaves and possibly some stems. The buds are what is used to obtain extracts that are being compared to the isolated, pure CBD or THC cannabinoids.

Fullspectrum CBD is full of all the terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, and fatty acids found in hemp, all of which have therapeutic value of their own and help create what’s know as the entourage effect. Broadspectrum CBD is a little bit of both. Broadspectrum CBD is fullspectrum CBD without any THC.

Full spectrum CBD quite simply means the product contains many cannabinoids beyond CBD, along with other elements of the cannabis or hemp plant, including naturally-occurring terpenes, essential vitamins, fatty acids, protein, and more. 

It’s worth emphasizing that CBD itself is entirely non-psychoactive. While full spectrum oil contains small amounts of THC, it does not contain enough THC to produce any psychoactive effects.

The alternative to full spectrum is CBD isolate which contains only CBD – the CBD molecule is chemically isolated from everything else in the plant. CBD isolate is cannabidiol isolated and then refined to strip out any additional cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant components found in the hemp plant. The final product is a fine white powder that contains around 99% cannabidiol.

 CBD isolates have no identifiable amount of THC, the well-known chemical found in cannabis that creates that euphoric high, and they’re stripped of the other beneficial and nutritional compounds like terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, and protein mentioned above.

FAQ: How Far Back in History does Using Cannabis Medicinally Go?

It is hard to credit any certain civilization for the exact first use of Cannabis, but it is worth noting that in the first culture to develop a practical form of writing, Cannabis is referenced: The Sumerians (southern Mesopotamia or Iraq) in around 3000 BC.⁣

⁣The earliest Medicinal evidence of the plant is dated to 2800 BCE from the Chinese medical compilation, Pen Ts’ao. Chinese emperor Shen-Nung, referred to as the father of Chinese medicine, prescribed chu-ma (the female THC-producing Cannabis plant, as opposed to the male ma). He even went so far as to deem it one of the “Superior Elixirs of Immortality” (Bennett, 2010).⁣

Chinese Surgeon Hua T’o, who according to the Records of Three Kingdoms (c. AD 270) and the Book of the Later Han (c. AD 430), performed surgery almost 2000 years ago under general anesthesia using a formula he had developed by mixing wine with a mixture of herbal extracts that he called mafeisan, with ma referring to cannabis, fei referring to boiling, and san referring to breaking up or scattering . This word is likely where the modern-day term “morphine” originates.

FAQ: What Should I Look for in CBD Products?

When it comes to CBD products, quality is EVERYTHING. In this rapidly growing industry there are many companies basically selling lessor quality oil slapped with a label claiming to be “high-quality CBD.”⁣

⁣In an industry saturated with imposters, it’s important to find companies you can trust and who actually sell a product that works. True Natural Oils is one of these companies.

⁣Extraction method of Cannabinoids from the Cannabis plant is a critical step in the process that can make or break the availability of Cannabinoids in your product. ⁣⁣Using the most advanced extraction equipment and technology, each batch of True Natural CBD oil is CO2 extracted at low temperatures. These low temperatures ensure that the extraction process is safe and gentle, preserving all the beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that are naturally present in high-quality CBD oil.⁣

⁣Full-spectrum extraction methods mean that you, the consumer, are presented with a CBD oil that stands up to its claims. Full-spectrum CBD oils are known to contain other cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils, and amino acids that work in harmony to create beneficial effects. This is known as the entourage effect.

Each batch is carefully monitored and tested throughout the entire extraction process, then sent to a third-party lab for further testing. True Natural Oils takes pride not only in the quality of our product, but in being completely transparent and open to anyone who wants to look at our current third-party test results posted on our website.⁣

FAQ: Does it Matter How I Take my CBD?

Yes.  For optimal drug delivery, the buccal (cheek) and sublingual (under the tongue) dosage forms must remain in contact with oral mucosa for a time of 60 to 90 seconds.⁣

A common problem associated with trans mucosal administration via the buccal(cheek) route, is swallowing the dose due to the continuous secretion of saliva in the oral cavity. ⁣More specifically, the dosage form must not be washed away by saliva into the gastrointestinal tract.⁣

The following is how we take our tinctures:⁣.

⁣1.) 3000mg/30ml TRUE FUSION 100mg/ml. – dose 0.5 ml (1/2 dropperful) twice daily = 100mg/day hold under tongue for 1minute to optimize absorption⁣.⁣

2.) 1500mg/30ml product TRUE BLISS 50mg/ml. – dose 0.5ml – 1.0 ml twice to three times daily. 25mg to 50mg , 2-3 times a day. 0.5ml=(1/2 dropperful) hold under tongue for 1minute to optimize absorption⁣.⁣

3.) 750mg /30ml product TRUE WELLNESS 25mg/ml. – dose 1 ml up to 2 ml in the evening for restful sleep. 0.5 ml = (1/2 dropperful) hold under tongue for 1minute to optimize absorption.⁣

FAQ: How “Safe” is CBD?

“Several studies suggest that CBD is non-toxic in non-transformed cells and does not induce changes on food intake, does not induce catalepsy, does not affect physiological parameters (heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature), does not affect gastrointestinal transit and does not alter psychomotor or psychological functions. Also, chronic use and high doses up to 1,500 mg/day of CBD are reportedly well tolerated in humans.”⁣

⁣Reference: Bergamaschi MM, Queiroz RH, Zuardi AW, Crippa JA. Safety and side effects of cannabidiol, a Cannabis sativa constituent. Curr Drug Saf. 2011 Sep 1;6(4):237-49. doi: 10.2174/157488611798280924. PMID: 22129319.

CBD FAQ: Can You Build a Tolerance to CBD?

Answer: No.

In 2000, there was a study published by The Kennedy Center of Rheumatology titled, “The Nonpsychoactive Cannabis Constituent Cannabidiol is an Cral Anti-arthritic Therapeutic in Murine Collagen-induced Arthritis”. The study ends by summarizing, “all of this suggests that CBD may be valuable in the treatment of other chronic inflammatory diseases as well.”

What’s even better, this study also reports that “prolonged treatment with CBD does not induce tolerance, a phenomenon often observed by cannabinoids”. This means that in contrast to many Pharmaceuticals, you will not develop a tolerance, or a reduction in efficacy as you use Cannabinoids in the treatment of your ailments.

In addition, it also features Arnica & Menthol. Arnica flowers have been used for centuries because they are known to support circulation, thus allowing oxygen to reach injured cells faster. In terms of bruises, sprains, and other injuries, this means that healing time is decreased, and recovery comes faster.

Researchers say CBD could provide vital treatment for coronavirus

As researchers and doctors rush to understand the novel coronavirus, sometimes new evidence contradicts old claims. Cannabis represents a main topic where scientists have spun 180 degrees in discussing how the plant interacts with COVID-19. Public health officials announced back in March that marijuana smokers and vapers were more at risk to contract and spread the coronavirus.

Lung health experts still don’t recommend inhaling any combustible material like tobacco or marijuana, due to the inflammation caused in your airways. However, cannabis has emerged as an unlikely candidate in preventing and treating COVID-19 symptoms.

Study: CBD and Terpene Formulation Effective Against COVID-19 Symptoms

A study led by Israeli research and development firms Eybna and CannaSoul Analytics suggests that a combination of CBD with terpenes is three times more effective at preventing cytokine activity than corticosteroid dexamethasone, Forbes reports. So-called cytokine storms are one of the symptoms of COVID-19, causing inflammation, swelling, pain, loss of organ function, and can cause the immune system to kill the body’s own cells.

The study investigates Eybna’s NT-VRL – a proprietary terpene formulation which aims to treat inflammatory conditions such as the cytokine storm syndrome experienced by some COVID-19 patients. The product contains 30 individual terpenes that may be anti-inflammatory agents and are generally considered safe for consumption, the report says. Dexamethasone was found in a recent United Kingdom study to reduce mortality by one-third in COVID-19 patients on ventilators.

Researchers used a “Cytokine Storm Assay” from Cannasoul, whose founder Dr. David Meiri indicated is well-established and allows for evaluation of cytokine storm syndrome. Using human blood cells, the assay helps researchers assess the effect of different treatments on cytokine secretion, which drives the storm in severe COVID-19 patients.

CBD alone inhibited around an average of 75 percent of the cytokines, while the terpenes alone inhibited around 80 percent, while NT-VRL inhibited around 90 percent. Dexamethasone inhibited around 30 percent, the report says.
