You have likely heard much about "hemp oil." But hemp oil is not a singular product. Rather, consider it the general name for several types of products. One of those is full spectrum hemp oil, or FHSO for short.
So what is full spectrum oil, and what are the benefits of FSHO? Full spectrum oil stands in contrast to "isolate" hemp oil products, which feature primarily one or one small group of components. Instead, FHSO contains a wide range of beneficial compounds.Of course, it sounds good to have vitamins and minerals. After all, that's a common phrase that's splashed across countless breakfast cereal boxes. But what are the real benefits of having so many features in one product? The answer comes down to one word: synergy.
Think of it like a car. A car has tires, an engine, a transmission, suspension, and interior. Those things all work together in synergy. Of course, there may be times when you simply need a new tire. For those occasions, you get a new set of tires, not an entirely new car. But if you were to need a new car, you would not simply buy an engine, buy a transmission, buy tires, etc, separately. In that case, you may have all the components of a car, but it still doesn't form a car.
In many ways, full spectrum hemp oil is like a car. Indeed, it's a vehicle for these components to come together and work synergistically with each other. This concept is known as the "Entourage Effect." And, with the Entourage Effect, cannabinoids and terpenes are working together and in harmony to deliver a variety of benefits.
Full spectrum hemp oil is rich in CBD oil, which research has shown to be an agonist of the endocannabinoid system, kicking it into action with the help of trace amounts of THC. Considering that this is a network that plays an important role in the human body, the endocannabinoid system is something many people focus on when it comes to wellness.
Ultimately, FSHO is emblematic of the old saying “the sum is greater than the parts.” It offers all the same benefits that isolate products do and more - amplified by the synergistic Entourage Effect, which is only achieved with true, pure full spectrum hemp oil.
