Full Spectrum CBD Studies
If you’ve been researching the benefits of CBD oil, you’ve undoubtedly come across the topic of full spectrum vs isolate CBD. The full spectrum statement is that the additional parts of the plant available in full spectrum CBD oil have been proven to be more effective than an isolate CBD oil often referred to as “the entourage effect”. The entourage effect is often mentioned as a recent medical study as a reference.
The medical study that is typically referred to is a 2015 Israeli study that talks about a “Bell-shaped dose response to cannabidiol (CBD)” Here is a link to it. http://file.scirp.org/pdf/PP_2015021016351567.pdf
In summary, it shows that, at very high dosage levels, CBD may perform better in a solution with other cannabinoids predominately THC, CBC, CBG. However, you must look at the dosages being cited. Most people for daily use to combat anxiety or pain take anywhere from 10-50 mg of CBD per day.
What was used in the study:
- Dosage - The serving size was 50 mg of full Spectrum per KG of body weight. 2 KG = 1 pound. 160-pound person – 3600 mg per serving (the 99.9% isolate was equal to 360 mg)
- Legality - The solution had 1.1% THC. Even with the recent passing of the Farm Bill, anything above .3% THC is not considered hemp. It’s categorized as marijuana.
CBD at 360 mg per day for quality isolate would run around $50 per day or about $1,500 per month. Outside of a medical study, no one would take that much CBD.
