Benefits of Consuming Full Spectrum THC in Beverage Form
Full Spectrum oils have long been known to have a positive effect on health and wellness and they now are available in a variety of delivery methods. Understanding the differences between the various forms of full-spectrum THC delivery methods and types of cannabis-infused products can be confusing. We’ll key in on the benefits of full-spectrum CBD and go into the beverage delivery method.
What is Full-Spectrum THC?
When looking for Full Spectrum THC oils you will see three different options: isolate, distillate, and full spectrum.
Basically, you are going either closer or further from how the plant is found in nature. True THC isolate is pure THC and includes no other compounds found in cannabis. This is used mostly in pharmaceutical settings. THC Distillate keeps some of the beneficial compounds beyond THC but has a narrower spectrum minimizing benefits. Full-spectrum THC keeps all of the beneficial compounds of cannabis including small amounts of compounds like CBD.
The Beneficial Compounds of Cannabis
So far about 200 compounds have been discovered in cannabis. These compounds found in the cannabis plant can be broken down into three main categories:
When people mention THC and CBD they are talking about cannabinoids. These two are only a small portion of the more than 100 other cannabinoids. In general, these compounds are responsible for the therapeutic and psychoactive uses of cannabis products.
These more than 150 compounds influence the specific fragrance of a cannabis plant. When isolated these can mimic fragrances such as mint, citrus, and more.
Flavonoids are found in a variety of plants including the large majority of fruits and vegetables. These compounds are responsible for things such as flavor, odor, pigmentation, and protection for the plant but have been found to have beneficial effects for humans as well. In cannabis, there are some 20 flavonoid compounds discovered so far. Some studies have shown these compounds to be anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and provide cardiovascular benefits.
When drinking one of Olala’s full spectrum cannabis-infused soft drinks or sparkling water you are benefiting from all of these compounds.
The Entourage Effect
Due to full-spectrum being a less adulterated version of THC oil it also has a higher potency than other oils. This is due to what research is calling the ‘entourage effect’. When the compounds listed above are used together they amplify the effects of the other compounds. For example, THC can amplify the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD.
Don’t settle for isolate or broad-spectrum when you can experience the benefits of full-spectrum cannabis-infused beverages. Take a look at Olala’s catalog of high-quality full-spectrum cannabis-infused products and find the beverage that fits your tastes.
