Hey there, fellow cannabis enthusiasts! Today, we’re going to talk about one of the most potent and popular forms of cannabis extracts – full spectrum cannabis extracts.
First off, what are full spectrum cannabis extracts? Well, they are extracts that contain all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds found in the cannabis plant. In contrast to other cannabis extracts like isolates or broad-spectrum extracts, full spectrum extracts contain all of the natural components that work together to produce the “entourage effect,” a phenomenon where the effects of the plant are more powerful when all of its compounds are present.
So, how are full spectrum cannabis extracts made? There are a few different methods, but the most common one involves using solvents like ethanol or CO2 to extract the compounds from the plant material. The plant material is soaked in the solvent, and then the solvent is evaporated off, leaving behind a thick, concentrated oil that contains all of the compounds from the plant.
One of the advantages of full spectrum cannabis extracts is that they provide a more complete and authentic experience of the cannabis plant. Because they contain all of the natural compounds found in the plant, they can produce a wider range of effects than other extracts. Plus, because of the entourage effect, the effects of full spectrum extracts can be more potent than other forms of cannabis.
However, it’s important to note that because full spectrum cannabis extracts contain all of the compounds from the plant, they can also contain higher levels of THC than other extracts. This means that they may not be suitable for everyone, particularly those who are sensitive to THC
