Some products sold as “CBD oil” have been isolated and contain only CBD. But other oils (including ours at Charlotte’s Web™) are full-spectrum hemp oils. This means they contain the entire spectrum of active compounds found in the hemp plant. Some of these beneficial compounds include things like terpenes and flavonoids (antioxidants).
These compounds work together synergistically to maximize the effects throughout the body, increase overall effectiveness, and provide additional wellness benefits. People call this the Entourage Effect. In a nutshell, it means that taking all the natural compounds together is more effective than trying to single out just a single chemical.
