There are a few options when it comes to deciding what product is right for you. Full spectrum, Broad spectrum and CBD Isolate are the choices usually on offer but how do you make up your mind when choosing and do you actually know what is in your product of choice and what it does?

Full spectrum is a whole plant product which includes THC, Broad Spectrum differs slightly as the THC has been either removed completely or has been processed to meet legal limits depending what country you are in. CBD isolate is just that with no other compounds/cannabinoids found. Whist there are over 100 cannabinoids that have been isolated - CBD, CBG, CBE, CBDV and CBC are almost aways identified in certificates of analysis due to their measurable amounts - including ours! - so we thought we would give a brief explantation on what they do.


THC and its various forms have been researched extensively for their variety of health benefits such as treating chronic pain, treating inflammation, relieving muscle spasms, and acting as a muscle relaxant. It is a powerful neuro-protectant and anti-oxidant compound and has very strong anti-inflammatory properties. Due to its psychoactive properties it is only allowed in trace amounts of CBD products in the UK. Hopefully that changes in the future.

Cannabigerolic acid is consider the ‘mother’ of all cannabinoids, because from it, the plant transforms it into all the other cannabinoids the plant makes. It is the direct parent compound of CBG, a rare neuro-regenerative medicinal compound. CBG has been shown to stimulate the growth of new brain cells, stimulates bone growth, is antibacterial and anti-tumor, whilst also combats insomnia.


This powerful cannabinoid is able to help with many conditions. It is used to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, fight anxiety and depression whilst also helping reduce seizures, being anti-bacterial and inhibiting cancer cell growth.


Like CBD, CBDV significantly reduces the frequency and severity of seizures. It also reduces or even eliminates nausea associated with several conditions, and helps to reduce inflammation throughout the body. CBDV is also beneficial in the treatment of pain and mood disorders.


CBC like many other cannabinoids has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Research has shown that it also has a positive impact with anxiety and depression orders.

Cannabis had been a scheduled drug for so long, policies and politics have played a major factor in the limitations of research. Moving forward we hope the challenges and barriers faced in previous years are behind us and we will find out even more about this great plant.

We cannot make claims as a company but we live and love cannabis for a reason. Our motto is ENJOY: IDENTIFY: EXPLORE and this applies very much in the instance. We believe taking cannabis in its various forms can help supplement and support our lives but we leave it up to you to research further.
