Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant, with over 100 different types identified to date. These compounds interact with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), influencing various physiological processes, including pain sensation, mood, appetite, and memory. The most well-known cannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), known for its psychoactive properties, and cannabidiol (CBD), which does not produce a high but is prized for its potential therapeutic effects.

Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants, including cannabis. They are responsible for the plant's distinct smells and flavors. Beyond their sensory attributes, terpenes also play a crucial role in the plant's defense mechanism and may offer various health benefits. In cannabis, terpenes interact with cannabinoids to enhance or modify the plant's overall effects, a phenomenon known as the entourage effect.

Full spectrum products contain all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other natural compounds found in the cannabis plant, including trace amounts of THC. This composition contributes to the entourage effect, where all components enhance the product's overall therapeutic potential.

Broad spectrum products also include a wide range of cannabinoids and terpenes but have all THC content removed. This option is popular among those who want the benefits of the entourage effect without exposure to THC.

Isolate refers to products made from pure CBD, with all other cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant compounds removed. This form is preferred by those looking for the specific benefits of CBD alone.

Bioavailability is a term used to describe the proportion of a substance that enters the circulation when introduced into the body and so can have an active effect. In the context of CBD and cannabinoids, bioavailability varies depending on the product form and method of administration. For example, vaporized cannabinoids can offer higher bioavailability compared to edibles or topicals, meaning more of the active compounds are absorbed into your bloodstream and can exert their effects.

Hemp-derived products are legally required to contain less than 0.3% THC. While this amount is unlikely to produce psychoactive effects, there is a small risk it could lead to a positive drug test, particularly with high doses or prolonged use of full-spectrum products. If drug testing is a concern, you may prefer to use broad-spectrum or isolate products, which contain no THC.
