A cannabinoid-rich hemp extract, like this one from TruestYou, is drastically different from a CBD isolate oil. Instead of isolating one compound from crude hemp oil (as you would to make CBD isolate), a gentle extraction and distillation process is performed to concentrate all of the beneficial hemp compounds, which include a variety of cannabinoids (CBD, CBC, CBG, CBN), terpenes , flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids. This “distillate,” which consists of around 70% CBD and 30% other beneficial compounds, is then combined with a carrier oil such as coconut oil to help improve its absorption when taken sublingually (under the tongue); or it can be used in vaporizers as is.
So, how can you truly reap all the benefits CBD has to offer? This may sound weird, but you should generally avoid products labeled CBD oil or CBD isolate oil; and instead, opt for a high-quality cannabinoid-rich hemp oil — sometimes referred to as full spectrum hemp extract oil or full spectrum CBD oil.
The fact that CBD isolate oils contain just CBD — not the variety of cannabinoids naturally present in the cannabis plant — eliminates the entourage effect and makes them far less beneficial for overall health.
What’s in a cannabinoid-rich (or “full spectrum”) hemp extract?
The good news: Research has shown that using CBD in sufficient amounts may have a wide range of health perks for both people and animals, ranging from pain relief to improved mood to balanced blood sugar. The bad news: The way most CBD oil products are manufactured and sold today greatly diminishes their health benefits; and given all the hype surrounding CBD, even subpar companies have been able to capitalize on the trend without much scrutiny.
What makes cannabinoids so special, though? They have an extremely beneficial impact on our body’s endocannabinoid system — this is an offshoot of the endocrine system (or hormone system) that consists of a series of receptors and cannabinoids, and it helps regulate nearly every other system in the body, including the nervous and digestive systems.
In a nutshell, cannabinoids are some of the most abundant natural chemical compounds in cannabis. There are more than 100 different cannabinoids that we know of, each with a slightly different effect on the body. The two most prevalent cannabinoids are THC and CBD. As you probably know, THC is the psychoactive compound in cannabis, but for the purposes of this article, we’re only going to focus on the health-promoting, non-psychoactive cannabinoids (you can learn more about THC here).

An adaptogen can exert an effect on the body to help identify deficiency or dysfunction, help repair phytochemically and nutritionally and then help restore balance, also known as homeostasis.
Hemp Oil on its own, without any CBD present, may help impart a variety of health benefits for your pet, but when combined with herbs that are highly nutritious super foods and adaptogens, the combined effect may help deliver premium nutrition, as well as layered medicinal support given to general wellness, immune support as well as whole body system support.
