charlottes web full spectrum

I'm here to give you my honest review on Charlotte's Web, including the pros and cons of the company (through my eyes), as well as some insights into three Charlotte's Web products that I've tried myself. 

I learned this the hard way when I started taking CBD a couple years ago. I didn't do my research, and the first product I bought didn't seem to work—however, I didn't give up on CBD. Over the past year, I've tried plenty of CBD oils, topicals, capsules, edibles, and other hemp-infused goods, all from an array of different CBD companies. As a CBD enthusiast and product reviewer, I receive a lot of questions about products, and Charlotte's Web is one up-and-coming brand in the CBD space that I get asked about often.

Founded by the 7 Stanley Brothers in 2012, Charlotte's Web produces a number of commercially available CBD products, from gummies to tinctures to pet treats. Back in 2012, the brothers received international media attention due to the development of a new strain of hemp. Their strain was low in THC (the psychoactive component in cannabis) but high in CBD. All of Charlotte's Webs products are made with that original strain of hemp, which the company calls "the world's most trusted hemp extract."

What are the best CBD products from Charlotte’s Web?

So, while CBD often tends to be the star of the show, it’s worth familiarizing yourself with some of hemp’s other compounds as well. Here are a few others you might be seeing more and more of soon:

It’s helpful to understand the distinctions and variety of compounds that hemp offers, in order to appreciate the benefits of a full-spectrum extract. In other words, it’s important to know what is actually in the products you purchase, beyond just the CBD content. When evaluating other brands, we suggest requesting a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) for any CBD products you intend to consume, at a minimum. You can locate a CoA for any Charlotte’s Web product here; simply type the lot number on the packaging in the field and download the report.

Given the above, it’s not too difficult to imagine how CBD has grown into the popular compound that it has; after all, everyone has an ECS, and everyone experiences occasional circumstances like stress (unless you’re one of the lucky few who manage to live life completely stress-free!).

In this article, we’ll dive into what full spectrum means and break down some of hemp’s lesser known compounds so you can get a clearer picture of what hemp has to offer.

When you’re shopping for a reliable CBD, you may come across a number of different terms that you’re not familiar with. The market is currently saturated with adjectives such as full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate (to name a few). What’s the difference? What do they all mean?

Which ways, you ask? Well, a lot of them, potentially. CBD and other cannabinoids fit into the receptors of the body’s Endocannabinoid System, or ECS, which is involved in many physiological processes like appetite, sleep, digestion, mood, memory, metabolism, neuroprotection, hormones, and heart function. Among the many benefits our user’s experience, some of the main ones are:

As you can see, full-spectrum hemp extracts contain a variety of different compounds, each with their own potential benefits. All of these work together, building on their individual strengths to enhance the body’s positive response to CBD. That’s why we believe so strongly in a full-spectrum extract: we want to deliver the best that our plants have to offer for you and your CBD wellness routine.

Cannabidiol (CBD)? Yep. Cannabinol (CBN)? Yes. Cannabigerol (CBG)? That’s in there too. Cannabichromene (CBC)? Sure thing. Those phytocannabinoids, plus 100 more, fit into the body’s receptor network, the Endocannabinoid System, to help keep the body in good health*.

CBD (cannabidiol) is gaining popularity as a hot term in the health and wellness world —and will continue to do so as more people come to understand how beneficial* it can be to the human body. But CBD isn’t the only phytocompound we’re excited about in our Charlotte’s Web hemp extract. That’s because our extract is more than just CBD. Among the beneficial* compounds that come from plants, we’re currently aware of over 100 of them.

That’s why we believe so strongly in a full-spectrum hemp extract: we want to deliver the best that our plants have to offer for you and your good health.

So not only do our products include a variety of phytocompounds, each with their own health benefits*, but all of these compounds work together, building on their individual strengths to further heighten the body’s positive response to CBD. Scientists named this process the “entourage effect,” which means that our full-spectrum hemp extract provides more complete health benefits than taking CBD on its own.

Let’s not forget about terpenes and flavonoids too. While not cannabinoids from hemp, they are compounds found in hemp and other plants. Terpenes are fragrant oils that bind to receptors in the human body and carry a variety of health benefits.* Flavonoids are a group of phytonutrients that serve as cell messengers with their own health-promoting benefits,
