Everything You Need to Know About Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil vs. CBD Oil
Yes, CBD oil tinctures have been all the rage for the past couple of years. But what if we told you that you could get all the benefits of CBD plus hundreds of other cannabinoid nutrients in a cleaner, purer, more potent product? It’s called Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil. And whether it’s in an oil form or tinctures, we’ll tell you why it’s the better choice for your body.
What Is Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil?
Before we weigh the pros and cons of hemp oils vs CBD, let’s start by understanding Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil. Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil is made by pressing whole hemp plants and infusing them with an MCT oil to maintain all the cannabinoid nutrients of the plant. Like CBD, it can come in many forms, from oils to tinctures to topicals. But unlike CBD, it’s not made by using harsh CO2 extraction processes. So, in the end, you get a cleaner, purer, more potent product.
Further, and perhaps most importantly, CBD is a single solitary cannabinoid. Cannabidiol, as it’s medical moniker, is the sole goal for many extraction companies, and we believe that’s wrong. Full Spectrum hemp oil means you’re quite literally taking in the entire spectrum available of cannabinoids, not just limited to things like CBD, CBN, or CBC, but also things like phytonutrients in the form of beneficial fats and terpenes. It’s that harsh extraction that robs all these extra valuable substances from your oils and tinctures.
Why Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil?
There are many reasons to take Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil instead of just CBD oil, but here are the main two, restated from the above.
- CBD oil companies use harsh CO2 extraction methods to isolate the CBD from the rest of the hemp plant. That’s not good for you or the plant.
- Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products like Synchronicity use the whole hemp plant so you get all the benefits, including CBD, but without THC and any of the nasty production methods. It’s a win-win.
Hemp Oil vs. Hemp Tinctures
Now the next step, selecting a form of Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil that suits your needs. There are many forms, but we will compare and contrast two of the most popular forms: oils vs. tinctures.

Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Tinctures
Here’s where there might be some confusion. Tinctures are made from hemp oil but are a less concentrated form based on their method of creation. Basically, the hemp oil is mixed with alcohol or another oil just like before, but then it’s heated up to bind the molecules together. You’ll also find that many tinctures have natural flavors added to them so they are easier to take.
Tinctures are sold in small bottles with droppers and are intended to be taken orally and swallowed. Unlike hemp oils, tinctures cannot be vaporized. However, they are much easier to add to your favorite beverages or foods. You can easily put a few drops into your morning coffee or incorporate it a small amount into a salad dressing. Tinctures are very versatile in that way.
The convenience of the tiny bottles makes tinctures easy to take with you and use throughout the day. The dropper attached to the top of the tincture lid allows you to easily measure and adjust your dosage. This means that you can take tinctures in the morning, afternoon, or evening depending on how your body reacts to individual doses.
As you can see, the oils vs. tinctures question really comes down to how you want to consume Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil. If you are new to Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil, give Synchronicity’s 500mg CBD tincture a try. It contains all the beneficial cannabinoid nutrients, including CBD, and has a taste that’s easy to enjoy.
As you dive deeper into the world of Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil, make sure to compare and contrast products on the market, as they can vary greatly in quality. If you are reluctant to try a tincture oil, CBD capsules offer a more measured solutions that is great for the person on the go.
