Full Spectrum CBD Oil
Our full-spectrum CBD oils deliver all the natural benefits of CBD along with a carefully selected combination of cannabinoids and terpenes extracted from the hemp plant. These hemp compounds have been shown to enhance the overall effects of CBD for a more potent formula that provides a wider range of benefits than from a single cannabinoid, also known as an entourage effect.
What is full-spectrum CBD?
The main difference between full-spectrum CBD products and other CBD products is that full-spectrum contains multiple cannabis extracts, such as hemp seed oil and other essential oils, terpenes, and cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, and it exists in your body's endocannabinoid system, even if you don't use cannabis or CBD products. There are several different cannabinoids that occur naturally as well, such as cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), and cannabigerol (CBG).
Research into the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and its effects on the nervous system is still being conducted, but it's believed to play a role in several bodily processes, such as appetite, mood, memory, and sleep. These processes are all important for maintaining homeostasis to keep your body and immune system functioning at ideal levels.
How does CBD work?
While full-spectrum CBD and other CBD products may contain up to 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), ingesting such trace amounts is still within the boundaries allowed by federal law, and cannabidiol products will not produce any psychoactive effects or the "high" associated with the marijuana plant.
The idea with these products is that the proper amount of CBD can interact with cannabinoid receptors and neurotransmitters in the body to produce anecdotal relief for things like inflammation, feelings of anxiousness, insomnia, chronic pain, and more. Again, these are anecdotal accounts, but CBD oil has exploded in popularity since the Farm Bill of 2018 made industrial hemp products and CBD legal at the federal level. This means that CBD products with low levels of THC generally comply with state laws, though you may wish to check with your state's laws and local legislation to be sure.
Healthline does suggest that CBD may hold promise as a natural way to relieve pain, and human studies using a combination of CBD and THC supplements have found that the compounds can relieve pain associated with multiple sclerosis and arthritis. More research needs to be done to ensure that these aren't placebo effects, however.
The modern popularity of hemp oil and similar products is also revitalizing research into clinical endocannabinoid deficiency. It's hypothesized that deficiencies in the body's endocannabinoid system may actually increase one's risk for treatment-resistant conditions like migraines, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It's also hypothesized that these deficiencies may also increase the risk for mental health issues like depression and anxiety, but test results thus far mainly point toward risk factors for the former conditions.
There are many CBD products out there, and they come in all kinds of forms, including edibles like gummies, capsules, topicals, sprays, and more. At Naternal, our goal is to provide you with the exact pure CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, or full-spectrum CBD that you need to experience a positive result without unpleasant side effects, artificial flavonoids, or anything else we wouldn't trust giving to our own families.
Just keep in mind that any effects that CBD isolate may have on your body's receptors can't replace medication, nor can these products be advertised to have efficacy for treating social anxiety, neuropathic pain, epilepsy, or any other conditions. While some believe that CBD contains a natural anti-inflammatory property, more research needs to be done. The only medication that uses CBD and has FDA approval is Epidiolex, which is used to treat seizures that occur with certain medical conditions like Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), Dravet syndrome, and tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC).
It is known that CBD doesn't bind to CB1 receptors or CB2 receptors the way THC does, but the way it works is still a subject of debate. Some believe that CBD helps prevent other cannabinoids from breaking down, so your body can have an easier time with absorption, while others believe that CBD binds to an undiscovered receptor.
We decided to make Naternal because our families use CBD products, and we were unable to find a brand in the United States that delivered on the quality standard we typically expect of health and wellness companies. We are passionate about self-care, and our biggest goals are to make top-quality CBD oil products with the best extraction methods and sell them at prices that make sense. All Naternal products are made from natural sources that have been carefully selected for the highest purity and best overall quality. They are rigorously tested (and retested and tested again) to ensure they exceed the standard you rightfully expect from wellness products.

How to Use
Hemp extract oil can be consumed safely in a number of ways. Tinctures are taken with a dropper by mouth or sublingually, meaning drops that are placed under the tongue or between the gum and the cheek. Users may also opt to mix their daily dose of CBD oil drops into their favorite drinks, such as their morning coffee, post-workout smoothies, and beverages with meals, which is considered to be the most popular way for those who may not like the flavor of the oil. CBD exposure is increased when it's absorbed in fatty acids present in fatty foods. How much CBD you'll need with your full spectrum tincture to experience positive results will depend on your specific needs.
Our Trust the Dose system uses 20 milligrams per serving as its dosage foundation. This decision was made because we most often see 20 to 50 milligrams as the recommended adult CBD dose, and it is also a common maximum dose recommendation for children. This made it a solid starting point for those who are new to cannabinoids and a sensible ceiling for our younger friends. Our THC-free full-spectrum oils and extract products also come in higher doses like 600 mg, 1200 mg, and 1600 mg of CBD, in case you need high doses of CBD to experience the positive effects of beneficial cannabinoids. You may want to get your doctor's advice regarding the right potency for your use.
**Due to current regulations, our products cannot be evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, ailments, or serious medical conditions. Products may contain trace amounts of THC but will not produce psychoactive effects. Low percent THC may show up on a drug test, but drug tests will not generally be screening for CBD.
CBD products are generally considered safe when taken at appropriate dosages as directed, but potential side effects may include dry mouth, diarrhea, drowsiness, fatigue, or a loss of appetite. CBD may also have potential reactions with certain medications.
