What is the difference between full-spectrum oil and pure oil?
Full-spectrum CBD oil
(Whole plant CBD) is produced from a natural cannabis plant and contains 125 cannabinoids, about 200 terpenoids and dozens of flavonoids. It is a complete and unique rainbow of natural compounds from the cannabis plant (usually hemp) that work holistically and completely, where the intoxicating ingredient THC is found in a minimal amount (below 0.3%). The concentration of the cannabidiol (CBD) molecule is dominant in Full Spectrum oil, along with other ingredients such as CBN, CBG, and THCV and many others, which means that in every drop the patient/consumer receives the full range of medical ingredients from cannabis.
Full Spectrum oil, which has GMP certification, is produced using pure ethanol, a method that allows full extraction of all medicinal ingredients. The primary distillate has a smell and taste that is unique to it and the plant components. After extraction, the primary distillate is transferred to MCT oil, which is a tasteless and odorless medical oil, made at a high pharmacological level and derived from coconut oil. MCT oil is the oil of choice in the pharmaceutical industry due to its stability, shelf life and bioavailability.
Pure CBD Oil – Isolated
This oil is made only from natural CBD which is distilled from the cannabis plant (usually hemp). This means that this oil does not contain terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids and waxes. It is odourless and tasteless and completely free of THC (which is the intoxicating substance in the cannabis plant). After the extraction of the primary distillate, the CBD is mixed with hemp seed oil into one compound that meets the strict requirements of the GMP standard. The choice of hemp seed oil as a carrier oil for pure CBD is due to its aroma and taste, which cover the lack of taste and smell of cannabidiol alone.
Full spectrum oil vs pure CBD oil
Each cannabinoid offers different benefits for a wide variety of disease symptoms. Note that CBD offers more benefits for a greater variety of symptoms than all cannabinoids combined! Even though the other cannabinoids are found in the hemp plant in a very low amount compared to CBD, it seems that its benefits exceed all other cannabinoids even when it does not interact with them – a very important figure.
In the past, it was common to think that pure CBD is stronger and more concentrated than full-spectrum CBD oil, but in 2015 this claim was disproved by a study conducted at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In the study, a comparison was made between a group of mice that received full-spectrum CBD as a pain reliever and mice that received pure CBD. The results indicated that the mice that received full-spectrum CBD had greater pain relief than the mice that received pure CBD. The relief of symptoms increased as the dose was increased and also lasted longer after stopping the CBD administration.
The entourage effect
Based on this study, it was hypothesized that the effectiveness of full-spectrum CBD oil stems from the connections and meetings that exist between a large number of cannabinoids and the CBD and between them and the mechanisms of action of the endocannabinoid system in our body. This interaction, the researchers believe, is responsible for the high effectiveness of Full Spectrum oil, but there is still no research to substantiate this claim and only advanced research into the other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that make up the cannabis plant will lead to establishing or refuting it.
Although full-spectrum CBD has been proven to be more effective than pure CBD in treating a wide range of situations and problems, it’s important to note that pure CBD oil can still be highly effective on its own.
In certain scenarios, pure CBD can be an ideal solution.
There are many situations in which people would prefer to use pure CBD oil, for example:
- When there is no additional need other than spot treatment (inflammation in a specific place, pain in the spine)
- When the consumer is not allowed to have THC in his body.
- When there is a known sensitivity to THC or one of the other cannabinoids.
Medical cannabis and CBD products are not the same
The penetration of the term “medical cannabis” and the enormous change that has taken place in the market of off-the-shelf products due to innovative technological methods for extracting the active substances from the plant, contribute quite a bit to an apparently “trendy” global phenomenon, which is manifested in millions of people who in the last four years have begun to personally experiment, with or without medical supervision, by taking a consistent dose And continuous CBD of both types – full spectrum CBD and pure CBD.
We at MOYA-CBD have experimented in the past few years with accompanying and counselling those suffering from a variety of symptoms and diseases. The feedback and information we received about the two types of oils – full spectrum and pure – reveals to us a large range of options with the emphasis being on customization with a minimum of time and cost.
- There are people for whom even the minimal effect of 0.2% THC is undesirable. The feeling of intoxication is felt in these people relatively strongly and disrupts the routine.
- There are (rare) conditions and symptoms that pure CBD treats just as effectively as the full spectrum – and even better.
- In cases of combining two diseases/phenomena at the same time, such as depression and attention and concentration problems,
- Sometimes full spectrum oil solves one problem but intensifies the other – something that does not happen with pure CBD oil.
We have a growing database of testimonials from consumers who use CBD as part of their daily routine.

What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a key component of the cannabis plant (which accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract), with unique properties, helping a wide range of symptoms and health syndromes.
CBD does not cause intoxication (NON-INTOXICATING) and does not provide the euphoric feeling know as high in its effect. On the contrary, CBD has a calming general effect, which prevents anxiety and psychosis while simultaneously suppressing inflammation throughout the body and soothing pain, nausea and vomiting. Scientists believe that cannabeidol helps maintain balance in the body by interacting with the internal endocabinoid system.
