Why FCE™ vs. FSE, Distillates or Isolates?
The Entourage Effect
With ReAction® FCE™, you have the advantage of the “entourage effect.” This is where all the cannabinoids and terpenes are working together in synergy, something that typical full spectrum extracts (FSE) , distillates, broad spectrum and isolate products will lack. Distillates and broad spectrum products have often gone through additional processing to try to isolate and remove as much THC as possible while trying to maintain the other cannabinoids. You will not experience the exponential benefits of the “entourage effect” and will receive only some of the plant’s cannabinoids. Products labeled as isolates will generally be marketed as being 99+% “pure CBD.” Usually, these products will have nothing but a single synthetic, man-made CBD molecule in them because the CBD has literally been synthesized and isolated from everything else. When using Isolate CBD, you are getting only the benefits of only one of the hundreds of the plant's beneficial compounds.
CBD Type Comparison
These CBD and Terpene wheels explain which hemp compounds are most effective for which disorder.
Certain compounds found in the hemp plant are effective for certain disorders but completely ineffective for others. If taking CBD isolates, distillates, broad or full spectrum products you may not be receiving the proper compounds necessary for efficacy. Only FCE™ has every compound found in the hemp plant, so efficacy is assured across the wheel.
Isolate- In reality, isolates are not an extract. Isolates are a synthesized (man-made) chemical compound (usually made in CHINA). If it's labeled "99% pure," there's a 99% chance it's a single synthetic molecule.
Distillate- Partial cannabinoid extract of usually undisclosed cannabinoid content. Intentionally refined down so it mixes well for bottling in products (especially water-based products). CO2 extractions are always Distillates.
Broad Spectrum- Partial cannabinoid extraction similar to Distillates. Usually used to describe a product w/no THC at all.
FSE- Full Spectrum Extract- Extracted using solvents like alcohol. CO2 extractions CAN NOT be accurately referred to as FSE. FSE typically contains more cannabinoids than Distillates, Broad Spectrum and Isolates. However, cannabinoid content is limited to actual extraction effectiveness.
FCE™- Full Cryosonic Extract™- Trusted as the safest, high quality, pure whole plant extraction available. This 100% whole plant extraction includes all 120+ cannabinoids, amino acids, proteins, terpenes, and all other plant compounds, extracted and maintained in their original form for maximum therapeutic effect. Always free of heavy metals, pesticides and other toxins.
The term “entourage effect” has been used to describe the synergistic manner in which the more than 120 known cannabinoids and 600+ compounds found naturally in the hemp plant work together to produce the healing magic that plant is so widely recognized for. Without the Entourage Effect, efficacy is exponentially diminished.
