What is Full Spectrum Phytocannabinoids?
Phytocannabinoids refer to any cannabinoid that is naturally occurring within the cannabis family of plants. CBD is one cannabinoid among over 100 different cannabinoids found in high-CBD hemp and cannabis. A full spectrum phytocannabinoid profile or 'full spectrum extract' is an extraction of all the plant's cannabinoids and terpenes together. Enliven Essentials chooses to create all our products with full-spectrum hemp oil, which includes all of the cannabinoids found in the plant, so you don’t miss out on any of the great benefits.

Enliven is also happy to provide the results of these lab tests. If you do purchase CBD elsewhere, be sure to ask those companies for the same information. Transparency is key!
