What does Full-spectrum CBD mean?
Full-spectrum CBD contains small amounts of all components of the cannabis plant. That means it can have trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Federally legal full-spectrum products will always have less than 0.3 percent THC. In states where cannabis is fully legal, you may also be able to find full-spectrum products with higher levels of THC.
One of the biggest benefits of full-spectrum CBD is that you’ll get what’s known as the entourage effect. This is a theory that says when multiple components of cannabis work together, you reap more benefits than when taking each individually.
These components include phytocannabinoids (like CBD and THC), flavonoids, and terpenes (compounds that affect cannabis’s scent).
If you want to maximize the benefits of cannabis, full-spectrum CBD could be your best bet (source: healthline.com, 2020 –

My Review of The CBD CALM Facial Serum:
I have a very sensitive combination skin that breaks out very easily. Finding a product that works for me can be therefore a challenge ?.
When you open the bottle, you smell straight away the natural ingredients. I do smell the organic hemp, but it’s very mild.
I like the texture. And like any other oil-based products, it’s a bit greasy. So make sure you don’t apply too much.
The face serum is at the moment one of my favorite nightly rituals. I clean my face and neck first with an organic cleanser and toner, then I apply the face serum. I haven’t experienced breakouts with this, and it gives my skin a nice glow in the morning. My skin feels smooth and clean.
Also, during fall and winter my skin feels more dry (more fine lines) and I’m impressed how the serum combatted the dryness.
The anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD and Evening Primerose Oil help me greatly with hormonal acne and any redness.
Highly recommend this product, no matter your skin type!

My Review of The CBD CALM Gel Capsules:
My interest in CBD started a few years ago when I got peptic ulcers and gastritis due to psychological stress. The benefits of CBD according to some studies sparked my interest right away. I tried CBD oil drops from a Dutch brand but I didn’t like the aftertaste. Therefore, I was really looking forward to try out First Crop’s capsules. No aftertaste and easy to swallow. My husband and I were testing the capsules for a few weeks and we both felt more relaxed. I can definitely recommend this product!
Side Effects of CBD?
CBD is generally considered safe. CBD may interact with other medications or dietary supplements you’re taking. Exercise particular caution if you take medications, such as blood thinners, that come with a “grapefruit warning.” CBD and grapefruit both interact with enzymes that are important to drug metabolism.
If you’re interested in trying CBD oil for your anxiety, talk to your doctor. They can help you figure out a starting dosage that’s right for you!!! (source: healthline.com, 2020 – Medically reviewed by Alan Carter, Pharm.D., specialty in pharmacology)
