Storing CBD Products

The Full-Spectrum CBD products from CBD Spain are best stored in the dark and at room temperature. Exposure to light and heat can influence the degradation of the biological components. Thanks to our ultrasonic sterilization method, the expiry date has been considerably extended. The Plant-identical Full-Spectrum CBD oil will, if kept under the right conditions, certainly last 2 years.


The Full-Spectrum CBD oil and other products of CBD Spain are in no way addictive. Only THC, which is almost absent in CBD oil (max.0,2%) has psychoactive potential, which the body will build up a tolerance for with time. There is no sense of withdrawal when the use of the oil is discontinued. CBD doesn ́t have any psychoactive potential, but it does influence several biochemical processes through which it can deliver its calming and soothing effects on mental well-being.


All our CBD products are sterilized using ultrasonic treatment, a new high-quality technique. All ingredients in the cannabis extracts remain completely intact with this method and the highest purity can be guaranteed. The cannabinoids are also brought to the nano level, which increases the bioavailability many times and is therefore much more easily absorbed by our own body.


Dogs, cats and horses react very will to the Full-Spectrum oil of CBD Spain. The possible applications are numerous, ranging from epilepsy to arthritis to skin disorders. The metabolism of dogs is relatively high, which is a possible explanation of why results follow shortly after starting with the oil. The effective dosage is usually lower than needed for humans. The oil can be put straight into the mouth or rubbed on the gums. Some animals are not fond of the taste, so putting the drop(s) on a treat can be an option. 


The CBD Cream / MajesticK is made with bee-wax and olive oil, so could stain clothes. You could wrap the skin in plastic foil, or choose to wear some old clothes. Putting the CBD Cream on before bedtime is a good option. An old t-shirt can protect the pillow case if you put the CBD Cream on your face.

What are acidic cannabinoids?


What are acidic cannabinoids?

The cannabis plant naturally produces only cannabinoids in the acid form, represented by an “A” at the end of the cannabinoid name.

Acidic cannabinoids do not produce psychoactive effects and are less active than their neutral forms. Although generally considered biologically inactive, more and more properties of these compounds are being discovered

THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid)

Unlike THC, THCA is not psychoactive, which is why it was initially thought not to be an active substance. But according to current studies, it could have anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, neuroprotective and growth inhibitory properties. There is some controversy about the possible mechanism of action, as it was initially thought that acidic cannabinoids do not bind to cannabinoid receptors, but it appears that THCA has an affinity for CB2 and especially CB1.

CBDA (cannabidiolic acid)

Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) is the acidic cannabinoid precursor to cannabidiol (CBD). CBDA has been the subject of research for its potential therapeutic effects, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anxiolytic, and growth inhibitory properties.

CBGA (cannabigerolic acid)

Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) is the precursor to cannabigerol (CBG). This cannabinoid is special because it is considered “the mother of all other cannabinoids”.
From CBGA, the cannabis plant uses 3 different enzymes to produce the cannabinoids THCa, CBDa and CBCa in a chemical process known as cannabinoid biosynthesis.

CBCA (cannabichromic acid)

Cannabichromic acid (CBCA) is one of the main cannabinoids produced in cannabis, along with CBDA, THCA and CBGA.

THCVA (tetrahydrocannabivaric acid)

Tetrahydrocannabivaric acid (THCVA) is the precursor to the cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV). In terms of its properties and potential therapeutic applications, knowledge about THCVA is much more limited than that of other cannabinoids and more research is still needed to fully understand its properties and potential benefits.

CBNA (cannabinolic acid)

Cannabinolic acid (CBNA) is the acidic precursor form of the cannabinoid cannabinol (CBN) also known as the “sleep cannabinoid” due to its possible sedative effects. CBNA is produced from THCA. As in the previous cases, very little information is available and their exact properties are not known.

CBDVA (cannabidivaric acid)

Cannabidivaric acid (CBDVA) is the acidic form of the cannabinoid cannabidivarin (CBDV) that has similar properties to CBD, but has shown more effective potential for some properties.

Effects of cannabinoids in acid form and their therapeutic potential
Pharmacological interest has long focused on studying neutral cannabinoids such as THC and CBD, which are considered the active forms and have proven medical applications. However, acidic cannabinoids appear to have other properties and therapeutic applications, which has led to a growing interest in studying these compounds.

Hypothetically, the effects of these acidic compounds could work together with the other compounds in cannabis and complement the effect of the neutral cannabinoids, in what is known as cannabis’s entourage effect.

The two most studied acidic cannabinoids are CBDA and THCA:

Anti-inflammatory properties: Both THCA and CBDA have been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
Anti-nausea and vomiting potential: The reduction of nausea and vomiting is one of the most studied areas of CBDA, possibly due to its interaction with serotonin receptors.
Anti-seizure potential: CBDA has been shown to have anti-epileptic properties when combined with CBD, which could lead to the development of more effective treatments for certain types of epilepsy.
Potential for Anxiety: CBD CBD has shown anxiolytic effects in people with certain anxiety disorders and depression, and it is thought that CBDA could have a similar or additive effect.

What does “full spectrum” cannabis mean and why is it important?

Full spectrum is not a standardized term and can vary from product to product, company to company
“Which form of cannabis is the most ‘full spectrum’?”

Although there is no standard definition for what these terms mean, there is a general consensus on the terms such as isolate, broad spectrum, and full spectrum.


is used to describe any product that contains only one purified cannabis ingredient, such as CBD isolate.
Isolates can be useful for those looking for a very consistent product or for those who need the security.

Broad spectrum:

Is a less clear term used to describe a product that contains many of the active ingredients found in botanical cannabis, but has specifically had the THC removed, ensuring a clear urine drug screen while still providing multiple beneficial molecules handed in.

Full spectrum:

Is a term applied to a wide variety of products and is intended to express that the product represents all the molecules found in the cannabis from which it is made, the Cannabinoid acids, Terpenes, Flavonoids, etc.

The full spectrum controversy

“Full spectrum” is a description found throughout the cannabis industry. It is intended to describe a product that contains the natural variety of secondary metabolites (molecules such as cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids) found in the cannabis plant. But despite being widely used in the industry, some of the most talked-about terms in cannabis still have no agreed definition – and ‘full spectrum’ is no exception.

Conceptually, it’s simple: to leverage the concept of the entourage effect, a full spectrum product should contain the same molecules as the plant. The problem is that the plant contains hundreds of molecules that have different chemical properties and any extraction process will lose some or many of the bioactive molecules from the source ingredients.


Here is a list of the different forms of cannabis


Living resin:


Resin uses heat and pressure to extract cannabinoids from flower or hash
Rosin is made by applying low heat and pressure to extract cannabinoid-rich and terpene-rich resins from hashish or cannabis flowers.
Because it requires very little heat, rosin contains mainly cannabinoid acids and, depending on the source material, can also be very rich in terpenes.

The term “live” is used to indicate that the cannabis product uses a cannabis flower that has been frozen shortly after harvest, which retains many of the volatile terpenes that would be lost during the drying and curing process.

It is little surprise that a product made from cannabis flowers, which are frozen immediately after harvest, is considered almost full spectrum. In fact, freezing is specifically aimed at preserving terpenes, which contribute significantly to the entourage effect.


Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)


RSO is a crude cannabis extract usually made with solvents such as alcohol.
The term RSO is applied to a crude cannabis extract that contains many components found in the cannabis plant, including chlorophyll. It is primarily the presence of chlorophyll that leads to the very dark appearance often seen with RSO. This extraction method can be performed using numerous solvents, but alcohol is most commonly used.

RSO often contains other plant molecules, such as fats, waxes, sterols, and of chlorophyll.

This product is usually heated to evaporate the solvent (alcohol) and decarboxylate the cannabinoids, as this product is normally consumed orally.

Considering the crude extraction process removes much more than just cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant, it is reasonable that consumers feel this product has a more complete spectrum than many others on the market.


Ice water hash:


Ice and water are used to wash the trichomes from the plant and then dry them to produce this hash
Made using an extraction method called cold water extraction, this process uses ice and water to harden the trichome heads (where almost all resinous cannabinoids and terpenoids are produced) and separate them from the rest of the plant.
These resin-rich trichomes are then dried to create a refined form of hash known as ice water hash (also called bubble hash). Bubble hash can be consumed as is, added to buds or further pressed into resin.


Dried flower:


Dried flowers seem to be the most popular choice for people deciding what “full spectrum” means
Exactly what the name indicates: this is a cannabis flower that has been matured with attention.
Traditionally, cannabis flowers need to be hung to dry for a few weeks after harvest to prepare them for long-term storage. Without this crucial drying step, or if it is not dried properly, mold will take hold and ruin the flowers.
After drying, there is another process that has long been touted as the secret to any craft cannabis: the curing process.

During the curing process, some terpenes may be lost or transformed, which may sound bad to the average consumer, but for the cannabis connoisseur, the curing process is a crucial step in producing the best cannabis flower.


which aspects of the cannabis plant are most medicinal is still up for debate. If you’re looking for cannabinoids, extractions made from trichome-rich flowers certainly offer the most robust spectrum of molecules. But if you want the antioxidant benefits of the cannabis plant, it may make more sense to extract the bioactive molecules from the leaves and roots extract.
