Phytonutrients are natural chemicals produced by the hemp plant. They help protect the plant from insects and sun damage while also keeping the plant healthy. They are extremely varied and multiple functions within the plant itself, such as attracting pollinators and protecting the plant from predators and disease. By consuming or using a plant, and or its extracts, we can get several benefits from the phytonutrients too. These are different from the nutrients you usually hear about like iron, potassium, and B vitamins. Even though we can get these nutrients from eating fruits and vegetables, they are not the same as phytonutrients. Though they are not essential, they do support our overall wellbeing when we get them in our diet. Since CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, it also contains phytonutrients when it is a full-spectrum product as opposed to a CBD isolate. These types of phytonutrients can have a number of benefits when you use CBD oil and other CBD products, particularly thanks to their antioxidant and antiinflammatory properties. When it comes to full-spectrum products, you get a whole host of benefits that can aid your health and wellbeing, keeping your body working as it should.
