Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in plants and algae, responsible for their green coloration. In the context of CBD products, chlorophyll can sometimes be present as a residual component in full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD extracts.
During the extraction process of CBD from hemp or cannabis plants, chlorophyll can be extracted along with other compounds, including cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. While chlorophyll itself doesn’t directly contribute to the therapeutic effects of CBD, some consumers and manufacturers believe that the presence of chlorophyll in full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD products may provide additional health benefits.
These potential benefits are often attributed to the various nutrients and antioxidants found in chlorophyll, which may include vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.
