When you consume a CBD product, many talks about the importance of the entourage effect. You might be wondering, what is the entourage effect and how the entourage effect determines how effective my CBD product will be. Well, we are glad you asked! The Entourage Effect is the effect that many refer to when the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other natural botanicals work together to increase the effectiveness of the CBD product. The hemp plant is made up of more than 100 types of cannabinoids, some examples of cannabinoids include CBD and THC. In addition to the numerous cannabinoids, the hemp plant is also full of naturally occurring terpenes. These cannabinoids and terpenes all work together in the body to enhance the effect of the CBD product.
Yes! While products like CBD isolate (a product with just CBD) can have some beneficial effects, it is accepted that the additional cannabinoids found in broad-spectrum and full-spectrum CBD oil enhance their effect within the body. This is because the various cannabinoids and terpenes complement each other in the body.
There is still a lot to learn about other minor cannabinoids and their effect on the human body. While CBD and THC are the more well-known cannabinoids, minor cannabinoids such as CBG, CBC, CBN, and more have shown some very exciting results in preliminary research. To make sure you are getting the most out of your CBD oil, it is recommended to use a full-spectrum or broad-spectrum oil to get the most out of the entourage effect that you can.
While there is still a lot to learn about the entourage effect, the information that is out there is very promising! It is exciting that there is a system in the body that cannabinoids specifically act on to help support the body’s normal daily function. While research expands surrounding the entourage effect and other cannabinoids, there is also exciting ongoing research in the cannabinoid space. While CBD is very prominent, there are other minor cannabinoids such as CBC, CBG, CBN, and more that show tremendous promise in how they act on the endocannabinoid system. Have additional questions?
