If you’ve been following along with our blog page, one of our earlier blogs talked about the endocannabinoid system. Let’s now discuss another important aspect of hemp wellness – The Entourage Effect. 

What is the Entourage Effect?

Understanding how CBD interacts with our bodies goes a long way into figuring out our most optimal level of comfort. There are many important terms associated with hemp and CBD, and one of these is certainly the entourage effect. 

So, what is the Entourage Effect? Simply put, it is the enhanced effect that occurs when several hemp compounds work together to create a greater impact upon our endocannabinoid system.  Here are some things we know about the entourage effect: 

  • The entourage effect has been shown to bring out holistic properties that are not present within pure CBD isolate.
  • Experts believe that this effect increases the therapeutic value of CBD by enhancing it’s known benefits or by expanding the field of applications.
  • The more natural compounds present, the better chances there are of an increased entourage effect and therefore increased relief. 
  • The many different compounds found within the hemp plant may have an impact on various areas and pathways in the body.

What are the Main Components of the Entourage Effect?

Now that we’ve covered the basics of the entourage effect, we can talk about the specific main components found in hemp that work in tandem to provide a greater impact. 

Here are the main components of the entourage effect: 

  • Cannabinoids (such as CBD, CBG, CBN)
  • Terpenes (such as a-Pinene, Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Linalool)
  • Flavonoids (such as cannflavine A, cannflavine B, cannflavine C, vitexin)
  • Additional Phytonutrients
