The entourage effect

The hemp flower contains over 100 different types of cannabinoids (CBD or Cannabidiol, CBG, CBN, Delta-8 THC, Delta-9 THC etc.), as well as many other plant compounds. Some products are manufactured solely based on the cannabidiol molecule in isolation. Others, like CBD flowers , retain all of these natural elements. They thus allow you to benefit from the entourage effect. The same goes for Full Spectrum CBD Oils .

What is the entourage effect?

The entourage effect describes the mechanism that reveals the full potential of CBD when consumed with the other components of the plant such as THC, other cannabinoids and terpenes naturally present in hemp.

Dr Raphael Mechoulam, who has studied this plant for over 50 years, coined this term. He discovered that all compounds present in the plant (including other cannabinoids, chlorophyll, fatty acids, terpenes and flavonoids) play a role in the medicinal effects of the plant.

Synergies in Cannabis: What We Know

Research conducted in 1998 supported the theory of the entourage effect when fatty acids in cannabis and hemp were proven to help certain cannabinoids bind to cannabinoid receptors in our bodies. More recently, a team of scientists investigated whether the entourage effect could increase the effectiveness of CBD as an anti-inflammatory. They then noticed that purified cannabidiol produced a bell-shaped response curve.

In other words, the effectiveness of the single cannabidiol molecule peaked within a limited dose range. Administering too much CBD had similar therapeutic effects as giving too little. When whole plant extracts were used, the results revealed that the more CBD administered, the better the effects.

Another study also highlighted the synergy that occurs when the cannabinoids THC and CBD work together. It showed that cannabidiol enhances the clinical effectiveness of THC. It also revealed that CBD acts as a neuroprotectant against THC. It counters many of the undesirable effects of THC and thus reduces feelings of intoxication and sedation.


The entourage effect: Let's trust Mother Nature

The existence of the entourage effect simply shows that, as is often the case, nature works best when we let it do its job. Full Spectrum CBD flower and oils are the most reliable ways to consume cannabidiol. These products allow you to be sure to benefit from all the benefits of the plant.

Cannabinoids, terpenes, fatty acids, flavonoids... It seems like every compound is there for a reason. The sum of the plant is much greater than the use of its molecules distinctly. The CBD flower allows us to benefit from uniqueand unparalleled know-how, that only nature can offer us.
