The interactive synergy between various cannabis compounds is called Entourage effect.
When various compounds within cannabis are combined, they collectively interact in the human body leading to astronomical results in comparision to individual compounds.
There are over a hundred different “Trepenes” in the cannabis plant and their interaction produces the Entourage effect.
CBD is more effective when it is ingested with other cannabinoids at the same time, as opposed to standard CBD oil, used in an isolated form with no other cannabinoids attached. Using the whole hemp plant, full spectrum CBD contains all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, along with trace amounts of THC.
While CBD interacts with CB1 and CB2 receptors, it does not bind to them. This is rather unusual among cannabinoids. By using full spectrum or broad spectrum CBD oil, you will be consuming a range of cannabinoids that bind to receptors located in both the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. You can think of the entourage effect as the enhancement of your endocannabinoid system through the use of multiple cannabinoids.
Health benefits abound when high-quality medicinal cannabis is consumed by humans. The entourage effect may be one of the reasons why marijuana is such an effective medicine.
