The Entourage Effect

You have your group of friends, your entourage, if you will. But have you heard of the entourage effect? Many of us are already familiar with CBD and THC, the two most well-known and well researched cannabinoids on earth. But cannabis is far more than just these two components, it produces many other cannabinoids like CBN, CBC, CBG, and more. And then there are terpenes, the aromatic compounds also found in essential oils that give plants their smell. For a plant that is historically associated with "lazy" people, cannabis is quite complex!

Here's what you should know: 

When we smoke or vaporize cannabis, our bodies take in hundreds of botanical compounds. Each one has a unique effect and benefit, and their behavior may change when other compounds are present; this is the entourage effect. The theory suggests that all compounds work together synergistically to increase therapeutic potential, meaning the more diverse compounds we consume, the more likely we will experience symptom relief. Essentially, terpenes enhance the effect of cannabinoids, and when multiple cannabis plant compounds are present along with CBD extract, it increases the health benefits of the CBD product. We can't talk all about this effect with-out talking about the brand, Entourage Cannabis, who sets the standard! After they harvest their raw flower, they use whole flower with a proprietary extraction process, turning it into pure cannabis extract while still keeping the strain-specific taste and smell. This way, they're able to make an oil that can be sold in its raw form or used to create a wide array of cannabis-infused products that we see on the market today. They've teamed up with a vast network of like-minded growers to provide the best extraction material on the market. This results in the highest quality end product while keeping up with the increasing consumer demand. What makes them different from the rest is their innovative solutions. Entourage Cannabis strives every day to set the standard for high-quality cannabis oil, and they improve the market place by putting the consumer first. That's an entourage we want to be a part of!
