The “Entourage Effect” Explained

What is the “Entourage Effect?”

The term “Entourage Effect” refers to the effect of all parts of the cannabis or hemp plant, such as cannabinoids and terpenes working together as a whole, having a more profound impact versus an isolated cannabinoid on its own. Terpenes are the aromatic compounds in plants. Together, terpenes and whole-plant cannabinoids, the therapeutic compounds, magnify the effects hemp and cannabis have on our endocannabinoid system. Strainz full-spectrum formulas include many whole plant cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabigerol (CBG), and 0.3% or less of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Trace amounts of THC 0.3% or less, is the maximum legal amount. The cannabinoid THC is an essential part of the formulation, which makes the entourage effect possible.

 

How Was The “Entourage Effect” Discovered?

In 1998, Israeli Cannabis researcher Raphael Mechoulam and his team studied the compounds in cannabis such as cannabinoid profiles, and terpenes. They discovered the “Entourage Effect” when comparing whole-plant cannabis extract to isolated cannabinoid extracts. These whole plant extracts contained all cannabinoids and terpenes found in the cannabis plant, while the isolates were pure formulations of one cannabinoid extract alone, such as CBD, THC, or other cannabinoids. Their findings suggested that full spectrum extracts, or extracts containing a full array of cannabinoid compounds, provide more effective results than an isolated cannabinoid.

 

“The Entourage Effect Benefit”

When you ingest Strainz full spectrum CBD oil, you take in the plants natural cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids. Together, all of these components give your endocannabinoid system the most significant benefit instead of ingesting one component at-a-time. The trace amounts of THC present in our full spectrum CBD oil are an integral part of the formulation producing the entourage effect. However, it is not enough to produce psychoactive effects. In some cases, sensitive individuals who take a large dose may feel a light psychoactive effect. When taking full spectrum CBD oil start low and track your results. Work up slowly until you feel it working for you, and notice results. Full spectrum CBD oil is a great way to bring balance to your endocannabinoid system and improve your wellness naturally. Strainz full spectrum CBD tinctures bring you the synergy of cannabinoids working together. Our formulas allow you to receive the therapeutic value of whole hemp plants.
