the whole plant matters with the entourage effect

As you are researching the different types of CBD Oil, you can’t avoid coming across the term “entourage effect.” 

What does the entourage effect mean? 

The entourage effect is derived from the synergistic interaction of the cannabis compounds working together. While most people are familiar with the cannabinoids THC and CBD, these are just two of the many players in effect. It’s the interactive synergy between all the cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids naturally found in cannabis. This gives credence to the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and why many research suggests the whole plant matters.

To put it simply, the benefits you get from ingesting multiple parts of the cannabis plant together outweighs ingesting one compound at-a-time. Let’s think of this concept in terms of human interactions. We all have unique skills that help us succeed in life and when we form a partnership with someone who has different talents, we can combine these abilities to achieve something greater and unimaginable. The whole of the two people together is greater than the individuals by themselves. The entourage effect acts in the same manner because the different compounds in cannabis amplify one another and produce a stronger influence. 

There are approximately 500 compounds within the hemp plant, including about 100 phytocannabinoids and terpenes. Additionally, the flavonoids represent about 10% of the total substances produced by the cannabis plant. Though not unique to the cannabis plant, flavonoids are found in flowers, fruits and vegetables. There are some flavonoids though that are exclusive to cannabis and in general are responsible for the color, aroma and flavor; and are known to have antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory effects.

endocannabinoid system

what is the endocannabinoid system?

Research has revealed that the endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining and controlling the body’s homeostasis (balanced system regulation). It accomplishes this through two known receptors: CB1 and CB2. The body produces its own endogenous cannabinoids, but many scientists suggest that a large portion of the population suffers from “cannabinoid deficiency.” Without sufficient dietary cannabinoids, the human endocannabinoid system operates at less than peak efficiency. This may lead to a general health decline. Supplementing our diets with full-spectrum phytocannabinoids could play an essential role in optimizing health.
