What is the entourage effect?
Most people can only name one or two cannabinoids, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), but there are over 100 different cannabinoids within the cannabis plant. While a lot of research is focused on the effects of individual cannabinoids, emerging evidence suggests that there may be important synergies between these cannabinoids. New therapeutics that combine cannabinoids in innovative ways could dramatically improve outcomes.
Most animal studies with cannabidiol utilize synthetic, single-molecule CBD produced by biochemical laboratories for research purposes. In contrast, whole plant extractions typically include CBD, THC, and more than 400 trace compounds. Many of these compounds interact synergistically to create what scientists refer to as an “entourage effect” that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components—so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.
Our CBD products contain whole plant extract! We do not produce from isolate alone.
