Exploring The Entourage Effect

For those new to the field of hemp or CBD products, the sheer number of phrases products and types can be a little overwhelming. But a phrase he may have seen repeatedly, whether it was at the store, from a friend, or a magazine, is the "entourage effect." Essentially, within every cannabis plant are a variety of compounds called cannabinoids. This includes compounds like CBD, CBG, and CNG. Much like you have a better time when you and your best friends get to go out for a night on the town, these cannabinoids are more effective when they're allowed to work together. But there's more to gain the entourage effect than just that.

Promising Reacher Research for a Promising Effect

Israel has been a major research hub for cannabis and CBD for many years, so it only makes sense that they would be the first to propose the entourage effect. In 1998, an Israeli research team were comparing the health effects of cannabinoids and synthetic medicines. Their study was the first to propose that one can adenoids were allowed to interact with each other their effects were amplified, helping to address aches and pains and other issues.

Using CBD to Experience the Entourage Effect

Whether or not you experience this the entourage effect is based on which kind of CBD product to use. Typically, you'll find two ways to create CBD products. The first is to take a hemp plant and extract just the CBD from it. This creates what's called an isolate. The other way to collect cannabinoids from the hemp plant is to extract all the compounds, vitamins, and minerals that are in the hemp plant itself. This form of CBD is called "whole plant" or "full-spectrum" oil. Because there are more compounds, and other nutrients in your full-spectrum CBD products, you are more likely to experience the entourage effect using these.

The Possible Benefits of the Entourage Effect

But why are you more likely to experience the entourage effect using a full-spectrum product rather than isolate? Essentially, the number of cannabinoids and other nutrients within a full-spectrum extract is able to target a wider variety of receptors throughout your body, and your Endocannabinoid system. The initial 1998 studies were corroborated by a 2003 study. It suggested that the entourage effect from a full-spectrum CBD product helped to limit spasms caused by MS. The whole plant extracts were found to be more effective than simple isolate extracts.

There is some evidence to suggest that full-spectrum CBD products are more effective in helping the body resist bacterial infection. When the CBD compound is bolstered by the other cannabinoids in a full-spectrum product it may help your body to resist the development of bacterial colonies.

In short, many in the field of cannabis argue that full-spectrum products are more effective than isolates because they are able to induce the entourage effect. They say that teamwork makes the dream work, and the same can be said for cannabinoids and the entourage effect.
