Many people have been asking about the Entourage Effect, how it works, and the best way to achieve the mood or experience you want. So it’s understandable that if you’re new to cannabinoids, you might have questions about the Entourage Effect.
In the following article, we’ll take a closer look at what the Entourage Effect is and why it’s so important!
What Is the Entourage Effect?
The Entourage Effect is the feeling humans experience when they smoke, vape, or consume cannabis and hemp products, which then interact directly with their Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS comprises a series of receptors linked together, and scientists believe that the ECS could be responsible for regulating several critical bodily functions, including memory, sleep, mood, reproduction, immune responses, and hormones. So whether or not you have tried a cannabis product, you still have an ECS.
Different cannabinoids, such as CBD or Delta-8 THC, provide the effects, but it’s the terpenes (the smell or aroma of the plant), such as myrcene or limonene, which guide how effective the cannabinoids will be.
When you combine terpenes with cannabinoids, you get the whole experience, which is different from when you use a cannabinoid product that simply contains cannabinoids, known as an isolate. Based on the chemistry, different cannabinoids, such as Delta-8, CBD, CBG, etc., interact better with other terpenes, such as caryophyllene, linalool, limonene, etc., to provide a whole experience. If you have ever smelled different cannabis products and found the aroma of some more appealing than others, it could be your body telling you what you need!
What Are Full-Spectrum Cannabis Products, and Why Are They So Important to Us?
When you purchase or use a full-spectrum cannabis product, you’re using a product that contains the full range of cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils, and plant material specific to that plant. In comparison, an isolate product will only contain a specific cannabinoid with everything else, including minor cannabinoids and terpenes, stripped away. In addition, some manufacturers add artificial terpene back into the product at the end of the manufacturing process to give it a familiar smell or taste. Many cannabis or hemp vape products utilize isolates in this way, with artificial flavors added for the consumer.
The best way to experience the Entourage Effect is to use cannabis products that are full-spectrum and give you a full panel of system-elevating cannabinoids and terpenes. The Entourage Effect is continuously being studied by scientific institutions such as the National Institute of Health so that we get a better understanding of how it works, its benefits, and the healing powers of the Entourage Effect for humans.
The Entourage Effect – When Cannabinoids Meet Terpenes!
