When you start to use CBD products you might see some terminology that you are unfamiliar with (we’re looking at you, entourage effect). We’re here to shed light on some of these and guide you through them (don’t worry, we promise it’ll be painless).
What is the Entourage Effect?
The entourage effect occurs when CBD products include other compounds found in cannabis— like THC and terpenes (more on these below). When taken in combination they work to deliver you a better effect than when taken on their own. Just like Jay-Z and Beyoncé, it’s the ultimate partnership.
How Do Terpenes Affect the Entourage Effect?
Cannabis typically tastes bitter but it is also sophisticatedly herbaceous. This unique taste comes from the terpenes which are the naturally occurring chemical compounds found in cannabis (as well as other plants and even some animals—move aside David Attennbourgh). Terpenes and THC play an important role in supporting how CBD works to affect your mind and body. This is called the entourage effect. Think of them as CBD’s ultimate wingmen that help it to excel in your system.
What is the difference between Full-Spectrum and Broad-Spectrum CBD Products?
Full-spectrum CBD products contain naturally occurring cannabis compounds, such as terpenes and other cannabinoids like very small amounts of THC (max 0.3% which is legal, meets the FDA and DEA standards of safety and is undetectable). Broad-spectrum CBD products also contain cannabis compounds but are typically free of THC. This means the superpowers of the entourage effect may be reduced because all traces of THC are removed.
What Does the Entourage Effect Mean for CBD Shoppers?
Products that contain full-spectrum CBD benefit from the entourage effect of the CBD, terpenes and THC working together. This maximizes your benefits (which can only mean a win for you).
