What is the Entourage Effect?

Upon taking a closer look at cannabis buds you’ll find that they are covered in sticky dots of resin. Resin contains hundreds of therapeutic compounds that contribute to how cannabis affects and benefits us. Two of the most famous and well-known compounds are THC and CBD but there are so many other factors that work together and create unique benefits. This is what we refer to as “the entourage effect.”

The Entourage Effect Explained

There are hundreds of botanical compounds that our bodies take in when we smoke and vaporize cannabis. Each one of these compounds arrives with different effects and these effects may change in the presence of other compounds which is known as the entourage effect. 

To look at it from a different perspective, imagine how your mood or attitude might change depending on who you are with. If you’re in a room full of strangers your personality might not come through as much as it would if you were surrounded by people you know.

For example, THC and CBD have their own effects separately, THC is what provides more of a head high and CBD has a calming effect. When THC and CBD are combined they work together to reduce pain, reduce anxiety and depression symptoms, and much more. There are plenty of other compounds found in cannabis such as CBN, CBC, CBG, and so many more. With so many diverse compounds the possible combinations of effects that can be produced are endless.
