What Is The CBD Entourage Effect?
Joanna Zeiger, MS PhD, the Founder & CEO of Canna Research Group, provides an explanation of the CBD entourage effect and how it relates to people using cannabis when attempting to improve their health and quality of life.
What does the Entourage CBD Effect Mean For CBD Consumers?
In the potentially confusing world of CBD products, this means that in order to experience optimal health benefits you will want to find full spectrum CBD products.
If you can’t take THC, look for broad spectrum CBD products.
Simply put – The Entourage Effect means that CBD works better in combination with other cannabinoids and terpenes found in the hemp plant (including some THC), than when isolated.
As a consumer, you will want to use full-spectrum CBD products for maximum benefits.
If you can’t take THC, look for broad-spectrum CBD products.
What’s the Difference in CBD Products: CBD Isolate, Broad Spectrum, and Full Spectrum?
There are several different types of CBD products on the market that contain different compounds of the plant. These are CBD Isolate, Broad-Spectrum, and Full-Spectrum. These terms are basically referring to the makeup of the team, the synergy of the players that surround the CBD in the product.
- CBD Isolate contains no terpenes or cannabinoids other than CBD, removing potential benefits associated with the entourage effect.
- Broad Spectrum CBD contains a combination of cannabinoids and terpenes but has all traces of THC removed. It still harnesses some of this synergistic power, although the entourage effect may be reduced because these CBD products have all traces of THC removed.
- Full Spectrum CBD is packed with cannabinoids like CBD, terpenes, and trace amounts of THC–less than the national legal limit of 0.3%–to maximize your unique benefits through the entourage effect.
