Entourage Effect: Full-Spectrum Vs. Isolate

A Fuller Range of Benefits.

What is the Entourage Effect and why should you choose Full-Spectrum CBD? While CBD by itself is fantastic, using only CBD may mean missing out on the full benefits found in hemp & cannabis sourced compounds.

For instance, did you know that THC & CBD are just 2 of more than 100 different cannabinoids? All animals have an “endocannabinoid system” or “ECS”, and all animals naturally produce cannabinoids.

The cannabinoids we make in our bodies interact with the ECS to help regulate our pain, inflammation, immune systems, mood and thinking. Supplementing with plant-based cannabinoids, gives us the tools to help maintain constant homeostasis, that is balance in our bodies.

While CBD & THC are most common, there’s cannabinoids like CBDV, CBG, THCV, CBN, CBC, and etc. Each cannabinoid has its own unique benefits which you might not get only having CBD & THC. This is where full-spectrum CBD has its value.

What are the benefits of other Cannabinoids?

Beyond CBD:

While CBD can help manage as sleep, chronic pain and anxiety, it may not be as effective as other cannabinoids such as a full-spectrum formula with CBG, CBDV, or THCV might be for certain ailments.

CBG may have powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which could benefit issues such as IBS, colitis and acne.

CBDV may be highly effective as an anti-acne skincare agent and could have powerful neuroprotective effects for those suffering from nausea or epilepsy.

THCV, a rare and exclusive cannabinoid, may be a greater anxiety suppressant than CBD, in addition to potential benefits for weight-loss while also boosting mental clarity. When together with THC, THCV can have powerful synergestic effects that can enhance your high by decreasing the negative effects of THC while enhancing the positive benefits.

We eat for a whole variety of vitamins and nutrients, for the most complete range of benefits. We don’t aim to have just one vitamin. A balanced diet and healthy lifestyle means having a variety of cannabinoids for the greatest range of benefits – which means having a full-spectrum CBD formula. Having many cannabinoids at once will also create a synergestic “Entourage Effect.”

What is the Entourage Effect?

When you mix CBD, CBG, CBDV, THCV and more together..

When cannabinoids are taken together, they can enhance the effects of each other. This is called the Entourage Effect. Cannabinoids are also enhanced by other plant compounds such as terpenes (smell & flavour compounds found in fruits).

When taken together (like in Full-Spectrum CBD), Cannabinoids & Terpenes can create a powerful synergestic entourage effect by:

  • Amplifying the effects of each other.
  • Balancing out the negative effects of each other.
  • Making up for what the other is lacking in benefits.

A Balancing Act

entourage effect

While THC has many benefits, using only THC has been linked to negative effects such as increased anxiety, risk of psychosis, increased depression, and of course, increased appetite. Long-term use has also been linked to reduced concentration, decreased short-term memory and impaired motor skills.

This may be because in nature THC doesn’t normally occur all by itself. Rather, it usually comes with CBD in wild cannabis plants. It’s this CBD that helps to counteract the negative effects of THC such as anxiety and paranoia – effectively “balancing it out”. It’s the entourage effect happening naturally!

If you’ve been around long time users of cannabis, you’ve probably heard some along the lines of “weed these days is too strong” and in fact they probably have a point!

As growers compete to create the most mind-blasting cannabis, THC levels in weed are rising with CBD levels falling. In one study, the ratio of THC to CBD was found to have increased from as much as 14 times to 80 times since 1995. The result is cannabis that creates a stronger high, with less CBD and other cannabinoids (CBDV, CBG, THCV), to balance out the THC.

So as growers breed cannabis with less and less CBD, Full-Spectrum CBD has become even more important to balance out the increasing levels of THC with through the entourage effect with CBD.

Synergize with Terpenes.

The Entourage Effect – Eat Fruits to Enhance Your CBD Experience!

In addition to cannabinoids, there are many plant compounds that can modulate and enhance the entourage effect of Full-Spectrum CBD.

Terpenes are responsible for the taste and smell of plants like fruits, vegetables and flowers. In cannabis, they’re what distinguishes each strain from the other. Terpenes are why lemons taste and smells like lemons, and why strawberries taste and smell like strawberries. Terpenes are naturally produced in plants and may have direct, synergistic benefits when taken with cannabinoids in full-spectrum CBD.

entourage effect

Where can you get some? Three common terpenes include caryophyllene, limonene and myrcene, which you can find in just about any kitchen. 

Caryophyllene is found in herbs and spices like black pepper, basil, oregano and of course in cannabis. It’s that spicey, powerful scent that can food its kick. Caryophyllene has been suggested to have anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.

Limonene is responsible for the distinct, citrus smell in fruits like lemons, oranges and limes and in cannabis strains like Lemon Haze. Limonene has been suggested to have anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, pain-relief, relaxative and antioxidant effects.

Myrcene is responsible for the sweet, tangy smell of fruits like mangoes and nectarines, and the scent in strains like Blue Dream and Sour Diesel. Myrcene can also be found in plants like bay leaves, hops, lemon grass, basil and rosemary. Myrcene has the synergistic effect of enhancing and strengthening the effect of THC, as it “allows more THC to reach brain cells.” Myrcene has also been suggested to have anti-pain, anti-inflammatory and sleep benefits.

In conclusion, by supplementing your Full-Spectrum CBD with natural foods, you can add boost your Entourage Effect with terpenes found in common household foods.
