What is the Entourage Effect?
This is what happens when a mammal receives the benefits from all the compounds of the cannabis plant. The idea is that you get the maximum benefits from using the entire plant rather than only one aspect or element, boosting the health benefits of the cannabinoids. The synergy of working with the other compounds like terpenes in the cannabinoids are boosted.
Raphael Mechoulam and Shimon Ben-Shabat are the two scientists credited with understanding what would later become known as the entourage effect. Dr. Mechoulam had previously discovered that the human body produces cannabinoids, which work with cannabinoid receptors in what we now refer to as the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Broad Spectrum Hemp has hundreds of compounds that come from the cannabis plant that interact with our bodies. The entourage effect helps boost the effects of the ingested Broad Spectrum Hemp. This natural blend of compounds creates a chain or synergy that increases the effectiveness of the compounds the precede and follow each other. You could consider this whole plant medicine, because you are receiving the benefits of every element or terpene from the plant.
