The Entourage Effect + The Endocannabinoid System

What is the Entourage Effect?

As "entourage" refers to a group, this is the process of combining various ratios of cannabinoids (like THC and CBD) and terpenes to create different physical or psychological impacts other than what one of these single compounds could do on it's own. By learning about their effects, YOU can choose how to feel. Every human has their own unique chemistry, so it may take some practice to experience your desired effects, but I'm confident that if you give yourself the time and space to experiment, you'll arrive at your perfect destination!

Why is the Endocannabinoid System so important? (2)

Not only is it named after the plant that led to its discovery, it’s also one of the major systems involved in maintaining our health! Endo-cannabinoids are chemical messengers (or neurotransmitters) created by our body.

This image shows that the messenger receptors (both CB1 and CB2) are everywhere (brain, immune cells, organs)! They're also the same receptors that are targeted by many modern prescription medications. This is why introducing additional cannabinoids, such as CBD, has the potential to dramatically improve our physical and mental health!
