What is the “Entourage Effect”?

CBD products are becoming more popular in the health and wellness industries, and retailers are continuing to jump into the mix. As CBD popularity continues to skyrocket, one of the industry’s biggest complications is understanding the actual effect CBD has on people and how it works. The CBD product can be extracted to multiple levels, and each has differences that are important to the user. A qualified, GMP certified CBD manufacturer will harness all those unique properties and utilize them for the best benefit overall.

The Entourage Effect

Full spectrum CBD contains under the legal limit of THC, which is 0.3%. This may concern the consumer to see THC in a product, but there is no need to worry. CBD does not have psychoactive effects. When hemp is grown for CBD and is harvested and extracted properly, it will contain less than 0.3% THC. In order to experience psychoactive effects, the hemp plant would have to contain a significantly higher percentage of THC. 

The entourage effect refers to how THC and CBD react with each other. To put it simply, when you have a full spectrum product containing both CBD and THC, they will react together in a way that your body will benefit the greatest from. Broad spectrum products will not have as powerful an effect because they do not have the THC to interact with. Both are wonderful options, and which is better entirely depends on the consumer and their preferences.
