The Entourage Effect of TerpenesUsually when one thinks about cannabis compounds the first thing that usually comes to mind is cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). What people don't know is that there are many other compounds found in the plant than just those two. Other compounds found in cannabis include CBN, CBG, CBC, and dozens of other compounds and terpenes. When we smoke or vaporize cannabis, our bodies take in hundreds of botanical compounds. Each one arrives with unique effects and benefits, and their behavior may change in the presence of other compounds. This is the entourage effect. When each compound combines together, they help the body produce a stronger influence on the body. Each compound can amplify each other's chemistry, this will then multiply the healing benefits.
