What Is The Entourage Effect?

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The entourage effect refers to how various cannabinoids and other natural constituents work together synergistically to magnify their potential therapeutic properties. Introduced in 1998, a study by Israeli researchers Shimon Ben-Shabat and Raphael Mechoulam, the entourage effect theory maintains that isolated or synthetic cannabinoids aren’t as effective at eliciting curative effects as when all of the natural constituents work together harmoniously. While it’s the two major cannabinoids — cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – that garner most of the attention for their ability to provide therapeutic relief, in reality, these cannabinoids work in conjunction with over 400 additional compounds to treat a multitude of medical ailments. When cannabinoid oil is derived from the plant’s stalk and seeds, the extraction process draws out all of the plant’s terpenes, essential fatty acids, waxes, carbohydrates, fibre, protein, magnesium, iron, calcium, chlorophyll, flavonoids, and vitamins A, B, C, and E, and beta-Carotene, as well as other various cannabinoids. This “full-spectrum” oil allows you to take advantage of the whole plant and it’s natural healing properties.

 

Benefits of the Entourage Effect By working together synergistically, the whole plant extract of cannabinoids and other natural constituents are able to affect multiple targets throughout the body. One recent study investigating cannabinoids’ potential therapeutic effect on muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis found whole plant extract to be more effective than administering THC alone. The entourage effect also improves the absorption of active ingredients. Because cannabinoids are chemically polar compounds, sometimes it can be difficult for them to be absorbed. The other natural constituents may help improve their absorbability and viability. Cannabinoids and natural constituents that work together also are able to better overcome bacterial defence mechanisms. While cannabinoids have shown to be potentially effective for treating bacterial infections, bacteria develop defence mechanisms over time. The other non-cannabinoid constituents found in cannabis also have antibacterial properties, utilizing other pathways to combat the bacteria.

 

While working together, cannabinoids and other natural constituents also minimize unwanted side effects. While THC alone can cause a euphoric response, and at times elicit anxiety and paranoia, CBD has shown it can modulate those unwanted effects. When a complex mix of cannabinoids works in tandem with the essential nutrients and other natural components, they’re better able to provide their therapeutic and healing effects.

What the Difference? CBD Oil Vs. Full Spectrum Hemp Oil…

 

CBD has become a popular supplement option for many, offering more choice than is ordinarily possible when taking supplements. When shopping (overseas only) for CBD oils and other CBD products or talking to your doctor, you will usually and a choice between different strength oils. Depending on the brand, there may also be a range of flavours to select from.

 
 
 
 

What many people are not aware of is that there is a third choice when shopping for CBD oils. There is an opportunity to choose between a CBD-only (aka ‘isolate’) oil and full-spectrum hemp oils (which contain CBD and hundreds of other Active Botanical Compounds). The difference between CBD isolates and full-spectrum is one of the most important areas of understanding that you need in order to get the best outcome for yourself or your loved ones. And, it is the area most often misunderstand.

 
 
 

CBD isolate oils are made by extracting CBD from either hemp or marijuana plants. Some companies prefer to use hemp plants as they do not contain the cannabinoid THC, which can cause psychoactive effects. Some countries also place a limit on the amount of THC that can exist in CBD oil. In Australia, for example, CBD oils cannot contain more than 0.3% THC and probably soon no more then 50mg/kg of CBD.

 
 
 

The way in which CBD is extracted and the filtration methods that are used to create CBD oils vary. This variation will determine whether an oil contains the full-spectrum of bene􀀁ts the plant offers or just the benefit of CBD. There is still much debate as to whether CBD isolate or full-spectrum CBD oils are better, but it’s commonly accepted that CBD alone has a beneficial effect in either very small or very large doses, whereas Full Spectrum Hemp Oil is expected to have an increased bene􀀁t the more that is taken (up to the maximum a person or mammal can assimilate at a time).

 

So, let’s take a look at prescription CBD isolate vs. full-spectrum hemp oil and you can work out which one you think is right for you…

 
 
 

What Is Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil?

 
 
 

Full-spectrum oil contains not only CBD (cannabidiol), but also all the other cannabinoids that naturally occur within both hemp and cannabis plants. By using full-spectrum CBD oils, you can benefit from a range of different cannabinoids. The oils also contain naturally occurring terpenes, essential oils, and flavonoids from within the plant.

 

Cannabis and hemp plants contain hundreds of different cannabinoids, including the two most well-known: CBD and THC. Additionally, there are plenty of lesser-known cannabinoids such as CBDa, CBC, and CBG. All of the different cannabinoids found within full-spectrum oils help to improve the effectiveness of CBD. But they also have their own health benefits.

 

Full-spectrum oils are preferred by many as they are thought to pack even more health benefits than CBD isolate oils. Full-spectrum CBD oil allows you to take advantage of the entourage effect. Whereby all of the different cannabinoids from within the plant work in synergy to enhance their impact.

 
 
 

How Do You Make Full Spectrum Oil?

 
 
 

To create a full-spectrum oil, CBD is not extracted from the cannabis/hemp plants, in fact nothing is extracted. Instead the plant undergoes an infusion process to allow the natural transfer of all the active botanical goodness from the plant into the oil, in exactly the same ratios that 28 million years of evolution has found to be the best.

 
 
 

What About Getting High?

 
 
 

Whilst Infusion doesn’t remove any THC present, the natural levels are of THC are legal and don’t cause a ‘high’ (less than 0.2-0.3%).

 
 
 

Conclusion

 
 
 

CBD isolate requires a much more intensive filtration process. This is because all cannabinoids, other than CBD, need to be removed.

 
 
 

Some people believe full-spectrum CBD oils to be more natural than CBD isolate, as they retain most of the compounds from within the plant, and therefore a much healthier option.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

What is Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil and Why is it Important?

 

Full-spectrum hemp oil refers to when the entire hemp plant and all it contains, the cannabinoids and compounds found in the original hemp plant are used to make the oil you buy. Unlike isolated or synthetic cannabinoids, full-spectrum hemp oil also contains an array of essential vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, fibre, flavonoids, and terpenes, not just a single extracted cannabinoid such as CBD (often in doses far higher than the can be used, just for marketing purposes).

 

Why is Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Important? The value of full-spectrum hemp goes beyond it being a source of just CBD. The array of cannabinoids and other natural constituents found in full-spectrum hemp oil work have been shown in studies to work together in what’s referred to as the “entourage effect.” Together, these compounds work harmoniously to magnify their therapeutic properties. The complex mix of cannabinoids, essential nutrients, protein, and healthy fats work synergistically to encourage homeostasis and balance in our health.

 
 
 
 

Cannabinoids Full-spectrum hemp oil contains dozens of cannabinoids. One of the most abundant cannabinoids found in hemp oil is cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound shown to have many benefits in studies.

 

Hemp oil also contains the cannabinoid ‘Cannabidiolic Acid’ (CBDa). In live hemp, CBDa is more abundant than CBD. Often times hemp oil will undergo a heating process called decarboxylation, which changes CBDa into CBD and offers those seeking the highest levels of CBD a more ideal product.

 

A combination of CBD and CBDa should make up over 90% of the cannabinoid content in good full-spectrum hemp oils.

 
 
 

Other more major cannabinoids found in full-spectrum could include cannabigerol (CBG), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and cannabinol (CBN). You can learn more about these cannabinoids and what studies have so far discovered about their potential therapeutic benefits here.

 
 
 

You can learn about the entourage effect, whereby a combination of the compounds in hemp has a far greater effect than any single element on its own.

Vitamins and Minerals Full-spectrum hemp oil also contains a wide list of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. Present are vitamins A, C, and E., and well as B complex vitamins like riboflavin, thiamine, and niacin. Hemp oil is also a source of vitamins that are commonly not sufficiently present in many diets, including beta-carotene. Minerals are essential for a variety of bodily functions, nerve function and metabolic processes. They’re also important for building strong bones and the health of our blood, skin, and hair. Full-spectrum hemp oil contains minerals like magnesium, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, and iron.

 

Essential Fats and Protein Full-spectrum hemp oil is a healthy source of protein, which is instrumental in building and repairing tissues. Health officials recommend refraining from regularly eating red meat because it’s higher in saturated fat, but hemp oil is a heart-healthy source of all 20 amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids that must be provided through the diet. Essential fatty acids are necessary for maintaining heart and cardiovascular health. The two primary essential fatty acids — Omega 3 and Omega 6 — are ideally consumed at a ratio of around 3:1. Unfortunately, in the typical western diet, that ratio is close to 25:1. Full-spectrum hemp oil offers the two essential fatty acids in the optimal 3:1 ratio.
