Entourage Effect

The entourage effect is a phenomenon that occurs when the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s a broad term that applies to many situations, but it typically refers to the way that cannabinoids and terpenes—the chemical compounds found in cannabis—interact with each other.

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that can affect how our bodies work, while terpenes are fragrant oils produced by plants. Both cannabinoids and terpenes have been shown to have therapeutic benefits, but they can also interact with each other in ways that enhance those benefits.

The entourage effect is one of the reasons why cannabis has been used as a medicine for thousands of years.
