If you have ever considered buying any kind of CBD products you may well have heard of the entourage effect. CBD – or cannabidiol – is a compound that is prevalent in the cannabis plant, that can hold significant health benefits for people and animals.

Scientists have relatively recently been able to separate out the different compounds in the cannabis plant. This allows them to examine how each compound affects the body. They have discovered that CBD is beneficial to our general health and well-being but doesn’t give you the high that’s commonly associated with cannabis.

What is the Entourage Effect?

The entourage effect is a phenomenon in the cannabis plant whereby the effectiveness of CBD is enhanced when you take in conjunction with the other compounds that are found naturally in the plant.

The concept of the entourage effect is the same as your favourite band. If you have four excellent musicians playing separately, you can hear some great music. If you put them all together, that’s when the magic happens!
