The chemical content of cannabis and hemp such as cannabinoids, fatty acids, terpenes, and flavonoids are combined in a single biochemical reaction when non-isolate products are taken, and the accompanying reaction is usually called the Entourage Effect. The entourage effect signifies a beneficial influence of the chemical substances in cannabis resulting from their combination. These chemical components have their individual effects but they produce a more potent effect when working collectively. 

In basic terms, the entourage effect is an optimum manifestation of the therapeutic properties of CBD and THC. The effect is felt in the body as a stronger influence is created from the synergy between the body and all the active ingredients in hemp. Hemp contains dozens of naturally occurring phytocannabinoids, and each of these phytocannabinoids, CBD, THC, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids have specific effects in the body. By taking in broad-spectrum CBD products, it is possible to get a combination of the beneficial effects brought about by each of the individual effects of the active ingredients.

Although the main focus is usually on THC and CBD, several other cannabinoid compounds naturally found in hemp are known to possess anti-inflammatory and beneficial effects just as THC and CBD. For instance, Alpha-Pinene and Linalool are known to relieve intestinal problems and anxiety respectively. When combined with CBD and THC, the result is a potent cure for some gastro-intestinal troubles which still keeps the user relaxed and happy.

In summary, the combined interactions of scores of cannabinoids and terpenes, collectively influencing components of the endocannabinoid system to give better healing properties is called the “entourage effect”.
