As a CBD company, we are often approached by THC lovers with uncertainty of how CBD works. They usually say, "I smoke the real thing, I don't need CBD" when told about CBD benefits. The truth is, these THC lovers are missing out on one of the best experiences by combining cannabinoids - the Entourage Effect.
According to Healthline.com, entourage effect is defined as the theory that all the compounds in cannabis/hemp work together, and when taken together, they produce a better effect than when taken alone.
Let's talk some reasons why this combination of CBD and THC is becoming so popular.
The Combination May Produce Additional Therapeutic Benefits
As you may know, both THC and CBD (along with the other awesome cannabinoids) have been studied for their therapeutic benefits separately. The entourage effect allows a person to receive these benefits together with potentially more impact.
CBD Could Reduce Some Unwanted Effects of THC
There are a number of people who have noted THC made them anxious or paranoid. Now, it definitely depends on the strain, but THC alone is not for everyone. However, CBD may potentially reduce some of the unwanted effects like paranoia, hunger and fatigue.
Too High? Take CBD
One of the most interesting (and sometime entertaining) impacts of CBD has is its potential to help you come down when you are too high. Have you ever had a brownie that was so good that you just had to eat more... but it had high levels of THC in it? We've all been there. In these instances, CBD is a great option to avoid the discomfort of being overly psychoactive.
In conclusion -- THC lovers don't get too comfortable with just one cannabinoid. There are over 100+ cannabinoids to experience and they all provide different experiences. If you're curious on dosage and more information about the entourage effect, check out this healthline.com article.
Another important thing to note is that THC is illegal on a federal level, but legal under some state laws. If you want to try a product that contains THC, check the laws where you live first. However, CBD is federally legal since the passing of the Farm Bill of 2018.
There's several types of CBD products that you can use to test out this entourage effect. Here's the products we would recommend:
