The hemp plant (well, and marijuana) contains over a hundred different chemical compounds called cannabinoids.
Several research suggests these compounds may offer a range of therapeutic effects when used independently.
Several other studies say the compounds offer more potency when used together; a result popularly called the ‘entourage effect.’
The entourage effect concept explains the collaborative result when users consume a combination of chemicals in the hemp plant – including cannabinoids and some good traces of terpenoids and terpenes. Such effects, users say, surpasses what’s obtainable from any single compound.
Researchers have sampled several help conditions to test the entourage effect.
For instance, a British Journal of Pharmacology research publication shows that phytocannabinoids and terpenes, in synergy, may offer better results for conditions, including anxiety, epilepsy, pain, cancer, inflammation, a fungal infection.
A 2010 study that compared a THC-CBD product to a THC-only alternative in handling cancer-related pain. The THC+CBD product was found to deliver higher effects thins THC-only for cancerous pain.
A 2018 review assessed the effects of a pure CBD Vs. a CBD-dominant marijuana extract in handling severe epilepsy. The research authors conclude that high-CBD products offered greater improvement, and, surprisingly, with less adverse reactions compared to CBD-only doses.
The researchers link the synergetic effect to the interaction of CBD with other phytocannabinoids.
THC is widely known for its euphoric effects. While some seek the intoxicating property, others only desire the therapeutic promises, without the brain-hitting effects. This makes CBD important.
Research says CBD can counteract THC’s psychoactive nature. With its negligible side effects, health seekers can explore the safe and no-high twist of marijuana’s therapeutic offers.
These are, but a few of several other studies point to the high-benefit low-side effect angle of THC-CBD products.
Yes, it does.
Many people are THC-intolerant. While they desire hemp’s therapeutic promises, they can’t stand THC. If you can relate, no worries – research shows CBD can be therapeutic independently.
If you wish to give CBD a try but without THC, prefer CBD isolate over full-spectrum CBD products.
For clarity, while isolates contain over 99 percent CBD-only concentration, the full spectrum comes with THC and all other components in the marijuana plant.
By the Farm Bill, CBD products may not exceed .3 percent THC concentrations, which is considered grossly insignificant to cause a high. But, remember this trace THC amounts can add up to ruin your drug test.
While research is still in its infancy, some results so far suggest CBD may counteract some of THC’s psychoactive properties.
Most research suggests CBD works synergistically with THC – never in conflict – presenting a more desirable experience.
That said, further research is needed to tell the exact relationship between these compounds, as well as the workings of the entourage effects.

The motivation for this write up came from one of the questions I receive regularly from readers. The person asked; “Can I cook with CBD oil?”
At first, I laughed really hard but on second thought, I reasoned that not only is the question a valid one, but there are plenty of others who might be thinking the same. I needed to write about it!
You see CBD oil is quite unlike most oils you must have tried in your cooking experiments. While it is possible to cook with CBD, there are a few rules to follow to achieve the best results and I have outlined them below.
Increasing awareness about CBD’s relatively safe profile has dropped off the long-held stigma on hemp and its products. The growing CBD-based researches and related legal barriers seem a good win for athletes.
Quickly, let’s discuss some benefits of CBD in sports:
CBD contains high-potent properties that help fortify your immunity, leaving your body infection- and stress-resistant. This translates to better functioning of body organs – a great benefit for athletes and non-athletes alike.
Exercises and training before competitions can leave you stressed and, in turn, anxious about your performance on the big day. Thankfully, CBD offers anti-anxiety and anti-stress hormones, which help you manage stress from your workouts.
Before hemp’s recent scientific research breakthrough, the plant had been the mainstay of ancient medicine.
While ancient testimonies were basically anecdotal, modern research has unveiled the individual compounds responsible for the effect cannabis users derive. Among the many compounds, one stands out – namely, CBD.
Research authors and firsthand CBD users support CBD’s ability to boost health and, in turn, improve life. This accounts for the increasing number of daily CBD users.
Quickly, this article discusses how you can experience improvement in your life from using CBD.
