The Entourage Effect

What it is and Why you Should Care.

In addition to the more commonly referenced CBD and THC, the cannabis flower also contains hundreds of therapeutic compounds known as cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and fatty acids. While THC and CBD can offer benefits when isolated (especially when used in topical applications like our Tactical Cream), these benefits can be accentuated by taking a product produced with a whole- plant extraction method. This "full spectrum" approach offers the holistic benefits of all the cannabis compounds especially in the way they interact with the Endocannabinoid System.

It's this observed synergy within the cannabis plant that has been named the “Entourage Effect.”

Your Body, Amplified

There is mounting evidence that suggests that the components within the cannabis plant have a stronger positive influence within the body in their whole and natural state.

This synergistic effect results when the many components within the cannabis plant interact with the human body to produce a stronger influence than any one of those components on its own.

When we combine multiple compounds in their natural state, we don’t end up with the sum of each part; instead, we get a multiplying effect. The different compounds can amplify each other’s chemistry, making the overall plant more effective in addressing unwanted symptoms.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.


The Right CBD for the Right Product.

This holistic approach is not to discredit the power of CBD isolates as it pertains to treating specific issues. When used in products like our Tactical CBD Cream, CBD isolates can be very powerful indeed, but when looking at the effectiveness in an oil concentrate we are suggesting that one may be able to maximize the effect on the body and it's many processes when using a product derived from whole- plant extraction.

It's also important to note that these effects are not instantaneous and immediate. Although some short-term benefits have been noted by many, the major benefit of the Entourage Effect can be attained by utilizing our products as part of a daily health regime.
