When you first start using CBD products, you may come across a few terms that you are unfamiliar with (hello, entourage effect). We’re here to shed some light on some of these and help you navigate them (don’t worry, we promise it won’t be painful).
What exactly is the Entourage Effect?
The entourage effect is a phenomenon that occurs when CBD products contain other cannabis compounds such as THC and terpenes (more on these below). When taken together, they produce a greater effect than when taken separately. It’s the ultimate collaboration, just like Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
Terpenes: How Do They Affect the Entourage Effect?
Cannabis has a bitter taste, but it also has an advanced perennial flavour. Terpenes, which are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in cannabis (as well as other plants and even some animals—move over, David Attenborough). Terpenes and THC are important components in how CBD affects your mind and body. This is known as the entourage effect. Consider them CBD’s ultimate wingmen, assisting it to thrive in your system.
What is the difference between Full-Spectrum and Broad-Spectrum CBD Products?
Full-spectrum CBD products contain naturally generated cannabis compounds such as terpenes and other cannabinoids such as very small amounts of THC (up to 0.3% THC, which is legal, meets FDA and DEA safety standards, and is undetected). Broad-spectrum CBD products contain cannabis compounds as well but are typically THC-free. Because all traces of THC are removed, the entourage effect’s major nations may be diminished.
What Does the Entourage Effect Mean for CBD Shoppers?
Full-spectrum CBD products benefit from the entourage effect of CBD, terpenes, and THC working together. This maximises your benefits (which can only be a good thing).

The entourage effect underscores the significance of holistic CBD products. Full-spectrum CBD, encompassing a variety of compounds, may offer more comprehensive benefits compared to isolated CBD. When considering CBD for anxiety relief or pain management, opting for full-spectrum products might harness the entourage effect’s potential synergy. However, individual responses vary, necessitating consultations with healthcare professionals to ensure safe and effective usage.
