Medical Marijuana: Understanding the Entourage Effect

Medical  Marijuana:If you’ve heard or read anything about cannabis, you have definitely come across the term, “The entourage effect.” Medical marijuana is made up of THC, CBD, phenolics and terpenes. The CBD is known to bind to receptors and is thought to regenerate cells and brain function, while THC helps to relax and alleviate the physical symptoms of anxiety and stress. Terpenes are made up of the green part of the plant that have additional healing mechanisms, much like those in green-leafy vegetables. The Bioactivites of phenolics include flavonoids, spiroindans, dihyrostilbenes, dihydrophenanthrenes, lignanamides, steroids and alkaloids.

When combined and taken all together, these compounds have an entourage effect within the body and can attribute to multiple modalities of healing. This entourage effect’s ratios of THC and CBD can be adjusted and blended for specific disorders or patient needs.

There is a great deal of science that goes into combining effective amounts of THC, CBD, Terpenes and Phenolics.

THC
THC can help with pain, nausea and muscle spasms.

CBD
CBD works to alleviate anxiety, destroys cancer cells, and it is anti-inflammatory

PHENOLICS AND TERPENES
The bioactive compounds and the green, healthy components of the phenolics and terpenes, can also be tweaked to increase healing and to intensify the potency and effectiveness of both CBD and THC.

DOSAGES
There are different responses based on curves. For example, when CBD is given at a medium dosage, it’s actually more effective than at lower or higher doses. However, when combined to peak the entourage effect, even lower and higher dosages of CBD are adequately effective.

The combination of these elements are what makes a full-spectrum product. If you are trying to use CBD oil over the counter, you will want to make certain that it’s a full-spectrum product. This is the same reason that the source of where all of these plants come from is vital. It should be from a reputable farm that is certified and uses state of the art extraction protocols, along with expert combination and compounding formulations.

Our brain and nerve cells have cannabinoid receptors, so our bodies naturally react to cannabis
(medical marijuana). The structure of cannabis interacts directly with our cells. Our natural endocannabinoid system works synergistically with medical marijuana, creating a multitude of beneficial reactions in the body. The endocannabinoid cells have tiny receptors that take in chemicals and produce responses. This natural system in our bodies regulates things like mood, sleeping, immunity, pleasure, memory and much more.
