CBD is short for Cannabidiol

CBD is short for Cannabidiol. It’s one of approximately 116 identified natural compounds or molecules known as cannabinoids contained within the cannabis plant.

Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, it will not get you “high”. The two most recognizable molecules within the cannabis plant are CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), however, there’s also CBG, CBN, CBGN, CBG, and the list goes on.

The Importance of Terpenes

You’ve most likely experienced terpenes, for example:

  • The terpene limonene is found in citrus fruits and is responsible for the citrusy smell.
  • Linalool is the terpene found in lavender and is known for its stress relieving effects.

One of the main benefits of using a product that contains all of the naturally occurring cannabiniods and terpenes is it provides the Entourage Effect.

The Entourage Effect

The Entourage Effect is the synergistic manner in which every cannabinoid and terpene contained naturally within the plant work together to produce the best possible results. When any of the cannabiniods and terpenes stand alone, they aren’t nearly as effective as when combined together.

Imagine an orchestra’s musical instruments such as the saxophone or drums, they sound great on their own, however, when the saxophone and drums along with other musical instruments in the orchestra play together, it produces a cohesive sound that is more harmonious than any instrument by itself.

In short, the Entourage Effect is the Perfect Team!
