The Entourage Effect of Full-Spectrum CBD Oil

by MARK3 CBD |

If you follow cannabis news and information, you may have heard about the “entourage effect.” The term refers to how cannabidiol (CBD) works together with other similar molecules to enhance overall therapeutic effects for patients. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound in cannabis that reduces inflammation, relieves pain, and exhibits many other positive health effects. 

The CBD molecule manifests in various forms, which together produce an entourage effect among non-THC cannabinoids and other ingredients in CBD oil. 

Components of Full-Spectrum CBD Oil 

Full-spectrum CBD oil contains natural cannabinoids called phytocannabinoids. CBD is the most widely known phytocannabinoid – but there are others, including the following compounds:

As you can see, the various cannabinoids in CBD oil complement each other’s effects. CBD has the most complete range of benefits, but the other cannabinoids may offer some of the same benefits, sometimes through different metabolic pathways. So, with full-spectrum CBD oil, you multiply your health benefits.

Additionally, any good full-spectrum CBD oil will also contain terpenes. While cannabis contains many terpenes, these compounds are not unique to cannabis plants. Terpenes are what cause plants to have unique odors. For example, there is a terpene that produces a pine smell and another that is responsible for a lemon fragrance. But terpenes play a more important role than simply smelling pleasant.

Many terpenes also may act as anti-inflammatory agents, reducing pain and irritation in the human body. Other terpenes, like myrcene, can directly block pain and also help fight off harmful bacteria. Other terpenes, such as linalool, may lessen anxiety and enhance mood. MARK3 Full-Spectrum CBD Oil has an abundance of these terpenes.

 

How the Entourage Effect Works

It is well-established that CBD and other cannabinoids impart multiple health benefits like better sleep, less anxiety, seizure control in some patients, pain reduction, and much more. Likewise, we know that terpenes are also helpful for a plethora of health issues. So, each of these substances is useful on its own, but they become even better when combined.

Cannabinoids affect two receptor pathways in humans, CB1 and CB2. However, not every cannabinoid affects both of these pathways, and some cannabinoids only partially affect a certain pathway. By using full-spectrum CBD oil, you can be assured that you are getting all the beneficial cannabinoids so that the maximum benefits are triggered. When both pathways are fully in use, you will optimize pain relief, anxiety reduction, sleep improvement, and more.

Additionally, terpenes provide cumulative effects when combined with cannabinoids. Terpenes do not use the CB1 and CB2 pathways. Instead, they reduce inflammation, combat dangerous bacteria, reduce anxiety, and help in other ways through a more direct route. While all the cannabinoids of MARK3 Full-Spectrum CBD Oil are helping you via the CB pathways, the terpenes are also promoting your health through other molecular channels.

To receive the full benefits of CBD oil, you need full-spectrum CBD oil. You can trust the purity and efficacy of organic, USA-grown MARK3 Full-Spectrum CBD Oil to deliver optimized health.
