CBD, THC and the Entourage Effect

Apr 30, 2018 | Fun CBD Facts, Marijuana Products

 

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably heard of CBD and THC (even if you have no idea what they do exactly), but have you heard of the Entourage Effect? Well, if you think it’s the name of that annoyed feeling you have after watching a certain HBO show, you better keep reading.

Cannabis is a complex plant. While we know it contains 111 distinct cannabinoids, CBD and THC are the most commonly studied. To understand the Entourage Effect, you must first understand CBD and THC.

 

What is CBD?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is used for a wide variety of medical issues, helping with symptoms of autoimmune diseases, diabetes and nausea, among others. CBD does not give you the infamous “high” or “buzzed” feeling that comes with THC. There are many medical marijuana patients in Arizona who seek products with high levels of CBD like K.I.N.D. Kaps, our line of CBD-filled capsules, to treat their ailments. While some weaker CBD products are sold over the counter, you will find higher quality CBD products in state licensed dispensaries.

 

What is THC?

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) on the other hand is what is responsible for that euphoric and cerebral high most commonly associated with marijuana use. Legality becomes a factor when traveling across state lines with THC products, regardless of their medical use. If you want to medicate discreetly, check out our K.I.N.D. Concentrates Live Resin Vape Cartridges – one of our most potent products.

 

Why do you need both? The Entourage Effect, that’s why.

Much like the way our body uses Vitamin C to absorb Iron, K.I.N.D. Concentrates has found that CBD and THC work best when taken together. This is called the “Entourage Effect.” As you may already know, there are currently products that have 100% CBD or 100% THC, but what is most effective for pain relief is a blend of both. Through tireless research, we have found that the most effective ratio of THC to CBD is 1 to 10, 1-part THC to 10-parts CBD. This will give patients the benefits of CBD’s pain-relieving properties without the high that comes with THC.

 

The Takeaway

Whether you choose CBD, THC or both, we believe that medical marijuana patients in Arizona will find exactly what they are looking for wherever K.I.N.D. Concentrates are sold.
