The ABCs of Cannabinoids
Infinite CBD • August 13, 2021
Throughout the cannabis flower are many compounds called cannabinoids. THC and CBD are the most popular cannabinoids today thanks to the rise of cannabis awareness. Together, these compounds in combination with terpenes and cannabinoids can work to provide the body with balance. This process is the entourage effect
In general, the idea of the entourage effect is that all cannabinoids within the cannabis plant work together to affect the body. Similar to the body’s own endocannabinoid system.
It is the relationship between two compounds within in the cannabis plant that work simultaneously to channel the CB1 and CB2 neuroreceptors, states Israeli researcher Raphael Mechoulam.
The entourage effect doesn’t apply to just cannabinoids but other chemical components inside the cannabis plant as well. These mostly make up the terpene profiles of each plant.
Terpenes, ketones, esters, lactones, alcohols, fatty acids and steroids all interact with the cannabinoids to produce unique results. These compounds work together to produce a different result than when used alone. If you change the chemical compound of a cannabis plant then the effects will differ. The entourage effects explains how the effects change from strain to strain.
Finally, there are over 100 known terpenes in the cannabis plant. These have the ability to provide unique effects to customers. Our hope is that customers take advantage of the entourage effect to reach their health goals.
Terpenes are aroma and flavor within a plant. They originate in the same glands as THC, CBD and other cannabinoids, but terpenes are not only found in cannabis.
Terpenes are also found in common plants like mangos, lavender, citrus fruits, fruit rinds, black pepper, trees and cotton. When inhaled or ingested, terpenes work with cannabinoids and interact with the endocannabinoid system to provide synergistic effects.
