What is the Entourage Effect?

2 Minute Read

And what the heck does it have to do with pizza?

You know that saying the whole is greater than the sum of its parts?” That’s the simplest way to define what cannabis researchers call the entourage effect.” 

It refers to the synergy or combined greater effect that can occur when various compounds (phytocannabinoids) in the cannabis plant work together in unison.

For this reason, it’s thought that full or broad spectrum CBD or THC extracts—which include more parts of the plant—could offer more potential benefits than taking one isolated phytocannabinoid (CBD or THC) on its own.1 Make sense? 

It’s kinda sorta like eating pizza (which, by the way, we looove here at Mood Ring). Sure, tomatoes, cheese, garlic, and all the spices and toppings taste pretty stellar on their own. But wouldn’t you agree, they all taste and satisfy your appetite so much better when all the ingredients are baked together in a nice and savory whole pie? We’ll admit this is a bit of a stretch, and some scientists out there are probably rolling their eyes at us right now, but seriously, the general idea is the same. 

Oh yeah, apologies if you’re reading this and have hours to go before lunch or dinner. Or breakfast if pizza for breakfast” is your thing. We had no idea when you’d click on this post. Honest.
