The butterfly effect, the Doppler effect, the greenhouse effect, and the placebo effect are all concepts you’ve probably heard about. However, are you familiar with The Entourage Effect?
It’s likely that you have if you have spent any time in cannabis culture. However, you might still be unsure of its precise nature. More importantly, you might not be aware of the sensation! The Entourage Effect is covered in detail in this article so that you may understand how it functions and how to personally experience it.
What is the Entourage Effect?
Let’s take a step back and define the word entourage without adding the word effect before we get to the meat of the issue. You will gain a better understanding of the entourage effect if you do this.
The French verb entourer, which meaning “to surround,” is the root of the word “entourage.” The definition of entourage in English is more precise: A crowd gathered around or in attendance of a significant individual. An entourage, for instance, would be a group of aides accompanying a CEO, an actress, or a politician. Technically, an entourage can even include people who are not particularly significant.
Your circle of friends could be thought of as either your entourage or their entourage, and vice versa. Not that you or they aren’t significant, but you get the picture. It ultimately boils down to a group of objects encircling and travelling alongside another set of things, in this example, people (or person in the above case).
The Entourage Effect — Defined
The entourage effect is when several cannabis chemicals combine and interact to produce specific effects that aren’t feasible with the individual compounds alone. To make this notion easier to understand, we’ll look at a more generic example before we go into the specific compounds in the following section. Consider the many components in a large batch of Grape Kool-Aid — sugar, water, and one of those flavour packets — as the numerous cannabis compounds.
Although a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down and we love water and sugar on their own, it doesn’t really fill us full. And while drinking enough of water is important for being healthy, sometimes you need something more than bland water. The Kool-Aid flavour package, the final component, is simply too strong to be consumed on its own. Therefore, when viewed separately, the three elements are ok but not very noteworthy. But when you combine them, magic happens. When the components come together, they create something more than the sum of their parts.
This is an example of the entourage effect.
Synergy is a phrase used to describe the entourage effect. When two or more chemicals interact or work together, a combined effect is created that is greater than the total of the individual effects. What then are these compounds that contribute so greatly to the Entourage Effect?
So Why is The Entourage Effect So Powerful?
Cannabinoids like CBD and THC, the primary component in marijuana, are highly valued in cannabis culture. And with good cause. These substances, which are specific to the cannabis plant, play a significant role in their therapeutic effectiveness but they don’t make up the whole! Terpenes, flavonoids, and lesser-known cannabinoids (such as CBG, CBN, and THC-O) also contribute significantly to the potent sensation that is the entourage effect.
High Quality BC Weed and The Entourage Effect
Pick the best marijuana you can get if you want to experience the entourage effect for yourself. Your access to fresh, high-quality, organically-grown cannabis may be constrained by your location or the amount of money in your wallet, but anything less may fall short of what you need. Yes, buying regular or mids could help you save some money, but ultimately, you won’t be satisfied with the results. Instead, always purchase the best beasters — or even better, headies if you can afford them — for your marijuana-smoking experience.
You’ll need less marijuana when using a high-quality, organic strain like those grown at Bud Lab to have the desired entourage effect. A couple of hits of top-shelf marijuana are really effective. You can rely on Bud Lab to provide you with the freshest, best-smelling, highest-quality marijuana strain available so you may enjoy the entourage effect the way it was intended to be.
