What is The Entourage Effect of CBD?

When conducting research into cannabis and CBD specifically, the entourage effect will consistently come up. The entourage effect is a phenomenon often associated with cannabis where cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds produce a combined effect that is far more powerful than a single ingredient used in isolation. One way of considering the entourage effect is to imagine the compounds of the hemp plant working as a team instead of each compound effecting the body in its own individual manner.

Alta Flora & Cannacares Announce Partnership to Offer Symptom Tracking for CBD Consumers

Within the burgeoning UK cannabis industry there is a tremendous need to build both clinical and real-world evidence to support the efficacy of cannabinoid treatments. Existing cannabis-based medications offer little intellectual property protection due to the difficulty of patenting a specific indication of cannabis.
