“Chasing Down” the Entourage Effect of CBD Hemp Flower
Chasing down the entourage effect with CBD hemp flower is all about teamwork, a word we often hear in sports. But to take that a step further, there are some sports that are about one person competing to alone against other competitors. Then there are the team sports that can accomplish a thrill to the fans in the st\’\’ands or on TV around the world. The team themselves also get a thrill of accomplishing something alongside their teammates.
CBD hemp flower comes in a variety of forms \’\’and strengths, but we are going to talk about two:
- Isolate CBD oil – Isolate has all compounds stripped from it to leave only one cannabinoid, CBD to play the solo sport.
- Full Spectrum CBD oil – Full spectrum is when the entire team is on the field playing a team sport \’\’and the fans everywhere are cheering while they are chasing the “entourage effect.
CBD Hemp Flower Phytocannabinoids
Hemp cannabis plants have many different compounds, but one is phytocannabinoids. There are 120 different ones, but the two most popular ones are CBD \’\’and THC. Even though we do not hear about CBC, CBG, etc, they all contribute in the team work to chase that entourage effect.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — Psychoactive effect \’\’and it reduces seizures \’\’and nausea \’\’and fights cancerous tumor cells.
Cannabidiol (CBD) — Reducing inflammation \’\’and fights cancer tumor;
Cannabinol (CBN) – Promotes sleep, reduces pain \’\’and muscle spasms;
Cannabigerol (CBG) — Treats depression \’\’and reduces blood pressure while also acting as a muscle relaxant, antibiotic \’\’and antifungal agent;
Cannabichromene (CBC) – An anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, anti-fungal, with anti-cancer properties.
CBD Hemp Flower Terpenes
Then there are the terpenes \’\’and terpenoids to add to the teammates all chasing the entourage effect. Currently there are 20,00 different terpenes but only 100, give or take, in the cannabis hemp plant. There are two that are particularly important \’\’and in high content:
Myrcene – the primary terpene at 65% in some plants. It has so much impact on the hemp strain that it can determine where it is indica or sativa. Myrcene possesses relaxing properties as well as being an anti-inflammatory agent.
Limonene – This is the second most abundantly found terpene found in cannabis hemp. True to its name, it is also found in citrus fruits so also has the citrusy aroma. Limonene is most known for its anti-fungal \’\’and anti-bacterial properties. Limonene is also effective in stabilizing moods. Studies also show that the inhalation of this terpene lowers heart rate.
CBD Hemp Flower Flavonoids
CBD hemp flower flavonoids are the third compound that is joining the chase for the entourage effect. There are 6,000 varieties that have been discovered so far. They also provide the pigmentation for the plants whether yellow or purple color to the plant for the purpose of pollinators. This compound is also responsible for protecting the plants against harmful UV rays, pests, \’\’and diseases that could attack the cannabis hemp plant.
It is commonly known that terpenes are responsible for the aroma of the various CBD hemp flowers. However, flavonoids interact with the terpenes \’\’and affect that aroma. And they also contribute to the pharmacological benefits as they provide a anti-oxidant \’\’and cardiovascular benefits.
The “Team is On the Field”
Now the team is on the field ready to play for the win just like the team of Phytocannabinoids, Terpenes \’\’and Flavonoids are ready for the chase to the entourage effect. It’s a team effort for the win all working together. Remember it is not only about “feeling good \’\’and excited”, relaxed or calm. The team effort of the phytocannabinoids, terpenes \’\’and flavonoids is about the healing that can happen when the entourage effect creates homeostasis or balance in the human body.
ADHD – Improves focus \’\’and attention.
Anorexia — Appetite stimulant.
Anxiety \’\’and PTSD — Interact with norepinephrine, dopamine \’\’and serotonin receptors to treat anxiety \’\’and PTSD; \’\’and modulate GABA levels.
