The Benefits of a CBD “Entourage Effect”
Are you an experienced CBD user or just a beginner? Everyone can benefit from learning about the “entourage effect”. A new way of experiencing hemp CBD at a new level for supporting the body is by this special effect known as the “entourage effect.”
Who discovered the “entourage effect”?
In 1998, there were two Israeli scientists that had a discovery with CBD. They discovered that cannabinoids would work better with the human endocannabinoid system when taken with the fatty acids and these are in a cannabis plant. Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, the scientist who first discovered that humans produce cannabinoids in their own bodies, and Dr. Shimon Ben-Shabat’s research supported the study that the “entourage effect” worked better with full spectrum CBD rather than with CBD Isolate.
In 2009 G. Ulrich-Merzenich and H. Wagner took the theory a little further. They described the entourage effect as having these four factors:
- “The ability to affect many different targets and areas of the body.”
- “The ability to improve the absorption of the active ingredients by the body.”
- “The ability to better overcome bacterial defense mechanisms.”
- “The ability to minimize adverse side effects.”
How Does Cannabinoid’s Play a Role on the “Entourage Effect”?
Cannabinoid’s can affect the body differently. Full spectrum CBD can be so beneficial to the body, since it contains the whole plant. The full spectrum of terpenes and cannabinoids in the hemp plants is what creates the “entourage effect”.
High CBD Dose
The founders of Aloha Hemp, Clint and Shelly have experienced the “Entourage effect” with taking higher doses of hemp CBD. They both felt a sense of being in the complete present moment without any worry, fear or stress. In addition, this has been a part of what they experience when taking higher doses of CBD. “The environment around you feels like it’s at a relaxed pace, even though our brain is processing things faster.” -Clint Johnson. Most importantly, they both felt they were are able to focus at an incredible level that they have never felt before.
One would think that by taking a higher dose of full spectrum CBD it would put one to sleep. Clint and Shelly had a different experience when they took 2 droppers full of their 750mg Hawaiian Roots during the day. CBD works with our melatonin and serotonin hormones. Therefore, when taking during the day, it can give us more energy. If CBD is taken at night it can put us in the deepest night sleep.
Altogether, Clint and Shelly became inspired to share their experience with others with some CBD challenges. By putting together the Aloha Hemp high CBD dose challenges and beginner CBD challenges, other people may be able to experience the same.
