You probably know at least one person who uses CBD on a daily basis, and perhaps that person is you. It seems like just about everyone is on the CBD bandwagon these days, and for good reason: It works. CBD first seemed like just another wellness fad, but the constant inundation of success stories from enthusiastic consumers has proven that CBD is here to stay. There has never been a better time to explore the unique, versatile ways CBD can impact your health journey and enhance your day-to-day energy and vitality. If you want to take full advantage of the many benefits of CBD, then you want to make sure that you can experience “The Entourage Effect” from your CBD product.

CBD lovers unite when they discuss The Entourage Effect, because it exemplifies everything wonderful about CBD! If you are new to CBD and are not quite sure what this catchy phenomenon is, we are here to help. Especially if you love CBD, this information is crucial to savoring every benefit to the max!

The Entourage Effect: The Perks of Premium CBD

You can find CBD in many forms. From CBD isolate and phytocannabinoid-rich CBD to broad-spectrum and full-spectrum options, customers have plenty to choose from. In order to enjoy the best of everything CBD has to offer, you want to look for products that allow you to experience “The Entourage Effect.” To understand what it is and how to revel in its glory, let’s first break down what CBD actually is. Then we will help you understand why you can only experience “The Entourage Effect” from some CBD products, not all.

CBD is one of many beneficial compounds, called cannabinoids, extracted from the hemp plant. Other hemp-derived cannabinoids you may have heard of are:


Surprisingly, there are over 100 unique cannabinoids in the leaves and stalks of a single plant. The hemp plant also contains several naturally-occurring terpenes and flavonoids, which help preserve the plant’s microscopic flavors, colors, and aromas. When the hemp plant is harvested at the perfect moment, its leaves and stalks are dense with these powerful compounds. After the plant goes through an advanced, rigorous extraction process, a phytocannabinoid-rich oil remains.

“The Entourage Effect” is a simple, yet profound consequence of using high-quality, phytocannabinoid-rich CBD products. The idea is that all of those beneficial compounds work together when they enter your bloodstream, offering a synergistic experience unlike any other. Just like any good team, the cohesive group is stronger than the individuals – and with CBD, the same sentiment is true. You can experience exponentially more of CBD’s perks when you use a phytocannabinoid-rich product over a CBD isolate, which is a concentration of only the CBD compound without other cannabinoids in the mix.

To experience “The Entourage Effect,” look for phytocannabinoid-rich (PCR) CBD products. You can find broad-spectrum and full-spectrum options, and both can deliver the unparalleled synergistic benefits known as “The Entourage Effect.”

Full-Spectrum vs. Broad-Spectrum – What’s The Difference?

These two main classifications of CBD products have one very important distinction. While they both comply with the law (The Farm Bill of 2018 that made hemp-derived CBD legal), they are different for consumers.

Full-Spectrum – A full-spectrum CBD product means that the active ingredient (which is typically noted on the ingredient list as hemp oil, CBD oil, or PCR oil) contains CBD and the full array of other beneficial cannabinoids extracted from the hemp plant – including THC. However, only trace amounts of THC naturally occur in the hemp plant, so products will have a maximum amount of .3% THC – an amount considered minuscule and completely legal.

Broad-Spectrum – A broad-spectrum CBD product contains everything a full-spectrum product offers with one important exception: Broad-spectrum CBD does not contain THC. Retailers take the additional step to further purify some of their products to remove THC, the ingredient known to produce mind-altering side effects, so their product can be considered THC-Free.

While all hemp-derived CBD is not known for producing psychoactive side effects, some consumers prefer to consume THC-free products for their peace of mind. Many also like to ensure their pet-friendly CBD products don’t contain THC as well, just to be on the safe side. Both full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD products allow you to experience “The Entourage Effect” and you will enjoy it fully when you purchase a high-quality, pure CBD product from a trusted, reputable retailer.
