1.5. What is the Entourage Effect?

The entourage effect is a term given by Israeli scientists to describe the way hemp’s cannabinoids, nutrients and other compounds work together in the body.

These components including cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are a stronger influence together than any one of those components used alone.

When we combine multiple compounds in their natural state, we don't end up with the sum of the parts; we get a multiplying effect instead. The different compounds can amplify each other's effects, making the overall plant more effective in treating the unwanted medical symptoms.

Serving size is different for every person and is not necessarily condition or weight specific.  Finding the correct serving has to do with many factors and in most cases more is not better.

Start with just 1-2 mg at a time.  Titrate increasing serving size by a small amount every 2 days.
