The two most abundant constituents of the cannabis sativa plant are THC and CBD. THC is the psychoactive component that can cause what people commonly understand as a euphoric “high” or “stoned”. The CBD molecule, conversely, is NON-PSYCHOACTIVE and does not produce the euphoric high that the THC molecule does. Researchers and doctors over the years have focused on the effects of the THC molecule and there may be adverse reactions when over-utilized, as some people do not tolerate the psychoactive effect well. Additionally, CBD has a counteractive property on the psychoactive effect of THC, so it will minimize the “high” effect and if at a proper ratio (often times 30:1 or higher) will have zero psychoactivity.
The ENTOURAGE EFFECT is the main concern when patients and doctors discuss the importance of using plant-based phytocannabinoids in dietary supplementation. Researchers have demonstrated a cumulative, synergistic effect of CBD with THC, CBDA, THCA, and other terpenes, bioflavinoids, chlorophylls, and other essential nutrients that naturally occur in the cannabis plant. Hemp-derived CBD is an excellent resource for a dietary supplement because it contains low, trace amounts of THC, in order to avoid any sort of undesired psychoactivity. The THC in our supplements, while in low trace amounts, maintains the entourage effect by utilizing as close to the original constituents of the hemp plant as possible.
