While CBD is a powerful medicine on its own, it’s important to note that the compound’s effects are amplified when combined with other cannabinoids, something known as the ‘entourage effect’. Cannabis is known to contain more than 100 cannabinoids, most in trace quantities. The entourage effect is the idea that combinations of cannabinoids work together in synergy to produce certain therapeutic effects.
A ground breaking 2015 study has documented the superior therapeutic properties of whole plant CBD-rich cannabis extract as compared to single-molecule cannabidiol (CBD)*1. This study showed that administration of pure, single-molecule CBD resulted in a bell-shaped dose-response curve, meaning that when the amount of CBD exceeded a certain point its therapeutic impact declined dramatically. “Healing was only observed when CBD was given within a very limited dose range, whereas no beneficial effect was achieved at either lower or higher doses.” Rather than showing a bell-shaped curve, where at therapeutic effect could only be achieved at a certain concentration of pure CBD, the whole plant CBD-rich extract caused a direct, dose-dependent inhibition of pain, and inflammation. More over, the researchers found that only a small amount of whole plant CBD was needed for significant pain relief compared to the much larger amount of pure CBD required to achieve the same analgesic effect.
