THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT
The term “entourage” refers to a group of assistants or helpers surrounding a famous or important person, who assist him/her in their mission or work.
The “celebrity” in phyto-science is the THC molecule and as such all the other cannabinoids, terpenes, terpenoids and flavonoids assist THC in it’s mission in the original theory.
In cannabis research, the term is used to describe the fact that cannabinoids have greater therapeutic benefits if the molecules work together than if they act individually.
An interaction, or synergic effect, occurs when cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are allowed to work together.
