When discussing cannabis, most people just think of THC and CBD. According to TerraGold Plus' blog, there are over 60 different types of cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Their blog states, "CBD is most effective when it’s used in conjunction with the other beneficial compounds that are found in the hemp plant. These compounds include terpenes, flavonoids and other cannabinoids." A full-spectrum CBD oil not only contains pure CBD, it also contains these other compounds! Why is this important? Terragold's blog mentions something called the "Entourage Effect". This term was coined by an Israeli researcher named Raphael Mechoulam in 1960; he discovered that cannabinoids isolated on their own tended to be less effective than if paired with other cannabinoids. However, this doesn't mean that isolates are completely inneffective. There is evidence that suggests CBD isolate may still be very beneficial for various conditions.
