The compounding effects of THC and CBD work together to provide greater medical relief to the user. This is because THC and CBD bind to different cannabinoid receptors and in turn generate higher endocannabinoid activities.
With cannabis and cannabis-related products becoming more available to the general public, it’s important to understand how the medical compounds within the products interact with your body at a biochemical level.
Pharmaceutical companies are currently working on creating cannabinoid-specific medicine. This means that they focus on either CBD or THC as the base of their medicine.
However, the cannabis community has long been raving about “whole plant medicine” - and for good reason. Cannabinoids work together to provide a higher degree of medical relief. This process is better known as the Entourage Effect or the Net Effect.
