CBD and THC: The Added Benefits of The Entourage Effect

Updated: Mar 4

CBD and THC are two of the most popular compounds found in hemp-based products. They are known for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits, but what happens when they are combined? Is it better for you to consume both compounds together? In this blog post, we will explore the relationship between THC and CBD and the effects of consuming them together.

First, let's take a look at the beneficial properties of THC. THC is a psychoactive compound found in cannabis that is responsible for causing euphoric feelings and consciousness, commonly known as getting "high." While excessive amounts of THC can cause side-effects, when taken appropriately and in small doses, it has positive attributes such as:

  • Analgesic properties that can help relieve inflammation and pain

  • Relaxation properties that can lower stress

  • Drowsiness effects that can help with sleep issues

  • Appetite regulation effects

  • Muscle control properties that can help issues like seizures and spasms

  • Nausea management which can be helpful for chemotherapy patients

On the other hand, CBD is another cannabinoid that is widely used to prevent or help different chronic health problems. Unlike THC, it is non-psychoactive, so it won't get you "high." Here are some of the properties and potential applications of CBD that researchers have discovered so far:

  1. CBD has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-anxiety properties. One of the most well-known customer uses of CBD is in chronic pain. Studies have shown that CBD can be effective in reducing pain caused by conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and chronic neuropathic pain.

  2. CBD is also being studied as a potential treatment for anxiety and depression. The anti-anxiety properties of CBD may help to reduce symptoms of conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). CBD may also help to improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression.

  3. Another potential application of CBD is in the treatment of seizures and other neurological disorders. CBD studies have shown it may be effective in reducing the frequency and severity of seizures in people with conditions such as epilepsy and Dravet syndrome.

  4. CBD is also being studied for its potential anti-cancer properties. Some preliminary studies have suggested that CBD may help to inhibit the growth and spread of certain types of cancer cells.

  5. Additionally, CBD is also being studied for its potential to improve the symptoms of certain skin conditions, such as acne and psoriasis. CBD's anti-inflammatory properties may help to reduce redness and inflammation associated with these conditions.

As with any supplement or medication, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional before using CBD. It can interact with certain medications and may not be appropriate for everyone. Additionally, while there is promising research on the potential benefits of CBD, more research is needed to fully understand its effects and potential uses.

In conclusion, CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. THC is the psychoactive compound that is responsible for the "high" associated with marijuana use, "If you're interested in trying CBD for yourself, be sure to check out Easy Day Hemp's selection of high-quality, lab-tested CBD products.
