A significant part of alternative medicine that has been used in ancient healing arts for thousands of years involve the use of the entire plant as a holistic approach to therapy. This concept has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Ayurveda, and modern alternative disciplines that make use of whole-plant medicines.
This concept of using several parts or even the whole plant, instead of isolating only particular compounds, is the main concept of the reputed Entourage Effect that has grown in popularity among users of legal cannabis products like CBD capsules and topical CBD oil balm.
Mounting evidence based on sound scientific research have been published in support of this Entourage Oil effect, which basically states that the whole and its parts in their natural, synergistic state may be more therapeutically effective that individual medical substances extracted from isolated chemical compounds. Products from a reputable CBD shop that exhibit these attributes are good examples.
The concept may be confusing for those who are not familiar with it, but the following infographic from Love CBD can be a very useful graphical presentation that can let you better understand these chemical compounds and how they can interact with each other to generate Entourage Effect.
Among these compounds include CBD (Cannabidiol), CBDA (Cannabidiolic Acid), CBG (Cannabigerol), CBD (Cannabichromene), amino acids, essential oils and terpenes which is a hydrocarbon that gives off the aromatic properties of plants. Knowing these compounds may give you a better understanding of what CBD products to look for from a good and reputable CBD oil shop in the UK or anywhere else in the world.
