It only takes a quick glance through our collection to realize that we’re not just about Cannabidiol (CBD) here. In fact, for effective CBD products like our CBD 8% oil, the product needs more of this cannabinoid alone. Since the effectiveness of CBD oil really depends on the other ingredients in the product – the synergy between the active ingredients we call the “entourage effect”.
Full Spectrum – Cannabinoids in industrial hemp (hemp)
To understand the “entourage effect”, it is important to know what CBD oil really is. Because although the name doesn’t show it, good oil contains more than just CBD. Cannabidiol is obviously the most important ingredient, since you wouldn’t have “CBD” oil without it. Although good CBD oil is made with industrial hemp extracts that contain more than just this cannabinoid. The so-called “full spectrum CBD oil”… (full spectrum CBD oil)
Industrial hemp plants contain a wide variety of different active ingredients, the most important of which are categorised as cannabinoids and terpenes. And while CBD (and THC) are the most well-known cannabinoids in the world, there are believed to be several hundred cannabinoids in industrial hemp plants. With more than 150 cannabinoids currently identified, there are still new cannabinoids on a regular basis! Other cannabinoids you may have heard of in the past are Cannabigerol (CBG, as it is in our CBG oil ), CBC and CBN. among others.
Although while some producers only focus on a high level of CBD in their oil to advertise, this is not the best way to increase the effectiveness of the product. Since it is a collaboration between all the cannabinoids present in hemp extracts and CBD oil, which produce the best effect on your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). This is what we call the “entourage effect”, a well-known phenomenon in cannabinoid and supplement therapy. So, guess what we’re focusing on?
Exactly! Our main goal is to produce CBD oil with the widest possible variety of cannabinoids. This ensures that Dutch Natural Healing’s CBD oil is full-spectrum and provides the best “entourage effect” so you can enjoy maximum health and overall wellness benefits. This requires our full commitment, from growing industrial hemp to filling oil bottles. Although cannabinoids are not the only ingredients needed to produce a powerful “entourage effect”. In addition to these important molecules, the best “entourage effect” needs terpenes.
Aromatic terpenes in CBD oil
Terpenes are the aromatic compounds that give medicinal and industrial hemp varieties their distinctive smell. In different compositions, terpenes such as Myrcene, Limonene and Linalool – among others – produce an aromatic profile or “terpene profile”. These terpene profiles are the exact types that help identify different cannabis varieties (cultivars or strains) – and more. Since these terpenes drive the therapeutic effect of cannabinoids in the body.
In fact, it could be said that terpenes are as important or perhaps even more important than cannabinoids for the effectiveness of cannabinoid supplements. Naturally, we not only focus on the wide variety of cannabinoids in our CBD oil, but you can be sure that our products are also the richest in terpenes. Because the closer our CBD oil comes to the plant, the stronger the “entourage effect”, and the overall effectiveness of the product. Discover it for yourself!
