Entourage effect

The phenomenon that all compounds in the cannabis plant, including cannabinoids, terpenes, and more, work together synergistically to provide greater effects and health benefits than by themselves when consumed—the sum is greater than the whole of the parts. Because of this, many cannabis consumers subscribe to whole plant medicine, as opposed to consuming isolated cannabinoids or other compounds.  

“As a medical patient, I prefer smoking flower because the entourage effect gives me more health benefits than consuming THC isolate.”
