Cannabis research has been growing at an incredibly fast rate. Thanks to statewide waves of legalization taking place. This research has pointed us in the direction of understanding the real depth of how cannabis works, and even now, we have barely scratched the surface.Marijuana recommendation garden grove helps understand the strain

Today we will start with the entourage effect. Unlike what people used to assume before, cannabis is a lot more beyond just CBD and THC. There is the awareness that it can get you high, relieve pain, stimulate hunger, and help you manage issues that arise from a variety of ailments. But what we know and How much there is to know, has a massive gap in the middle. 

The entourage effect is the collective effect that you feel when you consume cannabis. It is what gives marijuana “character,” according to scientists. THC, if taken in its purest form, will not be able to create any effect — just an aimless human being, roaming around, who happens to be high.

Terpenes are the organic compounds that exist in all plants which are responsible for the unique taste and smell of each plant. They occur naturally in cannabis. The easiest bare minimum way of knowing them is as simple as remembering they are the compounds that drive the whole concept of aromatherapy.  


This the terpene responsible for the way all citrus fruits smell. This is also found abundantly found in marijuana and is one of the most potent marijuana terpenes.

When used in aromatherapy, this terpene is effective in dealing with issues like stress and anxiety. Though these claims still remain unfounded, there it has shown massive potential in the areas relating to mental health.  

Most commonly experienced effects include 

  • Improvement in mood
  • Relief from anxiety, stress, and depression
