Mixing CBD and THC: What Are the Benefits of the Entourage Effect?

You may have noticed on our store page that many of our hemp-derived products mix both THC and CBD. 

Though you can still buy unmixed products with Delta 9, such as the vegan Urb Extrax Delta 9 THC Gummies, or CBD-only products, we are going to make the case that the CBD+THC products are the way to go if you are interested in using THC. 

So, what makes the mixture of THC and CBD so fine? Read on to find out. 

CBD and THC Mix Well Because of What They Have in Common 

For users, the difference between a CBD product and Delta 9 THC product is quite easy to discern by sampling the products. The latter product will cause psychoactive effects, a euphoria, while the former will offer milder wellness benefits, such as pain relief, without any psychoactive effects. Using CBD-only products is ideal for anyone who may need its wellness benefits on the go or at the office. 

The CBD and THC we use are both derived from hemp, a variety of the cannabis plant. 

As a result, both CBD and THC have much in common, chemically-speaking. In fact, they both contain the exact same chemical formula: 2 oxygen atoms, 21 carbon atoms, and 30 hydrogen atoms. The difference between the two is how these atoms are arranged. 

In chemistry, this means they are “isomers”

If you are really interested, the structural difference between CBD and THC is that CBD is an “open ring” while THC is a closed ring. The ring of CBD is closed with an acid, which when added forms a bond that results in the closed-ring THC. Voila. 

Enhancing the Best of Both Worlds with the Entourage Effect

Given how similar both THC and CBD are, it makes sense that having both of them in your system is likely to result in more of a collaboration than conflict. 

It is what’s known as “the entourage effect”. This entourage of chemical compounds can do a lot to enhance the effects you feel, from targeting more parts of your body to increasing the effects of certain chemical compounds. 

What “conflict” there is between THC and CBD is ultimately beneficial for your health. For instance, THC is known to make some users anxious or even nauseas, an effect that can be muted by the inclusion of CBD. 

The exact reasons for CBD being such a big THC-moderator is not exactly known, but some studies have suggested that CBD prevents THC from overstimulating certain parts of the brain that may send one down an anxiety rabbit hole.
