While isolated CBD has little long term or consistent performance and comprises the majority of the available CBD market, the 'Entourage Effect' or use of originally bonded cannabinoids including low THC formats can provide both real and consistent performance, as well as greater absorption and a literal performance outweighing the sum of their parts, thus the name, 'Entourage': the sum of the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Originally bonded CBD, terpenes, CBG, THC, etc. can provide greater and more consistent symptom relief than they each could added together. This is also quantum medicine- in that molecules are not like bricks, but waves of energy mixed together.
From: ProjectCBD.org "CBD & ITS ENTOURAGE":
"Cannabis has been part of the pharmacopeia, or branch of medical science that studies drugs and medicinal preparations, of many cultures throughout history.
Like many other plants, cannabis plants secrete a sticky tar-like residue called resin. On cannabis plants, the resin is contained within the heads of tiny, mushroom-shaped trichomes, found mainly on the plant’s flower buds and to a lesser extent on the leaves. In the resin is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — the compound that causes the high that cannabis is famous for — and cannabidiol (CBD), along with hundreds of other cannabinoids and terpenes. Traditionally, these flowers, which we commonly call marijuana, are hand-harvested, dried, trimmed, and cured. The flowers are then consumed for their medicinal and/or intoxicating effects.
Israeli scientist Raphael Mechoulam, one of the world’s leading authorities on CBD, has described the cannabis plant as a “treasure trove” of medicinal value with the potential to treat a wide variety of different ailments. CBD and THC can be considered the crown jewels of this treasure trove, but they are just two of more than a hundred related plant compounds called phytocannabinoids, lipid (fat)-based molecules that are unique to the cannabis plant and give it its therapeutic potential. The plant is also rich in compounds called terpenes and flavonoids, which work together with CBD and THC to create an “entourage effect” that is greater than the effect of any one of the molecules alone."
