The Straight Hemp secret sauce
While terpenes are considered the flavor and scent compounds of plants, they deliver so much more as they also produce amazing benefits of their own.
Terpenes interact with many of the same body parts as cannabinoids, but in different ways. While they may show little or no effect on their own, they synergize and amplify the effects of other terpenes and cannabinoids.
This phenomenon is called the "entourage effect," and is the result of hundreds of natural plant compounds interacting together for greater effect than if used alone, one by one. Almost everything we do at Straight Hemp is intended to maximize this effect.
In plant-based medicine, the whole is ALWAYS greater than the sum of its parts.
