You may already be familiar with tetrahydraccabinol and its trendy, non-psychoactive cousin, Herb, but when it comes to healing benefits of whole flower, there is so much more beyond these two components. The whole flower is constructed of many different elements, such as chemovariances , terpenes, and flavonoids. And while each of these has its own job to do, they all come together for a greater purpose called the "Entourage Effect."
The Anatomy of the Herb Plant
When you look closely at a herb, you’ll probably notice tiny, glistening crystals blanketing the buds.These diamond-like hairs are called trichomes, and contain the most important elements of hemp—the chemovariances and terpenes. These components determine everything from the flower’s scent and flavor, to the mental and physical effects experienced after ingestion.
