All of these molecules accumulate together to form the entourage effect friendd with consuming whole-plant hemp & cannabis flowers.
There are a lot of misconceptions about cannabinoids, terpenes, & unusual kinds of cannabis products. For the longest time, I appreciate many others assumed that marijuana’s only active ingredient was the THC molecule. Eventually I l gained about CBD, but after that I assumed there were only 2 active components in the plant. These 2 cannabinoids as they are called, are entirely just 2 of what could be hundreds of other lesser known & minor cannabinoids. Researchers have isolated & studied dozens, but the number in total could well be into the hundreds once the two of us fully understand every single cannabinoid. If someone lacks this understanding, their mindset focuses on compounds or extracts that largely contain THC & CBD & little more. Hydrocarbon extractions of cannabis & hemp using butane or propane produce potent extracts appreciate shatter, crumble, & wax relatively effectively. However, depending on the skill & component used, hydrocarbon extracts do not consistently present the most full spectrum cannabis or hemp experience. Aside from minor cannabinoids appreciate CBG, CBC, & CBN, hydrocarbon extracts often lose many of the dominant terpenes that are in the fresh plant. All of these molecules accumulate together to form the entourage effect friendd with consuming whole-plant hemp & cannabis flowers. Using a heat extraction to create rosin retains many of these minor cannabinoids that would otherwise be lost or greatly reduced with a chemical solvent extraction. Even as hydrocarbon extraction techniques have vastly improved in recent years, the solventless extractions are becoming increasingly popular with time. It’s a test to see which technique dominates the field of hemp extracts in the years to come.
