To understand how one's tolerance truly works with cannabis, one must consider the "Entourage Effect." This theory has posed the idea that many of the minor cannabinoids and terpenes present within cannabis drastically change and affect how our cannabinoid receptors interact with each product. Though the "Entourage Effect" is still a theory, and many researchers are pursuing more studies into understanding how we as human beings interact with cannabis on a biochemical level. To break it down, many factors and components of the cannabis plant determine and change the overall experience of cannabis for each individual. Active compounds and flavonoids categorized as "Terpenes" are considered one of the most significant determining factors for the variability during cannabis consumption. Many attribute these effects and flavors to possessing their own experience. For example, a product with a lower THC but higher level of terpenes will most likely be more well-rounded and enjoyable than that with high THC and low levels of terpenes. Considering these aspects is essential when determining what product best suits each person. Concepts such as high THC does not solely affect one's experience and what you should expect from each product. Though it is an excellent marker to gauge the overall density of trichomes, it does not wholly represent the authentic experiences of each product that cannabis retail companies sell.
