You also get to enjoy many health benefits by combining the cannabinoids and terpenes of the various strains all in your system. This is called the entourage effect. Simply put, it enables the hundreds of compounds within the plant to work synergistically with one another for enhanced health benefits though the more potent high is just an amazing “side effect”. Recreational users can benefit by having more control on their hit because combining strains will give you a chance to experiment with different sensations. On the other hand, medical users can also benefit by, for example, combining sativas with indicas for a more balanced effect.
