In 1998, cannabis science pioneer Dr. Raphael Mechoulam found that the combined effects of combined cannabinoids (like THC and CBD, for example) could be more potent than a single, isolated compound.

The entourage effect also includes the terpenoids and the flavonoids, which are responsible for the spectrum of cannabis’ flavors and aromas.

Mixing strains can not only get you higher, but it can also heighten cannabis’ therapeutic abilities.

If you want to experiment with this, the best strains to get the job done are here.
