Our products contain an addition of an organically produced compound call terpenes. This compound is taken from an unfertilized female plant. Plants are able to synthesize these compounds which aid in their survival. These terpenes are used to attract pollinators and provide the plant with natural protection from pathogenic agents. Humans can also benefit from using this. When extracted, they can enhance the medical effects of CBD and the other cannabinoids in the body. Although they provide health benefits on their own, the synergy of the cannabinoids and terpenes working together cause a stronger effect rather than taking CBD alone. The inclusion and supplement of these extra terpenes is to produce the most efficient product for our customers.
There are more than 400 different compounds found in the cannabis plant. More than 100 of them are terpenes. They are the aromatic compounds found in the oil of plants. These molecules are responsible for scent and flavor. These oils are secreted in the same glands that produce cannabinoids like THC and CBD.
Cannabis has a fairly high variety of terpenes for a single plant group. This is why there are such a variety of strains of cannabis that smell so different. Some studies have shown that they work together to help cannabinoids like THC and CBD pass through the bloodstream easier and lower the blood-to-brain barrier.
