How do we use terpenes for its beneficial effects?



Terpenes are a group of compounds that are found in many plants, including hemp and cannabis. They are responsible for the distinct aromas of different strains of cannabis and are believed to have a range of potential health benefits when consumed.


Terpenes are found in the essential oils of plants and are known for their strong, fragrant aromas. They are often used in the production of perfumes, soaps, and other personal care products. In addition to their role in the aroma of plants, terpenes are also thought to play a role in the therapeutic effects of cannabis.

When used in combination with CBD (cannabidiol), terpenes may enhance the therapeutic effects of CBD by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system. This system is a network of receptors found throughout the body that helps to regulate various functions, including sleep, appetite, mood, and immune system function.


There are over 100 different terpenes that have been identified in cannabis, and each one has its own unique set of properties and potential health benefits. Some research suggests that certain terpenes may have anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, and anxiety-reducing effects when consumed. For example, the terpene beta-caryophyllene is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and may help to reduce anxiety and stress. The terpene limonene, which is found in citrus fruits, is believed to have antidepressant and anxiety-reducing effects.


Some research suggests that terpenes may be able to enhance the therapeutic effects of CBD (cannabidiol) when consumed in combination. For example, a study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology found that the combination of CBD and the terpene myrcene may have a synergistic effect, potentially enhancing the anxiety-reducing effects of CBD.

It is important to note that research on the health benefits of terpenes is still in the early stages and more research is needed to fully understand how they may be used for therapeutic purposes.

If you are interested in using terpenes in combination with CBD for potential health benefits, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement regimen. They can help you understand the potential risks and benefits and determine if this is a safe and appropriate option for you.
