The popularity of CBD products has been steadily increasing due to their positive effects on an individual’s physical health and mental well-being.
This trend has sparked an increasing level of interest in various other compounds found in the hemp plant such as terpenes. Various terpene strains
have been identified to produce specific desired effects. Terpenes can be added to various products including e-liquids, foods and drinks as needed.
What Are Terpenes?
Terpenes have been associated with essential oils and are believed to be the reason for the health and wellness they bring. Terpenes are a group of
organic compounds produced by a wide variety of plants that we smell or eat every day. They are aromatic oils that flavor cannabis plant varieties
with distinctive notes like citrus, berry, mint, and pine. These compounds are responsible for the aroma and taste found in the many plants that produce them.
Terpenes that occur in plants are often found in very trace amounts.
The major role terpenes play is differentiating the effects of various cannabis and hemp strains. For example, some terpenes promote relaxation
and stress-relief, while others promote focus and energy. Hence the popularity of terpenes that boost energy or relaxation. All the terpenes we use
are GRAS (Generally recognized as safe) by the FDA and regularly used in aromatherapy and food.
The Entourage Effect
The entourage effect in plants is the concept of various compounds or ingredients working together resulting in a much broader, more effective overall
experience. When various compounds are working in concert, the desired effects are reportedly increased. Terpenes allow consumers to introduce
individual strains in order to create a specific feeling or mood.
