Another very common term used in the Cannabis and Hemp world we want you to become familiar with is « Terpenes ». If you are not familiar with terpenes, they are similar to something you already know called essential oils and can be extracted separately via a variety of different methods. We choose to only use naturally derived terpenes in our products. The terpenes are what produces the final odour, taste and medical profile of each hemp and cannabis plant as well as what permits us to identify all of the different strains. Just like essential oils, all terpenes have their own set of influence on your metabolism. For example, we use B-Caryophellene terpenes in our CBD 250mg Salve stick for its anti-inflammatory effect and analgesic properties.
It’s a very fun and easy way to start learning about the infinite varieties of strains which grow near you. Take it up a notch further than looking at the CBD and THC content, start looking at the « terpene profiles » next time you buy herbs and CBD products to help you find effects you are truly after.
