Terpenes are non psychoactive, pungent compounds that are found in every plant species. Some terpenes have beneficial effects on certain body systems and functions and are able to communicate directly with your CB2 receptors, just like CBD. Certain terpenes are naturally synergistic with canabinoids, including CBD, and allow the cannabinoids to pass through the blood brain barrier more easily. This can increase the effectiveness of the cannabinoids, ultimately leading to the “entourage effect”. The plant terpenes can also support natural functions, such as, mood and relaxation, sleep, immune strength, inflammation control and associated pain.
In addition to all of the plant terpenes that are naturally preserved and contained in our organically grown full spectrum hemp CBD extract, all of our CBD products are engineered with an additional specific blend of the following four plant terpenes, in varying amounts. They help support the benefits associated with each CBD infused product. We create our unique and true full spectrum CBD experience with the extensive benefits of these terpenes and their entourage effect enhancement.
Linalool is a plant terpene found in over 200 plant species, including lavender. It has been used for centuries to induce proper sleep function, to reduce stress and anxiety, and to fight inflammation in the body. While occasional inflammation characterized by swelling, redness, pain and a sensation of warmth, is one of the many human body’s self-defense systems and plays a beneficial role in our body, It can also lead to chronic inflammatory issues if left untreated.
Studies show that linalool may have anti-inflammatory properties that are potentially useful for slowing down an over reactive response to an injury or illness. Studies have indicated that linalool may promote muscle relaxation and reduction of pain due to its ability to reduce the signaling strength of acetylcholine, a brain chemical required for muscle movement and contraction. Linalool has also been shown to produce effects similar to an anesthetic by elevating adenosine levels in the brain and reducing the excitability of the cells in the spinal cord that send pain signals to the brain.
Beta caryophyllene (BCP) is found in multiple plant species, including cinnamon, basil, cloves, hemp, lavender, oregano, rosemary, and cannabis. B-caryophyllene is one of the most studied plant terpenes. In fact, it’s been part of over 500 scientific studies gathering data on its ability to fight pain, minimize inflammation, and reduce stress. Unlike most other terpenes, it’s able to activate and communicate with CB2 receptors throughout the body. This makes BCP very similar to the cannabinoid CBD. Many studies have shown that because BCP is a full CB2 agonist, it has the ability to reduce inflammation, which can help to reduce associated pain.
Myrcene is mono terpene found in many plants including, hops, lemongrass, mango, verbena, cardamom, basil, cannabis, and hemp. It is the most commonly found terpene in hemp. Scientists have been studying myrcene to discover more about its powerful anti-inflammatory qualities as well as its ability to improve sleep function, mood, immune system function, and chronic pain. The plants and herbs that contain myrcene have been used for hundreds of years by indigenous people to treat common problems, such as, sleep disorders, mood disorders, inflammation, chronic pain or pain related to an injury.
Limonene is the second most commonly found terpene in nature, it is produced by citrus plants, pine, juniper, rosemary, celery, fennel, caraway, mint and also hemp and cannabis among other species of plants. Limonene is normally associated with a pleasant fruity citrus smell and is found in a wide variety of everyday products including cosmetics, beverages, and cleaning supplies due to its natural solvent properties. Studies have shown that the inhalation of the aroma increases dopamine and serotonin levels in regions of the brain that are associated with depression, stress, and OCD. According to recent scientific studies, limonene can help reduce stress and normalize stress hormone levels. In 2013, limonene was found to increase the availability of serotonin, and to help decrease anxiety related symptoms. It also affects the adenosine receptors, which increases the release of dopamine in your system. This research has suggested it may be helpful in treating symptoms related to stress and anxiety. As part of the entourage effect, limonene can interact with linalool, b-carophyllene, myrcene, as well as CBD and the many other cannabinoids and terpenes found in hemp.
