CBD Terpenes: The Ultimate Guide
Terpenes are natural compounds responsible for the smells, flavors, and colors found in every plant on Earth, and cannabis is no exception.
Humans have used terpenes, unknowingly, for centuries. All natural food flavorings are some type of terpene, and many health and beauty products contain terpenes for their aroma and effects.
In addition to scenting the world we live in, terpenes are the primary active ingredients in plant essential oils, providing the various subtle effects that each essential oil is known for.
Terpene oils infused with CBD are commonly known as CBD terpene oils.
Terpenes are more than just smell-good compounds. The combination of terpenes with other cannabinoids, such as CBD, may enhance the effects of the cannabinoids.
Terpenes have a unique impact on your endocannabinoid system with each type delivering a different sensory experience. For example, some terpenes may promote a sense of relaxation, while others may promote a sense of alertness.
If you’re looking for a way to enhance your CBD regimen in a non-intoxicating way, then you’re looking for terpenes!
The Entourage Effect
Studies have shown that terpenes extracted from cannabis offer a wide range of benefits when used in combination with CBD. In fact, when terpenes work together with CBD, they create a stronger effect than CBD alone.
All of Green Roads terpene products combine the benefits of natural terpenes and broad spectrum CBD oil to deliver a richer experience by producing this synergistic phenomenon known as the Entourage Effect.
To understand this concept, think of human interactions in the business world. Some have certain gifts and abilities that allow them to excel in something.
Sometimes, these people meet other individuals who have a different set of gifts. When partnerships or alliances are formed between these two groups people, and abilities are joined, achievements can be made that were otherwise impossible.
Benefits of Terpenes for General Wellness
Terpenes are also antioxidants, meaning they may control the damage done by highly-reactive byproducts of our metabolism that can have a detrimental effect on our well-being.
Free radicals and other reactive compounds produced by cellular activities can destroy delicate structures like DNA. Antioxidants like terpenes attract free radicals and neutralize them before they’re able to do any damage.
What Make Green Roads CBD So Pure?
As CBD is isolated from the plant material and exits the high-pressure environment inside the extraction machine, all of the CO2 evaporates, because it’s no longer at a supercritical pressure.
This leaves behind a solvent-free extract containing only the purest select phytocannabinoids and terpenes.
