What in the terp is a Terpene!?

Posted by: Colorado Body Divine

As CBD gains more and more notoriety, Terpenes and the role they play are less   Terpenes are compounds present in the hemp plant and are also present within CBD extract.  Terpenes give the hemp plant its famous smell. These Terpene compounds are by no means unique to the hemp plant, but are present in many botanical plants including lemon and lime trees, conifers, blueberries, and lavender. Some examples of Terpenes are:

Myrcene (aroma is that of musk, cloves, herbal, and citrus. Myrcene acts as an antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and also acts as an anti-inflammatory)

Caryophyllene (aroma is that of pepper, wood, and spice. Helps with inflammation, pain relief, muscle spasms and insomnia. Caryophyllene is also an antioxidant!)

Limonene (aroma is that of citrus, lemon, orange. Assists with the relief of depression and anxiety, reduces gastric reflux, and is an anti-fungal)

Pinene (aroma is sharp, sweet, and that of pine. Helps with inflammation and also acts as a bronchodilator which can ease symptoms of asthma)

Linalool (that of floral, citrus, and spice. Helps with insomnia, stress, depression, anxiety, eases pain and reduces convulsions).

Humulene (aroma is earthy and woody.  Acts as an anti-inflammatory and an anti-bacterial and helps manage pain.  Humulene can also reduce appetite!)

Why are Terpenes Important?

Just like Cannabinoids, Terpenes offer many healing and therapeutic properties such as inflammation reduction (Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Humulene, Linalool, & Pinene), pain relief {Caryophyllene, Humulene), muscle spasm reduction (Caryophyllene), anti-depression and anti-anxiety (Limonene & linalool). and memory retention and alertness (Pinene). And the list goes on and on.  Similar to when Vitamin D is added to a calcium regimen, when a full Terpene profile is present within your CBD extract, your CBD extract’s effectiveness is boosted.  What that means to the consumer is a more powerful and more effective CBD extract.

Terpene Profiles and Colorado Body Divine

Terpenes are beautiful compounds.  They smell incredible, provide countless healing effects, and are extremely volatile when exposed to heat. Heat destroys Terpene Profiles quickly and easily. Because mainstream CBD extraction methods include high levels of heat over prolonged periods of time, Terpene Profiles are absent from most CBD extract on the market today.

Because Colorado Body Divine sources CBD that is extracted without harsh chemicals or prolonged exposure to heat, our extract retains its complete Terpene Profile! Not only do our clients benefit from CBD extracted from 100% USDA certified, organic hemp, but they also get an extract packed with Cannabinoids AND Terpenes. Our clients enjoy the FULL entourage effect of all 108 Cannabinoids and full Terpene Profiles working together to bring maximum effectiveness.
