Key Ingredients – Terpenes & Extracts
The minuscule glands of the hemp plant that excrete cannabinoids also produce terpenes, which are what gives both hemp and marijuana their distinct aromas. Terpenes are not exclusive to the cannabis sativa plant, and can be found throughout nature. For example, the terpenes, alpha-pinene and beta-pinene, both smell of pine, and can be found in pine needles, rosemary, and basil. The terpene limonene offers a citrus scent, and can be found in lemon rinds, juniper, and peppermint. In addition to providing these pungent aromas, terpenes are also therapeutic in nature – alpha-pinene has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties, and limonene is an antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, and is anxiolytic.
We add specific terpenes and plant extracts to our various product lines because CBD and terpenes work synergistically together, creating an “entourage effect”. Independently, both terpenes and CBD work well, but together, they are far more potent and effective. Listed below are a few of plant extracts, and terpenes included in our proprietary blends, as well as their associated therapeutic benefits.
All ingredients are added with precision and intention.
