Terpenes are substances produced by most fragrant plants, including hemp and cannabis plants. They are responsible for the aroma (and sometimes benefits) of these plants. Every plant has a different terpene blend that gives them their unique aroma. Fun fact: even some insects produce terpenoids! Incredible, right?
CBD terpenes are terpene blends extracted from hemp or cannabis plants that also contain CBD. These are usually presented in very concentrated amounts, (since a little goes a long way) and can be used in almost any situation, from vaping to cooking to adding them to your favorite products!Learn More
Benefits of CBD Terpenes
CBD terpenes can be very beneficial in that when CBD and terpenes are used together, there is a theorised ‘synergy’ between them, meaning that they are much more potent and beneficial when used together instead of separately. Every unique terpene that we know of has a set of benefits, and these can vary from antibacterial properties, anti-inflammatory effects, aromatherapeutic potential, anti-fungal properties, and many more. You can use different terpene blends for different things! Another great benefit of terpenes is that they add a complex aroma or flavour to anything they’re added to. Want a THC-free vape that tastes like a popular cannabis strain? Use the plant’s terpene blend! Want a naturally flavoured food or drink? Use terpenes! Looking for a great aromatherapy candle? Terpenes are your new best friend! Terpenes are very concentrated, so a little is all you need; but when used right, they can do wonders in your life. These are only some of the reasons CBD brands like to add terpenes to their CBD products, and we’re all here for it!
