Cannabinoid & TERPENE PROFILES

THE PROPORTION OF CANNABINOIDS AND TERPENES CREATE THE DIFFERENT THERAPEUTIC OUTCOMES OF A SPECIFIC STRAIN. EACH CONCENTRATE WE PRODUCE HAS CLEARLY DISPLAYED TEST RESULTS LISTING FULL CANNABINOID AND TERPENE PROFILES.  

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? LEARN MORE BELOW.


TERPENES (/tur-peenS/)

ARE A DISTINCT CLASS OF ORGANIC HYFROCARBONS, CREATED BY AN ARRAY OF PLANT LIFE. THEY OFTEN PROTECT THE PLANTS THAT PRODUCE THEM BY DISCOURAGE HERBIVORES FROM WITH ITS STRONG ODER.

FOUND IN THE SAME GLANDS THAT PRODUCE CANNABINOIDS LIKE THC AND CBD, TERPENES ARE THE PUNGENT OILS THAT PROVIDE VARIETIES OF CANNABIS WITH DISTINCTIVE FLAVORS SUCH AS CITRUS, BERRY, MINT, AND PINE.

SCIENTISTS HAVE RECENTLY DISCOVERED THAT TERPENES PLAY A MUCH LARGER ROLE IN THE MEDICINAL BENEFITS OF CANNABIS THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT.  NOT ONLY DOES THE TERPENE PROFILE OF A STRAIN DICTATE ITS UNIQUE FLAVOR AND AROMA, TERPENES ALSO PLAY A KEY ROLE IN DETERMINING THE EFFECT CANNABIS HAS ON OUR BODIES. IT IS NOT ONLY ABOUT THE TOTAL LEVEL OF TERPENES PRESENT IN A GIVEN STRAIN, MORE IMPORTANT IS THEIR SPECIFIC PROPORTION TO ONE ANOTHER. 

TERPENES WORKING IN TANDEM WITH THE MANY OTHER CANNABINOIDS IN THE PLANT ARE WHAT UNLOCK THE MEDICINAL BENEFITS OF CANNABIS.


CannabinoidS (/kan-uh-buh-noidS/)

ARE ONE OF A GROUP OF DIVERSE CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS THAT WORKS ON RECEPTORS IN CELLS THAT CHANGE NEUROTRANSMITTER RELEASE IN THE BRAIN. THERE ARE THREE MAIN TYPES: ENDOCANNABINOIDS, PHYTOCANNABINOIDS (MOST IMPORTANT TO US!), AND SYNTHETIC CANNABINOIDS.

PHYTOCANNABINOIDS (AKA CANNABIS CANNABINOIDS) ARE FOUND IN MANY PLANTS, INCLUDING MARIJUANA. THERE ARE OVER 100 DIFFERENT CANNABINOIDS, AND ALL EXHIBIT VARIED EFFECTS. THE MOST PROMINENT IS TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL [THC], THE KEY PSYCHOACTIVE COMPOUND IN CANNABIS. CANNABIDIOL [CBD] IS THE 2ND MOST COMPONENT FOUND IN THE PLANT.

SCIENTISTS HAVE FOUND THAT THE CANNABINOID COMPOUND SECRETS FROM THE CANNABIS FLOWERS – AND IS WHAT PROVIDES RELIEF TO AN ARRAY OF SYMPTOMS INCLUDING ANXIETY, INFLAMMATION, AND PAIN. BY IMITATING THE ENDOCANNABINOID COMPOUND THAT OUR BODIES ALREADY NATURALLY PRODUCES, CANNABINOIDS ACTIVATE TO MAINTAIN INTERNAL HEALTH & STABILITY.

AS MENTIONED, CANNABINOIDS WORK RIGHT ALONG SIDE TERPENES IN THE CANNABIS PLANT TO UNLOCK THE MEDICINAL BENEFITS OF MARIJUANA.
