CBD Terpenes are the natural compounds found in hemp plants that are responsible for the plant’s color, smell, and flavor. CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. By infusing our supportive CBD oils with terpenes, we take advantage of the ‘entourage effect,’ a synergy of multiple natural compounds that let humans process CBD in a more natural way.
What Are CBD Terpenes?
There are over 100 different terpenes in the cannabis plant, and every strain tends toward a unique terpene type and composition. Each individual terpene promotes its own set of unique effects. Some promote relaxation and stress-relief, while others focus and acuity. Linalool, one of the most common terpenes found in the hemp plant, is thought to have a calming effect on nerves. Humulene, however, acts as an excellent anti-inflammatory agent.
