The Benefits of Terpenes in Cannabis-Infused Edibles

Have you ever eaten an edible not knowing exactly what will happen? If you are like most beginners, you ask a budtender what they recommend and go from there. They will tell you to start slow, eat a bit and wait an hour or two before eating more. However, the budtender might not know exactly what the effects of the edible will be. This is because edibles can be affected by tolerances, body chemistry, and the processing techniques used to make them.

We all have this system of receptors in our bodies ready to interpret the cannabis plant’s chemical compounds. The receptors are found in the brain, organs, connective tissue, immune cells, and even skin cells. When cannabis is used topically, the cannabinoids penetrate deep into that localized area, but they don’t have the psychotropic effects associated with smoking cannabis. People use cannabis-infused creams, oils, and balms for the localized relief of swelling, inflammation, tension, aches, and pains. Cannabinoids work better together, as do terpenes. Some terpenes like limonene, even aid in the absorption of other terpenes. Recent studies have shown that terpenes have their own pharmacology and help increase circulation and absorption of cannabinoids. The unique […]
