Meet the Terpenes: How Do Terpenes Enhance Your Cannabis Experience?

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are the fragrant essential oils that make your favorite cannabis strains smell and taste so good. These organic compounds are non-psychoactive. And they are, by far, the most varied and ancient class of phytochemicals produced by plant species.

Today, there are more than 40,000 distinct terpenes. But it seems like every day, a new one is identified.

And that’s great news for us.

For humans, terpenes are critical sources of nutrients for health and wellness. These essential, ESSENTIAL oils support the brain, body, and mind in powerful and diverse ways. Many folks even say these hydrogen- and carbon-containing compounds are vital to living your best life today and boosting longevity.

At Green Revolution, we’ve harnessed the powers of carefully formulated blends of terpenes that help to deliver consistent experiences product to product and batch to batch.

Terpenes Love Cannabinoids Standardization Protocols

Cannabis is a unique plant that has evolved to produce hundreds of different cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that work in concert to yield different aromas and effects of your favorite strains.  When formulated properly, you can take your cannabis experience to the next level.

Green Revolution took the guesswork out of cannabis with our Terpenes Love Cannabinoids Standardized Protocols. The optimal combination of high terpenes and high cannabinoids gives you the power to control your experience.

What are the benefits of terpenes?

Here’s a quick overview of some of the most popular terpenes in cannabis and their impact on our short-term and long-term well-being:

Limonene is a sweet, citrusy terpene reminiscent of summertime bliss. Its aroma matches its mood-boosting therapeutic properties perfectly. Limonene works wonders to combat anxiety, stress, depression, and nausea. And it’s great for any time of day.

Linalool has a unique floral and sugar aroma with a sprinkle of tropical spiciness. Linalool promotes prosocial interactions, relaxation, and sedation. It also decreases anxiety levels, pain responses, and aggressive behavior. Plus, linalool performs well as an antimicrobial.

Myrcene or β-myrcene has an earthy and somewhat citrus-like aroma. Myrcene is hailed for its effectiveness in fighting inflammation, pain, muscle tension, insomnia, bacteria, fungi, and DNA damage.

Alpha-Pinene (α-Pineneα) is a woody and pine-flavored terpene that bolsters memory retention, energy, alertness, airflow, and protein digestion. It also counteracts inflammation system-wide, wrinkles, insects, infections, as well as coughing and breathing problems.

Caryophyllene smells and tastes like a gourmet mixture of spices and peppers. Caryophyllene is a strong pain reliever, anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, and anti-anxiety. The terpene also helps reduce digestion problems and gastrointestinal issues.

What is the entourage effect?

Combining terpenes with cannabinoids and the spectrum of other beneficial nutrients in whole-plant, full-spectrum cannabis has synergistic impacts on the mind and body.

The interplay between cannabis ingredients and the unique synergy that’s produced is coined the “entourage effect.”

The exact interactions that occur depend on your concoction of terpene essential oils and cannabinoids, of course.

But, in essence, the entourage effect improves the performance of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and unleashes profound medicinal properties.

Here are just a few benefits of the entourage effect:

  • Facilitates the passage of cannabinoids through the blood-brain barrier and throughout the bloodstream.
  • Enhances the permeability and effectiveness of cannabinoids at the cellular level.
  • Maximizes relief from pain, inflammation, depression, anxiety, epilepsy, cancer, and infections.
  • Mitigates the THC-induced “stoned” feeling, which may be a pro or con depending on your cannabis and wellness goals.
