January 27, 2020 Bionativa

People say that CBD oil without terpenes is like eating your favourite dish without being able to smell it. You will not feel the entire spectrum of its taste, and you will not associate the sensual impression with the memory of food. Sounds terrible, right? It’s the same with CBD.

What are terpenes?

We have already devoted one article to the definition of terpenes (you can find it here), but to answer the question of why is it worth buying CBD with terpenes, we’ll have to reiterate.

Terpenes are, in addition to cannabinoids or essential oils, an ingredient that occurs naturally in the cannabis plant. However, one should emphasise that terpenes are not only found hemp. They occur commonly in numerous plants and even some insects. Their primary task is to protect against pests, high temperatures and herbivores.

Terpenes diversify our meals and enrich our sensual impressions. The most popular of them are linalool, pinene, limonene.

Terpenes in hemp

Terpenes occur naturally in hemp and are responsible for their characteristic smell. They are closely related to the hemp’s taste and therefore can be felt in every hemp product, also in CBD oil. If you supplement yourself with CBD containing terpenes, you’re probably well aware of the smell and taste. If not, the information that CBD containing terpenes tastes earthy and has a characteristic herbal fragrance may interest you. 

You probably wonder if CBD containing terpenes is better than CBD without terpenes. Let’s check it.

Why is it worth buying CBD with terpenes?

The CBD industry is still growing, and there is no research yet that would indicate the best method of CBD supplementation. However, it is assumed that the more natural the product, the better for our body. And although the extraction method and quality of hemp have a significant impact on CBD oils, terpenes occur naturally in the plant. Therefore, CBD containing terpenes is potentially better than CBD without terpenes.

However, what is certain and what speaks in favour of supplementing terpene-filled CBD is the possibility of feeling the entire spectrum of cannabis taste. Of course, this is not good for people who generally don’t like the taste or smell of cannabis. Then it’s worth to think about CBD capsules supplementation, but in the case of oil or hemp foods, terpenes determine the sensual impression we have. So they affect our memories and additionally promote relaxation. You can associate the herbal aroma of CBD hemp tea with a lazy afternoon on the sofa, and the taste of CBD oil with a busy morning. You understand what’s that mean, right? Terpenes have a significant impact on the course of supplementation and the emotions associated with it. Thanks to this, they can even affect the effects of supplementation.
