Terpene Uses

Terpenes are the irreplaceable source of the myriad fragrances and flavors we experience daily.

The Building Blocks of Sensory Profiles

Whether we find them in essential oils or in cannabis, terpenes play an enormous role not only in our perception of aroma and flavor, but also provide therapeutic and medicinal benefits depending on their formulation, concentrations and delivery method.

With the growing availability of different cannabis-based oils, the unique characteristics of specific terpene formulations may enhance the effectiveness of CBD oil and other cannabis-derived products that often lose terpenes during the manufacturing process. Terpene use can also extend to treating specific medical indications.

Incorporating Terpenes’ Exceptional Properties

With many terpenes lost during the cannabis oil extraction, the reintroduction of terpenes to the oil can help recreate the effects of the full flower. Terpene rich oils can be then vaped, added to tincture or incorporated in any oil-based product. Consuming terpenes through lungs via vaped products is a very efficient delivery system because it results in higher bioavailability of the terpenes. Moreover, tinctures can be absorbed sublingually, adding to their quick onset.

Apart from oil products, terpenes can be mixed with a range of other products to incorporate their advantageous benefits, including cannabis beverages, edibles and capsules. In addition, terpenes have noteworthy capabilities when applied to aromatherapy treatments and can be a potent component of topical applications as well. It has been scientifically confirmed that some terpenes are capable of aiding trans-dermal absorption depending on their concentration within topicals. However, this short list of applications is far from exhaustive.

Finding Common Ground

From the inviting smell of incense to the taste of your favorite beer, terpenes’ effects play a prominent role not only in our sensory experiences but also increase the efficacy of other natural compounds when taken in the context of cannabis. Without terpenes, some of the most powerful and potent properties of the cannabis plant are lost during the manufacturing process of cannabis extracts.

Terpenes are more than simple sensory excitement and enhancement. With the proper formulation and inclusion, terpenes’ benefits may extend the medicinal and therapeutic properties of cannabis oils and extracts, helping focus and tailor specific properties to deliver the best possible interactions.
