Actually, before we discuss what terpenes are, let’s discuss what Cannabinoids are.
Wait, hold on, before we talk about Cannabinoids, let me tell you about the Entourage Effect.
The Entourage Effect is a phenominon that occurs in any substance that allows compounds to work together synergistically. But, that’s super sciency, I hate it, let me turn it into real words.
When you have multiple things that make a bigger picture when connected, you have the Entourage Effect. Alone, these parts are weak, but meshed together they become really strong.
This effect is present in all of Hemp, the more COMPOUNDS it has, the stronger it becomes when used by you. With that knowledge, the more Terpenes, Cannabinoids, Vitamins, and Minerals that are in your Hemp Extract, the better off you’re going to be.
So Cannabinoids are the main thing talked about when it comes to Hemp. CBD is a Cannabinoid, so is CBG, so is THC, these compounds can have a lot of great effects when used by the human body. Did you know, there are more Cannabinoids than that? There is a certain subset of Cannabinoids called Terpenes which deal with smell and taste.
Terpenes are of vital importance because they do one more exceedingly important thing.
THEY PROMOTE BIOAVAILABILITY!
Yes you heard that right. You know all of that Nano-Emulsified, Water Soluble, Easy-to-get-in-your-bloodstream CBD?
It’s all GARBAGE.
Turns out that natural HEMP does a better job than science when it comes to getting CBD into your bloodstream. You need TERPENES to do it.
