Unlocking the Power of Terpenes: Natural Ways to Improve the Effects of Cannabis

We will talk about terpenes, which are the unsung stars of the cannabis plant. Even though weed gets all the attention, terpenes are essential to how it makes you feel and what you experience when you use it. Not only do these aromatic compounds give different strains of cannabis their unique smells and tastes, but they also have their healing qualities. The most exciting thing about them is how they work together with cannabis, where they can change or boost the results. Come with us as we explore the world of terpenes and learn how they significantly affect the weed experience.

Describe Terpenes

Terpenes are chemicals that make your olfactory buds work harder and improve your sense of smell. This lets your brain figure out what your body naturally finds pleasing. Terpenes are often known to enhance different parts of sensory awareness and may change how you feel after consuming or inhaling them. 

Everything that grows, including the food you eat for your body and mind, has these potent chemicals. This includes whole foods like fruits and veggies and any natural medicines or essential oils you use. To learn more about terpenes, consider how other plants and plant products make you feel and how your taste buds may affect how you react to different plants, including cannabis.

The terpenes that come from cannabis are unique because many people are now using them to get more specific effects.

How do terpenes get you high?

Even though terpenes are psychoactive, they do not make you high. Instead, they make you feel calm and ease your pain.

Cannabis is separate from terpenes. However, they both come from the same part of the medical cannabis plant and affect your endo cannabis system in the same way.

When taken with or mixed with cannabis, terpenes can make their effects stronger. This is known as the company effect.

No one knows for sure how terpenes make you feel high, but the entourage effect says that the product from a cannabis plant must not be changed in any way.

Terpenes change how cannabis works with the brain, like tetrahydro cannabis. How high you get from a strain may depend on the type of chemicals it has and how many of them there are.

Terpenes used in aromatherapy can change your mood, which can change how happy you feel. Going through life is easy when you’re high and happy. Scientists are still trying to figure out why different types of cannabis, even ones that are related to sativa or indica, can have such different results.

What to look out for: 5 main types of terpenes

There are about 400 terpenes, but only a few are known to have the most important benefits. These are the five most essential molecules to look for:
