Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in fruits, flowers, and all herbs including hemp. They are a common element in many of our CBD products.
These compounds are responsible for the distinct aroma and character of the herb. You’ve almost certainly peeled an orange and enjoyed the fresh, citrusy scent the spray creates. Or perhaps you’re familiar with popping the cap off a jar of oregano and breathing in while you’re cooking spaghetti sauce. In both cases, you were experiencing terpenes. These molecules love to rush up into the air from wherever they’re stored. That also means that any fruit, herb, or flower that has them tends to lose them over time. Make sure you keep your CBD products sealed and covered when not in use, as this will prevent the terpenes from escaping.
The entourage effect refers to a synergy of terpenes and cannabinoids in the human body. It’s believed that these aromatic compounds support and enhance the work CBD does in your system.
This makes sense if you think about it. After all, CBD is never isolated and by itself in nature. It’s surrounded by over a hundred other cannabinoids and countless other hemp compounds including terpenes.
The short answer is yes!
There are terpenes in Green Roads CBD oils. If terpenes are important to you, choose our full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD products. Please note however that these flavorful compounds are so powerful that even very small amounts are enough to generate a full flavor and aroma. As such, they may not always show up on lab reports even though they are present.
Green Roads CBD oils are original blends of cannabinoids, terpenes, hemp and sunflower seed oil, and MCT oil. They’re designed to offer you better absorption and a warm, sweet taste. They’re made by our team of pharmacists with the guiding vision of our co-founder, a licensed compounding pharmacist.
Our full-spectrum CBD oils are a blend unique to Green Roads.
Try our moderate-strength (25mg CBD/ml) or our mighty-strength (50mg CBD/ml), both of which have terpenes.
Our broad-spectrum cbd oil put Green Roads on the map, and is still the best in the industry.
Our broad-spectrum cbd oil line has terpenes too, no matter which strength or flavor you buy.
Try our original broad-spectrum formula in moderate (25mg CBD/ml) or mighty strength (50mg CBD/ml). Or try a flavored broad-spectrum oil: Apple Kiwi Bliss CBD oil in moderate strength, Apple Kiwi Bliss CBD oil in mighty strength, Mint Breeze CBD oil moderate strength, or Mint Breeze CBD Oil in mighty strength.
We’re still learning new things about hemp plants every day.
Experts say that the upper leaves of hemp plants give off citrusy terpenes like limonene as a sort of natural insect repellant. Meanwhile, the lower parts of the plant tend to produce bitter, rooty-er terpenes that burrowing insects may find unpalatable. These natural compounds may be part of a hemp plant’s defense mechanisms. Not all hemp plants have the same terpene profiles. You may be familiar with the names of certain cannabis strains like Sour Deisel or Blueberry OG. These are named for the fruity scent they give off, and the flavors they remind people of respectively.
