What are Terpenes and How Are They Beneficial?

by | Nov 27, 2020 | CBD Education

Continued research of CBD and its benefits has provided greater insight into just how effective this substance can be. One of the most notable aspects about CBD is that it contains terpenes, which are naturally-occurring compounds found in cannabis plants. Terpenes have proven to be extremely beneficial for those who consume CBD that contains one or more of them. 

So, what are terpenes? As mentioned before, these are aromatic compounds found in cannabis plants. These compounds can be found in countless different types of plants, however high concentrations of them are found in cannabis. Not only do they give off healing aromas, but they also provide many therapeutic physical and psychological benefits. There are more than 100 different types of terpenes found in cannabis plants, however there are only a handful of highly concentrated ones.

Types of Terpenes

  • Bisabolol
  • Borneol
  • Camphene
  • Caryophyllene
  • Delta 3 Carene
  • Eucalyptol
  • Geraniol
  • Humulene
  • Limonene
  • Linalool
  • Myrcene
  • Pinene
  • Phytol
  • Terpinolene
  • Trans-nerolidol
  • Valencene

These and other terpenes can be found in cannabis as well as in CBD products. They do not possess any psychoactive abilities, meaning that they can be utilized for their many benefits without creating a mind-altering, addicting high.

Benefits of Terpenes

An interesting aspect about terpenes is that they all produce their own healing effects. Whether mental or physical, this property can significantly improve a person’s wellbeing when consumed in products deemed medical or non-psychoactive. Some of the most prominent benefits of certain properties include the following:

  • Offers physical pain relief and an all-natural option for continued pain management
  • Improves symptoms related to insomnia
  • Reduces heartburn and acid reflux
  • Helps treat symptoms of anxiety disorders and depression
  • Works as an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory 
  • Helps improve breathing in individuals with conditions such as asthma
  • Improves memory
  • Promotes alertness 
  • Can aid in treating cancerous tumors
  • Serves as a decongestant
  • Has antioxidant qualities

These benefits are associated with the types of terpenes listed above. Certain terpenes produce specific effects, which is why being educated about them can be critical in helping you take good care of yourself. 

Terpenes and CBD

While these occur naturally in cannabis plants, they need to be manufactured into CBD products. This allows consumers the opportunity to utilize these properties that will be most helpful for their needs. For example, someone who is struggling to sleep at night may benefit from a CBD product containing linalool or myrcene, while someone who needs to sharpen their alertness can benefit from a CBD product containing pinene. Depending on your own specific needs, you can utilize the terpenes in CBD to your benefit.
