Know Your CBD: Amazing Things to Love About Terpenes

Imagine walking through a forest of pine trees, breathing deeply and feeling relaxed and serene. Now think of a ripe lemon you've just cut open, and its sudden, uplifting citrus scent fills your senses. Or conjure a cup of chai tea with gentle cinnamon and clove spices, whose soft peppery aroma soothes with every smell and sip.

To think fondly of such indelible scents and flavors is to love terpenes. These aromatic compounds are found throughout the plant world. On a basic level, terpenes exist for plants to attract pollinators while deterring animals that may eat them.

But as humans with taste buds and olfactory senses, terpenes offer some of the plant world's greatest gifts. They also are critical to the molecular makeup of cannabis and contribute to the hemp plant's healing properties.

Here's a closer look at what makes terpenes so naturally remarkable and how they help CBD work better.

Natural Terpene Benefits
More and more people are learning about the benefits of CBD (cannabidiol) and the ways it supports our bodies' all-important endocannabinoid system. Terpenes, however, are a natural part of cannabis plants and offer unique wellness benefits. Among thousands of types of terpenes, some help with fighting inflammation and pain, others relieve stress and anxiety, while others can be either uplifting and stimulating or relaxing and sedating.

CBD Synergy
Hemp plants are grown for their natural cannabinoids, including CBD, which is isolated in the process of turning plant matter into CBD oils, topicals and edibles. Unfortunately, once crude hemp oil is processed (usually into full-spectrum distillate) to remove unwanted material such as chlorophyll, the terpenes are lost.

CBD consumers will often see products labeled as "full-spectrum" or "broad-spectrum." The former contains trace amounts (no more than .3%) of THC, while the latter is entirely THC-free. Regardless of which type of product you choose, most are missing their natural terpenes unless they are reintroduced in the manufacturing process. Industry leader EVO3 Oils has formulated a unique terpene blend and adds it to its range of CBD Oils.

Cannabinoids and Terpenes
EVO3 grows, develops, and sells lab-tested CBD oils, topicals, and other products. More importantly, the brand stands apart for its custom blend of terpenes and nutrients that restore what's lost when hemp plants are processed. More than 30 terpenes appear in EVO3's proprietary blend, including pinene, myrcene, limonene, and linalool. Each helps with stress relief, relaxation, anxiety, and mood elevation, just like CBD and other cannabinoids can. Beta-Caryophyllene, meanwhile, fights pain and inflammation and is categorized as both a terpene and a cannabinoid.

Nature's Gift
Aromas of fresh fruit, flowers, herbs and trees are a big part of why we feel better when exploring nature and experiencing its bounty. Some of those naturally occurring terpenes get into our system through foods and drinks. When it comes to CBD, you may find certain benefits depending on the products you try. With EVO3, count on its proprietary terpene blend to deliver small doses of relief for your body and mind, the same way other medicinal herbs, fruits and plants have stimulated our immune system for centuries.
