It seems like everyone is talking about terpenes these days.
We happen to think it’s for a pretty good reason.
Have you ever walked through a pine forest, taken a breath through your nose and felt a little sharper? Have you ever sniffed fresh flowers and smiled inside? These are terpenes. Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants, particularly conifers, and by some insects. They stink so good! We like the smell of most of these strong odors. Some think the potent odors are to ward off herbivores by attracting predators.
In cannabis, like the organic hemp that Stream is derived from, the terpenes are found in the flower or bud and are thought to increase the healing properties of the plant. Over 100 different terpenes have been identified in the cannabis plant. Some terpenes are believed to have actual physiological effects on the body and/or be mood elevating.
We do not make any claims about Stream cbd but there are claims out there that the right blend of terpenes can have a myriad of different desired outcomes. Some terpenes are believed to have actual physiological effects on the body and/or be mood elevating. Some terpenes might promote relaxation and calm while others may sharpen focus. There are even terpenes that some people think helps with inflammation.
Many labs are now testing for terpenes, which we think is great because we believe in transparency. If customers have transparency in buying products they can make better informed purchases. We’ll do a deeper dive into many of the terpenes found in cannabis, as well as specific ones found in Stream products so you can understand what helps you #feelgooddogood.
