Common Effects From Different Cannabis Terpenes
Hey you! Long time no terp…I mean talk. Must be the limonene chilling me out…
It’s time we talk about what you can potentially expect from different terpenes. We already discussed the common cannabis terpenes, so it’s time to dive a little deeper. The reason we are talking about terpenes is that we want to be able to refine our high and have a solid set of expectations from the product we have. There is nothing worse than smoking a strain you thought was going to help with anxiety and next thing you know your mind is racing on the 70th lap of the Daytona 500. No fun, right? Terpenes are known for the distinct aroma that they bring to certain plants, as well as the different physical and mental effects they can potentially have upon smoking.
As your Friendly OG, I thought it’d be a good idea for us to chat about the potential effects of the different terpenes we feature so you can get the right strain from one of our budtenders next time you come in. If you read my post about the common cannabis terpenes, you’ll know that the five terpenes we will be discussing today are caryophyllene, limonene, myrcene, pinene and humule. There are WAY more terpenes but I’m here to give you a quick run down, so stop distracting me! Or is that the limonene again? Anyway…
Potential Effects From Different Terpenes
- Caryophyllene – This dual-wielding terpene and cannabinoid is known for its potential to reduce pain and ulcers by kick-starting your endocannabinoid system. If you are looking for Caryophyllene, check out our Silencer strain.
- Limonene – Citrus on the nose, calm in the mind. Limonene is commonly known for its potential treatment of anxiety and depression and can often offer relief to cancer patients who are using cannabis medicinally. Our Wifi OG strain is a great place to find this terp.
- Myrcene – This terpene is believed to act as a natural antioxidant, as well as potentially help with insomnia, pain and inflammation. You can find this terpene in our Sensi Star strain.
- Pinene – If you suffer from chronic pain and inflammation, pinene could be a beneficial terpene for you. OG Kush tends to contain pinene, and we have a few strains in which we cross OG Kush!
- Humulene – Found in both hops and cannabis, this terpene is also well known for its possible anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits – you can find humulene in a lot of our strains, including our popular Wedding Cake strain.
