As hemp becomes more mainstream, words like “full-spectrum” and “terpenes” may be on your radar. You may have even heard them here, because Care By Design Hemp is always full-spectrum and loaded with specialized terpenes. But how much do these things really matter when shopping for CBD?
Actually, they matter a lot! While CBD alone can be beneficial, its effects can have super-powered synergy when it is accompanied by its other cannabinoid friends and hemp’s aroma and flavor savers–terpenes.
What Are Terpenes?
Terpenes don’t just give plants their odors and taste. They are present in nearly every plant on earth and offer health benefits to all living things. Terpenes are prominent in hemp and work synergistically with its other components.
Some CBD companies don’t use the whole hemp plant. By isolating only CBD, they are literally throwing away all the other advantages that other cannabinoids and terpenes can offer.
What a waste! At Care By Design Hemp, we always use full-spectrum CBD in order to maintain its full benefits for you.
Not only that, but each of our formulations has a specially developed and calibrated recipe of terpenes in order to give you exactly the results you’re looking for.
And now introducing a few of our featured terpene stars:
Myrcene is a prominent player in all of our formulations. Myrcene is the most dominant terpene in hemp plants. It gives them their fragrant, earthy aroma. Myrcene is also found in mangoes, bay leaves, and lemongrass. Myrcene can boost the effects of CBD and offers anti-inflammatory effects.
Our “Uplift” formulation has a big boost of limonene. As its name suggests, limonene has a fresh, citrusy, cheerful scent. Limonene is one of nature’s most common terpenes and in addition to hemp, it can be found in foods like lemons, dill, and celery seeds. Limonene is known to be an antioxidant.
Beta-Caryophyllene, or BCP, has a spicy scent and is among the terpenes found in black pepper, copaiba, cloves, and hops. Beta-Caryophyllene is unique because it is the only terpene that can bind with receptors in your body’s own endocannabinoid system, offering some of the same benefits that other cannabinoids do. That’s why it is featured in our “Relief” formulation.
Linalool is found in over 200 different plants, including lavender which contains it in abundance. Linalool is what gives lavender its pleasing aroma, antimicrobial properties, and relaxing effects. This makes linalool a perfect addition to our “Calm” formula.
Pinene is a team player in our “Rest” recipe. Pinene smells just like it sounds – like a forest of evergreens. Besides pine trees, pinene is also found in herbs like basil and rosemary. Pinene’s potent powers can help open up your airways, as well as function as an antiseptic.
Due to its earthy, floral aroma, ocimene is often used to sweeten product fragrances. It is naturally found in orchids as well as black currants and flowering herbs. Ocimene is known to have energizing effects. Ocimene helps harmonize our “Balance” blend.
