What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are the molecules that make up the unique aromas, or terpene profiles, of each strain or hybrid. Terpenes are concentrated in the resins of the flowers, and on the plant tissue of the flowers. Isolated terpenes can act as natural medicines on their own. Some produce lethargy and calming affects, while some are used as anti-inflammatories. In addition, terpenes have synergistic relationships with cannabinoids to produce different medicinal effects. How someone reacts to a strain or hybrid is based on both terpene and cannabinoid profiles.

What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are macromolecules in the cannabis plant tissues and resins that we use for medicine. When isolated, some cannabinoids (like THC) will naturally increase heart rate and produce psychoactivity. Others like CBD produce no psychoactivity and have anti-inflammatory properties. There are more than 100 known cannabinoids occurring inside the plant and are referred to as phytocannabinoids. The cannabinoids produced naturally in the human body are endocannabinoids.

What medicine is best for anxiety?

For the first time smoker, tincture is the best method for building tolerance as you have more control than smoking. there are less symptoms associated with tinctures if taken on a decided regimen. As your tolerance to the tincture increases, you may be ready for heavier consumption of similar cannabinoids if you so choose. It is recommended to move from tincture, to flower, to concentrate. If medical cannabis edibles are desired instead of tincture, be sure to adopt a decided regimen, as overdosing with medical cannabis edibles is common. If you are a consistent heavy smoker, and you still experience anxiety, you are on the wrong medical cannabis.

What is MCT oil, and what are the benefits of using MCT oil for tinctures?

Compared to long chain fatty acids (LCFA) found in most oils, medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are tasteless and odorless fats found in coconut and palm oil. The body quickly absorbs and breaks down MCTs into clean energy. MCT oils are purported to increase metabolism, help with weight management, increase physical endurance, reported improvements with dementia and Alzheimer’s, and an increase in cognition. Our MCTs are sourced from coconut oil only.
