Cannabis Terpenes UK

The importance of Terpenes in Cannabis can never be overlooked. You may be forgiven for thinking that terpenes only make the cannabis plant taste the way they do, but they actually have a physical effect on our body. 

They not only have their own effects (& Benefits) but also change the way your body uses cannabinoids. They are a huge part of the reason why different cannabis strains have different effects on us. For instance why a Sativa is traditionally uplifting and an indica locks you to the sofa. 

Terpenes can be found in a range of things from CBD oil & CBD paste but they are much more important when they are found in CBD Vape products and concentrates. They not only flavour the oils naturally but they are also a huge part of what makes the Entourage Effect so powerful.

You may have found this post while looking for terpenes for your vape oils or distillate mixture. So let’s dig into what Terpenes are and where you can buy Cannabis Terpenes in the UK!

There are more than 100 different Terpenes but the most common of these are Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Limonene, Humulene, Ocimene, Caryophyllene and Terpinolene. Each have their own well being benefits and research is going into what their benefits actually are.

How To Use Terpenes

Terpenes are fairly potent and are actually quite difficult to use. They can potentially be harmful so you should be very careful when using them. 

Cannabis Terpenes come in a very small bottle which tells you that a little goes a very long way. It is important that you never ingest the Cannabis Terpenes undiluted. They should be added to a liquid, oil or CBD product. It is always best to add more later rather than adding too much in the first place.

The best way to add terpenes to your oils is to add one or two drops into a larger tub of product. Mix well and try. If you need more, then add it. 


Botanical Vs Cannabis Derived Terpenes 

The most illusive kind of Cannabis terpenes are those which are derived from Cannabis. Most of the time, the terpenes that you can buy are called ‘botanical’ or ‘cannabis inspired’. These are produced in a lab to replicate the terpene profile of the plant, but they are not the same. Cannabis derived terpenes come from the process of distilling the terpenes from the plant. 

The quality of cannabis derived terpenes makes the two kinds of terpenes hard to compare. The difference is night and day. The major issue is that they are really really hard to find and quite expensive when you do find them.
