Our CBD shatter comes in four flavors with added terpenes.
“Terpenes (pronounced tur-peens), or terpenoids, are aromatic metabolites found in the oils of all plants.
More and more research is indicating that terpenoids play a significant role in the medicinal effects of cannabinoids.
Several studies (some from as early as the 1980s) have shown that terpenes work together to help cannabinoids (like THC and CBD) pass through the bloodstream easier and “lower” the blood-to-brain barrier.
Basically, you feel more or less of the effects of a strain based on the terpenes found in it.
Not only that, but because terpenes have their own medicinal effects (apart from providing the tastes and smells of cannabis), they work together to amp up or chill out the dominant effects of the other cannabinoids. This is called the “entourage effect” because of the way the different components can work together, play off each other, and enhance or downplay the end effects.
If cannabinoids and terpenes are all together and working towards the same goal, you’ll notice stronger effects. If they’re counterbalancing each other (as they would in a group), the effect on the whole is muted.”
