This laboratory blend of terpenes offer a boost of energy as well as work to enhance the isolated cannabinoid- Cannabidiol. Commonly found in conifer trees, A-Pinene appears to act as a bronchodilator (1), opening up airways for easier, better regulation of breathing. A-Pinene is also believed to offset the negative effects incurred by consuming too much THC, like paranoia and short-term memory loss. Pinene has been shown to directly influence GABA receptors (2) improving focus and concentration. Cannabis strains high in limonene are known for an energetic, uplifting euphoria that elevates mood. (3) Humulene boasts an earthy aroma with spicy undertones and has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine as an appetite suppressant.
