Let’s talk about terpenes!
For those of you who don’t know already CBD stands for cannabidiol, and it is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant.
CBD is the most prevalent cannabinoid in cannabis, and it has made its way to be one of the most popular holistic medicines in the world.
Unlike THC containing marijuana products, CBD products are legal in all 50 states in the US, as long as they contain less than .3% THC. Furthermore, CBD products are also legal as per the World Anti-Doping Agency Banned Substance list, so they are accessible for us by athletes such as myself.
Over the past year or two, there has been an enormous amount of CBD companies popping up all over the globe.
CBD products can certainly be your natural treatment for a wide range of health issues, but only if you are buying high quality CBD products.
One aspect which separates the CBD products made by Canna Hemp with all the other cannabidiol products I have tried so far, is that they maintain the terpenes and terpenoids of the cannabis plant in their elixirs (tinctures), topical pain relief cream, body lotion, and vape products as well!
If you don’t understand why it is so important to keep the full spectrum of terpenes in your CBD products, keep reading below!
What are Terpenes and How do the Terpenes in Cannabis Affect Me?
Essentially speaking, terpenes and terpenoids are the components of any plant which cause the smell (aroma) that we commonly understand the plant by.
If you are wondering “how many terpenes are there,” well, there are over 200 known terpenes in the cannabis plant alone!
If you are familiar with essential oil and aromatherapy, plant terpenes are the driving force behind this as well!
If we are talking about terpenes and terpenoids, there is a small difference that you should understand.
Most people use terpenes and terpenoids interchangeably, but this is a simple and common mistake.
Although similar in structure, terpenes are hydrocarbons (the only present elements are carbon and hydrogen), while terpenoids are chemically modified through the oxidation process (the drying and curing process of the cannabis plant).
Terpenoids are essentially the by-product of terpenes themselves, and their smells both cause correlating effects.
Terpenes and Aromatherapy
As I said before, plant terpenes are responsible for many of the beneficial aspects of essential oil use and aromatherapy as well.
Believe it or not, the THC, CBD, or other cannabinoids in the cannabis plant are not responsible for the aroma you smell.
This is all the terpenes!
While THC is responsible for the psycho-active effects of marijuana, terpenes do have mind-altering effects (I’m being very fasciitis with this statement by the way).
Similar to how other essential oils are being touted as the oldest-new remedy to help with stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues, the terpenes in the cannabis plant are especially powerful for helping with the same types of issues!
Terpenes in cannabis can positively effect serotonin uptake in the brain, dopamine activity, and more!
If you aren’t understanding it by now, CBD terpenes are especially useful to go along with the other beneficial aspects of the cannabinoid, cannabidiol.
One of the only limiting factors of the benefits of cannabis terpenes at this time is the fact that cannabis is still labeled as a schedule 1 drug by the DEA, and cannot be adequately studied in the United States.
However, in the limited studies done, the cannabis plant terpenes have shown incredible effects which you will be sure to want to take advantage of!
Let’s Talk About Canna Hemp Products!
Now that we have a general understanding of the benefits of terpenes, let’s look at the terpene containing CBD products from CannaHemp, and their other wonderful products as well!
Canna Hemp CBD Elixir
I’ve tried quite a few CBD tincture products since learning about the benefits of CBD this past summer, but this was my first time trying a CBD tincture which properly maintains its cannabis terpenes.
From the first use I was absolutely blown away with the effectiveness of each of these elixirs.
One of the most amazing part about cannabis terpenes is that your body “knows” which ones will work best for it.
Don’t believe me? Well, it’s true!
The human body, and endocannabinoid system, is so powerfully in tune with itself that it naturally gravitates towards which cannabis plant will help itself the most. The easiest way to figure out which cannabis plant will give you the “best” effects is to simply see which one you like the smell of!
The same goes for these CBD elixirs!
CannaHemp has an amazing line of elixirs, which are:
- CBD Elixir Calm
- CBD Elixir Euphoria
- CBD Elixir Focus
- CBD Elixir Relief
- CBD Elixir Sleep
Although each of these products does have a designated name, and the adequate terpene profile to match their name, CannaHemp does state that these are only names, and not intended uses.
Well, for the sake of this article (and from my experience) we will work with the understanding that each of these CBD elixirs do promote their named intent.
These elixirs contain only MCT Oil, cannabidiol (CBD), and terpenes.
I fell in love with these products within a day, and I am sure you will too!
My wife used the Calm elixir and the Focus elixir the most, while I used more of the Euphoria, and Relief.
However, I did use them all at various times myself.
The Calm elixir contains 660.6 mg of CBD per bottle, and has an earth but citrusy taste. My wife preferred this product over others because she has occasional panic-attack issues, and it was excellent for helping her stay “calm” throughout the day!
Within just 5-10 minutes of using this CBD elixir you start to feel a calming and soothing sensation in your mind.
If you suffer from anxiety-like issues, or have a lot of daily stress, this is the elixir for you!
The main terpene in this product is eucalyptol, which is responsible for the smell of the eucalyptus plant.
The Euphoria elixir was my personal favorite to use in the mornings, because it is honestly the perfect way to start your day.
I don’t care if you had a bad sleep or not, this CBD elixir will get your mind right to start your day!
I would describe the taste of this elixir as a bold orange, with a mix of citrus.
The Euphoria elixir contains 656.9 mg of CBD per bottle.
The main terpene in this elixir is limonene, which obviously supplies its citrusy flavor. Many times, I will mix my CBD tincture with my morning coffee because I don’t necessarily like the taste of them.
However, especially with this elixir, I cannot wait to use it in the morning!
It is a delicious and nutritious way to start my day, every day!
This was my wife’s second favorite CBD tincture by CannaHemp, and she uses it before we go to train every day.
The Focus elixir contains 658.9mg of CBD per bottle, and its highest contained terpene is also limonene.
I would describe the taste of this product as an earthy grapefruit (if that makes any sense).
One aspect of this elixir which I immediately felt was that you have a much-more clear head after using it. I wouldn’t compare it to the type of focus found in caffeine, but a more natural focus.
My wife enjoys it before we go to train because it helps with reducing muscle soreness, and the ability to focus on getting a designated workout done is much better.
If you are at work and struggling with some chronic pain, and need help focusing on your job, this is the elixir for you!
If you are looking for help with pain management, or simply improving how your body feels daily, this is clearly the best CBD elixir for you!
The CBD Relief elixir contains 670.5mg of CBD per bottle.
The highest containing terpene in this tincture product is myrcene, with a-Pinene being second.
a-Pinene is the terpene associated with the smell of the common pine tree, and you can really taste it here!
The Relief elixir tastes piney, with a hint of lime. I traditionally use this product in the middle of my day, after my workouts are done. Especially for the chronic back pain I have been dealing with, this is the best product!
I will say, I am legitimately impressed with how much this CBD tincture helps you fall asleep!
A lot of CBD products can stimulate the mind, and make falling asleep more difficult.
However, the CBD Sleep Elixir is truly amazing. I combine this with melatonin and zinc before sleep, and it ha been a truly awesome experience.
The simplest way I can describe the taste is that is an orange taste, almost like a mandarin orange.
The CBD Sleep Elixir contains 660.1mg of CBD per bottle, and the most prevalent terpene here is b-Myrcene.
Even just ½ of a dropper of this before sleep will help you fall asleep faster, and stay asleep better!
I didn’t believe it would have this much of a beneficial affect on me, but I was happily impressed!
Did you know that the skin is the largest organ in the human body?
Well, if you understand that fact, you’ll probably be much more focused on treating your skin properly!
Luckily, CannaHemp has you covered for this as well!
The CannaHemp CBD Body Lotions are amazing body lotions. Personally, I don’t often use body lotion, because I am blessed with easy-to-manage skin that basically takes care of itself.
However, these body lotions smell so good, and make my skin feel even better, that even I use them every day!
Another benefit of these lotions is that since they do contain CBD, they help with muscle pain and soreness!
Each body lotion contains about 55 servings, and contain about 2.2mg of CBD per serving.
The flavors for the CannaHemp CBD Body Lotion are:
Of course, these body lotions contain real cannabis terpenes as well as other rejuvenating products! The terpene profile of each lotion dictates is smell, which is a natural way to produce amazing smelling body lotions!
Ingredients of the CannaHemp Body Lotions Are:
- Organic Coconut Oil
- Organic Hemp Seed Oil
- Organic Cottonseed Oil
- Cannabidiol Extract (CBD)
These ingredients are all important because they stimulate the growth of new skin cells, and help your skin to feel more naturally hydrated.
I was honestly surprised how much I enjoyed using these lotions!
One of my favorite uses for these body lotions is on my legs after a hard day of training. Not only does this make my skin feel good, but the lotion is easy to apply and help stimulate circulation to help with muscle repair.
I am sure that you will love using these body lotions, because they are effective and smell great!
If you are sensitive to smells and fragrances, the Free & Cleared is a perfect option!
Regardless which you choose to use, these CannaHemp Body Lotions will certainly improve your skin and make your body feel great!
If you are dealing with sore muscles or chronic pain, this is the product for you!
The CannaHemp body lotion contains enough CBD to benefit your skin, and help with muscle repair a little bit, but this topical pain relief cream is perfect for improving how your muscles feel!
Ingredients of the CannaHemp Pain Relief Cream Are:
- Cocoa Butter
- Shea Butter
- Coconut Oil
- Hemp Seed Oil
- Eucalyptus Essential Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Rosemary Essential Oil
- Cannabis Terpenes
- Cannabidiol (CBD)
I love this pain relief cream because it has a very similar “feeling” as IcyHot or BioFreeze, but it clearly has legitimate benefits for your body.
One of the reasons it is so important to use a CBD pain relief cream instead of just a menthol or camphor based topical pain relief cream is that the CBD legitimately recovers your muscles, ligaments, joints, and even bones!
CBD products work to reduce inflammation which causes many pain-issues, and stimulate new cell growth. CBD has even shown in studies to stimulate bone growth, which makes topical CBD products even more impressive!
The additional ingredients in this topical pain relief cream are what sets it apart it from others.
Within just a couple minutes of applying this product to my back, I can clearly feel relief and looser muscles.
If you have issues with chronic pain in any part of your body, I highly suggest this CannaHemp topical pain relief cream as a natural solution.
Canna Hemp CBD Vape Cartridge and CBD Vape Pens
I rarely use vapeable products because many other forms of CBD are much more effective to me, but the terpenes in the CannaHemp CBD Vape Cartridge and CBD Vape Pens made them very attractive to me.
CannaHemp makes two different vape cartridges, and 5 different vape pens.
The CannaHemp Vape Cartridges are disposable CBD hemp oil vape cartridges, made with pure CBD extract, and real cannabis terpenes.
These vape cartridges are THC-free, and legitimately the highest quality cartridges you will find.
The flavor of the Canna Hemp Vape Cartridge I tried was Tangerine Dream.
Tangerine Dream on the other hand is sourced from a Sativa, which has generally more energizing and uplifting effects. As the name says, this vape liquid is citrusy, and tangerine like in flavor.
Tangerine Dream is also powerful for reducing pain, but the terpenes give you a much more energized feel.
In fact, the terpenes of this vape seem to be so stimulating for me that I prefer to use this vape in the middle of my day when I am writing blogs.
I didn’t try this at night at all, but I would guess that it would not be an idea.
Both Canna Hemp Vape Cartridges are excellent for quickly reducing pain throughout the entire body, although their terpenes have differing effects as well.
I enjoyed both vape cartridges, and I am sure you will too!
Using these CBD vape pens is the easiest thing ever, and their tastes are amazing to match.
To use these CBD pens, all you need to do is breathe in!
The terpene composition of these vape pens match with the elixirs, and I can say the tastes are the same too. Along with this, the effects are very similar to the elixirs.
Just like the CannaHemp CBD Elixirs, the CBD Vape Pens are:
Personally, my favorite is the relief. But all of them are excellent options! The terpenes in these vape products provide excellent relief, and make them all soothing in numerous ways.
Regardless of what you are trying to treat in your body or mind, Canna Hemp has the vape pen which is right for you!
Did you know that pretty much all chapsticks on the market only dry and damage your lips over time? If you want to truly protect your lips all year round, you need a natural lip balm.
These CBD lip balms stand up to the 0-degree winter I am going through in New York right now, so I am sure they will work for you too!
The purpose of any lip balm product is to hydrate your lips, and help protect them from outside elements. After just one use of these lip balms, I am sure that you will understand how beneficial they are!
The Canna Hemp CBD Lip Balms Contain:
- Organic Coconut Oil
- Organic Tamanu Oil
- Organic Hemp Seed Oil
- Vitamin E Tocopherol
- Cannabidiol Extract (CBD)
These lip balms are non-GMO, and do not contain any:
Unlike name brand lip balms such as ChapStick, this CBD lip balm is made to support your lips all year round!
The flavors are delicious too!
I can’t say I use a lip balm specifically for the “taste” or aroma, but the natural flavoring and real cannabis terpenes make these pretty tasty!
The flavors of the CannaHemp Lip Balm Are:
Regardless of which taste you like the best, these CBD lip balms will do their job better than probably any lip balm you have ever tried before!
Concluding Thoughts – My Canna Hemp Product Review
The terpenes and terpenoids in these CBD products sets CannaHemp apart from all the other companies I have tried so far.
CannaHemp has even more excellent products that I did not yet get a chance to try, too!
If you are looking for a full-spectrum CBD company that goes above and beyond, CannaHemp should be on the top of your list.
