Jump On The Terpene Trampoline!!!
I am an 11 year experienced massage therapist. I’ve always tried to understand the human body and what I could do naturally in aiding my clients to live a healing, healthier life, not to mention, help myself as well.
In the last 2 years I have taken a shift in my profession. I am now in the cannabis industry. Not just for the glitz , Glam and status. Instead for me, it’s the Medicinal. Unfortunately, many in the industry are shying away from medicinal side more and more. You may begin to see more Rec stores as opposed to Medical stores. Yes, we all know of course Rec marijuana is a lucrative industry. However, let us not forget the purpose of this amazing plant, and the real reason it has helped launch legalization in the first place. Helping the masses medically due to its medical benefits!!
More and more articles and seminars are popping up everywhere based on Cannabinoids https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki
This co-worker of mine has educated me and turned me to Terpenes. What are Terpenes? Well in a nut shell, Terpenes and Terpenoids are the primary constituents of the essential oils of many types of plants, fruits and flowers. Essential oils are used widely as fragrances in perfumery, and in medicine and alternative medicines. They also display unique therapeutic effects that may contribute meaningfully to the entourage effects of cannabis-based medicinal extracts. More and more we are realizing what can be done to add these Terpene components to THC and CBD products. Helping on a medical/ medicinal level. However, finding the ones that attribute these components organically and effectively to their products, is hard.
I came across this article about the halting effects of vitamin C and blood cancer. Which got me thinking of how we can incorporate the Terpenes of Vitamine C to our Cannabis Products. So we are getting at that point, benefits from Terpenes, THC and CBD in our body. So many levels of awesome!! If possible. http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-08-27-vitamin-c-found-to-halt-blood-cancer-when-administered-in-high-doses-so-why-wont-the-cancer-industry-use-it.html
I know how overwhelming it can be to learn new things. Its hard to grasp your brain around something that is not what western medicine has taught you to know. To most it is fascinating. To others it is scary, and overwhelming. I get it, it is nerve wracking, but it doesn’t have to be. My best advice is to pick one thing at a time and research. Stick with one read a day. Once you feel you understand that topic, then move to the next.
More information is coming to light everyday. We can benefit from more than just THC and CBD. Like bringing terpenes into the mix! Dig deeper into the rabbit hole and you will be amazed!! Is it the cure all? Well, of course not, but it’s a start to changing your way of thinking and habits of living. To me that is the golden key. Changing habits for the best. Our bodies are our temple, isn’t that the old saying……… Well then why not have a kick ass temple!!
