Our new terpene enhanced formulas are created with a variety of natural terpenes, known for their therapeutic effects. Certain terpenes are emphasized within each formula to offer specific support for a wide range of conditions. No flavors other than terpenes are added, which accounts for the unusual flavors. Research is showing that terpenes and cannabinoids may be equally responsible for the beneficial effects of cannabis, and enhancing hemp oil products with added terpenes will pave the way for cannabis products going into the future. Terpenes are vital to our health and play an important role in our daily lives. Although terpenes are naturally present in cannabis, levels and types can vary, so enhancing our cannabis oils with terpenes allows more control in keeping consistent products. Along with having proven medical benefits, terpenes also work as a catalyst with CBD, allowing it to bind to receptor sites more effectively, helping it cross the blood brain barrier, and making CBD more effective at lower doses.
Understanding our Terpene enhanced hemp oil products.
Karma Farma is leading the way in terpene enhanced hemp oil formulas. Terpenes enhance the smell & flavor of many plant based fruit and vegetables that we consume daily. Terpenes are also used in the fragrance industry, and are the base ingredient in essential oils. Recent studies are revealing that terpenes may be as equally responsible for the medicinal effects of MMJ and hemp oil products, as the cannabinoids found therein. Terpenes have been reported to have a wide range of therapeutic effects on human physiology. Although we cannot make medical claims about our cannabis based products, medical science has proven that various terpenes are shown to exhibit the following properties: anti/inflammatory, analgesic, sedative, muscle relaxant, anti-mutagenic, anti-diabetic, anti/biotic, anti-cancer, anti-fungal, anti-depressant, anti-histamine, anesthetic, anti-oxidant, anti-epileptic, anticonvulsant, anti-bacterial, anti-malarial, anti-ulcer, anti-proliferative, anti-irritant, anti-viral, anti-spasmodic, and anti-septic. In addition, some terpenes have also been shown to enhance mood, reduce stress, and alcohol cravings, improve gut health, digestion, and circulation. Certain terpenes have also been shown to be helpful for bronchitis and asthma, in effect improving lung function and easing breathing. Certain terpenes are shown to promote healing of wounds & improve skin conditions. One particular terpene, Humulene, is also shown to be an appetite suppressant. As you can see, terpenes play a vital role in experiencing and maintaining a healthy state of mind and body. Adding terpene enhanced hemp oil products is an essential part of bringing one’s body into balance by providing essential building blocks to the human body. While terpenes are naturally present in cannabis, they are typically lost in the extraction process due to volatility at temperatures lower than what is required for the extraction of cannabinoids. It is a laborious process to re-introduce terpenes back into raw hemp oil, and most hemp oil processors do not add terpenes back into the raw oil. Karma Farma adds terpenes into the mix when producing finished hemp oil products such as our terpene infused tinctures and topicals. Terpenes are considered safe for consumption at levels less than 3% of total volume. Our formulas contain terpene levels at 1.75% to 2.75%. Keep in mind that flavorings are NOT used to enhance the flavor of our terpene enhanced oils. This accounts for the unique flavors that some may find un-appealing. The benefits of our terpene blends far out weigh the unusual flavors, and after 60 + seconds of keeping the oil under your tongue, it’s easy to take a drink of something to wash away the flavor. A small price to pay for a superior product.
When using our 1200 mg formulas, keep in mind that 1 drop of oil equals approximately 1 mg of CBD. It is suggested to start with 5-10 drops placed under the tongue, and held for a minute or two. This allows the mucus membranes to absorb the cannabinoids and terpenes into the bloodstream rapidly. If an effect is not felt within 30 minutes, 5-10 more drops may be taken. Lower amounts of cannabis may be more effective, so start low, and work your way up until you have a therapeutic response. That can be used as a baseline moving forward. Decrease the amount taken once symptoms are under control. Suggested average daily amounts of CBD are 15-30 mgs. While these are averages, different conditions require different amounts of CBD to effectively control symptoms. Chronic pain typically requires higher mgs of CBD than normal, to start.
