Herbal remedies and natural remedies of Hemp and CBD oil
Herbal remedies are becoming more popular these days as more people are looking for natural remedies to help deal with pain, anxiety, sleep disorders and much more. There are many natural remedies that have gained attention over recent years, but none more than the Cannabis plant has to offer.
When it comes to herbal remedies, most people are familiar with the term CBD. The use of CBD oil, smokable flower and edibles as natural remedies has widely spread across the world. The reason why many people are turning to CBD is due to the wide range of benefits they feel it has including: relieving pain, boosting the immune system, reducing depression and anxiety and healing the skin.
But while most CBD users are familiar with the term CBD, products with a high CBD count doesn’t always mean much. It’s the terpenes that count. The Cannabis plant’s terpene profile contributes to the medicinal properties. Yes, CBD does play a role in that as well. As a matter of fact, it’s the terpenes and cannabinoids working together that produce the health benefits.
There are at least 20,000 different terpenes in existence and more than 100 of these terpenes are found in the cannabis plant. While many terpenes that are produced by the cannabis plant are also found elsewhere in nature, there are some terpenes that have high concentrations in the cannabis plants, such as myrcene, limonene, linalool, humulene, pinene.
