Israeli researchers are investigating the potential for making cannabis products even more effective than they might be already, by looking to add terpenes back in.
Many vape pens, oils, edibles, and other cannabis products that are currently on the market, leave the terpenes out during the extraction process.
Those terpenes are known to interact with neurotransmitters to help relieve pain.
What Are Terpenes?
"Terpenes are chemicals that you find in plants, they're oil based... the terpenes in cannabis are really fascinating, they have some wonderful properties including anti-inflammatory properties, immune balancing properties... [and they help to] enhance the benefits of cbd." - Dr. B Rawls.
Terpenes May Be Just As Important
"Cannabis makes terpene molecules, citrus plants make terpene molecules, evergreen plants make terpene molecules,... [and] they do have medical effect even at very low concentrations." -Dr. J Felice
For those who are looking to get the highest quality cannabis products out there, researchers suggest that those products which include terpenes added back in, might have the potential to offer more benefit, fueling what's known as the entourage effect.
Israeli scientists are currently studying terpenes and experimenting with adding them back, to explore the full potential cannabis can offer.
Building A Reputation
Scientists are working hard in Israel and other regions around the world, to establish a reputation for cannabis as a viable mainstream medicinal product.
In the meantime though, there are many who don't need any more studies or stories in order to be convinced, today there are millions of people who have learned the truth about cannabis, shedding the previously held ignorant misconceptions that they had about this "drug" for so long.
