Taking Advantage of Terpenes for Aromatherapy

If you are someone who regularly enjoys smoking cannabis, you probably fall into one of two categories. The first category of pothead is someone who really enjoys all of the smells and wonderful aromas that you can get from smoking a marijuana flower. These people are going to be a lot more meticulous about how they smoke weed and make sure that they are getting all of the benefits associated with the smells of the plant. However, cannabis users in the other category may not care so much about how they are smoking their weed, and would be inclined to simply stuff a bowl of dried weed and light up. In either case, it is important to recognize that people are simply using their cannabis in the way that they see fit.

As long as you are enjoying your cannabis and getting high off of it, you will have no complaints from me. However, it is also true that you can find an even more pleasant experience with your marijuana if your bud is not over-fried or too dried. If you did not know, there is something called terpenes within the marijuana plant that enhances the flavor and aroma of your weed. Marijuana that has been overdried is not going to have as many terpenes in it, which will make the overall flavor and smell of the bud not as delicious and pleasing. For some people, the aroma that comes with burning fresh weed is therapeutic in a way – hence the term, aromatherapy. Not only are you enjoying a nice and relaxing high, but your nose is filled with the sweet and natural smells of the terpenes in your cannabis.

If you are looking for more information about what terpenes are, then look no further. When you invest in some good quality weed and open your container to smell it, you will surely be able to tell the difference between high quality and low quality smells, and a lot of it comes down to the amount of terpenes in the plant.

People really enjoy using terpenes as a form of aromatherapy and it is becoming more and more popular as weed is legalized from state to state across America. So you may be wondering, what the heck are terpenes? We know that they are found in fresh weed, but what are they? Well, terpenes do more than just smell good. They can also make you feel good too. Certain studies have shown that terpenes can be part of the plant that enhances your mood and improves your emotional health and energy levels.

Some strains of marijuana that contain much more terpenes than others are better for improving your focus as well. So there is a reason that you should probably be smoking more fresh weed if you really want to reap all the benefits that terpenes have to offer. Like I said earlier, I’m not here to tell anybody how to smoke their weed. If you like really dry buds in your pipe, then that’s all you my friend! However, there is definitely scientific evidence behind the benefits of terpenes, and part of that lies in the fact that they are great for aromatherapy. 

It is also worth mentioning that there are several different types of terpenes and they can differ in how they enhance your mood and how your brain responds. Myrcene is a type of terpene that is most commonly found in popular marijuana strains. Mycrene has a much earthier smell than other terpenes, and that is one way that you can identify it in your cannabis. This type of terpene is great for relaxing and feeling lightly sedated.
