Terpenes are the new black, the bee’s knees, the best thing since sliced gluten free bread…. but are terpenes a 'new thing'? If not, where have they been all our lives?
Medical studies on terpenes have been ongoing for decades and the findings are phenomenal.
Studies show that many terpenes can/are:
- Reduce Stress
- Increase Cognitive Functioning
- Immune Stimulant
- Pain Reliever
And the list goes on….
We can ask ourselves, If medical journals have sited these benefits since the Generation X Era, why now are we just hearing about them?
Cannabis is now mainstream and has directed our attention to terpenes. Each cannabis strain is labeled as an Indica or Sativa dominant. Common misconception is that Indica (sedative) and Sativa (alertness) solely depend on if the strain is high or low in either THC or CBD.
The truth is, that couldn’t be farther from the truth! (I just blew your mind, keep reading, it gets better!)
Cannabis strains have over 200 identified naturally occurring terpenes in them. They are aromatic organic hydrocarbons that give plants distinctive scent and taste. Each terpene also has its own therapeutic properties.
For example, if a cannabis strain has 3 specific dominant terpenes that have similar sedative properties (which enhance the effect of CBD or THC), you are probably looking at an Indica strain.
Now that Cannabis and Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) are in the spotlight, these incredibly healing terpenes are finally seeing the light of day and being given the credit they so deserve.
Here at Mitzva Wellness, we are more than a Kosher CBD company. We are working hand in hand with Industry Leaders, Scientists, Researchers and Doctors who are assisting in guiding our product development from medical studies to achieve high quality effective options for healing.
All our terpenes are procured in nature and supplied by our very own partners. All terpenes are third-party lab tested for quality and purity. The terpenes are then blended to precisely target a variety of needs, such as focus, sleep, anti-inflammation, pain management and anti-stress.
We believe in the power of the terpenes so much that in addition to our non-psychoactive CBD-rich terpene blends Good Day Formula and Good Night Formula, Mitzva Wellness now has kosher terpene tinctures without CBD for everyday use: Mitzva Sunrise Tincture - and additionally for the evening, Mitzva Sunset Tincture. These Terpene blends are an excellent option for those looking for relief but are unable to take CBD. They can be taken on their own or added to enhance your current CBD routine (we like to add it to our tea!).
When it comes to terpenes, for Mitzva Wellness…. there really is no question!
