The science behind extraction methods for medical cannabis use has developed significantly, with more technologically demanding methods being applied.
Understanding methods of extraction, such as the use of butane method, is the key to a safe and environment-friendly operation.
Cannabidiolic Acid, or CBDA, is the original or “raw” form of CBD and it has some pretty impressive benefits on its own!
Humulene is a common cannabis terpene but one of the few sesquiterpenes. Fondly referred to as the “anti-inflammatory, cancer killing terpene”, it is our spotlight terpene of the week!
Full-spectrum concentrates are a great example of how the cannabis industry is evolving to meet the needs of its customers.
As with many of the other terpenes we have covered, terpineol is a primary terpene found within the cannabis plant. With benefits ranging from sedation to anti-cancer, this is a very potent compound!
Commonly found in tea tree oil, apple, rosemary, lilac and cannabis, Terpinolene does not contain anti-inflammatory or analgesic properties. Instead, this particular terpene is praised for its antifungal, antibacterial and sedative properties.
Cannabis oils and concentrates are derived directly from bud that has been put through an extraction process to produce the desired potency and consistency.
While THC and CBD are the two most well-known cannabinoids, there is another that should be taken note of: CBG-A, which is sometimes referred to as the “mother of all cannabinoids”.
The next terpene in our series is Beta Caryophyllene, which is sometimes referred to as the “cancer fighting terpene” - but it doesn’t stop there!
