Lucent Botanicals formulate specific terpenes into tasty CBD mints for targeted effects. CBD and Terpenes are extracted from marijuana aka cannibas.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis. It is a non-addictive substance. Both CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) have significant therapeutic attributes. But unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel intoxicated. CBD can provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression and many other conditions.
Terpenes are volatile aromatic molecules that evaporate easily. Terpenes are a useful basis for aromatherapy, a popular holistic healing modality. There are 200 terpenes in cannabis, but only a few matter. Monoterpenes, diterpenes, and sesquiterpenes are characterized by the number of repeating units of a 5-carbon molecule called isoprene, the structural hallmark of all terpenoid compounds.
Terpenoids and cannabinoids both increase blood flow, enhance cortical activity, and kill respiratory pathogens, including MRSA, the antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Cannabinoid-terpenoid interactions have various pain relieving and other effects.
“It’s possible to choose the terpenes that lead CBD in a particular direction and leave out the terpenes that take it in the opposite direction,” said Chris Cooper, Founder and CEO. “The terpenes that you add to help you sleep are entirely different than the ones you add to create more energy. If you’re doing a full spectrum product, you don’t have any control over compounds besides CBD.”
CBD tinctures and Lucent Botanicals CBD mints provide effects within 5 to 20 minutes. The tinctures taste like hemp but the mints have mint or other flavors.
The Chewing mints are absorbed into the body more effectively than the tinctures.
