What are Terpenes?
Secreted in the same glands that produce cannabinoids like THC and CBD in the Cannabis plant, Terpenes are the pungent oils that color cannabis varieties with distinctive flavors like berry, citrus, lavender and mint. Besides their wonderful aromas, terpenes play a large role in producing and influencing the medicinal and enjoyable effects of cannabis. Various terpenes are responsible for various effects.
Terpenes are 100% legal. Terpenes do not contain THC, CBD, tobacco, nicotine or psychoactive chemicals.
Some Common Terpenes Found in Cannabis
The following are five of the most common terpenes to be found in the various strains of Cannabis:
  • Alpha-Pinene, Beta-Pinene (Memory + energy + focus)
  • Caryophyllene (Painkilling + anti-inflammatory + CB1 Cannabinoid receptor agonist)
  • Limonine (Mood lifter + anti-depressant + anti-anxiety)
  • Linalool (Relax body & mind + sleep + painkilling / anti-inflammatory)
  • Mycrene (Couchlock effect (stoned) + Cannabinoid uptake enhancer)
How to use Terpenes
Terpene drops can be simply added to any legal smoking herb, tobacco, vaping mix or e-liquid to enhance the aroma. Simply add 1-2 drops per session. It is recommended to allow the terpenes a few minutes to dry and/or mix before use.

    just want all of you to know of my first experience with CBX Relief. I actually mixed two drops with 1/4 tsp of sunflower oil – let it stand then rubbed on the soles of my feet last night as well as putting a very tiny bit on spots on my body that were hurting namely crown of head, back of neck & lower back. The pain disappeared and numbness lessened in my normally numb feet ! I went comfortably to sleep – woke at 3pm (normal for me) to go to the bathroom and found my legs and feet so much better I could walk easily – amazing! When I got up this morning it was the same.

    Imagine if the plant becomes legal – we could grow our own and put it in the bath – make it into lotions and salves and rub any part of our body that’s painful!
