CBD 101: What Are Terpenes?

What are Terpenes?  Terpenes are like essential oils. They are the natural scents and tastes from plants and nature.  They can induce a targeted response based on smell and tastes, much like diffusing rosemary essential oil helps improve memory.  There are hundreds of different terpenes in nature.  The earth is amazing, right!

Sativa vs Indica

Terpene specific strains induce a targeted response.  The cannabis plant’s terpene profile combined with its CBD/THC levels induce either a relaxed, calm feeling or an energized, productive feeling.  The cannabis plant breed which induces the energized and productive response is labeled Sativa and usually has a high level of pinene and/or limonene, while the relaxed and calming response is labeled as Indica andtypically has a high level of myrcene.

Terpene Strains

Terpene strains are byproducts of the Sativa and Indica broad categories.  After cross-breeding the Indica and Sativa plant’s, various other plants with more specific responses, were developed.  These strains have names like Bubba Kush and Grandaddy Purple.  They are a mix of the two main strains, with varying ratios.  There are literally hundreds of Terpenes strains now.

 

Products

The products below contain and are tested for terpene content.  The lab reports (found on the company websites) reflect the amount of terpenes present in the product.  Lab Reports are very important.  Without the labs, a user can not know exactly what is in their product.

Terpenes Only (without CBD)

Terpenes can be purchased separately and added to any CBD product to create more benefits and expand the CBD uses.  They can also be purchased to add flavor to any CBD product that is not pleasing to taste.

True Terpenes is an excellent source because they will define the benefits and advantages of each Terpene and Terpene Strain, as well as the mix and makeup of the Terpene strain to reflect which Terpene is dominant.

This is the Terpene Strain BLUE DREAM

BLUE DREAM is very effective for ADHD because it has sufficient amount of Myrcene (calming) and Pinene (aids memory).

CBD 101: How To Read CBD Lab Reports

How to read CBD Lab Reports.  Lab reports are essential to researching and finding the best CBD product.  They provide a sense of transparency between the customer and the company.  They allow the consumer to know if the product is free of toxins, chemicals, and other possible synthetic substances.  Lab reports also reflect content of the product.  Is it an isolate that only contains CBD, or does it contain additional cannabinoids, making it a full spectrum product?  What about terpenes?  Are they also included in the product?

When researching a company or product, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, look for independent 3rd party lab results.  Why?  Because without a lab report, you do not know if the product contains any actual CBD, additional cannabinoids, toxins, or THC, if you are trying to avoid.  If the company does not have labs posted, or refuse to share the labs, they either do not test (which is a HUGE red flag), or the test results reflect something unfavorable.  

This is a high level overview for what to look for when researching labs.  I’m not a scientist, so I’m sure there is more to labs than what I’m going to share. This is my approach to reviewing labs…

What do I look for on the Lab Reports?

 FIRST, ARE LABS AVAILABLE TO CONSUMERS?

Lab reports are the first item to look for when researching a product.  Does the company have 3rd party lab reports?  Do they publish the reports online?  Can a customer request lab reports? 

Why is it important? 

A company that does not publish lab reports either does not test the product, or the product does not contain what the label says.  No company will publish unfavorable reports, so if they do not publish or provide reports, then avoid the product.   

CONTENT –

FULL Spectrum vs Isolate

Full spectrum products contain a mix of cannabinoids and terpenes.  This a pic of a full spectrum lab report.  Notice how you can see volume for cannabinoids CBD, as well as THC, CBC, CBN, etc.

 

Isolate products contain only CBD and no other cannabinoids or terpenes.  Other names for Isolate products are Pure CBD, 100% CBD, 99%+ CBD, 99%+ Crystalline Powder, and broad spectrum. Isolates are always THC Free.  Here is a pic of an Isolate product lab report.  Notice how the only Cannabinoids with volume is CBD and CBDv.

Cannabinoid Content

Through my research I’ve learned that CBG can help stabilize mood when combined with CBD.  So, for example, if I’m having trouble regulating my mood and experiencing bouts of anger, I’m looking for a product with CBD combined with CBG, right?

Here are examples of full spectrum products with CBG and another without CBG.  Both are full Spectrum because they include more cannabinoids than just CBD.

With CBG…

Without CBG…

 

Here are more labs from an Isolate (No THC).  Notice that no other cannabinoids are present, especially THC. 

Check out this article to see our recommended brands and what cannabinoids and terpenes they include. 

Terpenes

Terpenes are similar to essential oils.  They are the aromas and tastes associated with the original hemp or cannabis plant.  Terpenes can provide a targeted response such as a calming feeling.  Myrcene and linalool are both known to have sedative properties, while pinene is known to aid memory.  Not all labs test for Terpenes which does not mean they are absent. Contact the company directly if you have questions about Terpenes if they are not reflected in the lab results.  Here is an example of lab reports that reflect Terpene content.

Startups vs Experts  

Startups

Are the labs submitted and completed by the actual company you bought from, or a large CBD distributer which bottles and labels the product? 

With this emerging market, many startups are looking to cash in on the CBD industry and will simply order from a large distributor and have little understanding or knowledge of the industry itself.  Do not be fooled by a pretty label. 

These companies lack knowledge and understanding of CBD.  This is why it is important to purchase from a reputable company that has been operating for more than 2-3 years.  This gives the company much needed experience, customer vetting, and the customer confidence the company will be around for years to come.

Experts

Companies that harvest, bottle and distribute (experts in the industry) are who you want to purchase from.  These are the companies that have been around since the 2014 Farm Bill or shortly thereafter.  These companies have experience with CBD, they have a large customer base with excellent customer reviews.  They know the product.  They know every aspect from growing to harvesting, to extracting, to distributing.

CBD 101: Full Spectrum vs Isolate

What is the difference?  Full Spectrum vs isolate?

Full Spectrum

Full Spectrum is a product that has CBD plus additional cannabinoids (like CBC, CBG, CBN, THC, etc) and/or additional terpenes….basically, it’s not an Isolate.

CBDPure is a full Spectrum product because it has many cannabinoids including trace, legal amounts of THC.  This mix of cannabinoids and terpenes provide an entourage effect of benefits. View the CPDPure Lab Reports.

Lab reports are very important.  You must read the labs to know what is in the product.  Does it have THC?  Does it have CBG which has been researched and proven to stabilize mood?  Does it have CBC which has been researched and proven to aid in brain development?

Isolate

An Isolate includes CBD only (one cannabinoid), no other terpenes or cannabinoids.  There are fancy names for isolates such as Broad Spectrum, 100% CBD, 100% Pure CBD, 99%+ Crystalline CBD and so on.

KoiCBD is an Isolate product.  Their products include no THC and the labs reflect exactly the content.

Summary

An Isolate is like a vitamin C pill, while a Full Spectrum product is like an entire orange (provides vitamin c, fiber, other nutritional qualities). Both are good, both provide benefits, but the full spectrum product provides a bit more.

It is important to read the labs to see if you are purchasing an Isolate or Full Spectrum and what is included if it is labeled full spectrum.

_________________________

HIGH QUALITY STANDARDS

Our strict high standards mean you get the very best the market has to offer.

We have evaluated and compiled a list of the best all natural (or organic) gummies on the market today

  1. All Natural or Organic ingredients?
  2. Has the company been operating for more than two years and is an established company with longevity and experience in the CBD market?
  3. Does the company provide independent 3rd party lab reports that are available to review online or by request?
  4. What do the Customer Reviews say?

To avoid toxins and other surprise ingredients, we recommend using these criteria to avoid purchasing a product made with synthetic CBD, known as spice.  Spice is very dangerous and is highly toxic.  Never purchase CBd products from eBay and other questionable sources.

The dangers of purchasing from unreliable sources.

NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS

One of the first and most important ways to manage ADHD is to eliminate artificial colors and flavors. As for priorities, this our first criteria for selecting best gummies.

If a person is sensitive to artificial colors and/or flavoring, the benefits of CBD will be negated by any dyes or flavoring in the product. It is very important to remove all dyes and flavoring from the diet to achieve beneficial results with CBD.

DOSING

When just starting CBD, start with 4-5 mg per day for the first 4-7 days.  If no improvement, increase slowly for another 4-7 days until beneficial results are noticed.

If you are transitioning to using gummies from an oil product, simply start with the dosage you left when using oil drops.

The Gummies below are meet our strict criteria of no artificial ingredients, established in the CBD industry, provide independent 3rd party lab results and all have excellent customer feedback.

Step 1- Measure your honey, put in a pot to warm (do not exceed 320 degrees F/160 degrees C.)

Step 3 – crush the CBD until it is the consistency of powder and pour into warmed honey.

Step 4 – Mix it well until all the cbd is melted and mixed evenly into the honey.

Step 5 – Let cool and pour into your glass jar to store for later.  

How to enjoy:

  • measured spoonful
  • in coffee

  • peanut butter and honey sandwich

What are some more ideas for using honey infused with CBD?

 

CBD For Memory and Focus

CBD For Memory and Focus:

CBD, whether it’s a full spectrum or isolate product, has a long list of benefits including anti-anxiety, anti-depressant and anti-inflammatory.  Many people find that by reducing their anxiety and/or depression they are able to focus better.  However, if you want a more targeted approach, you can look to additional cannabinoids and/or terpenes (full spectrum) to improve memory and focus.

CBC is another cannabinoid (like CBD) found in Cannabis and has shown to improve memory and focus thru brain development.

Terpenes are similar to essential oils.  They can help enduce a response through aroma and tastes.  Pinene is a terpene that is known to help improve memory and focus.

Products

Oils –

NuLeaf Naturals Oil because it has CBC which helps improve brain development and memory. (Promo Code:  ADHD15 for 15% Off)


4Corners Cannabis Tincture/Oil has been described as providing a “clear, energetic, focus”. (Promo Code:  ADHD15 for 15% Off)

How to Infuse CBD Terpsolate To Oil

Ever thought to make CBD drops yourself? Have you considered how to infuse terpsolates to oil?  Did you know the cost of concentrates, like terpsolates, is more affordable and economical than purchasing pre-bottled drops.

CBDistillery has terpsolates that can be infused to any carrier oil to be used as sublingual or ingested drops.  This option is very affordable as well as flexible because the consumer can determine the concentration level (potency).  It is so easy to do and much easier than you ever believed.

CBDistillery has several THC Free options (Jack Herer, Serendipity, Tangie, Bubba Kush), as well as a full spectrum terpsolate (Blue Dream, Cherry Pie) which has legal, trace amounts of THC as well as other cannabinoids to create an entourage effect of benefits.

CBDistillery’s Terpsolates include either a full spectrum CBD or an Isolate with Strain specific Terpenes to provide targeted responses.  These Terpsolate products are available at 1 gram (1000 milligrams) so by infusing them to your own oil, they are more affordable than pre-bottled options.

Supplies

CBD Terpsolate – I used CBDistillery Jack Herer Terpsolate. 99% pure CBD Isolate plus strain specific Terpenes. (THC Free)

Organic MCT Oil.  (Other options are olive oil, hemp seed oil, coconut oil).  MCT oil is a water soluble option and provides better bioavailability than fat soluble oils.  This option is more efficient allowing the body to absorb more of the CBD therefore needing less of a CBD dose.

Amber bottles – 1 oz bottles (30ml)

Funnel – for easy pouring.

Double Boiler Set up – Pot of slow boiling water.  Glass bowl on top of water, but not touching the water.  Must be gentle boil and not too hot.  Cannabinoids start to evaporate at around 250 degrees Fahrenheit

Candy Thermometer – to monitor temperature.

STEPS (to make 1000 mg in 30 ml of oil; 33mg/ml)

  1.  Measure 15-30 ml of MCT oil.  (I used a children’s Motrin measuring cup…filled to 15 ml twice)  30 ml will provide an oil with 33mg/ml or 1.1 mg per drop.  15 ml will produce an oil with 67mg/ml or 2.2 mg per drop.
  2. Add the 1 Gram (1000 mg) Terpsolate to SLOWLY melt.  (Use a candy thermometer to keep temperature under 250 degrees Fahrenheit so as to not evaporate and waste the  cannabinoids.) 
  3. Melt completely, mix evenly, and pour into amber glass bottle using the funnel to get every drop.  This oil contains 1000mg of CBD in 30 ml of oil for 33mg/ml.  (1 drop = 1.1 mg)

you are all set set with your new affordable drops made from a great quality product.

To see our entire list of recommended brands, just click here. 

This pic shows the boiling point for most cannabinoids.  It is important to heat at less than this temp to preserve the cannabinoids present in the terpsolate.

CBD: The Journey Begins – How To Start Using CBD

So you want to start using CBD. You’ve heard amazing stories about how wonderful it is, or you’ve never heard of it and want to learn more. Or you’re completely overwhelmed with all the information and just want to know how to begin.  It is a great journey, but has a lot of information to navigate and it can become overwhelming.  Hang in there and take it one step at a time.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of industrial hemp (cannabis sativa) plants. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and is being scientifically investigated for numerous reasons. Most people have heard of a cannabinoid called THC, which is the ingredient in cannabis that gets users high. Unlike THC, CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and does not cause a high.

What’s the difference between CBD from hemp and CBD from marijuana?

Both hemp and marijuana are from the same genus and species (Cannabis Sativa). The characteristic of having low THC is the single difference that most rely on to distinguish industrial hemp from marijuana. CBD taken from hemp and marijuana is the exact same compound.

For a more detailed explanation, read this article by 4 Corners Cannabis on the difference between Hemp and Marijuana. 

How Do I Know How Much To Give?

Since there is no standardized measurements in this emerging industry, it is important to be able to determine how much CBD is in the bottle and then convert the MG in the bottle, to MG in each ML of fluid (MG/ML).  Then again convert to MG in each Drop. (Don’t worry, we have a calculator to help)

It is recommended that everyone starts at a very low dose of 2 mg per day to slowly activate the endocannabinoid system then slowly increase until you find your beneficial level.

This Calculator provides a guideline for dosing. It starts everyone at 2 mg. Remember, It is a guideline. It will also convert your bottle’s MG to MG per drop for you, so you do not have to do the conversion process. It takes out the math. Just plug in your bottle’s MG (per bottle) and the size of the bottle (in ML) and it will calculate the number of drops you need for the recommended dose.

You can always start at lower than 2 mg. Do not start higher, the body needs to acclimate to CBD and a slow process is best. The benefits of CBD comes from waking up your endocannabinoid system in your body and brings it back to homeostasis.  It allows your body to operate at efficient and effective levels by filling in the gaps where necessary. If your endocannabinoid system has been asleep, it’s like a dry sponge and if you dump a ton of water on a dry sponge it just rolls off. If you drip water on it, it will absorb. Therefore slowly drip some CBD so your body can absorb it.

What Causes The Variances?

  • Individual body makeup
  • Deficiencies in the body.
  • Ailments trying to improve (anxiety will use a lower dose than pain management)
  • Severity of ailments (epilepsy will use a different strains and higher dose than depression or insomnia)
  • Natural terpene (the aromas and tastes specific to the hemp plant) mix within each oil and brand.
  • Added terpene mix (if added-other Terpenes strains) within each oil and brand.
  • Sublingually (under the tongue) vs ingested (gummies, tea, coffee, other edibles and capsules). Ingested requires a higher dose because much of the CBD is filtered out through the liver, where as sublingually, the CBD goes directly to the blood stream with no waste.

How Do I Take CBD?

Sublingually– drops placed under the tongue and held for 60 seconds, then swallow.

Capsule – Some companies offer capsules for easy consumption.  You can also purchase empty capsules and fill them with the sublingual drops.  Amazon has capsules if you’re interested in this option.

Edibles – You can make your own edibles or purchase edibles thru a reputable company. Be careful of artificial flavors and coloring. These artificial ingredients can create irritability/aggression and hyperactivity in those that are sensitive.

Vape – The option to vape is available for adults using concentrates like shatter, wax, terpsolates etc,

How do I know if the company is reputable and credible??

When was the company founded? – if the company has less than two years in the industry, you should avoid them.

Is the company an Multi-level-Marketing (MLM) company, if so, completely avoid. – A reputable company does not have to employ their customers to make exaggerated claims and push the product on new customers.

MLM companies have a history of poor customer reviews and subpar products sourced from questionable farms.

The marketing strategy is to sell to an uneducated audience before they have the chance to get educated, and then have them push the product to more uneducated customers.

Another point to consider is MLM companies tend to say they have the best “quality” product, but pay extremely high commissions (up to 85%).  Ask yourself this question.  Is their product a “quality” product if only 15% of the price is allocated to the product (growing, harvesting, bottling, marketing and distribution)?

Known MLM companies are: HempWorx, Club8, Kannaway, My Daily Choice, Green HoriZen, Zilis/Pur 7, Prime My Body, CTFO, Purium.

Lab Reports are essential – If a company can not provide Lab Reports, AVOID!  Lab reports are essential to know what exactly is in the product. Whether it’s oils, tincture, edibles, or concentrates they should have the products independently, third party Lab Tested for purity, potency, terpene content and solvents.
