Are Terpene Infused Vape E-Liquids the New Craze?

Vaporizing has been the preferred consumption method of choice for many cannabis fans for a few years now. But a new form of vape is starting to pop across, and that’s vaping e-liquids infused with terpenes. So just what is this craze all about with a terpene in e-liquids? And why are so many diehard cannabis fans turning to these vapes that are full of CBD?


What are terpenes?

Terpenes are the essential oils that give cannabis its characteristic taste and aroma. These oils come out through the sticky resinous glands of the buds. The flowers so many smoke, vape, and otherwise consume in order to get the high. Or for the medicinal benefits cannabis has become known for. But cannabis is not the only plant that is known for excreting terpenes; many other plants, fruits, and herbs do as well. And while there are hundreds of terpenes in cannabis, the plant is known mainly for  seven types. These incluce: myrcene, limonene, alpha-pinene, eucalyptol, linalool, caryophyllene, and borneol.

While these terpenes are what give the Blueberry strain its sweet smell, they’re good for a number of other things as well. Terpenes don’t only provide medicinal benefits on their own; they also work together with CBD. This is what many in the industry call ‘the entourage effect’ where one part of the plant works to help boost the other.

While many have known for some time that cannabis can help with many health ailments and conditions, research is now being done demonstrating how terpenes affect the way the brain receives and interacts with cannabinoids like CBD.

For example, in 2011 a report was published in the British Journal of Pharmacology that discussed how terpenes typically do not show up in products that only contain CBD. And by adding these extracts to CBD, many people can reap even more therapeutic benefits. One terpene studied was beta-caryophyllene, which can be found in the essential oils of black pepper, oregano and also in many cannabis strains. This terpene helps the gastro-intestinal tract by treating ulcers, helping with inflammatory conditions and auto-immune disorders. This is because it binds directly to the peripheral cannabinoid receptor known as CB2. While CBD will show some of these effects on its own, terpenes help with the job make those benefits even fuller and much more prominent in the user.

Terpenes can help in a number of ways all on their own, including regulating sleep, improving appetite, mood, immune system, pain relief, and even increasing memory. It’s important to note that just like all strains of cannabis will not cure or help with all ailments, there are also certain terpenes that are better suited for some ailments and health conditions than others.

Terpenes are also known to be able to help cannabinoids such as THC and CBD better break through the blood-brain barrier. It helps more THC pass through that barrier, which is good for those that vape oil have some form of THC content. And while the benefit of these terpenes is present on its own, it can be difficult to get them all while smoking, as some are inevitably burned away. But, when they’re adding to a concentrate such as CBD oil, that oil does double duty – providing relief from the CBD for the user, and providing relief through terpenes.

Green Roads is one of the suppliers in the United States currently capitalizing on this new research and providing users with terpene-infused CBD oil. By experimenting with different terpenes and CBD oil, Green Roads is now able to create solutions that give patients maximum relief. The same way CBD helps patients, terpenes are also all-natural. Which makes them a much better option than many of the pharmaceutical options, offered to patients suffering from a number of conditions. But one of the biggest reasons vape connoisseurs loves terpenes so much is because of the powerful aroma and taste they provide.

For example, CBD oil can be infused with terpenes from Sour Diesel, so users can still get that gassy, fuel-like taste and smell while actually helping their symptoms. And getting very little of the psychoactive ingredients. Because terpenes are most often infused into CBD oil, people don’t have to sacrifice things like taste and smell while simply trying to help their symptoms.

Terpene-infused vape e-liquids are certainly showing up on vape scenes everywhere these days, and it’s not a trend that’s going to slow down any time soon. With so many health benefits, as well as a taste and smell so characteristic of cannabis, it’s not hard to understand why companies and researchers everywhere would start combining the powerful health effects of CBD with those of terpenes. With both having healing and restorative properties, the only question is why no one has thought of combining the two before now.
