What are Terpenes?

Hello from the team at Canna-Oils.

Here’s more helpful information for you.

BCP Oil is a terpene – so what exactly is that?

“Terpene” comes from the word “turpentine”, which is a fluid resulting from distilled resin from living trees.

Terpene itself is the name of a group of compounds that cover plants as a defence mechanism against herbivores and to attract pollinators.

Beta-caryophyllene or BCP, is a terpene found in culinary herbs such as oregano, cloves, hops, and rosemary, and in the cannabis plant.

It is what gives these plants their pungent odour and spicy flavor.

BCP is a food additive as well as a recognised dietary cannabinoid.

The terpene is already in many foods you eat every day like black pepper, cinnamon and oregano.

It is commercially used as an additive to not only foods, but also cosmetics due to its mild aromatics.

Terpenes, like cannabinoids, have their own therapeutic qualities that are just as far-spread.

They, too, can fight against inflammation, anxiety, nausea, seizures and much more.

Beta-caryophyllene is the only terpene, which also functions as a cannabinoid by binding to the cannabinoid receptor two (CB2) in the body.We would love to hear how our products have been helping you on your wellness journey.
