What Are Benefits of Essential Oils on Skin?
When used topically, essential oils can help treat a number of ailments, such as dry skin, oily skin, sensitive skin, and can even help treat acne-prone skin. However, when these essential oils are combined with CBD, they take on a whole new host of benefits. One of the many reasons for these increased benefits is due to an element found in the hemp plant, where CBD oil is derived, called terpenes.
What Are Terpenes?
Terpenes are a compound found in many plants and they help to give these plants their distinctive aromas. Plants naturally produce terpenes to either deter predators or to attract pollinators. This may be the first time you are hearing about them, so you might be surprised to find out that they are all around you. Think of the distinct crisp smell of pine needles or the fresh aroma of an orange peel. You are smelling the terpenes in these plants and fruits. These terpenes are also found in hemp, and with over 200 distinct CBD terpenes, hemp happens to be one of the most terpene-rich plants in the world. This is reason for different variations of smell and flavor among different strands. If we were to compare cannabis to wine, terpenes would be the variation in flavors or notes you would get in each bottle.
What Are the Benefits of Terpenes?
Not only does these compounds smell nice, but they also offer a wide array of health benefits as well. Cannabis terpenes can help enhance and increase the therapeutic effects of CBD and your body’s overall absorption rate of CBD. This is one of the reasons for its many medicinal properties. Terpenes are also an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties, which can help mitigate the effects of aging and help manage they symptoms of chronic skin conditions.
