Recreating Original Synergy
There are multiple types of active principles in hemp (Latin Cannabis sativa) which interact in perfect synergy an entourage: cannabinoids, terpenes/terpenoids and flavanoids. Each strain is made out of a specific combination of some of the 113 known cannabinoids, along with a modulation of some of the 203 identified terpenes/terpenoids (out of the 400+ identified in nature, so far). Since there is a 60% loss of terpenes during the drying process, while terpenes are known to improve the assimilation of cannabinoids by the organism; our terpenes rich hydrodistillation hemp essential oil allow extracts to approach the original symbiotic balance present in the plant in its natural form.
100% Pure & Natural Legal Cannabis Essential Oil
Terpenic essential oils stemming from high-temperature/low-pressure distillations are not to be confused with cannabinoid extracts from water, solvents or high-pressure/low-temperature gaseous extractions, such as BHO, DHO, EHO or supercritical CO2; especially those made from well dried flowers. To schematize, the terpenes in essential oil mostly account for both the fragrances and the aromas; whereas the cannabinoids in extracts have more to do with the different effects on the organism and on the mind (Cf. 7 Differences Chart below). However this does not mean that terpenes are ineffective; quite the opposite indeed...
Terpenes: the Active Principle in Aromatherapy
Indeed, being 100% cannabinoid-free does not mean that cannabis essential oil has no effect on the organism or even on the mind! In aromatherapy, for instance, hemp essential oil is sought after for the numerous properties of its various terpenic combinations. Even though cannabis essential oil is deprived of any cannabinoids which remain inside the plant during the distillation process; its high terpenic content is said to procure users a pleasant subtle effect.
Improvement from Previous Method
The terpenes contained inside hemp essential oil are known to improve the assimilation of CBD and other cannabinoids by the organism. Until now, the best cannabinoid extracts were achieved by adding non-cannabis food grade terpenes to extracts coming the extraction of dried or decaboxylated floral material. So, rather than mixing non-cannabis terpenes and cannabinoids together, or even adding back to them only the 40% of the total amount of original terpenes left after desiccating (drying) before decarboxylation; we systematically call upon the use cannabis terpenes/terpenoids already present inside cannabis essential oil, obtained by the distillation of fresh legal cannabis flowers. The result is an unprecedented 100% cannabis-based terpenes cannabinoid extract, with inner properties approximating, as much as possible, those of the plant in its natural growing state!...
Cannabis Essential Oil + Cannabinoid Extract
= Cannabis Terpenic Cannabinoids Extract
Adding cannabis essential oil (terpenic distillate) to cannabinoid extracts, creates a third type of product known under many different names such as “terpenic cannabinoids extract” or “essential extract”. It is the ultimate expression of the full healing potentiality inside the hemp plant; in the sense that it combines the full range of properties from various terpenes with those from cannabinoids. This opens up the door to a new era for legal cannabis derivatives; for in theory, one can now customize the therapeutic target modulations of a finished product by choosing both the terpenic profile (fragrance) from one specific strain(s) and the combination of cannabinoids (effect) from others.
Improving Cannabinoid Extracts
It is true that cannabinoid extracts lacking sufficient terpenic content are somehow like the crust without the pie! Indeed terpenic cannabinoid extracts, produced adding hemp essential oil to cannabinoid extracts in the right proportion, is the latest improvement in the realm of the most recent innovative applications with hemp derivatives. The synergy among terpenes and cannabinoids preexisting in the plant in its natural state (before drying) allows for a better assimilation of the cannabinoids by the organism.
Ancient Alchemical Knowledge
The principle inherent to terpenic cannabinoid extracts is similar to the science behind the reason why, in numerous areas of the world, people inhale freshly dried hemp. In La Réunion for instance, the local Zamal strain is often cut and just left out to dry on a stone, at the sun just for the day, before combustion. The similarly high terpenic content preserved by such a method is one of the contributing factors at the source of the Zamal original legendary power.
Therefore not only can cannabis essential oil find applications blended with cannabinoid extracts to better both the effects and the fragrance; but it can also serve to make available the original terpenic content to buds which have already been dried for weeks. For instance, eating fresh flowers or the use hemp essential oil are known to effectively help in case of diabetes; whereas the ingestion or combustion of dried hemp does not!
King of Fragrances
Hemp (Latin Cannabis sativa) is also unique because it can exhibit many different fragrances and aromas. Indeed the main terpenes responsible for its aromatic identity are known to originate from a list of sixty, instead of ten for all the other plants. The great terpenic diversity accessible through the hemp genus is such that its essential oils possess the potential to create bouquets of food-grade flavors and fragrances reminiscent of those existing naturally in the mineral, vegetable, animal, and even synthetic realms; but all 100% organic! On top of that cannabis essential oil is considered by many to be anti-allergenic, even if it contains constituents which are themselves registered as allergenic!
A Few Drops Suffice
Only a minimal amount of essential oil needs to be mixed to cannabinoid extracts. As it is the norm within aromatherapy, we recommend that diluted extracts never go beyond 2% essential oil. Essential oil being an hydrocarbon with inflammable properties, its handling shall be conducted by professionals with the proper knowledge and accreditations.
A Variety of Applications
The viscosity of an extract is indicative of the level of its terpenic content. Terpenes rich extracts tend to be more liquid whereas terpenes-poor extracts tend to be more powdery. Therefore it makes sense to add cannabis essential oil to any extract which was not made from fresh flowers; since it improves the assimilation of cannabinoids by the organism while contributing to liquefy the texture at the same time. As further illustration of the potential of our hemp essential oil: one drop used with a Volcano vaporizer can fill up to five balloons! But it does stop here: hemp essential oil also serves to give food and drinks the taste and flavor of herb (three drops per liter suffice). The possibilities are almost endless, so please refer to the List of Hemp Essential Oil Facts document below, for further suggestions on the different ways of using it safely.
