Terpenes | Australia | BCP Oil
Terpenes are organic hydrocarbon molecules in the form of oil. Consuming some terpenes can have therapeutics affects on how a person feels and how their body functions. In the Medical Marijuana industry, terpenes are at the cutting edge of new research and applications (1).
There are 6 major terpenes found in Cannabis:
- Beta-Caryophyllene (BCP)
However, because terpenes are the most basic form of oil produced in nature, over 20,000 different types have been identified. Most forms of life on Earth produce some terpenes naturally, to implement biological functions that produce pheromones, hormones and vitamins.
Papilio Therapeutics Terpenes 100% Natural, 100% Organic. Our terpenes also comply with TGA requirements. Our terpenes are synergised in a liposomal ingredients matrix, consisting of the Nobel Prize Winning C60 molecule and Organic Hemp Seed Oil, to optimise their delivery to the endocannabinoid system.
How do they work?
Terpenes help establish homeostasis within the body, by binding to receptors in the brain and harmonising with the body’s endocannabinoid system. Simply, terpenes are fundamental to establishing a ‘healthy balance’ within the body. Each terpene has its own scent, flavour and therapeutic effects, however, some terpenes bind to the same receptors as others, meaning a crossover of benefits can occur between compounds. Terpenes also synergise well together and are often combined to increase their effectiveness. Furthermore, through a process known as the “Entourage Effect”, terpenes can also increase the therapeutic benefits of cannabis.
The Endocannabionoid System (ECS)
The ECS is the largest neurotransmission system in the human body. The ECS was identified in the early 1990s by researchers exploring THC, a well-known cannabinoid. The ECS plays a vital role in the regulation of various aspects of human function, including:
- reproductive systems
- digestive systems
- motor control
- pain and pleasure
- immune function
- memory and cognitive function
