Today’s Cannabis Unknown is another edition in our Terpene Series. This time featuring my favorite terpene, Limonene. But before we get started, I’ve got to read you our top ten list of things that go better with limonene.
10) Cleaning your house,; 9)attracting a mate; 8) mating with that mate; 7) chips, 6) Snickers; 5) Halo; 4) kayaking; 3) not kayaking; 2) coffee, and the number one thing made better with limonene, Wake and Bake.
As I said, today’s topic is limonene. Now limonene is a terpene. Terpenes are chemicals secreted by the tricomes, the little hairy guys on the cannabis plant. Terpenes were originally thought to be a defense mechanism for plant life, but terpenes and limonene aren’t just confined to cannabis. They show up everywhere in nature and in things not so natural. Like cleansers that leave your house smelling lemony fresh and perfumes that make your significant other feel like they are reliving the tropical vacation you took years ago.
So, yes, as you probably deduced, limonene is related to lemons. Like the twist you put in your martini or the orange rind in your beer. The gum you chew and the soap you used when you shower. But limonene is far more than just an aroma. It has amazing benefits for the body as well. Limonene is typically associated with pick-me-up sativas. In fact, how much limonene a strain has is one of the indicators whether it’s a sativa or an indica or a hybrid.
Limonene relieves anxiety and stress. It’s inspirational. It’s also known to reduce and even cure some forms of cancer. It may help boost your immune system and limonene fights depression, relieves pain, and even dissolves gall stones. Go figure. Limonene may help with metabolism, the digestive system, reduce heartburn, enhance wound recovery, and may even help with your eyesight, which is good, because I got to read you a list of strains that limonene makes better. Hang on a second here. (insert bong sound, here)
Super Lemon Haze,
Jack Herer, and even some indicas like
All right, that’s it for the limonene edition of our Terpene Series of Cannabis Unknown. Stay tuned, because I’m in the middle of subjecting myself to yet another CBD regimen, but this time adding my 82 year old mother to the mix to see if the CBD medical claims can stand the spotlight.
I’ll have results coming up. For Cannabis Unknown, I’m Scojo the Herb Advisor.
Power to the flower.
