ok my fellow peeps here we go. I will make this short as possible just to get the ball rolling. I have a theory about terpenes. I'm not just making this up. I have ran 12 different strains and helped others with a couple more. Trying to figure out why strains with similar THC and CBD profiles affect you differently and how cannabis is medically beneficial. I researched everything the web has. Everyone says it is the THCs or CBDs and finally some think there might be correlation with terpenes. Upon reading this I had an idea that the terps actually are the directors to point the cbds and thcs in the direction you need them to work. Like I said this is all theory and needs further research. The reason I think this is some strains that react differently to your system have close to same thc and cbd profile have different terps. I started studying original landraces and found they actually smelled and tasted like the indigenous plants fund in the region they grew. I also found that terpenes not only have the smell and flavor but they are also used in medicine since the beginning of time. The terps in cannabis have matching terps in nature found in the essential oils of certain plants. To make a long story short. I thought maybe I can increase the terps in my cannabis and make it more affective. It would beat eating mangoes every time you smoke or rubbing your self with lemon grass. So I ran a few tests and found you can increase the smell and flavor with the right oils or completely screw it up. I found that you can match the terpene profile of your strain with the terps in nature and get a better smelling and tasting plant by adding a few drops of the correct oils to your water during flower. It was just highly expensive to do this and you manipulated what the plant actually tasted like. To find a way to make it more economical I devised a spray with purified water and a few drops of essential oils commonly found in sativa strains in a spray bottle and misted the air. To my surprise this made every strain smell like the breeder described every seed grown. Wow no more looking for that elusive smelling and tasting pheno. So if this works with smell and flavor it should work to increase the medical aspect of your plant. Charlottes Web a well known strain used to fight seizures is low in thc high in CBD and high in Linalool. Linalool has an anti seizure affect. Could the correlation be that the thc cbd and terpenes work together to create a common goal. Orange oil is also high in linalool If you added that to your water would you increase the Linalool even higher? Would it make a better medicine that is more affective, so you could use less and get the same results? If so then you could match terps to medical and terps in cannabis and make sure your meds are what you need. The implications are endless. you could personally make sure your cannabis works for you. If this is possible BIG PHARMA will have a serious competitor.
