Therapeutic Terpenes List: Their Many Effects and Benefits

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are a diverse and complex group of compounds that occur abundantly in a variety of plants and even some insects. These small molecules pack a potent punch and are the source of the aromatic and flavor characteristics specific to the botanicals and herbs in which they exist. In nature, terpenes have evolved to help plant species protect themselves from predators attempting to eat them and also to attract pollinators – both critical to survival. 

Natural therapy

lab effects therapeutic terpenes natural cancer researchTerpenes provide a distinct advantage for the plants in which they are derived. The same properties within these mighty metabolites that help to protect and propagate them in forests, fields, and jungles all over the world are proving to be of great benefit to humans as well. In fact, humans have been harnessing the therapeutic properties of terpenes for thousands of years. We just haven’t always known that the plant remedies that aid health and wellness are in large part due to the varied effects terpenes can have on the human body.

Recent scientific studies are beginning to uncover the effects of isolated terpenes. Traditional herbal remedies such as mint helping an upset stomach or the calming effects of lavender are now known to be a direct result of the terpenes, or terpene blends, found within these plants. And a better understanding of the power of terpenes is leading to the possibilities of cutting-edge treatments being developed to assist serious conditions such as Alzheimer’s and certain types of cancer

Botanical terpenes are best

lab effects what are terpenes

Cannabis-derived terpenes have been receiving much attention lately but there are several key benefits associated with terpenes derived from other botanical sources. Botanically sourced terpenes are more cost-effective and readily available in bulk. This, in addition to a cheaper extraction process, reduces the sourcing costs and allows for increased profit potential. 

Botanical terpenes possess the same properties as cannabis terpenes, but offer a more beneficial therapeutic value, as they can be standardized. Cannabis-derived terpenes are not controlled and can present competing therapeutic values, making them unreliable for therapeutic applications. 

Clarification on the efficacy of botanical vs. cannabis terpenes: Rumors and misinformation have made some believe that cannabis terpenes are more efficacious in producing the entourage effect in the body. This is not true. While using cannabis-derived terpenes have their own unique benefits and purposes, they aren’t more effective than using botanical terpenes. In fact, when formulating for therapeutic results, the opposite is true.
