You are probably familiar with cannabinoids like THC and CBD – but do you know about Cannabis Terpenes?
Terpenes are chemicals found in cannabis that not only give the plant its taste and aroma, and also deliver some therapeutic effects.
There are over 20,000 terpenes in nature, with more than 200 identified as cannabis terpenes (not found exclusively within cannabis, but found in the cannabis plants). It is worth noting that the terpenes in cannabis vary from strain to strain.
Medicinal Cannabis, THC, CBD and Asthma
Medicinal Cannabis is being used to treat a whole range of medical conditions, one of them being asthma.
As counterintuitive as it sounds vaping or even smoking some strains of cannabis has been shown to help relieve asthma symptoms in patients. Whilst this information is nothing new, we wanted to share the beneficial effects of medical cannabis for asthma sufferers.
Comedian and actress Whoopi Goldberg is the latest celebrity to endorse and invest in Medical Marijuana in the US.
Inspired by her own lifetime of difficult periods, Goldberg has teamed up with founder of Om Edibles, Maya Elisabeth, to create a line of Medical Marijuana products aimed at helping women treat menstrual pain.
We have written extensively about the uses and benefits of the wonderful hemp plant here in the past on ISMOKE, but did you know about Hempcrete?
Hempcrete is similar to concrete but made from the cannabis plant mixed with limestone, making a durable substance that can be an alternative to traditional concrete – it’s consistency is different to concrete when wet, but it drys into a stable material capable of holding up houses.
So could this be the building material of the future?
We will be back with another roundup next week. Keep toking!
