How Terpenes Affect the Experience

At Elevated Trading, we’re in conversations with retailers across the country every day. It’s not surprising that we get to learn a lot about the different CBD markets and how consumers are educating themselves when it comes to high quality smokable flower options. Increasingly, retailers and consumers alike are realizing it’s not all about the CBD percentage, but how big of an impact terpenes make on the overall experience.

Variations in terpene strains and content significantly alter the physiological effects that hemp has on a user. What does this mean? Terpenes enhance the benefits of CBD hemp via the endocannabinoid system. When combined with CBD, terpene blends create a more balanced and pleasant experience and encourage users to be more focused, have more energy, or be calmer.

Elevated tip: If your local CBD retail shop is only touting the “high CBD percentage”, but not talking about the different terpenes present in the flower, you’re only receiving part of the story. Elevate your knowledge around terpenes and expect more from your local retail shop.
