Terpene Myrcene

A mindful blend of terpenes – the secret ingredient to effective relief.

 At Brady’s Botanicals, we want to give you the exact wellness benefit you’re after. That’s why in this blog, we’re going to take a deep dive into cannabis terpenes and the unique power they hold over curating better health outcomes. 

So, What Are Terpenes?

Terpenes are completely natural compounds found in plants. Their job is to influence cannabis products to work better for you long-term. One of the most efficacious methods to get your daily dose of beneficial terpenes is by inhaling (think aromatherapy) or smoking or vaping cannabis products. Terpenes are in cannabis plants at high levels, which is just one reason why the terpenes in cannabis work so well. 

Terpenes are extremely valuable when it comes to cannabis therapy. We can isolate certain terpenes and add them to products. We can also control the temperature when using products, so we get each terpene’s full value without degrading them.  

8 Beneficial Cannabis-Derived Terpenes

Within the cannabis plant, there are over 400 different kinds of terpenes. Let’s go over the most popular terpenes our clients love at Brady’s Botanicals.
