Morcheaba Full List of Cannabis Hemp CBD, Cannabinoids, Terpenes and Flavonoids.

CBD, THC and Cannabinoids.

What is CBD? Cannabinoids can be found in many plants such as Coneflower, Daisy, Black Pepper and even… Chocolate. In terms of hemp or cannabis, the most widely described elements include CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC effects the CB1 brain receptor associated with the feeling of euphoric high. THC from a cannabis plant is only legal in certain states. Hemp plants can be either male or female, with the male plants containing far more cannabinoids and the females generally containing more THC. The latter is commonly referred to as Marijuana, a term the government created to sneak legislation through in the 1930’s. These plants contain a high percentage of THC while the CBD components are very low. THC is being widely studied for a variety of medicinal applications.

While the hemp plant is also in the cannabis species, industrial hemp produces high concentrations of CBDs, yet only traces of non-psychoactive THC. For this story we will be describing the cannabinoids most often found in broad spectrum hemp extract oils.

What Does the Term “Broad Spectrum Cannabinoid Extract” .vs “CBD Oil” Refer To?

Imagine comparing an apple .vs a freshly baked apple pie. While an apple is natural and great on its own, an apple pie consists of apples along with an entire recipe of ingredients blended together to create a delightful apple pie. This analogy portrays the most abundantly extracted cannabinoid, CBD (Cannabidiol) isolate .vs a true broad spectrum cannabinoid extract oil blend which includes other possible cannabinoids. Broad spectrum extracts along with terpenes and flavonoid components below can create an entourage effect. When shopping for broad spectrum CBD oil blends, we suggest locating a product with substantial amounts of other cannabinoids beyond 0.1- 0.9 trace amounts.

How Many Cannabinoids Exist?

When people pose the question; What is CBD? they are often under the impression that there is only one cannabinoid, CBD. While the cannabinoid known as CBD is the most abundant of the list, there are others which working best together in harmony. Some studies report as may as 114 cannabinoids in hemp. Each of these are being studied for their own individual and combined wellness effects on the human endocannabinoid system. The most plentiful studied cannabinoids in broad spectrum extracts most often refer to:

What are Terpenes and Flavonoids?

The fragrance and flavor of any plant nutrient is delivered to the senses via terpenes and flavonoids. These naturally occurring rich aromatic molecular components are what make a rose smell like a rose. Phytonutrients work in perfect harmony and balance with cannabinoids described above.

Terpenes and flavonoids are what attracts insects for pollination or warn organisms to stay away as protection. Terpenes compromise the largest components of essential oils and are often used for wellness. As example, lavender oils have long been regarding to produce a calming tranquil effect.

There are over 100 terpenes in the cannabis family of plants. Individual terpenes can vary depending on concentrations and plant strains. Limonene terpenes can be flavored like an orange or a lemon, depending on the type and concentration of Limonene in the plant. In regards to hemp extract oils, some products are purposely extracted to include these perfectly produced natural flavors.

Some of the Most Prominent Terpenes We Include:

• BISABOLOL

• CAMPHENE

• CAROPHYLLENE

• HUMULENE

• LIMONENE

• LINALOOL

• MYRCENE

• NEROLIDOL

• OCIMENE

• PINENES

Terpenes work well together with cannabinoids in regulating and balancing many aspects of the endocannabinoid system. In summary, we embrace our Broad Spectrum hemp extract oils. Naturally flavored and blended to perfection by mother nature.
