All You Need to Know About Terpenes in My Hood Cannabis – The Basics

My Hood Cannabis products are composed of various terpenes responsible for giving them a unique flavor and aroma profile. Common terpenes include pinene, myrcene, and limonene. Some of these compounds have powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

Have you ever tried the same strain of cannabis from My Hood only to wonder why its smell and taste aren’t always consistent? Don’t get us wrong, it still feels amazing – but it’s just not the same experience. The answer boils down to the terpene composition of weed products.

According to My Hood, Terpenes are secreted by the resin glands of cannabis plants and provide them with a defense mechanism against predators. This compound is responsible for giving marijuana its very unique aroma and flavor profile. It can be found in just about every other plant, including citrus, pines, and berries.

Several factors affect the terpene levels of weed, including:

  • Climate
  • Harvest Time
  • Soil Type
  • Level of maturation

Different Types of Terpenes Found in Weed and Their Effects

i) Myrcene

Myrcene is abundantly found in cannabis. Its earthy and musky scent is comparable to cloves. Apart from weed, you’ll find myrcene in eucalyptus, citrus fruits, and lemongrass. Myrcene works in synergy with THC to provide potent anti-inflammatory and sedative effects.

ii) Pinene

Pinene has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can combat the short-term memory impairment often associated with THC use. As its name suggests, pinene has a distinct pine-like scent that you can find in citrus fruits. It is worth noting that pine reacts with other active ingredients for a powerful entourage effect.

iii) Limonene

Limonene is commonly found in limes, lemons, oranges, and other citrus fruits. It reacts well with the body and reaches the bloodstream more efficiently. Some studies show that it can reduce appetite and helps with weight loss. So if you’re looking for cannabis strains that can help you with weight loss, look for ones with high limonene content.

  1. iv) Caryophyllene

Caryophyllene can be found in cinnamon leaves, black pepper, and lavender. Researchers are studying the compound to see if its powerful anti-inflammatory properties can help with cancer.  This makes it one of the best terpenes for cannabis consumers.

How to Maintain the Integrity of Cannabis Terpenes

Learn to store your cannabis the proper way to keep the compounds fresh and flavorful for a long time to come. As a rule by My Hood, you should store your weed in an air-tight container kept in a dry, dark place. Various factors such as humidity, lighting, and temperature can degrade the quality of terpenes and, with it, the flavor profile of your cannabis flower.

My Hood Canabis Education: Is THC Safe for Dogs?

Long story short, yes, THC from My Hood is generally considered safe for dogs. It comes with a long list of effective properties and is gaining more traction with each passing day. As with any effective treatment, it is important to take stock of all the ‘side’ effects that come with the promises.

When the THC interacts with our endocannabinoids system, it can cause a strong euphoric effect that we refer to as ‘high’ or ‘getting stoned’. Pets are prone to the same experiences because, like humans, they too have an endocannabinoid system. And that’s where things start to get a bit unsafe – because how can you decide if your furry friend is getting ‘too high’?

The Purported Health Benefits of THC Are Many

THC has a long list of health benefits and the side effect profile of the compound is relatively safe – but they do exist. Some of the health benefits My Hood provides include:

Pain relief: a growing body of research shows that THC can provide pain relief because of how it interacts with the endocannabinoid system. The compound is very effective for treating painful and often chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis.

Appetite Management: this compound can be used to help people suffering from eating disorders such as loss of appetite due to due to preexisting medical conditions.

Neuroprotection: this may sound a bit woozy to the readers but studies show that THC can protect brain cells. Some experts go as far as to suggest that THC may help with neurogenesis (forming new neurons in the brain) and could treat chronic and progressive conditions like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and others.

But Should You Give THC to Your Dog?

We would recommend that you start with extremely minuscule doses under the supervision of your veterinarian. This is because dogs may be sensitive to some of the side effects of THC and may have trouble with walking, opening their eyes, and twitching.  

If you do want to give THC to your dog, make sure it is a high-quality product, such as the ones at My Hood.
