CBD can help enhance your mood but did you know that you can actually customize your mood by adding one simple biohack to your CBD routine?
The ability to curate specific moods with CBD comes from a plant compound called terpenes, and the way you activate them is by combining the power of aromatherapy with the most bioavailable form of CBD oil on the market. It’s possible to customize your mood with CBD thanks to Ojai Energetics’ patented encapsulation technology that allows terpenes and cannabinoids to interact inside the human body. This is not possible with regular fat-based edible formulations.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are organic compounds that give plants their unique smell. You know the soft, floral smell of lavender due to the terpene linalool. Lemon owes its vibrant, refreshing scent to the terpene limonene.
Cannabis has a variety of terpenes—hundreds, in fact—that vary depending on the strain and its climate, maturation, soil, fertilizer, and more. The way terpenes interact with cannabinoids is unique in that when CBD is consumed, inhaled terpenes can then influence where the cannabinoids go inside the body.
The trouble is, the way most CBD oil is processed results in much of it being broken down in the digestive system. If you consume 20 mg of regular CBD oil, only a small portion—2mg—is available for use inside your body. That 10% of the CBD that’s left is only available about 30 minutes after ingestion, once the acids in your stomach and your liver have had their way with it. Terpenes are even less bioavailable than cannabinoids when eaten. Due to this lag time and decreased efficiency using fat based CBD oils, you’re unable to time the ingestion and inhalation to achieve this mood-customizing effect.
The power of terpenes and cannabinoids used to only be activated by vaporization or the combustion of cannabis. Edibles and tinctures traditionally missed out on this effect. Now with our patented technology, you can enjoy the benefits of terpenes with cannabinoids without needing to vaporize or smoke them; on-demand!
This is just one of the ways in which Ojai Energetics Full-Spectrum Hemp Elixir is different because its 100% certified organic, water-soluble technology gets into the bloodstream quickly and skips the entire digestive process.
How can you use terpenes to customize a mood?
Like cannabinoids, terpenes are not easily digested. The best way to use terpenes is to inhale them.
Ojai Energetics’ patented technology and proprietary method of producing full-spectrum CBD solves for the body’s inability to absorb fat molecules by encapsulating CBD in water for immediate absorption. Even better, this technology causes the cannabinoid receptors in the tongue to modulate and change the flavor of the CBD from bitter to sweet when you’ve had just the right dose.
That means that with Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil, the CBD activates immediately. With our patented technology, you can now activate the power of terpenes with edibles by simply taking the elixir and then smelling essential oils to custom curate effects on demand.
Try These 4 Terpenes + Full-Spectrum CBD Oil to Customize a Mood
Use this method for each of the terpenes to create specific moods:
- Situate yourself in an area conducive to the mood you are trying to achieve, free of distraction.
- Take a couple of drops at a time of Full-Spectrum Hemp Elixir under your tongue and swish around, then swallow, until it tastes sweet.
- Deeply inhale the essential oil immediately after the CBD consumption.
Try one of these per day and reap the benefits of relaxation, memory enhancement, stress support, and sleep support.
1. Linalool for Relaxation
Found in lavender, linalool is great for inducing relaxation without fatigue. Sniff a lavender essential oil or even a lavender plant after taking Ojai Energetics CBD oil and you’ll essentially tell your endocannabinoid system that you’re ready for some serious chill time.
2. Pinene for Memory
Pinene is a piney, earthy terpene found in rosemary, basil, and sage. When combined with CBD oil, pinene can spur creativity and help you feel more alert and energetic. Get those creative juices flowing with the scent of rosemary oil inhaled over top of ingesting your water-soluble CBD oil.
3. Limonene for Stress Support
Lemons and citrus scents hint at sunny days and happiness ahead. Limonene is found in citrus fruit, juniper, and peppermint and when combined with CBD can bring on an elevated mood. Take a deep smell of lemon essential oil once you’ve achieved the right dose of CBD oil (remember, you’ll know by the sweet taste!) to curate a positive outlook.
4. Myrcene for Sleep Preparation
Want to create a relaxing mood as part of your nighttime routine? Myrcene is a terpene found in hops, lemongrass, mango and thyme that gives off a musky, earthy aroma. Hops essential oil can help you achieve a ready-for-bedtime mood and is even better complemented with lemongrass.
