The Cannabis Sativa L. plant originates from Central Asia and has been used in folk medicine for thousands of years. Despite the abundant anecdotal evidence regarding the plant's healing properties, there is still much to be discovered scientifically. So far, 113 cannabinoids have been identified, with Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD) being the most well-known. There is also growing interest in cannabinol (CBN), Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabichrome (CBC), and Cannabivarin (CBDV). These elements, either individually or in combination, can be part of a broad Spectrum CBD oil. Yet there are more points to consider when it comes to what makes a CBD oil broad spectrum . The hemp plant also consists of many other compounds such as flavonoids, fatty acids and terpenes. Even vitamin K is found in small amounts in our extracts. To optimally contribute to restoring your balance, these elements are essential for a broad spectrum CBD oil.
In the search for 100% natural healing products, terpenes are also receiving more scientific attention recently. But what exactly are these aromatic substances and why do they belong in the broad spectrum CBD oil from OCHO Amsterdam?
Terpenes are a category of natural compounds and are found in many living organisms. They are the main constituent of essential oils in plants with therapeutic benefits. In the hemp plant, terpenes, together with cannabinoids and flavonoids, are formed in the trichomes of the hemp buds. This sticky layer protects the plant against UV radiation and offers protection against harmful bacteria, fungi and other pests. In everyday life we recognize terpenes mainly by their often attractive scents. Think of the unique aromas of lemon, orange, lavender and hemp plants, these are thanks to terpenes.
Scientific research has made it clear that terpenes in combination with cannabinoids can interact with physiological processes and therefore with the functioning of the human body (Russo, 2011).
To optimally use the power of nature, OCHO Amsterdam only uses 100% natural ingredients and we combine all the goodness of the hemp plant into a real CBD oil broad Spectrum. OCHO Amsterdam not only distinguishes itself by adding extra terpenes, but also guarantees 0.0% THC.
You can purchase OCHO Amsterdam broad-spectrum CBD oil in the categories of Energize, Sports, Relax, and Remedies. In the overview below, you will find explanations of the possible effects of the terpenes and in which of our broad spectrum CBD oil they can be found.
Limonene: A terpene that is widely used in perfumes and cosmetics. As the name suggests, it provides a lime-like aroma. This terpene is mainly found in citrus fruit, but is also present in the hemp plant. Limonene exhibits anxiety reducing properties and stimulates the immune system (Komori et al., 19951).
Myrcene: The most prominent terpene in hemp plants . This is responsible for the strong hop aroma that dry hopped beers have. This terpene can also be found in sage, wild thyme and bay leaf. Myrcene is recognized as an anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving and anxiety-reducing (Cleemput et al., 20092).
Alpha-Pinene: Is mainly recognizable by the pine scent, it is therefore found in conifers, eucalyptus and rosemary. Alpha-Pinene is one of the most common mounds along with Limonene. Alpha-Pinene is an acetylcholine esterase (enzyme that breaks down neurotransmitters) inhibitor and can therefore support memory capacity (Kennedy et al., 20113),
LinaloolThe floral aroma of Linalool is quickly recognizable and is mainly found in lavender. Linalool is also found in mint, cinnamon and some citrus fruits. The properties of Linalool are described as analgesic, anti-inflammatory and sedative (Russo, 20114 )
Beta-Caryophyllene: Has a spicy, woody and sweet scent. It is mainly found in cloves, oregano and basil. Beta-Caryophyllene has anti-inflammatory and gastro-protective properties (Singh and Sharma, 20155)
