“Kusakai Enjoying CBD and Herbs” Event Report
On 11/28 ( Sun ) , GReEN's first class-style event was held with herbalist Alysa as a lecturer.
The event was designed to allow CBD users to deepen their knowledge of the correlation between CBD and herbs.
Also, some of the participants had never used CBD , but after the event, they seemed to be interested in CBD as well.
I think that it was easy for so-called “CBD beginners” who had never used CBD to participate because it was an event that mainly focused on herbs.
[This time the participants were only women! ]
The course started while drinking herbal tea blended mainly with herbs that are said to be compatible with CBD .
After learning the basic knowledge about herbs, we learned the characteristics of each of the 15 types of herbs while actually testing their scents.
The participants put a check mark on the herb that they thought had a good scent, and tested the scent. It seems that the herbs that smell good are likely to be the herbs that your body needs at that time.
At the end of the event, participants made original blended herbs based on the contents of the course, made herbal teas, and enjoyed a social gathering while inhaling them as joints.
If you're a CBD user, you may have heard that combining cannabinoids found in hemp other than CBD can have a synergistic effect.
In addition to cannabinoids, terpenes, which are natural fragrance ingredients, are said to have a synergistic effect with CBD . It is also said to be the source of essential oils, and aromatherapy is based on this terpene.
Hemp contains over 100 different terpenes, which are found in a wide variety of other plants , including fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, and more, and have been declared basic by the Food and Drug Administration. recognized as safe to eat.
Herbs are characterized by containing each of these terpenes, as well as many nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. It seems that when you make herbal tea, you can easily ingest water-soluble nutrients.
In terms of synergy with CBD , the “terpenes” contained in this herb play a big role. In addition, many of the terpenes contained in cannabis plants are the same as the terpenes contained in herbs, so by blending CBD and herbal terpenes, it is possible to reproduce the effects similar to the original effects of cannabis plants. that's right.
Typical terpenes found in herbs and cannabis plants are:
・α- pinene ・β-pinene Pine - like scent
It has bronchodilating properties and is said to be useful for asthma patients. It also enhances its effects by inhibiting the metabolism of neurotransmitters in the brain that promote cognitive actions such as alertness and memory maintenance.
・ Myrcene ••• Citrus-like scent
It is said to have sedative, muscle relaxant, hypnotic, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory properties.
・Limonene ••• Refreshing citrus scent
It has long been used in medicine to dissolve gallstones, improve mood, and relieve symptoms of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux. Limonene has an anticonvulsant effect, destroyed breast cancer cells in basic experiments, and has a strong antibacterial effect, killing pathogenic bacteria.
・Linalool ••• Fragrance contained in lavender
It has an anti-anxiety effect, counteracts anxiety and reduces stress. In addition, linalool has potent anticonvulsant properties and potentiates serotonin receptor signaling to exert antidepressant effects.
・β- Caryophyllene Pungent , spice-like aroma
It is the only terpene known to bind directly to the cannabinoid receptor CB2 in the body. It shows promise in treating inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
・Humulene ••• Woody, earthy scent
It is said to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and analgesic properties. It is also effective in suppressing appetite.
