Celebrating renowned neuroscientist, Ethan Russo and this in-depth chat with Shango Los. On this episode of Shaping Fire, Shango explores using terpenes, either individually or in synergy with cannabinoids to help relieve stress and pain. Russo and Shango discuss how Terpenes interact with the body and the endocannabinoid system. Different methods of consumption are discussed, including methods you might not suspect!
They continue to discuss terpenes such as beta-caryophyllene that are typically used in topicals, as well as terpenes such as alpha-pinene, known to be a bronchodilator (a key feature in “forest bathing” by the way). How just minute amounts of these compounds can have a profound effect on flavor, aroma, and effect.
