CBD is becoming increasingly popular in medical and therapeutic communities and terpenes are finally having their moment in the sun, as well. Read on to find out more about the benefits of mixing your CBD with terpenes.
Vaporized Oil May Be Less Harsh
Smoking can be an irritant to the lungs and may cause major problems no matter what you’re smoking. While vaping can still have an impact on the lungs, it may be less harsh than smoking. Since the oils are vaporized, they may be easier for the lungs to handle and may not provide as many negative side effects as inhaling smoke. Adding terpenes to your CBD routine can make the experience even more pleasant. The terpenes release specific smells that you can use for aromatherapeutic effects and they have therapeutic benefits, as well.
Target Specific Issues
CBD is able to help with a variety of issues, and adding terpenes can make it even easier to get more benefits for specific problems you’re having. The organic compounds that make up terpenes have an impact on the way your brain uses the cannabinoids and can enhance the experience while directly helping you feel better in different areas.
Choosing mood-boosting terpenes and ones that are meant to calm you may make using CBD even more successful. Invigorating terpenes and other options may have similar results.
Easier Dosing Options
If you are being treated with CBD for a variety of conditions, it can sometimes be hard to know if you are getting the right dose. CBD dosing can be tricky, but vaping it allows you to ingest small amounts of CBD at a time and increase your dose as necessary.
Since vaping can make getting the right dose easier, the CBD may be able to better target the cannabinoid receptors that make the CBD more effective. Combining CBD and terpenes allows you to get all the benefits of the CBD as well as the benefits that come from the organic compounds in the terpenes.

A Better Experience
Terpenes can help change the taste and odor of CBD. While the flavor of CBD can usually be covered up when you take it as gummies or in a capsule, it’s harder to hide the flavor when you’re vaping it. Adding natural terpenes to your vape liquid can make the CBD taste and smell better. Terpenes are a natural and easy way to make vaping more pleasant.
Easier to Find the Right Equipment
Finding the right way to consume CBD mostly comes down to personal preference and what works best for you. Trying out something like a vape pen is a great way to enjoy the experience and can help you have a better time while you are consuming it. Vape pens are easy to try out and are a quick and convenient way to dose CBD. They come in so many different shapes and sizes, you’ll be able to try out different options and make sure you get the right one for your needs. It’s also one of the easier ways to enjoy terpenes. Mixing the two together allows you to customize the benefits of the terpenes with the calming effects of CBD.
