Terpenes are naturally-occurring oils found in plants. They are the chemicals that determine how certain aromas “smell”. Lavender, citrus and pine are all scents that are controlled by Terpenes.
The human neurological network is extraordinarily complex, controlled by the brain and responsible for keeping our bodies hormonally balanced. External factors such as lifestyle, stress, lack of sleep – disrupt this balance. This can lead to feelings of anxiety, depression and increased levels of stress. Terpenes work on the Endocannabinoid system that is a part of our neurological network to restore that balance.
A study completed in 2011 by Dr Ethan Russo extensively explored the positive effects of Terpenes on our Endocannabinoid system. It was peer-reviewed and published in the British Journal of Pharmacology. You can review the study on the British Pharmacological Society website here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3165946/

These effects are what might leave you energized, lethargic, suppress your appetite or give you a case of the munchies. The effect based on what is ingested is different for different people.
