Terpenes and cannabinoids drive the healing properties of cannabis

Terpenes and cannabinoids drive the healing properties of cannabis

In a month festive with mystical holidays such as Halloween and Dia de los Muertos, elevate’s October review focuses on the magical properties of cannabis. Those terpene-induced properties could include everything from being a dreamy sleep aid, an appetite stimulator, and pain reliever to an anxiety and stress buster, and depression suppressor. Like treats collected on All Hallows’ Eve, we have assembled a slew of products that offer not only the opportunity for your body and mind to rest and relax but may also give you natural healing effects. To follow are a few edible, flower and concentrate suggestions that might just be the plant-based potion you need to expel an ailment like a witch banishes wicked spirits with her otherworldly powers.

GRAPE MONSTER BY FLEUR

For the novice, semi-regular user or professional: All

Strain Origins: Monster Cookies x Elephant Stomper

the mid-20s

Terpene Mix: Myrcene, Limonene, Caryophyllene, Linalool

What to expect: What do all grape-flavored things remind you of? For us, they recall deliciously decadent grape soda, the kind of intense flavor you only truly appreciated as a kid, right? Well, the Grape Monster is an adult treat that we think everyone will enjoy but now we look at him as a furry, friendly monster versus a scary one. It is a sativa strain with a robust fruity tone that is great for starting the day with a bang. This strain will uplift the mind, body, and spirit with a unique kind of energy—without making you feel as if your mind is racing. If you feel yourself slipping into negativity, this will wipe it away and replace bad thoughts with a purple haze of happiness. Use this for socializing or a power cleaning spree. The scent is a pleasing mix of funky cheese and sweet grapes—and makes for a perfect accompaniment to a rich Merlot for our wine lovers. Grape Monster and a nice glass of wine sounds like the perfect trick and treat.

For the novice, semi-regular user or professional: All

What to expect: This edible offers more magic with every bite, perfect for the spooky season for those who want to relive the trick or treat experience daily. However, this product leans toward the treat category as there are no tricks on how to eat it or how smooth the high. Dense like a brownie, Evergreen Organix’s Magic Bar layers sweet caramel batter with a graham cracker crust and is then topped with coconut flakes, chocolate chips and peanut butter morsels. The flavor profile fits right in line with the fall season. At 100mg, it’s an option for those who have a higher tolerance for edibles. Depending on your body weight and other factors, a 5mg dose can take anywhere from an hour to two hours to take effect so start small and increase with care. This all-over-high will leave you both alert and relaxed for total body wellness.
