Terpenes in CBD and their virtues

Terpenes are molecules found in many plants that give them their odor, flavor and color. Their function is to repel predators of the plant or attract pollinating insects. Hemp is one of the plants containing the widest variety of terpenes. Their presence and quantity change depending on the variety of hemp. In addition to THC and CBD, these terpenes are essential components of cannabis found in the flowers and oils: they give them their smell and flavor but most importantly their therapeutic properties. Knowing these properties will help you choose among the multiple products of Magna CBD.


Myrcene is the most abundant terpene in the cannabis plant. It has several virtues: anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antibacterial, it also has analgesic properties, that is, it helps prevent and reduce pain. Its anti-tumor action would make it an ally against cancer. Known for its sedative and relaxing effects, it is used in natural therapies, for example in the form of CBD oil, against sleep disorders.

Our CBD flower Blue Dream is rich in myrcene.


The second terpene found in most cannabis strains, limonene is a natural antibacterial and antifungal. It also has anxiolytic properties: it favors the feeling of well-being, reduces stress and anxiety. It also improves attention and concentration. On a physical level, limonene decreases gastroesophageal reflux and therefore helps digestion. Furthermore, by helping the absorption of other terpenes, it reinforces their effects.

Limonene gives our CBD flower Turbo Orange its citrus flavor.


This coniferous-scented terpene has beneficial effects on memory and concentration. A powerful antibacterial and antifungal, it protects the lungs from viruses such as bronchitis. Thanks to its bronchodilator and expectorant effects, pinene helps clear the airways and is therefore an ally against asthma. This property allows it to promote the absorption of cannabionoids (CBD and THC) and therefore increase their effects.

Our CBD flower ACDC herb is a good source of pinene.


The linalool

Below its lavender smell, linalool hides many therapeutic properties. It gives cannabis and CBD products their relaxing properties. Promoting well-being and sleep, it helps, like limonene, to overcome periods of stress, anxiety or depression. Linalool also has an anti-inflammatory action and helps strengthen the immune system. Due to its cell regeneration capabilities, it is used in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease to restore cognitive functions.

Linalool ensures the soothing effect of our CBD flower MoonRock.


Present in many other types of plants besides hemp, including clove and pepper, this spicy, woody-smelling terpene is a natural painkiller that works against both spot and local pain such as toothache and chronic pain such as arthritis. Like cannabionoids (CBD or THC), caryophyllene interacts with receptors in the endocannabinoid system that allows cannabis to act on the body and thus affects pain perception.

People with persistent pain or owners of dogs with osteoarthritis are therefore well advised to choose a product rich in caryophyllene, such as our CBD flower Blackberry Kush.


Humulene is found in many varieties of hemp. In addition to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it has been recognized for centuries by Chinese medicine as a natural antibiotic, sedative and painkiller. It has also been shown to be an anorectic, meaning that it decreases appetite and is therefore a alliance in weight loss diets. Used in the treatment of cancer, it interacts with other terpenes and cannabionoids to decrease diseased cells and their proliferation.

Our CBD flower Sour Widow offers a good supply of humulene.

Synthesis on terpenes

In addition to these six main terpenes, various varieties of the cannabis plant contain more than 100. Studies have shown that the interaction of these different compounds within the plant increases their medicinal effectiveness and tolerability. Thus the synergy between terpenes and THC or CBD improves the absorption of these cannabionoids by the body and thus increases their effects.

This principle, called the "entourage effect," makes whole cannabis plant preparations, oils or flowers, more beneficial than treatments based on isolated cannabionoids, such as THC or CBD. The presence of terpenes and their proportion varies according to the varieties of hemp. It is up to each person to choose according to their needs the products that best suit them, among the CBD oils and flowers.
