What Are Cannabis Terpenes and Why Do We Pair Them With Crystal Energies?

Updated: Jun 4, 2023

Cannabis terpenes are organic compounds found in the essential oils of the cannabis plant. They are responsible for the aroma and flavor of different cannabis strains, and they also have therapeutic effects that work in conjunction with cannabinoids like THC and CBD.

There are over 200 different terpenes found in the cannabis plant, and each one has a unique aroma and potential therapeutic benefits. Some common terpenes found in cannabis include:

  • Myrcene: has a musky, earthy aroma and is known for its sedative and relaxing effects. It may also have anti-inflammatory properties.

  • Limonene: has a citrusy aroma and is believed to have anti-anxiety and anti-depressant effects. It may also have anti-inflammatory properties.

  • Pinene: has a piney aroma and is believed to have anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator effects. It may also improve cognitive function.

  • Caryophyllene: has a spicy, peppery aroma and may have anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. It may also have anti-anxiety properties.

  • Linalool: has a floral aroma and is believed to have calming and sedative effects. It may also have anti-inflammatory properties.

The effects of terpenes can vary depending on the individual and the specific strain of cannabis. However, some common effects of terpenes include relaxation, stress relief, pain relief, and improved mood.

Crystals have been used for spiritual purposes for thousands of years. Many cultures and belief systems, including ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, have used crystals for their perceived healing properties and spiritual significance. In many spiritual traditions, crystals are believed to have specific energies or vibrations that can help to balance and harmonize the body and mind. They are often used in meditation, energy healing, and other spiritual practices to help promote emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Crystals are also associated with the concept of chakras, which are believed to be energy centers in the body. Each chakra is associated with a specific color and corresponds to different emotional and physical states.

At Queen of Bud, we believe that both terpenes and crystals have therapeutic properties that can enhance each other's effects. While there is no scientific evidence to support the idea that crystals have healing properties, some people believe that they can help to balance energy and promote a sense of wellbeing. By pairing terpenes with crystals known to have similar effects, we can create a more holistic and personalized cannabis experience for our customers.

When we worked in retail, a common comment was "cannabis makes me paranoid". Your mindset is so important when you consume cannabis and can impact your experience. We wanted to simplify terpene effects with crystals but also give our customers a positive intention to focus on before they consume with. As an example; Rose Quartz as a crystal is known to be uplifting and social just like the cultivar that it's paired with, Rosetta Stone (Jack Herer x P75). The energy of the crystal or its intention, is love. When you consume the Rose Quartz products, we want you to create a state of loving vibrations, to write a list of 5 things that you love about yourself, or about life. This redirects our thoughts to something positive to ensure a great high!

Positive intentions can help individuals focus on their goals and desires, and can contribute to a more positive outlook on life. When individuals set positive intentions, they may be more likely to engage in behaviors and activities that align with those intentions. This can help create a sense of purpose and direction in one's life. In addition, setting positive intentions can help individuals cultivate a more positive mindset, which may lead to improved overall well-being. Positive thoughts and emotions have been linked to a range of benefits, including reduced stress levels, improved physical health, and increased happiness. It is also important to take action and make choices that support those intentions. Nonetheless, focusing on positive energy can be a helpful tool for individuals who want to cultivate a more positive mindset and approach to life.

If you change your perception, you can change everything.
