Earlier this week we looked at all the different ways that you can control your high by using the terpenes that naturally occur in cannabis plants. I told you that we weren’t done looking at all the ways that you can use terpenes to your advantage. There are so many more terpenes that we haven’t even begun to discuss. No matter what you’re looking for, there is a terpene and thus a strain for you.
I’m Looking for a Strain to Help Me Lose Weight
If you’re looking for a strain to help you lose weight, then you are most likely going to want a strain that contains Humulene. Humulene is a terpene that gives strains their woodsy earthy flavor and hoppy aroma. This strain not only suppresses appetite, it also works as a powerful anti inflammatory as well as a pain reliever. Some strains that have Humulene are Girl Scout Cookies, Headband, White Widow, and Sour Diesel.
I Want a Strain That Will Make My Body Feel Good
Sometimes you're looking for a strain that will not yield any kind mental high and that is okay! If you’re looking for a strain that will cure what ails you, but has low to nonexistent mental effects, then you’re looking for a strain with Caryophyllene. Caryophyllene gives some strains their peppery, spicy aroma and is found in many common spices such as pepper and cloves. Some popular strains that contain Caryophyllene are Chemdawg, and Bubba Kush. These strains are almost entirely physical and will make you feel as though you are floating on a cloud!
I’m Treating Myself for Cancer
If you are unfortunate enough to have cancer, you’re probably going to want a strain that contains the powerful cancer fighting terpene Borneol. Borneol gives many strains that earthy flavor and aroma. In addition to helping fight cancer, Borneol makes a great pain reliever and helps improve breathing by reducing pressure on the lungs. Strains that have Borneol in them include K13, and most of the Haze strains such as Super Silver Haze, Lemon Haze, etc.
I Need a Strain that Will Make my Period Less Heavy
If you’re looking for a strain that will lessen the blood flow when aunt Flo comes calling, then you should look for a strain that contains Delta 3 Carene. It’s not just for making your period a little less heavy, it helps reduce all bodily fluids such as saliva. Be advised, strains with Delta 3 Carene give pretty severe cotton mouth and dry eyes. Delta 3 Carene is also known to be useful for treating medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s, and is even believed to help heal bones. Popular strains that have this terpene are Haze strains such as Super Lemon Haze and Super Silver Haze.
