Nature's Choice offers natural products made from organic terpenes with non-THC, non-CBD and patent pending formulas.
Terpenes are hydrocarbon compounds found in almost every plant and flower as well as in cannabis. Terpenes are what give them their taste and smell. Not only that, but terpenes have health benefits and why some strains of marijuana may make you feel extremely tired and another one may be a great pain reliever, while another gives you energy. Those are the terpenes doing that in many cases. In fact, many studies show that when people are looking for immediate pain relief, they're buying CBD. And really what they should be looking at is terpene products with the correct profile for pain relief if the immediacy of relief is what they're looking for.
So what's the difference between CBD and terpenes? It's pretty simple. Maybe you took CBD in the past and it didn't work for you. We know that CBD has been an absolute miracle for many users, but because it is a cannabinoid, it's processed in the body differently. Studies have shown that the full effect of CBD isolate use can take a while, even with regular, daily use. This greatly depends upon quality and quantity amongst other factors such as your body weight and diet.
So what about the rest of us? Those of us looking for immediate pain relief or relief from insomnia or depression or anxiety. Or just need that extra energy or focus? For those looking for relief immediately should use terpene formulas. They're the healthy alternative to CBD but also the over-the-counter options. A lot of those over the counter options come with all sorts of negative side effects when taken long term which is what many people need to do for chronic issues. Terpene formulas may be taken alone to target the specific need and also be taken with CBD to increase those effects.
Terpenes have physical effects depending upon the specific formula blend. Overall research has found that terpenes provide physical effects that include anti-inflammatory properties, pain relief, anti-cancer, antibacterial, antifungal properties, assistance with muscle spasms, acid reflux relief, memory stimulation in Alzheimer patients, suppression of prostate cancer growth, bronchodilator, neuroprotective properties and also anti-epileptic benefits.

What are the specific terpenes used in Nature's Choice formulas? Here's a listing to give you some understanding of a few of the terpenes used in our products.
There are over 400 different compounds found in the cannabis plant and over 200 of them are terpenes. Terpenes are essentially molecules found in plants, flowers and fruit that give them their distinctive smell.
However, terpenes aren't just present because they make things smell nice to us, terpenes essentially act as a plant's natural pest repellent. And they help plants survive high temperatures. Cannabis has a huge array of terpenes, but the same kind of terpenes are found in every day plants and herbs too. Terpenes are produced within the cannabis plant inside the trichomes – the same place where the cannabinoids are.
Despite terpenes making up only 1% of collective cannabis samples, they contribute to about 10$ of trichome content. They also evaporate at high temperatures, which is why cannabis smells the most pungent first thing in the morning. And this is why when we harvest our plants, we make sure that we harvest first thing in the morning to ensure that we retain as many of the terpenes as possible.
- Myrcene is the most abundant type of terpene found in cannabis and give it that earthy spicy clove-like aroma. It can also be found in plants like wild thyme, hops, lemongrass, basil and even mango. Some of the purported health benefits include aiding in diabetes effects, pain relief as well as a sedative.
- Limonene is one of the most common terpenes found in nature. If you're ever notices a lemony or orangey citrus flavor in any hemp oils, it's because of the limonene. Some of the potential benefits of limonene include the ability to dissolve cholesterol containing gallstones, relieving heartburn, causing cancer cell death and being anti-inflammatory and also has both antibacterial and antifungal properties. Mood enhancing and anti-anxiety effects have also been noted in animals and humans.
- Pinene is commonly found in pine resins and conifers and has been found to be antimicrobial. It also acts as a bronchodilator when inhaled at low concentrations. It has also been found to have anti-inflammatory properties.
- Lavender has been well know for a long time to aid sleep, relaxation and to have sedative effects. We now know why: it's most likely because it contains the terpene Linalool. This terpene has been found to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It also appears to have anti-seizure properties.
- Beta Caryophyllene can be found in black pepper, leafy greens and of course, cannabis. It's unique among other terpenes because it actually activates the cb2 receptor sites. These compounds are referred to as cannabinomimetic and explains why this terpene is knows to have immunomodulating as well as anti-inflammatory effects. There's a study that shows that it is even more effective than synthetic cannabinoids. Similar to cannabinoids, this terpene is known to be a powerful antioxidant. It has also been found to ease anxiety and depression, stimulate the cell death in cancer cells and may even be a possible treatment for alcoholism.
- Humelene naturally occurs in clove, basil, hops and cannabis. It has a subtle earthy, woody aroma with spicy herbal notes. This terpene has been linked to reducing inflammation, relieving pain, suppressing appetite, killing bacteria and shows promising potential in fighting against cancer.
