WHAT FRUIT IN OUR HOMES DO WE LOVE TO SMELL?

Limonene is a terpene molecule found in many strains of cannabis as well as citrus fruits – such as lemons. I have never met a person who has not smelled a lemon and then smelled it again.

We all love lemon smells. Why? We love limonene because it mimics the effects of cannabinoid stimulation of our cannabinoid receptors.

So, we get a tiny good feeling from limonene.

We use limonene oil in most cleaning products because limonene is a great organic solvent for cleaning, AND the scent makes us feel good. How many of us have had our house “cleaned” by someone, only to find out they cleaned a little and sprayed lemon scent to make us THINK the house is cleaner AND make us feel good about it. :))

The cannabis plant has hundreds and hundreds of such  molecules and when we use cannabis as medicine we are taking in as many as up to 1000 different molecules. This is another way of saying that whole plant cannabis is very, very different than hemp or molecular CBD.

If you are feeling a bit down, smell a lemon….OR try whole plant CBD. You will love it.
