Which CBD Strains Are The Best For Energy?

Today I'd like to talk about which cannabis strains are best for the day time. Cannabis strains contain different percentages of 'cannabinoids', various compounds found in the plant that have mind-altering effects on humans, including THC and CBD. As well as these cannabinoids, there are other chemicals in the plant that could affect our bodies. This is why it's very important to research your medicine before using it.

I found that the best cannabis strains for the day time are those with low THC, high CBD and 'other beneficial cannabinoids' ratios. I personally find this ratio in Durban Poison, but some people might prefer other strains. It depends on how your body reacts to each strain, so it's important to try different strains in order to find the best one for you.

Note that this is not a list of what strains are "most likely" or "least likely" to cause anxiety; it is simply a list of which strains tend to be more uplifting and motivating.

Also note that none of these strains will guarantee a good day; what's important is how YOU feel when YOU take them. If you combine the following recommendations with similar knowledge about indica and sativa dominance and find something that works for YOU, then by all means keep using it!

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic compounds that are found in the essential oils of plants. They are responsible for the characteristic aroma of many plants. Terpenes are also known to have various therapeutic properties. Thanks to increasing demand of these naturally-occurring compounds, many new terpene products are being introduced in the market.

3 terpenes that are best for the day time.

Limonene

When it comes to the terpene limonene , there is a lot of anecdotal evidence about the effects that they have on people. Some people claim that limonene gives them energy. In order to get a better understanding of this terpene, let's take a closer look at their chemical structures and what they are believed to do.

Limonene is the second most prevalent terpene in cannabis. It gives citrus fruits their distinctive "lemony" aroma. Limonene is known for its anti-carcinogenic, antidepressant, antifungal, antiparasitic, and antibacterial properties. According to anecdotal reports, consumption of limonene's can give people energy and elevate their moods.

Limonene is most frequently found in the rinds of citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruits. The human body metabolizes limonene's into products that have been shown to have anti-carcinogenic properties. In addition to its presence in cannabis, limonene is used in fragrances and flavoring manufacturing.

Pinene

Pinene is a terpene that is found in pine trees and other coniferous plants. It is responsible for the smell of pine needles and is also found in orange peels, rosemary, and basil. Pinene has a number of benefits, including reducing stress, improving moods, and providing energy. It is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Terpineol 

Terpineol is a monoterpene and it is an energizing oil that helps to improve the mood. It is also a powerful antioxidant. The oil helps to improve mental clarity, focus, and concentration. It also helps to reduce stress and anxiety. It has a fresh, floral, and sweet scent to it. It can be used in place of turpentine for cleaning purposes.

Terpineol is also used in aromatherapy for eases nervous tension and stress, relaxes sore muscles, reduces pain, sets the mind at ease while easing worry and calming fear. It is an excellent oil to use in the evening for its calming properties. It is found in plants such as oranges, pines, and rosemary.

Indica vs Sativa

Indica and sativa are two species of cannabis. Indica strains tend to be more physically sedative; this means they are more likely to make you sleepy, relieve pain and reduce anxiety. Sativa strains tend to be more mentally sedative; this means they are more likely to make you lose track of time, feel creative, increase focus and reduce anxiety. Indica's are often used for nighttime use because of their ability to relax muscles. Sativa's are often used during the day because of there stimulating properties.
