Comment les terpènes affectent les effets d’une variété de cannabis ?, Aurélien Bernard, Newsweed.fr, 12 mai 2010

Comment les terpènes affectent les effets d’une variété de cannabis ? Publié le 12 mai 2020 NEWSWEED.fr , Par Aurélien BERNARD https://www.newsweed.fr/comment-terpenes-affectent-effets-variete-cannabis/     Lorsqu’on entend le mot terpène, la première idée qui vient à l’esprit est l’odeur d’une plante. La recherche scientifique a pourtant montré que les terpènes remplissent plus qu’une unique fonction sensorielle. Les terpènes produisent ainsi des effets spécifiques sur le corps, qu’ils soient anti-inflammatoires, antibactériens, relaxants ou anxiolytiques. C’est d’ailleurs aussi pour cette raison que certaines variétés procurent un sentiment de calme et de bien-être, alors que d’autres favorisent l’énergie. Les terpènes s’insèrent ainsi complètement dans l’effet d’entourage, qui suppose que les composants [...]

Terpenoids From Cannabis Do Not Mediate an Entourage Effect by Acting at Cannabinoid Receptors, David B. Finlay et al., 2020

Terpenoids From Cannabis Do Not Mediate an Entourage Effect by Acting at Cannabinoid Receptors David B. Finlay, Kathleen J. Sircombe, Mhairi Nimick, Callum Jones and Michelle Glass Frontiers in Pharmacology, 2020, Volume 11, Article 359, 1-9. doi : 10.3389/fphar.2020.00359   The entourage effect was a proposed explanation for biological observations that endocannabinoid ligand activities can be modified by other lipids released from cells at the same time. An increasing volume of anecdotal reports and interest in the plant have provoked research into the activity of minor chemical constituents of the plant—including volatile terpenoids such as myrcene, a- and b- pinene, b-caryophyllene, and limonene. However, to [...]

Comprehensive classification of USA cannabis samples based on chemical profiles of major cannabinoids and terpenoids, Ramia Z. Al Bakain et al., 2019

Comprehensive classification of USA cannabis samples based on chemical profiles of major cannabinoids and terpenoids Ramia Z. Al Bakain, Yahya S. Al-Degs, James V. Cizdziel and Mahmoud A. Elsohly Journal of Liquid Chromatography & Related Technologies, 2019 Doi : 10.1080/10826076.2019.1701015   ABSTRACT Different USA-origin cannabis samples were analyzed by GC-FID to quantify all possible cannabinoids and terpenoids prior to their clustering. Chromatographic analysis confirmed the presence of seven cannabinoids and sixteen terpenoids with variable levels. Among tested cannabinoids, D9-Tetrahydro-cannabinol D9-THC and cannabinol CBN were available in excess amounts (1.2–8.0 wt%) and (0.22–1.1 wt%), respectively. Fenchol was the most abundant terpenoid with a range of (0.03–1.0 wt%). [...]

Cannabis Oil : chemical evaluation of an upcoming cannabis-based medicine Luigi L. Romano, Arno Hazekamp Cannabinoids, 2013, 1, (1), 1-11 © International Association for Cannabinoid Medicines   Abstract Concentrated cannabis extracts, also known as Cannabis oils because of their sticky and viscous appearance, are becoming increasingly popular among self-medicating patients as a claimed cure for cancer. In general, preparation methods for Cannabis oils are relatively simple and do not re-quire particular instruments. The most well-known example of such a product is called ‘Simpson oil’. The purpose of the extraction, often followed by a solvent evaporation step, is to make canna-binoids and other beneficial components such as [...]
