Homemade CBD and Custom Terpene “oil”

Through this painful journey I’ve been on, not finding products or relief from pain killers, procedures, creams, high dose CBD products and only having luck with ONE CBD strain, I decided to delve into why this one particular strain worked better than anything and did it quickly, lasted a long time and had no druggy after effects.

After doing the research on the strain I was smoking, I found out a lot of interesting things:

  • I did research to find out the Terpenes and labels of each one in this particular strain and I came up with this: These 4 Terpene isolates were found in high levels – Myrcene, Beta-Carophyllene, Linalool and Pinene. These 4 particular Terpene isolates are known for their pain relieving qualities. A few other pain reducing Terpenes in lower concentrations were Humulene, Ocilene, Terpinolene and Limonene.

So what did I do? I went onto Amazon and found a 4 pack of dietary (ingestible) terpenes made by Elevation Terpenes that was 45 dollars for the 4 pack and then bought CBD isolate powder, 3 grams of it to start off with which was around 88 dollars but will last a long time. The CBD isolate powder I bought from the CBDistillery as a quantity of (3) 1 gram purchases using a 10% off coupon of “CBDMOVEMENT”.

So I started to play with different combinations of ingredients knowing that you can’t go wrong with any combination. The best combination to date with the greatest effects was mixing Myrcene and Beta-Carophyllene together in a 2:1 ratio to each other and then adding about 40-50mg of CBD powder. So it ends up being 60-70mg total. 20mg of terpenes and 40-50mg of CBD powder. Then take it under the tongue like you would a CBD oil, not all of it, just what looks like a common sense amount but remember you can’t overdose on this, you can only run out quicker using more. Perhaps get jars, a dropper, coconut oil and milligram measuring capability to do this whole thing right. Obviously to get the full effect you want to use all 4 of the Terpenes included in the pack so a dropper bottle and measuring methods should be on your list.

Yes, the initial investment may be costly but it won’t cost as much after your first dropper bottle is empty and it’s time to make more..

If you have any questions about using all terpenes, CBD powder and MCT oil such as coconut oil and combining them right, just email me and I’ll help you with probably the best and strongest home made pain remedy that’s a 99% pure CBD with full spectrum ingredients.

Terpenes: Specific Profiles and Isolates For Specific Pain Problems.

Pain, inflammation, stiffness, overuse, cancer, illness, wasting, referred from, referred to, localized, radicular, neuralgia, neuropathy, injury, misspent youths, athletes, whatever you call it or refer to it as, pain is just like this list: all different. All with different causes, grades, illnesses, uses, over use, referred from one location to another another, so you wonder why there are so many different kinds of opioids on the market.

Before I continue I will agree with the general consensus: this country has an opioid problem. It’s not the patients fault unless, of course, that patient has drug selling behaviours no one had picked up before making them a great actor and mind you, doctors are excellent at finding these patients and denying them opioids because whatever pain they have is Tylenol worthy. Not Dilaudid worthy. Not tramadol worthy. Not hydrocodone, oxycodone, codeine, buprenorphine, Suboxone, methadone, fentanyl, morphine, etc, worthy. So these users either realize that immediately or become statistics either via heroin ODs or other synthetic variants made in bathtubs that are 100 times more potent than transdermal fentanyl.

So if opioids isn’t the answer for you then what is? One word: Terpenes (either profiles or isolates).

There is one common misconception about terpenes: they are derived from the Cannabis plant be it hemp or Marijuana.

This is 100% untrue. As you know, cannabis – hemp or Marijuana – are plants, AKA botanicals. The Terpenes I use personally and put in our pain products are botanical terpene isolates but not from any plant in the cannabis species. The terpene isolates I use are from plants heavy in specific terpinoids, not plants that are high in one and low in another hence why we use Isolates: only one specific terpene from any one botanical.

There are a handful of Terpene isolates that are amazing at pain control, that aren’t expensive at all and can be made into a fully Entourage inducing product by using CBD isolate with added terpene isolates to complete the solution.

The list of Terpene Isolates that are great for both pain and inflammation are the following:

  • Myrcene – A study done just this year revealed that it’s uses as an anti-inflammatory and for treating pain from migraine and arthritis are exceptionally great for an herbal botanical ingredient.
  • Pinene – Also called Alpha-Pinene, is also a great anti-inflammatory which is also great for the immune and respiratory systems.
  • Linalool – Studied as a potent antioxidant, it’s properties Target the immune system and halt it’s inflammatory response.
  • Humulene – Proven to be an effective anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, appetite suppressant and anti-tumor.
  • Beta-Carophyllene – Shown to be an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-anxiety and anti-depressant.
  • Limonene – Promotes weight loss, prevents cancer, treats cancer, and treats bronchitis
  • Terpinolene – Good as a mild sedative and can reduce anxiety. Anything that is good at reducing anxiety is often used to help with musculoskeletal pain like how they prescribe Valium for this sort of pain in the cervical spine.

For relaxation, a combination of Myrcene, Linalool, Terpinolene and Beta-Carophyllene can help aid insomniacs when mixed in the right combinations.

Personally, due to my pain from a degenerating c-spine, in forced to be on heavy non-impairing narcotics namely the transdermal 3 day fentanyl patch and oxycodone (Percocet). I supplement the extra pain I have that’s left over with terpenes, CBD and CBG combinations. U can always ask for an increase in the fentanyl dose but instead I go the natural route and find it to be highly beneficial due to the other effects it offers the human body.

I use the product “Elevation Terpenes” which can be found in Amazon for 15 dollars USD for small amounts but remember, you should be taking small quantities of terpenes for their effects versus trying to drown out your pain and insomnia with extra amounts of terps. Your body and it’s CB1 and CB2 receptors in your ECS can only transmit and metabolize so much at once.

Your initial investment for CBD isolate based solutions are 20 to 60 dollars of CBD isolate powder depending on how much you buy at once, each one of 4 terpenes are $15 on Amazon so that’s approximately $120 as an initial investment. I generally put in 1/2 gram per 1/2 gram of coconut oil, and 1-2 milligrams of each terpenes into a small jar. The only thing I would say you can change without ruining the broth is how much CBD isolate you decide to use, 1/2 gram versus 1 gram. Obviously there is more concentrated CBD in 1 gram versus 1/2 gram. To add CBG, add about 20-50 drops from a 30ml bottle which contains 1000mg total of CBG. Adding CBN is an option but it’s harder to find and then find at recent prices.

The concoction above is good for oral ingestion (sublingual) if the Terpenes you buy are dietary kinds such as the brand I mentioned.

What you see above is an option to either complete your pain management solution with narcotic usage or to replace it altogether.

CBG – Where Do I Get It?

Since posting our last article on CBG (cannabigerol) we’ve had many inquiries as to where to get it from.

Good question! But I have answers!

One site that I’ve done a fair amount of business with before is now offering a CBG solution of their own in tincture form in 15ml and 30ml quantities from 250mg to 1000mg. They are Tweedle Farms.

I will be speaking with another company that ONLY deals with CBG and CBG/CBD tinctures besides other Cannabinoids such as CBN as well to see if we can setup a partnership or affiliate relationship to offer our users the ability to get this amazing product easily. Otherwise I will post their URL in a newer post if a further relationship can’t be created.

Another big company out of Las Vegas is creating cannabinoid isolates upwards of 100% purity. I have contacted them today only and unfortunately it was after their offices had closed so of course I will try tomorrow and in loop the interim, filled out their affiliate forms and contact form to investigate the option of wholesaling their products when our store goes live.

So bare with us! In the interim we will put up a page containing URLs to different products and what we recommend through our own experiences with samples or regular usage of products versus third party reviews. Actual reviews from those like us who are chronically ill and benefit from these products!

CBD Tinctures and Extreme Pain Conditions

So as we say, CBD is a panacea, a cure-all. The problem I’ve found with CBD is yes, your body gets used to the higher doses and lower doses you take pretty quickly and requires more to give you the same effects.

I used to take 2500mg bottles which would be 2 dropper full doses in AM and PM. Simply put, this hasn’t cut it for a while as 166mg of CBD a day isn’t enough (2500mg รท 30ml = 83mg per dose in AM and PM).

I had to swap out my 2500mg CBD bottles for 4 doses a day, 2 AM and 2 PM equalling 167mg per dose from a 2500mg bottle total or do what I did which is step up to the next sized bottle of 5000mg where each of 2 daily doses is 167mg AM and PM.

Sure you will pay more for a 5000mg bottle but it will last you longer than doubling up your doses on a 2500mg bottle.

For those with severe pain illnesses, insomnia, etc, higher doses of CBD will have greater effects especially if you add any dosage of CBG to the mix.

Since adding a 1000mg 30ml bottle of CBG, cannabigerol, the compounding effects have cut down my pain a notch or two and helping the insomnia by increasing sleep by at least 2 hours a night.

Just like any medication or supplement, your body’s endocannabinoid system can get used to CBD thus requiring you to increase your dose eventually on a constant taper up schedule.

Are there ways around this?

Yes. If you buy CBD wax or shatter, aka CBD in extremely pure forms, you can smoke it and feel the effects immediately before sleep or watch the pain subside at the beginning of the day.

Smoking high concentration CBD flower buds which are full spectrum by nature containing very useful terpenes for sleep and pain control depending on the strain and exactly what terpenes are in high quantities such as Myrcene, Pinene, Linalool, Terpinolene, beta-carophyllene to name a few. Before you buy a high CBD strain of flower, do some research on the strain on Leafly.com as all known THC and CBD strains are listed there which includes what they are best used for medically and what you will feel. Smoking CBD is safer than vaping it unless you have a Volcano vaporizer which vaporizes instead of combusts the flower so you inhale the medicine and not the other toxins.

How and what you end up taking is eventually up to personal preference, cost of product and your own research.

Best of luck.
