For perfect health and wellness, raw, organic CO2-extracted hemp is the answer. This is the nonpsycoactive cannabis/hemp, with its potent active ingredients, known as cannabinoids. Read about a special raw cannabis/hemp extract fortified with wild, raw oregano, also a rich source of cannabinoids and the all-important antiinflammatory substance, beta caryophyllene. Find out all the cannabinoid sources in nature—spices and more.
Scientists have spent a lot of effort trying to create cannabinoids with medical properties but no high. New research suggests that there is already a solution. The cannabinoid that could erase decades of work is beta-caryophyllene (BCP). BCP is found in the essential oils of a variety of plants, including rosemary, oregano, hops, cloves and, of course, cannabis. It’s also highly present in black pepper.
Caryophyllene /ˌkærioʊfɪˈliːn/, or (−)-β-caryophyllene, is a natural bicyclic sesquiterpene that is a constituent of many essential oils, especially clove oil, the oil from the stems and flowers of Syzygium aromaticum (cloves), the essential oil of hemp Cannabis sativa, rosemary Rosmarinus officinalis, and hops. It is usually found as a mixture with isocaryophyllene (the cis double bond isomer) and α-humulene (obsolete name: α-caryophyllene), a ring-opened isomer. Caryophyllene is notable for having a cyclobutane ring, as well as a trans-double bond in an 8-membered ring, both rarities in nature.
Caryophyllene is one of the chemical compounds that contributes to the spiciness of black pepper. Beta-caryophyllene was shown to be selective agonist of cannabinoid receptor type-2 (CB2) and to exert significant cannabimimetic antiinflammatory effects in mice. Antinociceptive, neuroprotective, anxiolytic and antidepressant  and anti-alcoholism  activity have been uncovered. Because the widespread plant natural product beta-caryophyllene is an FDA approved food additive and ingested daily with food it is the first dietary cannabinoid. Whether this compound is able to modulate inflammatory processes in humans via the endocannabinoid system is yet unknown. Beta-caryophyllene does not bind to the centrally expressed cannabinoid receptor type-1 (CB1) and therefore does not exert psychoactive effects.
Caryophyllene oxide, in which the olefin of caryophyllene has become an epoxide, is the component responsible for cannabis identification by drug-sniffing dogs and is also an approved food flavoring. – Definition taken from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caryophyllene
The name of the hemp plant, botanically, is Cannabis, that being the genus name. The species name is sativa. The other common species is indica, derived from its source, India. The terms hemp and cannabis will be used interchangeably. In contrast, the hallucinogenic type, that is the type that has hypnotic powers, will be referred to as marijuana.
It seems that some people can’t get over the term cannabis. Somehow, they think it is bad: that it means pot. How can this be the case? It is merely its botanical identification. Pot or marijuana is bred to be hypnotic. Otherwise, no one would use it. Yet, the marijuana plant, too, is cannabis. Here, the type which is described is the industrial type, which is free of intoxicating powers to any degree. Cannabis is a descriptive term, because it identifies the original, non-intoxicating plant with vast medicinal powers, while also being used to describe the intoxicating variety, often leading to confusion.
● Never solvent extracted
● 100% raw and unheated
● Enzymes intact
● Full terpene profile
● Full profile of the highly potent, novel terpenoid cannabinoid, Beta-caryophyllene
● No toxicity
● No side effects of any kind
● Synergistic profile of other cannabinoid-rich extracts such as wild oregano P73, hops extract, and extract of chamomile
● No THC risk
● Often solvent extract using, for instance, butane, hexane, alcohol, and/or isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)
● Nearly always heat-treated
● Enzymes destroyed by heat and solvents
● Minimal or reduced terpene profile
● low profile of Beta-caryophyllene, molecule often extensively damaged by heat and/or solvent extraction
● if containing solvent residues, particularly residues of butane and hexane, may cause tissue toxicity, including damage to kidneys and liver
● Side effects include drowsiness, apathy, heavy limbs, and a sensation of being “stoned.”
● No synergy: contains only cannabinoids from hemp
● Some CBD oils have high THC contents, which may lead to a modest degree of hallucinations and also the sensation of being “stoned.”
