Getting to Know Natural Hemp

Cannabis plants are made up of cannabinoids and terpenes. These little fellas provide the rich benefits that come from the natural hemp plant.

All Natural Hemp

Using natural hemp ingredients is central to what we do. We believe that nature has given us all we need to support a healthy body. We use plant-based natural hemp ingredients. We know where ALL of our ingredients come from. We know the soil it was grown in, the water that was used, and the farmers who nurtured it.


The chemical profile of the hemp plant contains compounds like terpenes, amino acids, proteins, sugars, enzymes, fatty acids, esters, and flavonoids just to name a few. Hemplucid products contain multiple cannabinoids and terpenes at various percentages, providing our customers the therapeutic benefits and versatility of the plant’s total chemical profile.

Understanding Cannabinoids

Cannabis plants are made up of cannabinoids and terpenes. These little fellas provide the rich benefits that come from the natural hemp plant.

  • CBDCannabidiol *CBD is a non-intoxicating component of cannabis that acts as an antagonist of CB1 and CB2 receptors. Clinical research highlights CBD’s potential to promote balance in your body’s most essential systems.
  • CBDVCannabidivarin Although research on CBDV is still in its initial stages, recent studies have shown promise for its use.
  • CBGCannabigerol CBG The research surrounding this specific cannabinoid (and its effects) are somewhat limited.
  • CBCCannabichromene *CBC is produced through an enzymatic process that takes place in the trichomes of the plant. This process involves the conversion of cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) into cannabichromenic acid (CBCA) by an enzyme known as CBCA synthase.
  • CBNCannabinol *By all accounts, CBN is the cannabinoid responsible for the sedative effects of cannabis.
  • CBDACannabidiolic acid *CDBA is the chemical precursor of CBD and is thought to reduce inflammation.
  • <.3% THCTetrahydrocannabinol *Though THC is responsible for the “high” of cannabis, we have kept this cannabinoid in our products at its legal limit of <0.3%. THC is synergistic with other cannabinoids and can enhance their value.

Understanding Terpenes

Besides affecting aroma and flavor, some evidence suggests that they may also modify the effects of natural hemp.

  • MYRCENEMyrcene (or β-myrcene) is a terpene that occurs often in fragrant plants and herbs such as mangoes, hops, bay leaves, lemongrass, and basil. It is thought to have sedative effects.
  • BISABOLOLα-Bisabolol or levomenol While it has long been widely used in the cosmetics industry, bisabolol has more recently become the subject of research for the benefits it displays in cannabis.
  • B-CARYOPHYLLENEβ Caryophyllene is the only terpene known to interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (CB2).
  • HUMULENEa-Humulene or Humulene contributes to the “hoppy” aroma of cannabis. This terpene acts as an appetite suppressant.

Secondary Terpenes

  • GUAIOLGuaiol is an alcohol found in the oil of guaiacum and cypress pine.
  • LINALOOLLinalool has a floral scent reminiscent of spring flowers, but with spicy overtones. It may aid in stress relief.
  • BORNEOLBorneol has a menthol aroma.
  • ISOPULEGOLIsopulegol is a chemical precursor to menthol and has a variety of promising routes for therapeutic research.
