Marijuana Terpenes Help Heal And Strengthen Human Bones

A recent study has many in both the legal marijuana and medical fields very excited. According to research published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, ingesting cannabis and cannabis-related products (like the terpenes we have for sale at True Blue) can actually turn your body into a superhero.

We’re not exaggerating. What’s the one thing that tons of superheroes can do that all humans wish they could do...we’ll wait… heal themselves, of course!

According to this recent study, a marijuana chemical known as the cannabinoid ‘cannabidiol’ has been shown to help bone fractures heal faster, resulting in bones that are stronger than they were before the injury.

Cannabinoid Cannabidiol (CBD) Helps The Body Heal

If you’ve been following our blog for even a short amount of time, you know that we’re always focusing on the amazing therapeutic properties of terpenes and terpenoids.

The terpenes that we have for sale here are the same ones that give your favorite marijuana strains their amazing flavor, aroma, and enhance their medicinal qualities. It’s also likely that you know our terpenes for sale are derived from a natural source other than cannabis, so much like the cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD) there are absolutely no psychotropic effects associated with their use.

It’s CBD that was the focus of this amazing study from the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research. “We found that CBD alone makes bones stronger during healing, enhancing the maturation of the collagenous matrix, which provides the basis for new mineralization of bone tissue,” researcher Yankel Gabet said. “After being treated with CBD, the healed bone will be harder to break in the future.”

Bones Contain Cannabinoid Receptors

So how exactly does CBD enable this awesome self-healing power and deliver its strengthening effects? It has to do with the fact that our bones contain receptors that are perfectly suited to receiving cannabinoids.

“We only respond to cannabis because we are built with intrinsic compounds and receptors that can also be activated by compounds in the cannabis plant,” Gabet said. “The clinical potential of cannabinoid-related compounds is simply undeniable at this point,” Gabet said.

Terpenes Harbor Many Of The Same Beneficial Effects!
What’s even more interesting to the team here at True Blue is the fact that terpenes and terpenoids contain many of the same therapeutic benefits of cannabinoids. As we discussed in a previous post about the “entourage effect” of cannabis consumption, consuming CBD compounds in conjunction with therapeutic terpenes--such as citrus terpenes--can enhance the medicinal effect.
