What are terpenes?

Terpenes are fragrant compounds that are derived from hemp and other plants. Different strains of hemp contain different terpenes, which give them their unique health benefits and properties.

Terpenes are becoming more popular in Australia due to them being known as a legal, effective, and affordable alternative to CBD oil. 


Both terpenes and CBD oil interact with the body's endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating functions such as pain, hormonal balance, digestion, inflammation, and more.


Sometimes the body needs help to produce additional endocannabinoids which can cause issues with regulating other systems in your body. Terpenes can be used to help the body with the production of endocannabinoids.


You can't fail a drug test while using terpenes, which makes them a popular choice for men and women that are tested regularly for work, or jobs that involve driving.



Why Cannology?

Cannology was the first company in Australia to popularise Beta-Caryophyllene and other terpenes for therapeutic use. Since conception in 2018, many brands have attempted to compete with us. However, they have been unable to uphold the same level of quality and service that Cannology is honoured to be able to provide for its customers.

It has come to our attention that some brands use terpenes that are made in China, which is very unfortunate as terpenes from China are proven to be dangerous for human consumption. Terpenes from China are NOT therapeutic grade and they use unsafe extraction methods involving toxic chemicals.

Some brands even 'claim' that their terpenes are safe to consume when we find out upon analysis that they are actually Chinese terpenes, and we can't do anything about these misleading brands which continue to sell tainted products to this day.

Cannology terpenes are made in the USA in GMP-certified facilities using steam distillation which is the safest and purest way to extract terpenes from botanical sources. We continue to pride ourselves in being able to provide the best quality terpenes in Australia, and we promise to uphold this standard forever.
