What Is Weed Candle? Step-By-Step Preparation Of A CBD Oil Scented Candle
Every day there are more and more different and unusual ways of using marijuana and some of them are not even directly related to its actual use. Today we’ll discuss the topic of cannabis candles. Many magical herb lovers want to try something new for themselves and a great way to do this is to do aromatherapy with cannabis candles.
You have probably faced such a problem when it is necessary to hide the smell of cannabis so that no one can detect that you are using weed. In this case, it is unnecessary to hide anything. Aromatic CBD candles smell good and have a slight effect like after smoking joints.
What Is a Cannabis Candle?
This candle is almost familiar to you, but it contains cannabis essential oil as well as distilled oil with terpenes. Terpenes are aromatic compounds that form in the flowers and leaves of marijuana. These compounds determine the taste and aroma of cannabis.
If you inhale the scent of a cannabis candle, you won’t get high, even if it seems to you that you have caught some kind of high – this is an illusion. The only thing you can get is an almost subtle pleasant sensation from the smell you inhale. Weed candle can only set you in the right mood and create a favorable atmosphere for smoking cannabis sessions, but weed candles that get you high does not exist.
Cannabis Candle Aromatherapy
As we noted earlier, weed scented candle is not capable of having a strong psychological effect on the person who inhales its scent, but it is very useful for aromatherapy. There are lots of benefits of CBD candles: doctors who use cannabis oils in their practice say that aromatherapy with such oils has a very beneficial effect on human health. Aromatic cannabis oils soothe the nervous system, normalize sleep, relieve severe stress and give a feeling of complete calmness.
The most commonly used terpenes in cannabis infused candles are: myrcene, limonene, and linalool. Let’s consider each of them in more detail:
- Myrcene is a terpene that is often found in highly aromatic plants and herbs such as mangoes, hops, bay leaves, thyme, lemongrass, and basil. Myrcene is produced by numerous strains of cannabis, and some studies in rodents have shown that it can be sedative. Another plant where you can find myrcene in mango. Anecdotal evidence suggests that eating ripe mangoes before using cannabis can enhance or enhance the psychoactive effects of cannabis;
- Limonene is the second most common terpene in nature and the most popular terpene in cannabis. The aroma of citrus peels is mostly limonene, so you’d be correct in assuming that this terpene got its name from lemon. The pleasant smell of limonene has made it a common addition in perfumery, food and weed candles;
- Linalool is a naturally occurring terpene found in many colors and spices, including lavender and coriander. It emits a complex yet delicate floral scent, and while linalool has many different effects, it is in particular the most widely used stress reliever. Since ancient times, people have inhaled the scents of various plants containing linalool to reduce stress levels, fight inflammation and fight depression. Other less common terpenes can be used in hemp candles.
If you are a lover of fruity, floral, woody and looking for relaxation or revitalization, then there is definitely a weed scented candle for you.
Where to Buy a Cannabis Candle?
Most often, their availability depends on the region and city in which you live. Try to go to the nearest dispensary and find out if they offer any health products with cannabis and essential oils. If not, then there are a huge number of THC candles of different brands in online stores. There will be much more to choose from and you can buy an unscented candle, a CBD candle and even a colored one!
