Have you ever smelled something really, really, REALLY amazing and it just kind of… makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside – perhaps even almost “healthier” or more “energized”? Well, it turns out that this is not just “in your head” and there’s actually some pretty legitimate (not to mention cool) scientific reasoning behind that.
Essential oils have enhanced our lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of natural health benefits and healing properties. Aromatherapy – the use essential oils for healing purposes – allows people to improve physical, mental and emotional health naturally. This is a very old medicinal and therapeutic technique that’s been used for decades in the world of modern holistic medicine to help treat things like insomnia, stress, anxiety, and other mental conditions. As you may’ve guessed, cannabis (and all of its wonderfully diverse terpenes) is one of the most well-known and effective aromatherapies known.
The benefits of aromatherapy – and specifically cannabis aromatherapy – are certainly no gimmick. In fact, the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) describes the healing technique as “…the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit.” As aromatherapy has advanced and become more and more recognized over the years, it has indeed evolved into a frequently used approach among holistic medicine practitioners who aim to provide natural therapy that embraces the entirety of the body, mind, and spirit.
Before we dig in deeper, let’s establish that there is a distinct difference between the healing effects of ingesting and/or smoking cannabis vs. the healing effects of using it purely as an aromatherapy. When you consume cannabis, the active compounds THC and CBD end up in your bloodstream where they bind to internal receptors to promote a wide range of chemical and physical therapeutic interactions. Aromatherapy does not offer this same kind of internal molecular action.
Aromatherapy works via the subtle interaction of aromatic molecules with mood and behavior-oriented receptors in the brain. In other words, when you take a deep whiff of your favorite cannabis strain, what you’re actually doing is inhaling airborne terpenes that galvanize a slight behavioral response in the central nervous system. In short, there is something about cannabis terpenes that the brain absolutely loves, and responds positively to in a healthy, naturally therapeutic manner.
