What cannabis terpenes can do for your pain in Thailand

Aug 31, 2023

Exploring the Therapeutic Power of Terpenes in Phuket, Thailand

Finding natural alternatives for managing chronic pain, the world of terpenes is drawing significant interest. As the opioid epidemic continues to loom over us, the search for safer options becomes increasingly important. For those seeking relief from chronic pain, the potential of pain-fighting terpenes combined with analgesic cannabinoids may just be the breakthrough they’ve been waiting for.

Let’s understand what terpenes are

Terpenes are the compounds responsible for the way most plants smell. They are abundant in cannabis and many other plants, fruits, and herbs. They are among the numerous bio-active compounds found in cannabis. In fact, over 200 different terpenes have been identified in cannabis, giving each strain its unique aroma and therapeutic qualities. Imagine the sweet smell of Wedding Cake or the pungent scent of skunk, all thanks to these fascinating compounds.

Where Muay Thai fights, heavy drinking nights in Patong, and adventurous hikes are part of the scene in Phuket, pain can sometimes be an unwelcome visitor during your holiday. Whether it’s a sunburn after a day at the beautiful beaches or the muscle soreness from exploring the lush jungles, pain management becomes crucial. And this is where terpenes step in.

Take myrcene

This sedative terpene, commonly found in cannabis strains and even lemon grass, offers powerful anti-inflammatory benefits. It’s perfect for soothing those achy muscles after a challenging hike or a thrilling Muay Thai training session. And while you’re at it, don’t forget about β-caryophyllene, responsible for that spicy woody aroma found in cloves and black pepper. This terpene has shown promising anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, making it a potential aid in alleviating neuropathic pain. Here are some strains rich in Myrcene and β-caryophyllene Acapulco Gold & OG Haze.

Seeking relief from paw edema or hypersensitivity

Linalool, a terpene that demands attention, is your cannabis companion to watch. With its analgesic potential and capacity to interact with GABA receptors, linalool opens doors to intriguing pain management possibilities. After a day of conquering Phuket’s scenic trails or immersing yourself in Phuket town for a long walk, sparking up a joint rich in linalool terpenes like White Runtz. It’s akin to nature extending a hand to softly ease discomfort, allowing you to savor every holiday moment without the weight of aches.

And let’s not forget about limonene

The terpene responsible for that refreshing citrus scent found in strains like Lemon Meringue. Besides its delightful aroma, limonene has shown analgesic and anti-inflammatory benefits, making it ideal for treating headaches, stomachaches, and even arthritis. By stabilizing the nervous system and inhibiting molecules that cause inflammation, limonene can provide much-needed relief on those eventful island adventures. Blue Runtz is a strain rich in limonene.

As you journey through Phuket and the rest of Thailand, remember that pain doesn’t have to stand in your way. Explore the world of terpenes and discover the natural powers they hold. So, hike those trails, indulge in the local cuisine, and immerse yourself in beauty. Let the pain-fighting terpenes ensure you have the best experience possible as you create lasting memories.
