Did you know Limonene is the second most abundant terpene in all cannabis strains that have been tested so far? It gives a fresh aroma and several strains have their names inspired by this smell. But even so, some cannabis strains actually have no Limonene at all in them. Limonene is not only found in cannabis, but in a wide range of other plants. It’s one of the most abundant terpenes in nature as well, not just in cannabis. . Limonene is most commonly know to be found in citrus fruits,
and is used to add a fresh smell and/or add a extra medisinal use to a lot of different products.
Limonene has many therapeutic purposes, it’s long known to improve mood and reduce stress. It also seem to have antifungal and antibacterial properties, according to studies. It might even be beneficial for some cancer treatments as it has been documented as helping reducing tumors with high amounts and have shown no toxicity. . There are many ancient remedies from all over the world containing Limonene, and many of these are still being used by people who swear by them.
Getting a good amount Limonene in your cannabis oil can be very beneficial, and you can also add more along your treatment to boost it’s properties even more.
Here are some more benefits:
Some Limonene Studies:
Limonene protects osteoblasts against methylglyoxal-derived adduct formation by regulating glyoxalase, oxidative stress, and mitochondrial function.
.- These results demonstrate that limonene may prevent the development of diabetic osteopathy.
Inhibition by D-limonene of gastric carcinogenesis induced by N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine in Wistar rats.
-The multiple antitumorigenic effects of limonene are attainable at a high therapeutic ratio, suggesting that limonene and related monoterpenes may be efficacious in the chemoprevention and chemotherapy of human malignancies.
Evaluation of acute toxicity of a natural compound (+)-limonene epoxide and its anxiolytic-like action.
-These findings suggest that acute administration of the (+)-limonene epoxide exerts an anxiolytic-like effect on mice, and it could serve as a new approach for the treatment anxiety, since it practically does not produce toxic effects.
Inhibition of DMBA-induced mammary cancer by the monoterpene d-limonene. ( Pets)
-For example, rats fed 10 000 p.p.m. of d-limonene had a 72% reduction in mammary tumors when compared to controls at 18 weeks post DMBA treatment. In addition to inhibiting the appearance of mammary tumors, d-limonene was also found to cause the regression of frank mammary tumors. No toxicity was evident in these rats even at the highest d-limonene dose.
Inhibition by d-limonene of gastric carcinogenesis induced by N-methyl-N′-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine in Wistar rats
-These findings indicate that limonene inhibits the development of gastric cancers through increased apoptosis and decreased DNA synthesis of gastric cancers, but not through ras oncoprotein plasma membrane association.

Cannabis and cancer treatments, a very promising field. As we have personal friends that have used cannabis to heal, we are believers. But there are many factors that play a part, and they might not be the same from person to person.

modulate tumor growth in different in vitro and in vivo cancer models, however, these anticancer
effects appears to be dependent on cancer type and drug dose....."

Is all Cannabis Science equal?
Project CBD just released an article "Cannabis Science: What to Believe?"
... This is worth a read.
"A valid study can inform, enrich, and save lives. Poor studies can create fear and ignorance. The bias can lean either pro or con. Either way detracts from our understanding of cannabis and our ability to provide patients with the best care. I obtained a copy of the original article and reviewed it carefully....."
"Most health care providers know little about the medical use of cannabis; they are not taught the endocannabinoid system in medical schools and many avoid this sensitive topic altogether. Patients are educating themselves the best they can by reading news articles and reviewing scientific studies made available online, but not everything we read is accurate and not every study is well-designed. Here are a few guidelines to help you tell the difference between valid information and that which should be taken with a grain of salt." Read more .......

The 10 Cannabinoids in Cannabis You Should Know
The more we learn about cannabis, the more apparent the plant’s complexities and effects on our bodies. One thing we do know for sure is that cannabis contains dozens of chemical compounds called cannabinoids, all tasked with special jobs. The exact number of cannabinoids is yet to be confirmed, but common consensus among researchers is that there are at least 100.
