Cannabis Candles

The luxury Cannabis scented candles to buy right now

A few years ago, the idea of Cannabis scented candles would definitely not have been on anyone’s radar but they’re here and giving us a new way to scent our homes.

Now before you start to worry that lighting a cannabis candle is going to make your home smell like a seedy pot den and have everyone reeling around getting high, fear not, that’s not the aim here.

The cannabis in your candle will be cannabis essential oil which is made from the flowers and upper leaves of the hemp plant and will contain minute if any, traces of THC (the compound that gets you high).

The oil’s benefits and the scent will come from the Terpenes and for the record, cannabis essential oil contains around 140 of them. In case you’re wondering what a terpene is, it’s the aromatic compound found in many plants which create the scents we associate with them for example, Rosemary and Lavender.

The aromatic oils found in the Terpenes give cannabis varieties distinctive flavours that we’re actually all familiar with like Pine and Lavender.

Where it gets interesting is that some terpenes are also good for promoting things like relaxation and stress relief, while others can help to promote focus.

For example, Myrcene is believed to promote calm and is also found in Thyme, Mango and Lemongrass whilst Limonene is found in lemon and orange rind and is believed to provide anxiety and stress relief.

Research has also shown that cannabis essential oil can have mood-enhancing effects on the brain and the oils will also be combined with other essential oils for an overall aromatic scent experience.

So now that we’ve got the science bit over and done with, let’s take a look at the cannabis candles ready and waiting to add a new kind of fragrance to your home.
