Medical Benefits of Taffie
Taffie strain is a hybrid of two strains with high amounts of THC and terpenes. Therefore, the strain has great potential to treat numerous medical conditions.
Patients reported that Taffie was able to treat the following medical conditions:
Terpenes are essential oils that work synergistically with cannabinoids to enhance their effectiveness. The aromatic organic compounds hold numerous medical benefits and strengthen your “high.” Terpenes work together with cannabinoids in the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the body to modulate and boost the effects of one another. Therefore, terpenes can either decrease or increase the effects of THC as well as other chemicals that interact with the body’s ECS.
Apart from enhancing the effects of cannabinoids in the body and their medical benefits, terpenes give Taffie strain its natural flavor. Taffie strain contains a great balance of terpenes including Caryophyllene, Humulene, Limonene, Myrcene, Terpinolene, Beta-Pinene, Linalool, and Ocimene.
Myrcene is one of the most common terpene in cannabis strains though it is not found in hemp textiles. The terpene has a smell that is similar to cloves. It is a powerful antibiotic, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory. It acts in synergy with THC to increase the psychoactive potential.
Moreover, the terpene blocks the action of aflatoxin B, cytochrome as well as other pro-mutagenic carcinogens. It also offers calming, sedative, antispasmodic and relaxing effect.
Caryophyllene is well known for its spicy flavor and its therapeutic effects. It is an effective remedy for toothache and a local analgesic and anti-inflammatory. Besides, it has anti-fungal properties and selectively activates the CB2 (Cannabinoid 2) receptors.
Limonene is responsible for the typical citrus smell that is found in Taffie strain. This family of terpenes has antibacterial, anticarcinogenic and antifungal properties. It also prevents RAS gene deterioration, which leads to the development of tumors. Therefore, it protects against the carcinogen in the smoke and Aspergillus.
It also increases systolic pressure almost instantly as it easily and quickly penetrates the blood-brain barrier. Thus, Limonene is used to improve mental focus, sex drive, attention, and well-being and sometimes it is used to treat anxiety and depression. It also stimulates the immune system and reduces the unpleasantness of gastric acid.
Alpha and Beta-Pinene
Pinene is a local antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and expectorant and bronchodilator. Helps improve the memory as it acts as an inhibitor of Acetylcholinesterase, which prevents the destruction of molecules that transmit information.
This compound has a floral smell that is similar to spring flowers and lavender. It produces a sedative effect and has a calming action, which makes it efficient anxiolytic. It also has anti-epileptic and analgesic properties.
