What’s the DGC Medicating On?
What’s Growing On:
01. Limonene is a chemical found in the peels of citrus fruits and in other plants. It is used to make medicine. Limonene is used to promote weight loss, prevent cancer, treat cancer, and treat bronchitis. In foods, beverages, and chewing gum, limonene is used as a flavoring.
There was a nice paper done on the entourage effects in 2010 by Ethan Russo (attached). Going off of table 2 on page 8, limonene was found to be synergistic with CBD.
I haven’t found any papers describing the exact pharmacological interaction of CBD with limonene but we do know that while CBD does not have so much of a direct effect on CB1 or CB2 receptors. At a HIGH concentration though, it does directly activate serotonin receptors (5-HT1A) which causes an anti-anxiety effect. Interestingly, the acid form of CBD (CBD-A- basically the unheated version of the molecule) has a much higher affinity to the serotonin receptors than CBD so will have the anti-anxiety effect at a lower dose- one of the reasons I’ve been juicing all my defoliation.
Mice experiments and I believe now human experiments have shown limonene to increase serotonin levels (also through activating the 5-HT1A receptors) in the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus. So, putting those together, limonene is likely working to chill you out much as CBD does. Limonene has quite high inhaled absorption as well (about 70%).
Also something I find quite interesting, CBD when present in high enough concentration to THC has been shown to eliminate the “induced congnitive and memory deficits” from smoking cannabis (short term memory will improve). Anecdotally I have noted this when I will add limonene as well so it is likely again involving limonene’s activation of the serotonin receptors in the hippocampus (the brain’s memory creation centre).
Let me know if you have any questions!
