What Does “Sensual Awareness” Really Mean?
We know you’re anxious to get to the juicy details, but it’s really important to understand what we mean by “sensual awareness.” Does it mean...
The easiest way to explain it is by looking at the differences between sexuality and sensuality. Just to be clear, terpenes definitely fall in the latter category.
Sensuality is anything related to the body and your five senses. While it CAN include bodily or sensory pleasure, that doesn’t necessarily mean the same thing as sexuality.
For example, enjoying the way a silk shirt feels is sensual. So is taking pleasure in the taste of a well-made cocktail, enjoying music, or the scent of your favorite cologne. So, sensuality doesn’t necessarily have to involve sexuality whatsoever.
Admittedly, there’s sometimes overlap between what you might consider sensual or sexual. But everyone is different and the psychology behind human sexuality is too complex to make any broad generalizations.
So, can you use terpenes to concoct the ultimate love potion? Absolutely not. However, you CAN use terpenes to promote more sensual awareness. That might mean reduced stress, more sensory awareness, or mood elevation. In the most basic sense, terpenes can promote awareness of the many pleasures the world has to offer.
Which Terpenes Help You Feel “In The Mood?”
Before we jump in too deep, we want to remind everyone that our terpenes are cannabis free and 100% legal. However, we do work very hard to isolate the specific terpene profiles of popular strains so both cannabis consumers and non-cannabis consumers can enjoy and benefit from them.
Now that that's out of the way, let’s talk terpene blends. The following cannabis strains have unique terpene blends that promote a variety of sensual effects. While you’re probably familiar with several of them, a few might surprise you…
Lovers of this strain say it’s a sensual hit because of its creative energy and body relaxation. Considering its terpene make-up, that’s no surprise. The dominant terpenes that make up its juicy, sweet flavor are Beta-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, Limonene, and Alpha-Pinene. The first two are all about relaxation, pain-relief, and basically chilling out. The last two, however, give this blend a boost of energy, creativity, and focus.
Strawberry Cough is perfect for exciting nights on the town or stimulating nights in. It’s uplifting and energetic with a creative, chill vibe. The strain this blend comes from is Sativa-dominant, so we’d recommend this blend for more active events.
While you might not initially think a blend with such an intense gassy aroma would be sensual, you’d be wrong. This is another get-up-and-GO blend with plenty of energy and fast-acting effects. Chemdawg’s dominant terpenes are Valencene, Beta-Caryophyllene, Limonene, and Alpha-Caryophyllene. This gives it an in-your-face flavor that’s sharp and earthy while still being herbal.
If you’re looking to lose yourself in the music and dance the night away, Chemdawg is the blend for you. Think cerebral with palpable body relaxation, and energetic with a splash of creativity. Basically, be prepared to blast off.
Looking to let your creative juices flow? Then GSC is going to blow your mind. The strain this blend comes from is an Indica-dominant hybrid, but don’t expect it to put you to sleep any time soon. The dominant terpenes in this blend (Beta-Caryophyllene, Limonene, Alpha-Humulene, and Linalool) will relax your body and send your mind into space.
Its sweet, earthy, and floral scent is the perfect antidote for stress and lack of imagination. However, this is definitely more appropriate for intimate settings. That way you can safely indulge in the munchies and any fantasies that may pop up from the comfort of your own home.
If your daily responsibilities make it hard for you to unplug and relax, you could definitely use a mid-afternoon Mimosa pick-me-up. This sunny blend has a fruit-forward aroma that’s sweetly citric with subtle earthy flavors. Its unique blend of dominant terpenes, however, is what will help you let go and tune in to all manner of earthly delights.
Terpenes like d-limonene, myrcene, beta-caryophyllene, and linalool give this blend an effervescent, bubbly feeling. It’s euphoric and energetic while still managing to relieve chronic fatigue or pain that might be getting in the way of being your best self. If you could use a care-free afternoon to recharge and reconnect, look no further than Mimosa.
No, this blend won’t have you hearing wedding bells. But you’ll quickly say YES to the euphoric rush of this terpene blend. Beta-Caryophyllene, Limonene, Alpha-Humulene, and Linalool give Wedding Cake its classic dessert-like sweetness rounded out perfectly with subtle notes of rustic pepper and cedar.
It might not sound all that earth-shattering, but the comforting feel of this blend will make you want to sit back and happily observe the world around you. For anyone who struggles to “live in the moment,” Wedding Cake will help you unplug and connect to your environment. Luckily, when it comes to this blend, the honeymoon phase never really ends.
