#TerpeneTuesday-Caring Caryophyllene

Meet caryophyllene, the terpene so serene lol! The scientific name is beta-caryophyllene, so let's call it BCP for time's sake. BCP is an amazing terpene, for one because it doubles as a cannabinoid and two, it's the only terpene found in ALL strains of cannabis. Matter of fact, it's the terpene that drug-sniffing K-9 dogs are trained to sniff out, stay woke!

#WCW-Annamaria Enenajor

Meet Annamaria Enenajor, a partner with Ruby Shiller & Enenajor, Barristers in Toronto, Canada! Her firm's focus is civil law, criminal defense, and constitutional law. What caught my attention were her opinions on the drastic changes to Toronto drug laws in this great Viceland  article about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's new marijuana bill.

#TerpeneTuesday-Aye Pinene!

But wait, what is (a) pinene? It's one of the two types of pinene. Alpha, or a, pinene smells like pine needles or rosemary (so good on zucchini mmm). Beta, or b pinene smells like parsley, dill, hops, or basil. I'm getting hungry.
