Cannabinoids are a class of molecules that work on the endocannabinoid system found in each and everyone of us. There are two kinds of cannabinoids: (1) endocannabinoids - those found in your body naturally (used to regulate a variety of bodily functions)and (2) phytocannabinoids - plant based cannabinoids that are found most abundantly in cannabis. The cannabinoids found in cannabis need activation prior to use but traditional methods of activation destroys the rest of the plant profile (namely terpenes). LACY activates these plant based cannabinoids (with no degradation) while maintaining the whole plant profile as well.
Terpenes are an important component to the overall cannabis experience, not only influencing a strain’s taste and smell but also influencing its effects on the body. Terpenes work in concert to either catalyze or inhibit effects of other compounds within the plant. This entourage effect is the unique and synergistic combination of cannabinoids and terpenes, ultimately producing the unique effects that distinguish one strain of cannabis from another. Over 100 different terpenes have been identified in cannabis. LACY is the first and only system capable of maintaining these vital compounds (and others) throughout the activation process.
