Cannabis Terpenes as Effective as Morphine without the Addiction Potential Says New Medical Study

Fortunately, a groundbreaking new study has revealed that cannabis terpenes, the aromatic compounds that give different strains their distinctive smells and flavors, are as effective as morphine when it comes to treating pain in animal models. Even more promising, the terpenes appeared to enhance morphine’s analgesic effects when used in combination, while avoiding the euphoria and addiction potential of opioids on their own.
