The unique manufacturing process our company developed enables a carrier base of certified organic, non-GMO Vegetable Glycerin (VG) to be infused with whole-plant extracts. These are made from certified organic herbs, spices, flowers, barks and roots that contain compounds from the largest class of chemicals in all of living nature: lipids.
The non-fatty lipids that cause most plant aromas and colors are called terpenes, terpenoids and flavonoids. These serve important functions in maintaining every human’s sustainable wellness. Mammalian stress-reduction, immunological and longevity systems have always been tied directly to and dependent upon terpenoids and flavonoids.
Botanic eLiquids’ proprietary formulation and eliquid manufacturing processes enable the rapid and substantial bloodstream uptake of terpenoids, flavonoids and other bioactives such as Kavalactones, including their ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. This activates proven terpenoid & flavonoid efficacy.
Wellness communities are rapidly being educated about the inherent anti-stress and antidepressant qualities of terpenes like limonene and pinene when breathed in at concentrated but naturally healthy levels – be that via an orange grove, pine forest or Personal Vaporizer (PV). A great deal of that education has come from the explosion of the medical cannabis market on the West Coast and Rocky Mountains of America.
Our five years of R&D conclusively shows that famous culinary herbs (e.g. Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme) and other bioactives such as Kava Kava rhizome have positive therapeutic effects when self-titrated through well-designed vaping gear readily available worldwide. Furthermore, modern science confirms traditional observations that terpenoids and flavonoids can synergize well to promote health. Tannins – a type of flavonoid – in good tea and terpenoids in good incense are an age-old spiritual pair. Ingestion and vaping of bioactives are distinct but sister fields.
While a great many terpenes act as a sedative upon the human system, some instead quicken our metabolism. Others – including the most prevalent family, the pinenes – are antidepressant. Many are anxiolytic along a wide spectrum, mitigating both environmentally and internally caused stresses with rapid and strong anti-panic potential.
Terpenes have developed over hundreds of millions of years in the plant kingdom. Their primary purpose has been to deal with stress – all types of stress: lack of water, being buffeted by wind, attacks from insects, baking in the sun, poor soil, old age.
As mammals evolved, they did so by breathing in both oxygen and terpenes emitted from plants all around them. Of course, it was very special plants like pines and mints that created unique aromatic environments many animals sought and co-evolved with.
Evolutionary biologists suggest that mammals used to create terpenes themselves but largely quit producing them, as being surrounded by plant aromas fulfilled the antistress needs required for longevity. All mammals including humans immediately assimilate aromatic terpenoids by using all of their heads’ systems in unison – mouth, nose, sinuses, tongue, throat, upper lungs, blood and lymph channels, brain ventricles, and endocrine hormonal system including mid-brain glands.
Our powerful odorant neuro-receptor system is activated via upper respiratory pathways that affect many other neuro-chemical systems in our body-mind complex.
Human cultures everywhere use terpene-rich plants – herbs, spices, pines, citruses, flowers – as a natural extension of health. It bears repeating: Terpenes holistically integrate with our neuro-chemical odorant receptors for the simple reason that they coevolved together. To be in a state of optimal, natural health, our bodies expect and need terpene activation. Not only do our tasting and smelling sensations emerge from these receptors, but so do substantially euphoric feelings of stress relief and body-mind integration.
