Ter­penes are the fra­grant oils that give plants their aroma, and sim­i­lar to es­sen­tial oils used in aro­mather­apy, they can change a per­son’s en­ergy lev­els, mood and more. Upothe­cary, an On­tario-based line of bath prod­ucts, takes its in­spi­ra­tion from ter­penes found in cannabis, which can range from cit­rusy scents to chamomile, laven­der and black pep­per.

The sativa sham­poo fea­tures ter­penes like limonene, ter­pino­lene and pinene – or lemon, parsnips and pine, re­spec­tively – mak­ing it as in­vig­o­rat­ing as a morn­ing jolt of caf­feine. Hemp seed pro­tein and cal­en­dula help to nat­u­rally strengthen and soothe strands. Fin­ish off your shower with Upothe­cary’s indica conditioner, which con­tains ground­ing aro­mas of laven­der, chamomile and ylang ylang to ease your mind.

While it’s not quite a wake ’n’ bake, it might be the next best thing. $15/237 ml at Upothe­cary (upothe­cary.ca)
