What Are Terpenes?
Terpenes are organic compounds that are responsible for the unique aroma, taste and colour profile of many plants, foods and other common household products. There are over 20,000 known terpenes, and over 100 of those have been identified in the cannabis plant.
While terpenes are best known for their role in enhancing the positive effects of THC and CBD (also known as the “Entourage Effect), research shows that they have potential medicinal benefits of their own. Currently, terpenes are most widely recognized for their therapeutic effect on pain, sleep and inflammation amongst many others. Terpenes are also highly effective when used in conjunction with other cannabinoid treatments by producing longer lasting relief from common ailments and chronic conditions.
