Did you know that Terpenes are responsible for giving cannabis its rich, strong aromas and distinct scents like earthy, pine, fruity, & spicy? ????
In short, terpenes are naturally-occurring compounds found in plants and are also found in various quantities and combinations in cannabis. These compounds provide the flavor/scents and play a large role in the different effects found in various strains, adding potential therapeutic value to cannabis, based on their unique medicinal properties. ??
There are also over 100 different terpenes found in cannabis and all have a range of different effects. Some terpenes might promote relaxation and stress-relief, while others potentially promote focus and acuity.
Common terpenes are Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Limonene, and Pinene. FYI, Terpenes are by no means unique to cannabis; they can be found in many other herbs, fruits, and plants as well.?
In our new series MotherMary TerpTalk, we will be highlighting different terpenes and their effects.
