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.
