What Are Terpenes? | Cannabis for Beginners
By now you may have heard about the cannabis plant’s most well-known compounds, THC and CBD, however, there’s more to marijuana than just its cannabinoids. Terpenes are aromatic compounds that give plants their flavor and aroma. Found in cannabis and other plants, terpenes have their own therapeutic effects, such as anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, and anti-depressive properties. Terpenes like pinene, limonene, and linalool are found in cannabis and other plants like pine trees, citrus, and lavender respectively, and will dictate the texture of your high. For example, even if two strains of cannabis have the same exact cannabinoid ratio, you can have two vastly different experiences, based on the terpenes present in the strains.
