Let’s Talk About Terpenes :)

What are terpenes? 

Terpenes are organic hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of plants and more. For example, you can find terpenes in the rinds of citrus fruits, black pepper, and pine needles or pine tree sap.


What do terpenes do?

Terpenes are responsible for creating the unique aroma of each individual cannabis strain.  Think of terpenes as the genetic blueprint for the smell and taste profile your cannabis will have; in addition, terpenes do more than determine the scent blueprint, they also provide therapeutic benefits and they can also modify how much of each cannabinoid is absorbed.


Why Use Terpenes?

Terpenes can effect both your body and your mind.  Specific scents can trigger certain feelings in our bodies. For example, peppermint is awakening and uplifting, while lavender is calming and soothing. 

Over 100 different terpenes have been identified in the cannabis plant, and every strain tends toward a unique terpene type and composition. A strain like Mimosa and its descendants will likely have a discernible orange-like smell, and Chocolate Hashberry offspring often inherit the earthy tones of chocolate and the fruity smell of berries.
