Terpenes are aromatic oils that are secreted in the same glands with cannabinoids like THC and CBD and play a key role in differentiating the effects of various cannabis strains.
They contribute to the distinctive flavours and fragrances of cannabis ranging from citrus to pine, to berry to mint.
Some terpenes promote relaxation and stress-relief, while others promote focus and acuity. Terpenes can add great depth to the connoisseurship of cannabis.
Most importantly, terpenes may offer additional medical value as they mediate our body’s interaction with therapeutic cannabinoids.
Terpenes are powerful antioxidants, responsible for regeneration, oxygenation, and immune defense.
They offer neuro-protection and chronic disease management, as well as erasing cancerous cellular information and prevent cancer cells from proliferating.
Rather than simply seeking the flat psychoactivity of THC, connoisseurs are seeking more nuanced results associated with cannabis, such as creativity, stress relief, and anti-depressant qualities influenced by these other compounds.
