Understanding Cannabis Terpenes
Terpenes are a class of phytotherapeutic organic compounds created by a variety of plants—not just cannabis—responsible for the flavour and smell of the plant. Like THC and CBD, terpenes are secreted from the tiny hairs that cover the buds, called trichome glands. Over 100 different terpenes have been discovered and multiple types can be found in just one strain of cannabis. The creation of terpenes in cannabis is influenced by multiple external factors, including soil and climate. It’s the unique and varying combination of these terpenes found in each strain that creates a specific aroma and flavour, along with an individualized set of potential benefits.
