What are cannabis terpenes?

Nov 3, 2017 | News - Featured, Peace News

Terpenes are the chemical compounds that are responsible for the different smells and flavours of your favourite cannabis varieties. Amazingly, cannabis has a wide range of aromas and flavours, and researchers have uncovered more than 100 different terpenes.

Some of the most common terpenes in cannabis are; Myrcene, Limonene, Caryophyllene, Linalool, and Pinene. Researchers believe they function as a mechanism to repel predators and attract potential pollinators, just as they do with many other plants. That’s why the scent or flavour of cannabis may sometimes remind us of pine needles, lemongrass, citrus, berries or even cheese. 

To find out which terpenes are most predominant in each strain, read the product details in the shopping portal or our product page.
