Cannabis Terpenes Create Different Flavours and Aromas
What Are Cannabis Terpenes
Cannabis terpenes are responsible for the different aromas and flavours of our favourite varieties. Amazingly, Cannabis has a wide range of aromas and flavours – researchers have uncovered over 100 different Cannabis terpenes to date.
Some of the most common Cannabis terpenes are; Myrcene, Limonene, Caryophyllene, Linalool, and Pinene. These popular terpenes were chosen o be studied by Ethan Russo in Taming THC: potential cannabis synergy and phytocannabinoid-terpenoid entourage effects.
Terpenes originally evolved as mechanism to repel predators and attract potential pollinators, but these days, in a controlled growing environment, terpenes are more associated with the smells and flavours they create.
Terpenes are found in most plants, hence Cannabis may sometimes remind us of pine needles, lemongrass, citrus, berries or even cheese.
Given Cannabis terpenes wide range of tastes and aromas, it is possible there is a variety or two that won’t specifically appeal to you. Peace Naturals takes great pride providing our clients with premium, non-irradiated terpene rich medicinal Cannabis.
Cannabis terpenes have a unique role other than just creating a specific smell or taste. The entourage effect suggests terpenes play a tremendous role in influencing Cannabis interaction with our brain and cannabinoid receptors. Some terpenes interact with the same section of your brain that Cannabinoids such as THC and CBD do. Interestingly, these terpenes may actually control how much THC your brain intakes.
Fascinatingly, Cannabis terpenes are created from the same plant glands which produce THC, CBD, and other Cannabinoids.
