Chemotype refers to the chemical composition of a cannabis plant, specifically the profile and concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes. It plays a crucial role in determining the effects and potential benefits of a particular cannabis strain. Cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, interact with the body's endocannabinoid system, while terpenes contribute to the aroma and flavor of the plant. Different chemotypes can result in varying psychoactive and therapeutic effects. By understanding the chemotype of a cannabis strain, cultivators can tailor their cultivation practices to optimize the desired chemical profile. It is important for consumers and researchers to consider chemotype when selecting cannabis products for specific purposes.
