Terpenes are organic compounds found in cannabis that contribute to its aroma, flavor, and potential therapeutic effects. They are produced in the same glands as cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD. Terpenes are not unique to cannabis and can also be found in various plants, fruits, and herbs, giving them their characteristic scents. Research suggests that terpenes may interact with cannabinoids to produce synergistic effects known as the entourage effect. Each terpene has its own unique profile and potential benefits, such as anti-inflammatory, analgesic, or sedative properties. Understanding terpenes can help consumers choose cannabis strains that best suit their preferences and desired effects.
