Terpenes are organic compounds found in various plants, including cannabis. They are responsible for the distinct aromas and flavors associated with different cannabis strains. These compounds also play a significant role in the entourage effect, which refers to the synergistic interaction between cannabinoids like THC and CBD, and terpenes. Each terpene has unique properties and potential therapeutic benefits. For example, the terpene limonene is known for its citrusy scent and may have mood-enhancing and stress-relieving effects. Other common terpenes found in cannabis include myrcene, pinene, and linalool. Understanding terpenes can help individuals make informed choices when selecting cannabis strains based on desired effects and flavors.
