From light flowery scents to heavy diesel odors to luxurious cherry pie smells fresh from the oven, different types of cannabis contain different aromatic compounds. These compounds that determine the distinctive odor and flavor of different cannabis plants are called terpenes. Cannabis plants contain over 150 naturally occurring terpenes, although most of them are in very small amounts. They are found in the trichomes of the female cannabis plant. The more prominent terpenes give cannabis strains their signature scents. Not only do terpenes give cannabis its scent, but they also produce a variety of effects that can be therapeutic, medicinal, anti-inflammatory, and mood-enhancing.
We’ve Got the Terpenes You’re Looking For
Cannabis strains are grouped into two categories, based on traits like taste, aroma, appearance, and texture, along with the effects the plant gives when consumed. The effects are caused by terpenes, which are responsible for the effects that your favorite cannabis strain provides.
