What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants, but they are particularly significant in cannabis.

Moreover, beyond sensory appeal, terpenes interact with cannabinoids, enhancing therapeutic effects via the entourage effect.

Common Terpenes and Their Effects

Let’s explore some of the most prevalent terpenes found in cannabis and their known effects:

  • Myrcene: Often found in mangoes, myrcene is a terpene that delivers a sedative, relaxing effect. It’s perfect for those seeking relief from insomnia and inflammation.
  • Limonene: With its vibrant citrus scent, limonene is uplifting and may help to alleviate stress and elevate mood.
  • Caryophyllene: Known for its spicy, peppery notes, caryophyllene offers potential gastrointestinal benefits and stress relief.
