What are Cannabis Terpenes, exactly?

Cannabis terpenes are natural chemical compounds present in plants and some animals. They contribute to the scents, tastes, and even colors found in different kinds of plants. In cannabis, terpenes are the key elements that give each strain its unique aroma and flavor.

What do Cannabis Terpenes do?

Terpenes help protect plants from extreme weather and predators. While their effects on humans are still being studied, they’re gaining attention in the cannabis community. Researchers and users alike are now using terpenes to categorize cannabis products and anticipate their effects.

It’s believed that the mix of dominant terpenes in a strain, along with its cannabinoid levels—like THC and CBD—interact to create the distinct experiences associated with different strains.
