Terpenes

Terpenes are the aromatic compounds in plants and flowers that endow cannabis with its unique scent. They originate in the same glands of the cannabis plant as THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. There are over 140 known terpenes found in cannabis, with each plant strain tends to have unique terpene compositions. Secreted in the same glands that produce, terpenes are the pungent oils that color cannabis varieties with distinctive flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine.

Terpenes can actively affect those brain receptors and the way they work. Terpenes have been found to influence how much THC enters the brain through the blood-brain barrier. Most importantly, terpenes can directly influence the brain’s neurotransmitters in various ways. The medical efficacy of a wide variety of terpenes is undeniable, including their ability to reduce illnesses, relieve depression, and mitigate inflammation.

However, not all types of terpenes work the same. Some types may influence the brain in a way as to relax us while others have the opposite effect, lifting our mood and energy levels. These are the common terpene profiles found in our products.
