Terpenes are aromatic molecules and cannabis has about 200 of them. In combination with cannabinoids such as CBD, CBDa, CBG and CBN, they ensure the so-called “Entourage Effect”, i. e. they go hand-in-hand with the actual effect on humans and animals.
Terpenes are responsible for the smell we feel when we smell a certain type of cannabis. But also for the effect: there are lavender terpenes that leave a calming impression and citrus terpenes that spread an invigorating flair.
Nature has established it not without reason that these terpenes are present and it is only through these flavours that the spectrum of cannabis varieties is fully diversified.
