The scents, flavors, and nuances of your cannabis experience.
To date, more than 100 different terpenes have been identified in cannabis, and the terpene profile of each strain is responsible for much of each plant’s unique characteristics.
Much like the scents of other flowers, terpenes evolved as part of the plants’ desire to attract pollinating entities or to repel predatory ones.
Not only do terpenes influence the smell and taste of cannabis, but they are also known to have a synergistic effect with the cannabinoids.
Cannabis has a myriad of effects based on the complex profiles of the cannabinoids and the type and amount of terpenes
Pine needles, lemongrass, peppermint, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, mangoes, lilacs, and grapes are just a few of the distinct terpene aromas produced in cannabis.
Combined with the cannabinoids of the plant, the effects range from energizing to relaxing. Creativity, pain and stress relief, mood elevation, and anxiety reduction are just a few of the varied effects to be found and enjoyed.
Craft breeding of cannabinoid and terpene specific profiles can be custom tailored into a strain of cannabis that exactly offers the effects you desire. In much the same manner that medicines react differently for different people, cannabis and their terpene profiles can also work slightly differently for each individual. These differences are what drive growers to hybridize and continue their quest for a magical strain…one that checks all of the boxes and has all of the characteristics they desire. The benefit of this growth is the plethora of choices available to consumers! We no longer have to settle for whatever we can find, we can search out the effects we desire and the cannabis that will deliver.
Enjoy your exploration of this varied terpene treasure trove, we are truly fortunate to have so many choices!
