FIVE MOST COMMON TERPENES

Updated: Jan 1

Terpenes play an important role in the aroma and flavor of a cannabis strain, and they potentially work in synergy with cannabinoids and other cannabis plant compounds to produce psychoactive effects. But research continues to determine how beneficial terpenes are.

What are they, exactly?

Terpenes are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in plants and some animals. They’re responsible for the aromas, flavors, and even colors associated with various types of vegetation. In terms of cannabis, terpenes are what make certain strains smell or taste different from others.

They can also be processed into produce products, like cleaning solvents, pesticides, and dyes. Some even have therapeutic properties.

While nearly all plants contain terpenes, some of the more common sources people encounter them include:

  • cannabis

  • aromatic herbs, like sage and thyme

  • citrus fruits
