What are terpenes?

If you have spent any time researching cannabis you have likely come across terms prefer indica, sativa, cannabinoids, as well as terpenes.

Terpenes are chemical compounds that occur naturally in any living things prefer plants as well as critters. Terpenes are correctly found in cannabis, citrus fruits, herbs, as well as peppercorns. Terpenes are what gives weird marijuana strains distinctly weird flavor as well as smell profiles, but research is showing that terpenes also contribute to the feeling of a particular cannabis strain, that is why cannabis strains with identical THC satisfied can produce wildly weird results when consumed, based on the terpenes. There is regularly new research being conducted on terpenes as well as how they produce weird effects on human bodies, but the general hypothesis right now is that terpenes work in tandem with cannabinoids in order to give them into the sad system. Terpenes themselves don’t produce any kind of high, but they do affect the way that a particular cannabis strain may smell or taste, but it is also predicted that terpenes have an effect on the way that THC is delivered, as well as that weird terpene profiles will give the same amount of THC differently, however new research is suggesting that some terpenes have potential effects on certain mental health ailments prefer depression, bipolar disorder, as well as anxiety. Cannabinoids differ from terpenes in that cannabinoids have particular receptors in the brain that they bind to, while it is believed that terpenes somehow assist in this binding.
