What Are Terpenoids And What Do They Do?

March 3, 2016 -

Secreted in the same glands that produce cannabinoids like THC and CBD, terpenes are the pungent oils that color cannabis varieties with distinctive flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine. Terpenes work together with cannabinoids to offer an array of effects and therapeutic benefits known as the entourage effect. The most fascinating characteristic of terpenes is their ability to interact synergistically with other compounds in the plant, like cannabinoids.

Over 100 different terpenes have been identified in the cannabis plant! Some of the most common cannabis terpenes are alpha-pinene, myrcene, limonene, linalool and Caryophyllene. These terpenes are often found in common foods and herbs like peppermint, rosemary, lavender, fruit rinds, mango, and thyme!
