The Importance Of Terpenes

Terpenes are the primary components of essential oils — aromatics responsible for a plant's regeneration, oxygenation, and immunity defence.

Essential oils, extracted from a variety of plants and foods, have been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years.

So far scientists have discovered around 20,000 terpenes. Approximately 150 have been discovered in the cannabis plant, but we will be covering the main 5 terpenes.

They are what gives an orange its citrusy smell. They give pine trees their unique aroma. They’re even responsible for the relaxing effects in lavender. They are chemicals that determine how things smell.

But wait. You thought that cannabinoids were the compounds in the cannabis plant that caused healing, right? Yes, but it’s been discovered that terpenes can play a big role in that as well. In fact, cannabinoids and terpenes work together in something called the entourage effect.

The entourage effect simply means that cannabinoids such as CBD, along with the hundreds of other compounds including terpenes are meant to work together. It’s the whole plant that does the best job, not just a single compound. While relief can come from just CBD oil, whole plant therapy has been the most effective and powerful use.
