What is a terpene? It is an aromatic organic hydrocarbon which can be found in my plants & even some insects. Plants will develop terpenes to ward of potential herbivores that may eat them but also to attract helpful pollinators. Cannabis is naturally very high in terpenes & is why it has such a strong smell, in fact cannabis contains over 200 terpenes, we will look at a few of the of the more popular ones below.

But terpenes are not only found in the cannabis plant & if you are familiar with essential oils you will already have some experience with terpenes. They can be found in very high quantities in various essential oils.

 

 

Thanks for reading.

Love Hannabis
