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.
