Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants, including cannabis, that contribute to their distinct scents and flavors. In cannabis, terpenes play a crucial role not only in providing unique aromas and tastes but also in influencing the effects of different strains. Each terpene has its own set of characteristics and potential benefits, ranging from relaxation and stress relief to increased focus and energy.

Terpenes are located in the trichomes of cannabis plants—the tiny, crystal-like structures that cover the buds and leaves. These compounds are produced in response to environmental factors like light, temperature, and humidity, and serve to protect the plant from pests and predators.

Cannabis plants produce a wide variety of terpenes, including myrcene, limonene, and pinene, each contributing to the plant’s overall profile. Understanding terpenes can help consumers choose strains that best suit their desired effects and experiences.
