What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are compounds found in all sorts of plant life including Cannabis!

Terpenes are responsible for the smells and flavors that make up each different cannabis strain and contribute to their effects.

Just like how certain smells from other plants can illicit certain feelings, memories, or experiences, the same is true for terpenes in Cannabis.
