Terpenes are fragrant oils found in nature – think extracts like lemon, lavender, or vanilla.
Cannabis terpenes are those found in cannabis plants. Not all are exclusive to cannabis. Pinene, for example, can be found in cannabis, pine trees, and other herbs.
Consider terpenes like aromatherapy. Their scents can be bright and floral, or musky and spicy. Every strain has different combinations of terpenes, giving them their distinctive aromas.
Just as a wine sommelier notes aromas, an experienced cannabis sommelier identifies terpenes.
