You Mean Cannabis Is More Than Indica & Sativa?
Terpenes are the reason for the pungent aroma and bold flavors of cannabis. They are organic compounds found in a wide range of plants including thyme, hops, and citrus fruits, and an integral ingredient of essential oils. Diesel, pine, woody, spicy, herbal, tropical, citrus, skunky, and coffee are some of the more common cannabis aromas and flavors. Found inside the cannabis trichomes, terpenes interact with cannabinoids and influence effects. This is referred to as the entourage effect. By working together, the ideal combination of cannabis compounds will prove more effective and potent than an isolated compound.

Get to Know Terpenes with Lux Leaf Dispensary

Terpene content is unique to each cannabis cultivar and can either enhance or suppress the effects of cannabinoids. Although we are still learning about them, growing evidence supports the belief that they can temper the psychoactive effects of THC while also increasing therapeutic benefits.

So far, hundreds of different terpenes have been identified in cannabis. Here are a few of the most prominent:

  • Myrcene provides an earthy aroma and is one of the most prevalent cannabis terpenes. It is associated with anti-inflammatory, antioxidizing, and pain-relieving properties.
  • Caryophyllene is another predominant cannabis terpene. It offers an herbal aroma and is sought after for wound-healing, pain-relieving, and anti-inflammatory benefits.
  • Pinene is found in pine trees and most conifers as well as cannabis and is easily recognized for its piney aroma. It can be helpful for anti-inflammatory properties and may prove beneficial in preventing ulcers and improving airflow to the lungs.
  • Limonene is found in citrus fruits and provides cannabis with a citrus-like aroma. Studies indicate that this terpene offers antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties. It protects the liver, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal tissues.
  • Humulene showcases a hoppy aroma and can be advantageous as a pain reliever and topical anti-inflammatory.
  • Linalool is known for its floral aroma and can work to reduce inflammation, inhibit the growth of fungal infections, and provide anti-anxiety, anticonvulsant, and sedative effects.
