Cannabis Terpenes

  • There are over 200 different varieties of terpenes found in different cannabis strains.
  • Terpenes are hydrocarbons (molecules made of hydrogen and carbon).
  • They secrete from the trichomes of the marijuana plant and make up the oils unique to each plant strain.
  • Terpenes are fragrant and can be identified by smell alone.
  • The plant uses them as a defensive layer against pestilence and disease, while also attracting pollinating species like bees and other insects.
