Introduction to Terpenes

Terpenes are natural compounds found in a variety of plants, including cannabis, that give them their unique smells and flavours. They do not possess psychoactive properties and do not induce a  high” like cannabinoids such as THC. Instead, terpenes offer a range of potential therapeutic effects, contributing to the overall experience and possible health benefits of cannabis consumption.

Understanding Terpenes and Their Effects
Terpenes not only provide distinctive aromas and flavours to different cannabis strains but also play a significant role in influencing the effects of cannabinoids through what’s known as the entourage effect*. This synergy enhances the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids, making them more effective when combined with terpenes.

The Encourage Effect

*The entourage effect is a term used to describe the synergistic interaction between various compounds found in cannabis, including cannabinoids like THC and CBD, as well as terpenes and other phytochemicals. In simple terms, it is like teamwork among the different parts of a cannabis plant. Imagine you have a basketball team with different players. Each player has their own skills, but when they work together, they can achieve more than if they played alone.

In cannabis, there are different compounds like THC, CBD, and terpenes. When these compounds are used together, they can make each other’s effects stronger. It’s like they’re helping each other out to provide better results than if they were used separately. This teamwork is called the entourage effect, and it’s one reason why using whole cannabis products might be more effective than using just one compound on its own.
