CBD TERPENES – OILS AND CARTRIDGES
Cannabis, hemp, and a variety of other plants, fruits, and botanicals produce natural aromatic flavorful compounds known as terpenes. Commonly referred to as the essence of the plant, terpenes are organic compounds that were initially developed by plants in order to attract helpful pollinating insects while also warding off many of the herbivores that eat them.
These fragrant, flavor-filled compounds also give so many different plants and fruits their characteristic fragrance and taste. Therefore, terpenes are what make cannabis or hemp so “dank” in its flavor and aroma.
However, terpenes are not just a type of flavor compound. They also provide beneficial synergistic effects for physical and mental health when combined with CBD and other cannabinoids. This is why it is important to incorporate natural terpenes into your CBD supplementation to achieve therapeutic effects.
