WHAT ARE TERPENES?

Terpenes are naturally occurring chemical compounds which you can find in plants and certain animals. They're what distinguish the aromas, flavours, and even colours associated with various types of vegetation. In terms of cannabis, terpenes are what make different strains smell or taste different from others. Plants produce terpenes, largely as a defence mechanism to deter herbivorous predators, however; in humans terpenes are capable of producing effects on the mind & body.
