Cannabis terpenes are organic compounds found in cannabis plants that contribute to the plant's unique aroma and flavor. Terpenes are produced by many different plants and can be found in various herbs, fruits, and flowers.
In cannabis, terpenes are primarily produced in the same glands as cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD. There are over 100 different terpenes found in cannabis, each with its own unique profile of aroma and potential therapeutic effects.
Terpenes are thought to play a role in the overall effects of cannabis by modulating the way cannabinoids interact with the body's endocannabinoid system. They may also have therapeutic benefits of their own, including anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and analgesic properties.
Some of the most common terpenes found in cannabis include myrcene, limonene, pinene, caryophyllene, linalool, and humulene. Different strains of cannabis can have varying levels and combinations of terpenes, which can influence the aroma, flavor, and potential effects of the plant.
