What Are Terpenes and How Do They Affect Your Cannabis Experience?

Welcome to the Ashario Cannabis blog, where we keep you informed on all things cannabis-related for our valued community of cannabis enthusiasts and consumers. Today, we have a very special, in-depth look at terpenes: what are they, how they affect your cannabis experience, and some examples of the most common terpenes found in cannabis.

What Are Terpenes?

Terpenes are organic compounds found in various plants, including cannabis. They are the primary ingredients that give plants their unique aroma and flavor. In cannabis, terpenes play a vital role in providing a distinctive scent and taste, and they have recently been found to interact with our endocannabinoid system to impact how we experience the effects of cannabis.

How Do Terpenes Affect Your Cannabis Experience?

Not only do terpenes give cannabis its characteristic smell and taste, but they also contribute to the overall experience and effect. The interaction between terpenes, cannabinoids (such as THC and CBD), and other compounds in the plant - known as the "entourage effect" - influences the way cannabis affects you. The entourage effect is said to enhance or modulate certain effects of cannabinoids, depending on the unique terpene profile in the cannabis strain.

Examples of Terpenes Found in Cannabis

Let's take a look at some commonly found terpenes in cannabis strains and their potential benefits:

  • Myrcene: Myrcene is the most common terpene found in cannabis, known for its earthy and musky aroma. This terpene is believed to have potential beneficial effects such as pain relief, anti-inflammatory properties, and even relaxation.
  • Limonene: Limonene emits a strong citrus aroma and is found in many strains. It is known for its potential mood-enhancing and stress-relieving properties, making it a popular choice for those looking for an uplifting cannabis experience.
  • Caryophyllene: Caryophyllene has a spicy, peppery aroma and is the only terpene known to directly interact with our body's endocannabinoid system. It has potential benefits that include anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects.
