ABOUT TERPENES & THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT

COMMON TERPENES FOUND IN CANNABIS HEMP

WHAT ARE TERPENES

Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic molecules that are present in Cannabis and a wide variety of plants. Terpenes account for aromas and flavors produced by the essential oils of many types of plants. Terpenes induce distinct effects on the human body that vary between different types. Along with providing their own independent benefits, terpenes work together with cannabinoids to produce an array of effects and therapeutic benefits known as the entourage effect. 

 

 
 
WHAT IS THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT 
 
The Entourage Effect is the synergetic effect that results when various natural components within a plant interact together within the human body to produce different, often stronger, effects than caused by any one of those components used alone. In the case of Cannabis these various components include terpenes and cannabinoids.
