Cannabinoid, indica, sativa, hybrid and strain are official cannabis terms.
Just recently, when I visited my local dispensary, the budtender mentioned terpenes.
I didn’t know what she was talking about. I thought I was fairly comprehensionable about cannabis, however there is constantly more to learn. Terpenes are another naturally occurring chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. They determine the flavors, aromas and even the colors friendd with a variety of types of vegetation. There are terpenes in citrus fruits and aromatic herbs, such as thyme and sage, however for cannabis, terpenes are responsible for the certain smell and taste of odd strains. Terpenes help to protect the plants from predators and severe weather. It is believed that the terpene profile of a strain works in partnership with the cannabinoid pleased to achieve the effects friendd with particular strains. It’s possible for 2 odd strains with equal levels of THC to produce easily odd experiences. This is because of the terpenesâ€¦ While some are considered to be psychoactive, because they affect the brain, terpenes don’t cause a high sensation. It is believed, but, that terpenes impact the effects of THC. I’ve realized that I was focusing too heavily on THC pleased when choosing a strain to purchase. I am now more interested in the terpene profiles, modern research suggests that certain terpenes might have potential benefits for certain mental health complications, such as anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder. There are approximately 400 recognized terpenes in cannabis, however only a handful have been connected to exact effects so far.
