What Are Terpenes? The DNA of Weed


Terpenes

These are sort of the DNA of weed. These are all the characteristics of the weed. Aroma, taste, effect, and more.

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are also known to work in your body in various ways. They can be used to describe the various effects of cannabis, such as relaxation or energy. Understanding these little compounds can help you make informed decisions when it comes to buying cannabis. Terpenes are not psychoactive drugs and are often used as a marketing strategy for cannabis products. They are also responsible for the unique characteristics of a plant. Researchers are using over a hundred terpenes in their studies. Their goal is to develop the right aroma profiles for various strains and effects-based products.

How Do They Work?

There's a handful of terpenes we've identified for different uses. Terpenes are the DNA of weed and will be different on which ones you take. Some common ones are;

  • CARYOPHYLLENE 

  • LINALOOL

  • MYRCENE

Just to name a few. These three have all shown conclusive results for helping with stress and anxiety. It's incredible that these so-called characteristics of the weed affect what type of effects you'll feel. Some help people with additional things like inflammation and pain relief.

So Terpenes. Should I know this stuff?

Not necessarily. This information of course is useful when finding the right strain for your issue, but also good to know when buying weed for adult use. These tie into the differences between Sativas and indicas. It's also good to do research on what you're putting in your body.
