Found in plants and other species, Terpenes are hydrocarbons. They are readily found in in Cannabis.
Terpenes are aromatic (again think of the scent of a lemon) and are responsible for the smell of cannabis flowers that have matured. While this is typically a skuny smell, as mentioned above, terpenes can also have relaxing scents, piney scents or even fruity scents.
Some patients report that terpenes have anti-inflammatory benefits, ease pain, and decrease sleep deprivation.
