What are Terpenes?


Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic compounds produced by a variety of plants. Terpenes are responsible for what give each flower, herb and fruit its own unique scent and flavor and influence its effects by interacting with cannabinoids.

When terpenes are inhaled, applied to the skin, or consumed, they enhance our experience and greatly influence flavors and aromas.

Terpenes are hydrocarbons present in essential oils produced by nature. There are more than 20,000 terpenes in existence. Plants, animals, microbes, and fungi produce terpenes to carry out necessary biological functions. This diverse class of compounds serve as vitamins, hormones, pheromones, and as part of the immune system.

In addition to unique aromas, terpenes play an equally important role in influencing the way we taste, smell and feel when a plant, herb or fruit is consumed. This happens because terpenes interact synergistically with other botanical compounds and humans hormones to create a phenomenon referred to as the “entourage effect” that magnifies the benefits of the plant’s individual components.
