Though often overshadowed by the widely known cannabinoids, the star compounds in cannabis, terpenes are becoming a well-known term in the industry.

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are aromatic organic hydrocarbons often found in the essential oils of plants. This is the essential ingredient that provides the fragrance profiles sought after by medicinal cannabis users. Terpene-specific research has pointed to the therapeutic benefits in addition to the fragrance of these aromatic compounds. This research shows that these molecules are active in the synergistic effects of whole-plant cannabis consumption, commonly known as the ‘entourage effect’.

Terpenes vs. Terpenoids

These terms are often used interchangeably.The only difference between terpenes and terpenoids is that terpenes are considered organic hydrocarbons. Terpenoids have additional atoms that have experienced oxidation. This happens when cannabis has been cured and dried. You can think of terpenes as “wet”, while terpenoids are “dried out”.
