The cannabis plant produces around 100 cannabinoids. You probably know about THC and CBD, but others play a role in the effects a strain produces.
There are hundreds of known cannabinoids derived from cannabis, yet we only seem to focus on a select few like CBD and THC.
Humulene is a terpene found in hops, sage, basil, black pepper, ginger, clove, ginseng, pine trees and cannabis-of course.
Limonene is the second prevalent terpene on the plant and the third most prevalent terpene in cannabis strains.
The study of the potential therapeutic properties of terpenes is in its infant stage. What we know is terpenes impact our body, our brain and modulate brain cell behaviour.
Terpenes (terpenoids) are found in many plant species, which include cannabis.
They play a vital role in working within our endocannabinoid system and other beneficial cannabinoids like CBD to treat our ailments. Terpenes have beneficial properties and are responsible for the variation of flavour and aroma in cannabis plants.
When it comes to cannabis and hemp, we have made some pretty significant leaps.
We identified the cannabinoid THC in 1964, mapped the first body-producing endocannabinoid in 1990, and significantly enhanced our understanding of the endocannabinoid system in 1992.
