What are Terpenes? 

Terpenes are natural flavor molecules that give hemp strains their distinct personality, flavor, and scent. They exist in all other fruits, veggies, and botanicals, such as fragrant orange and floral lavender. Their biological function is for survival and adaptive purposes. For instance, bugs cannot eat citronella grass because of its unpalatable oil created in part by its terpene profile. But we use terpenes for aromatherapy purposes, they also are what create cannabis’ varied effects. 

Cannabis Derived Terpenes

Hemp and marijuana plants naturally produce over 100 different terpenes that come from the same glands that secrete THC and CBD. Environmental and genetic factors like soil and age determine a plant's flavor profile.  Today, terpenes challenge old-school thinking that cannabis effects are determined by whether it is an indica or sativa. Researchers are still unclear as to why, but one theory suggests that it’s the aroma itself that changes how our mind perceives the strain and alters our response. Terpenes promote relaxation, focus, stress relief, and other feelings. They also support the entourage effect and enhance a hemp product’s overall results.  While packed with flavor, terpenes are colorless. Impure extractions may have a light yellow hue. Terpenes by themselves are also less viscous than whole-plant hemp extractions. They are also water-soluble, unlike cannabinoids.  While there are dozens of cannabis derived terpenes, myrcene, pinene, caryophyllene, limonene, and terpinolene are the most abundant. Here’s a breakdown of the top five terps. 

Real Cannabis Terpenes

  • Myrcene: A relaxing, calming terpene that exists in mango, lemongrass, and more. 
  • Limonene:  A terp with a bright and citrusy flavor, like lemon. It’s found in citrus rinds and juniper and may serve as an anti-anxiety or stress-reliever.
  • Caryophyllene: The only terpene that activates the endocannabinoid system. It is larger than other flavor molecules and may provide anti-inflammatory effects. Black pepper and cinnamon also contain caryophyllene. 
  • Terpinolene: Found in lilac, nutmeg, apples, and cumin, and is considered an uplifting terpene.
  • Pinene: The most common terpene in nature and is prominent in pine needles, basil, dill, and other herbs. People often prefer pinene for pain and anxiety purposes.

How to Use Cannabis Terpenes

Add a few drops to a diffuser for aromatherapy. Some may directly apply a drop to the temples or neck. Others may add cannabis terpenes to CBD concentrates or drizzle a few drops into food recipes. Terpenes also blend with vape oils for custom e-liquids and mix with lotions and other topicals. Because terpenes are so potent, they should only make up around 1 to 2 percent of a recipe.
