Cannabis 101

What are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that activate cannabinoid receptors in our bodies. Phytocannabinoids are the natural form of these chemicals found in the female cannabis plant’s trichomes, a resin gland on the surface of the flower.

What are Terpenes?

 

            Terpenes are the fragrance molecules found emanating from all plants - including cannabis, which offers a unique scent from one strain to the next. The fragrant imprint of each plant is a result of different combinations of terpenes. Cannabis is unique in that each strain has a unique profile of terpenes. Terpenes are believed to exhibit medicinal properties independent from the cannabinoids. Overall, terpenes contribute to a strain's particular influence - a phenomenon known as the entourage effect.
