Terpenes are aromatic compounds found abundantly in plants. They are responsible for the smells and taste of each plant. In cannabis, terpenes are found in higher numbers than many other plants, which is why cannabis is so potent.
Terpenes are also responsible for the effects of your high. THC percentage is similar to alcohol percentage, as it determines how high you get just like alcohol percentage determines how drunk you get. Cannabis terpene profiles will determine whether you get tired, energetic, creative, or whatever else.
There are over 30,000 known terpenes, however we will focus on the 9 most common ones in the cannabis we carry.
