What are Terpenes and What Do They Do?
Terpenes are aromatic and flavorful compounds found in plants- including cannabis. In addition to cannabinoids, terpenes help influence the effect and high associated with particular strains. “Terpenoids share a precursor with phytocannabinoids, and are all flavour and fragrance components common to human diets that have been designated Generally Recognized as Safe by the US Food and Drug Administration and other regulatory agencies.”
“Terpenoids are pharmacologically versatile: they are lipophilic, interact with cell membranes, neuronal and muscle ion channels, neurotransmitter receptors, G-protein coupled (odorant) receptors, second messenger systems and enzymes.” For example, Myrcene has been popular for centuries as a potential sedative or sleep aid.
Cannabinoids and terpenes work together in synergistic ways. The “Entourage Effect” refers to enhanced effects of cannabinoids and terpenes when used in combination. As always, the effects of cannabis and cannabis products vary on an individual basis. When experimenting with cannabis products to elevate your lifestyle, always take note of how different cannabinoids and terpenes work well together to produce optimal results.
