Terpenes are used extensively in everyday life including in foods, cosmetics,
aromatherapies, perfumes, and pharmaceuticals. Many terpenes also have bio-active properties and are used in medical applications for the treatment of human diseases.
There are over 150 terpenes in the cannabis plant alone, all with key roles. What is really exciting is that when these terpenes are consumed, those naturally occurring properties developed to support the plant, can then support human mental and physical wellbeing.
When taken together, terpenes and cannabinoids work in synergy, meaning the consumer benefits from enhanced effects (the entourage effect).
