Knowledge Is Power
Terpenes, also known as isoprenoids, give cannabis its unique flavor profiles using molecules that are difficult to view, consisting of repeating units of isoprene. Being one of the lesser known major cannabinoids, terpenes are one of the biggest contributors to the physiological and psychoactive effects of cannabis. The “entourage effect,” discusses the relationship between terpenes and cannabinoids, explained simply as what differentiates one strain from another. Terpenes cannot be more important, being effected by environmental stresses but also acting as the foundation for the development of more complex molecules, like cannabinoids. A lot of terpenes, when in association will either catalyze or impede the production of different compounds within a particular strain. Knowing how terpenes work has allowed scientists to handle cannabinoids, manipulating ratios to achieve desired products.
