Top Terpene in Hemp Flower: Caryophyllene
Terpenes are the aromatic compounds in cannabis that give the plant it’s unique smell, and unique benefits. They give the different CBD strains their unique flavor profiles. The presence of these terpenes along with secondary cannabinoids like THC, CBDa, CBG, CBN, and others activate a therapeutic phenomenon known a the “entourage effect.” But science also shows us that terpenes contain compounds that can affect many systems in the body to boost immunity, relieve pain as well as produce a long list of other positive healthful effects.
