What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are volatile molecules that evaporate easily and reach our nose to help us identify the type of plant in front of us.

Terpenes are responsible for the aroma of cannabis and many other species of the plant kingdom. The terpenes present in the chemical composition of cannabis are created by secretory cells located within the glandular trichomes (hairs), as is the case with cannabinoids, they mostly accumulate in the exuded resin.
