When we talk about therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant, usually the first thing that pops into our mind is CBD, and of course the psychoactive but very beneficial THC. But marijuana does not just consist of cannabinoids. There are more than hundred other molecules with their own wide range of medical properties. They are called terpenes. These organic compounds give cannabis strains their distinctive smell and taste. They can also be found in hundreds of other plants, even some insects, but also in the resin, as one of the main chemical constituents. Simply said, how one marijuana strain smells depends on the concentration and the proportion of different terpenes inside it. That’s why Blue Dream strain smells like mint and pines, and Sour Diesel like lemons. Besides the aroma, terpenes are also responsible for the way cannabis produces health effects. This infographic explores the 15 most common terpenes in cannabis and what they can do for our health.
