The cannabis plant is both beautiful and complex, with hundreds of different active ingredients. While much attention is played to cannabinoids, another set of compounds also play a vital role: terpenes. But what exactly are cannabis terpenes and why are they so important? And how can Boveda humidity packs protect them? Read on to find out!
What are Terpenes?
Have you ever wondered where dank bud gets its scent? The truth is in the terps. Terpenes are the molecules responsible for the flavor and aroma associated with various cannabis strains. Additionally, it is believed terpenes (also known as terps) play a role in the effects cannabis has on the consumer. This is due to something called the entourage effect, which is the idea that all parts of the cannabis plant working together in perfect harmony are responsible for how it makes you feel.
Why are Cannabis Terpenes Important?
As previously mentioned, cannabis terpenes help set strains apart. They offer several unique scents, from gassy to earthy to sweet, and a variety of unique effects. Without terpenes, bud would be bland and may not offer the same type of experience one would come to expect. Producers rely on the terpene profile of a cultivar to help explain to consumers exactly what they may be getting themselves into upon consumption.
