What Are Terpenes?
Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic aromatic compounds (naturally occuring hydrocarbon) produced by a variety of plants ( for example: lavender, pine) -particularly conifers, and by animals and some insects.
Many associates terpenes with cannabis since they contain high concentration of them.
Terpenes may also offer some health benefits to the human body.
Since cannabis restrictions become lighter, scientists are investing more into research about those possible benefits.
Terpents create characteristic scent of many plants, such as cannabis, lavender, pine or orange peel.
The fragrance of most plants exists because of combination of terpenes.
In nature, terpens are responsible for repelling predators or attracting pollinators (in case of plants).
Often people use terms terpens and terpenoids as synonyms but that is not correct.
Terpenes are simple hydrocarbons, while terpenoids are modified class of terpenes with different functional groups and oxidized methyl group moved or removed at various positions.
In simpler words, terpenes (hydrocarbons) are natural form of these compounds in an alive plant.
When plant dries — like in the production of cannabis, for example — terpenes oxidize and become terpenoids.
Another method of creation terpenoids is through chemical modification of terpenes .
Structure of terpenes is based on 5-carbon isoprene unit and has many varieties
An example of structural chemical formula of limonene - one of the most common smoking terpenes
Types And Use Of Terpenes
Industries use isolated terpenes to create the flavors and scents of many everyday products, such as food, beauty products or perfumes.
Best example of industrial terpenes usage is by True Terpenes Company based in Oregon, USA.
Company markets terpenes to companies that reformulate them into various consumer goods.
Companies are adding 'True Terpenes’ formulations to edibles such as chocolate, beverages (soda, beer) and various skin lotions.
Other products based on terpene formulations are vaping oils that contain cannabinoids.
Terpenes and terpenoids are also commonly used in aromatherapy (some well known of their healing properties) and cannabis usage.
Each individual terpene is associated with unique effects.
Some promote relaxation and stress-relief, while others focus and acuity.
Linalool (lavender), for example, is believed to be relaxing whereas limonene (lemon) elevates mood.

Terpenes In Cannabis
As a result of growing interest generated by topic of smoking terpenes, the last years have seen a surge in intensive research about it's every aspect.
The cannabis plant contains over 1200 molecules, of which the terpenes family are the dominant group.
Cannabinoids are active molecules found in cannabis, and are responsible for the broad range of effects the plant offers smokers.
This group of molecules includes the well-known compounds, THC and CBD.
Yet there are many more chemicals that matters in one plant, including different terpenes, sometimes highly concentrated.
Actually cannabinoids and terpenes work together in something called the entourage effect.
That means as some research suggests that CBD and THC consumed together — along with smaller organic compounds in the cannabis plant known as terpenes and terpenoids — is more effective than taking CBD or THC alone.
Another aspect of the entourage effect is that smoking terpenes can intensify or downplay the effects of the cannabinoids.
Laboratory tests indicate that identifying the precise terpene profiles from cannabis, and replicating it using other natural sources generates the desired outcome: a substance that lowers the quantity of cannabis needed to achieve a potent effect.
Magnificent terpenes not only in cannabis ;) When you look around at nature, the smell of a pine tree and the taste of honey are both affected by terpenes.
Experience Smoking Terpenes In Herbal Blends
Frankly, new research about smoking terpenes is exciting news for herb smokers.
As research indicates - terpenes assist in the bodily routing of THC, CBD and other cannabinoids to the cannabinoid receptors distributed in human body.
In turn, consumption and smoking terpenes amplify effects of cannabis enabling an overall heightened and better smoking experience.
From now on, enjoying the range of influences and positive side effects of every puff you inhale does not require large amounts of cannabis.
