What are Terpenes?

Think of cannabis terpenes as the essential oils of the plant. They’re natural compounds found in cannabis that give each strain its unique aroma and flavor. But they’re not just about smell and taste; they also play a role in how the plant affects you. Terpenes can interact with cannabinoids like THC and CBD, enhancing or moderating their effects.

How do I pick what terpenes are best for me?

Some terpenes might make you feel relaxed, while others could boost your mood or help with focus. So, when you’re enjoying cannabis, it’s not just about getting high; it’s also about experiencing the complex mix of terpenes that make each strain special.

Cannabis 101

What is the difference between Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid strains?

In general, Sativa marijuana strains are described as having uplifting effects that may inspire creativity and heighten awareness of surroundings. In contrast the effects reported from Indica marijuana strains are more calming with the addition of an increase in body relaxation. Hybrid marijuana strains are a mixture of both Sativa and Indica strains in order to get the best of both worlds. Please note that these are all generalizations, and while they can serve as a rule-of-thumb, we recommend that cannabis users explore their options in small doses in order to find the strains that work best with their individual body chemistry. Cannabis is not a one-size-fits-all plant, and therefore takes a little guided experimentation in order to find what works for you.
