Terpenes can be used to influence your endocannabinoid system. They help "fine tune" other naturally occurring cannabinoids to work best with your body. so, what exactly ARE terpenes anyway?
Terpenes are natural compounds found in many plants, including cannabis. They are responsible for the plant's aroma and flavor profile. Think of them like essential oils in plants. Terpenes can interact with other compounds in the plant, such as cannabinoids, to produce different effects on the body and mind. Some terpenes are known to have relaxing or sedative properties, while others can be more energizing or uplifting.
Myrcene is the most commonly found terpene, most abundantly in the cannabis plant. It has an earthy aroma, and is often described as having a herbal or spicy scent. Myrcene is a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, analgesic, and has sedative properties. It is also known to enhance the effects of other cannabinoids, such as THC, by increasing their ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. The old rumor about mangos "enhancing" your experience is actually true, it's because of the Myrcene.
