Why Are Terps Important?
Terpenes give the cannabis plant its aroma. Having the terpene profile of a product is important in choosing a scent and flavor profile that one may prefer.
In addition, the terpene profile can be an important consideration because some terpenes are effective for pain and others for inflammation.
For example, linalool is a good remedy for reducing symptoms of arthritis.
They can also work more effectively in tandem with cannabinoids like THC and CBD for our holistic wellbeing, in a phenomenon known as the “Entourage Effect.”
