All About Cannabis Terpenes: The Essentials You Need to Know
At The Honeycomb Farm, we are passionate about producing high-quality cannabis products. Part of what makes our products so special is the unique blend of terpenes in each strain. Take our OG Kush Cake Flower. Myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene are the dominant terpenes of the strain.
But what exactly are terpenes? In this blog post, we’ll give you a crash course on everything you need to know about these essential cannabis compounds.
What Are Terpenes?
Terpenes are organic compounds that are produced by a wide variety of plants, including cannabis. These compounds give plants their unique aromas and flavors. In cannabis, there are more than 100 different types of terpenes that have been identified.
Terpenes are responsible for the unique flavors and aromas of cannabis strains. Limonene, for example, gives cannabis strains a citrusy flavor, while myrcene imparts a musky aroma.
Here’s a chart from Kushfly that shows some of the different terpene profiles and flavors associated with them:
It’s worth noting that not all cannabis strains will contain high levels of all 100+ known terpenes. In fact, most strains will only contain a handful of these compounds. The specific mix of terpenes in a given strain will largely determine its aroma, flavor, and effects.
The Role of Terpenes in Cannabis Products
At The Honeycomb Farm, we believe that terpenes play a vital role in the overall quality of our products. That’s because these compounds can interact with cannabinoids like CBD and THC to produce various effects. For instance, the presence of certain terpenes may make a cannabis strain more relaxing or euphoric.
In addition to their potential effects on the user, terpenes also help to preserve the quality and integrity of our products. For example, the presence of certain terpenes can help to prevent the degradation of cannabinoids like CBD and THC during storage.
All in all, we believe that the inclusion of terpenes is essential for producing high-quality cannabis products.
We hope this blog post has helped you better understand what terpenes are and why they are so important for producing high-quality cannabis products.
At The Honeycomb Farm, we make it a priority to only use the best ingredients in our products. That’s why we always make sure to include plenty of terpene-rich strains in our lineup!
In our online cannabis shop, you’ll see information on every strain we carry, including terpenes. For example, our popular Apple Fritter flower has a dominant terpene profile of caryophyllene while our Platinum Kush Breath Remix Flower has limonene and caryophyllene, a gassy funk flavor.
