Cannabis 101: Introduction to Terpenes

Description In this week's episode of Leafly's Cannabis 101 we introduce you to terpenes, the natural compounds found in cannabis that give Pineapple Express its sweet, fruity taste, and Sour Diesel its skunky, pungent aroma. Terpenes work together with cannabinoids to offer an array of effects and therapeutic benefits known as the entourage effect. This video offers just a quick overview of terpenes and the why they are important to better understand the nuances of your favorite cannabis strains. Hundreds of different terpenes have been identified, so for more in depth information on all the terpenes found in cannabis check out or the free Leafly app on iOS and Android.
