Terpene Facts

Plants Defense Mechanism

Terpenes are often used by plants as a defense against the physical world and attraction for pollinators.

The Aromas

Spicy, earthy, fruity, and skunky are all words used to describe some of the cannabis aromas. For some, this plant reeks and assaults their nose, but for others these aromas intrigue and invite the individual to partake in its consumption.

Monoterpenes

These are extremely fragrant compounds. A majority of essential oils contain monoterpenes since they are the major class of chemicals within a plant’s essential oil. It is postulated that monoterpenes serve the purpose of attracting pollinators and also as a repellant from grazing organisms.
