What are terpenes?
Terpenes are the natural compounds responsible for the unique aromas and flavors of all plants. Some terpenes, many of them found in CBD, are believed to also have healing properties that impact the benefit of the plant on the body. For example, a common terpene in hemp plants is Myrcene, which gives the plant its earthy aroma, and its relaxation properties are known to be beneficial for inflammation, pain and insomnia. This, along with many other terpenes in cannabis, is what makes the plant so special.
