What are terpenes?

Martin PippinCBD Oil

Terpenes are organic, aromatic molecules produced in the resin of the hemp plant along with cannabinoids, and are responsible for its fragrances, flavors, and color. There are more than 100 different terpenes within the hemp plant; their main goals are to protect the plant from predators and attract pollinators.

Terpenes are also found in other living organisms, such as plants, herbs, and fruits, and serve similar protective purposes in each. When terpenes are dried, they are referred to as terpenoids, a name commonly used interchangeably with terpenes.
