What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are aromatic oils that create cannabis varieties with distinctive scent and flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine. Potent terpenes allow for more robust flavor, aroma and effects. Over 100 different terpenes have been identified in the cannabis plant, and every strain tends toward a unique terpene type and composition.

Their differences may be subtle, but terpenes can add interest to the consumption of cannabis. Terpenes may also add additional therapeutic applications to cannabis, based on their unique medicinal properties.

Many cannabis analysis labs now test terpene content, so you may have a better idea of what effects a strain might produce. With their unlimited combinations of potential effects, terpenes open up new scientific and medical outlooks for cannabis research.

The lab that we use here at Tamarack Dispensary tests for 9 different terpenes in our flower. We are excited to provide you with more insight into each of those terpenes as well as the Terpene Profiles of our strains.
