What Are Terpenes?

Smell a hemp plant or walk into a conifer forest and you’ll experience the power of terpenes. These organic molecules give each hemp plant its distinct fragrance and flavor. Every hemp cultivar (aka strain) has its unique aroma because it contains a specific terpene profile. 

When you smoke CBD flower, dab or vape concentrates, these organic compounds work hard to deliver a flavorful experience. The type of adventure you’ll have with a particular hemp strain citrusy, piney, woody, herbal, or tropical depends on the strain’s aromatic profile.
