Terpenes

Traditional thinking would dictate that the effect of a cannabis plant is determined by whether or not the strain is an “indica” or “sativa”. Research has determined that terpenes have a huge impact, not only with their smell and flavor of each cannabis strain, but also providing potential medicinal benefits and recreational effects. Due to this, terpenes are a very important factor when evaluating a specific cannabis strains unique flavor and effect.
