CBD, THC and other trace chemicals found in a whole bud cannabis plant create some of the common medicinal properties that cannabis is known for . A group of these trace chemicals are the organic hydrocarbons referred to as terpenes. The aromatic plants use their unappealing smell to ward off predators such as insects and animals.

 

There are over 100 different fragrant terpenes found in cannabis. The smells may be different but those differences can be significant. The smells are characteristic of certain strains and correlate with the effects that the plant may have. Some familiar terpenes are found in the diagram below with their corresponding effects and medicinal properties.

These differences are important due to the varying conditions that people use CBD and cannabis for. For instance, purchasing a product that causes alertness if you are experiencing anxiety would not be wise.

Because of the varied terpene content within different sativa strains, the Bud Master can offer products that are going to be specific to your needs, helping to relieve any guess work. Ask your bud master to recommend a product that is perfect for you and start enjoying the lovely and fragrant smells of the various terpenes!
