The willingness to explore and unravel the complexities of cannabis has made Just Jane an unquestioned leader in recreational cannabis. One of the fascinating aspects that our specialists have dug deeper into is the world of terpenes. So, what are terpenes?

Terpenes are the natural compounds found in cannabis and many other plants that produce the diverse variety of aromas and flavors. These range from the citrusy sharpness of a juicy lemon to the earthy notes of a forest hike. They do more than just create a complex flavor palate; terpenes represent a crucial component of the cannabis experience.

Over 100 different terpenes have been identified within the cannabis plant alone, each strain carrying its own unique blend of these aromatic compounds. Their importance goes beyond their aromatic features. The specific mix and ratios of these terpenes play a significant role in defining the characteristics of different strains. This includes those of your favorite herbs available at Just Jane’s weed dispensary in Albuquerque, NM, NM, and our cannabis delivery services in Albuquerque, NM.

Effects of Terpenes

Although terpenes are present in minute quantities in cannabis, their effect is far from insignificant. The therapeutic attributes of terpenes blend with cannabinoids such as THC and CBD, producing an ‘entourage effect.’ Terpenes enhance the benefits of cannabinoids in a symphony of therapeutic synergy. It is this connection between terpenes, THC, and CBD that researchers are working to unravel further. It may be the key to understanding cannabis’s therapeutic potential fully.

To further underline the importance of terpenes, let’s consider Myrcene, one of the most common terpenes found in cannabis. Myrcene carries an earthy aroma and is particularly renowned for its calming effects. Studies suggest that myrcene may possess anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties alongside producing relaxing effects. Other terpenes typically found in cannabis include Limonene, displaying citrusy notes and potential stress-relieving properties, and Pinene, bearing pine notes with potential anti-inflammatory benefits.
