So-called terpenes come up pretty often in the context of CBD products. Terpenes are natural, organic compounds and are important elements of large variety of plants, including eucalyptus, peppermint, lemongrass, lemon balm, thyme, as well as cannabis, and contributes to their taste, smell and colour.
Cannabis contains a large number of terpenes, also known as cannabis terpenes, that are said to have multiple therapeutic characteristics. In the cannabis flower, they are said to increase or affect the effect of the cannabinoids – and thus can influence the entire medicinal purpose.
To date, cannabis terpenes have not been largely researched, but are most often discussed in the context of medicinal applications.
They are counted as an important foundation for plants as well as essential oils, they can be found in perfumes and fragrances, and they are often used in aromatherapy. Tom Hemp’s products only contain such cannabis terpenes that are responsible for the different aromas and scents.
