What Are Cannabis Terpenes and What Do They Do?

11.30.21 - 4 min read

Summary

  • Cannabis terpenes are aromatic compounds that provide cannabis strains with their unique smell and taste.
  • Terpenes in marijuana can cause an “entourage effect” with other cannabinoids to amplify or better balance the potential effects.
  • Marijuana terpenes can be used to determine if a specific strain is indica or sativa dominant.
  • The most common cannabis terpenes are Myrcene, Limonene and Borneol. 
  • Terpenes are widely researched for their therapeutic effects and benefits.

Have you ever wondered why certain cannabis strains are named after something fruity, like Papaya Cake or Lemon Meringue, while other strains receive names like Sour Cheese or Burnt Toast? The answer lies in cannabis terpenes. Terpenes are what give various cannabis strains their unique aroma and flavor. Ranging from bright and citrusy to earthy and skunky, terpenes create a distinct flavor profile for each strain.

Terpenes in marijuana have long been a discussion among horticulturalists groups, medical researchers, and cannabis-lovers alike. Aside from their scent, marijuana terpenes can play a major role in the possible effects you may feel from various cannabis strains.

Want to learn more about cannabis terpenes and the role they can play in your own well-being? Read on, and we’ll guide you through essential terpene info, plus the potential benefits they can have on body and mind.

Terpenes 101: What are Terpenes? 

First, let’s walk through the basics. Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in almost every flower, herb and fruit grown across the globe. In fact, there are more than 200 types of terpenes found in the cannabis plant alone. Much like other flowers, cannabis flowers develop terpenes to ward against predators and attract pollinators. 

What’s so special about cannabis terpenes? Each aromatic compound creates a different scent. So, while there’s a pretty good chance you don’t consider yourself a pollinator like a bumblebee, you can smell the difference in cannabis terpenes the same way certain insects do. For instance, a strain like Lavender Kush will likely have a noticeable lavender-like smell—even to us humans.

Beyond their aromatic nature, marijuana terpenes also offer potential therapeutic benefits and positive psychological effects. Terpenes in marijuana have been known to interact with other organic compounds, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), to amplify or balance the effects of various cannabis strains.[source]

Where can you find terpenes in cannabis plants? 

It’s easy to smell terpenes in cannabis, and sometimes even easier to spot them on marijuana plants. Simply take a look at the tiny, sticky “hairs” that cover the surface of cannabis flowers. Those microscopic, crystal-like hairs are called trichomes. Trichomes contain resin glands that produce the psychoactive and therapeutic properties of the cannabis plant, including terpenes. 

On a chemical level, terpenes are derived from molecules of isoprene found within cannabis trichomes. While you can’t see these isoprene molecules with the naked eye, you will be able to spot the trichomes themselves. Aside from cannabis flower, trichomes can also be found on the leaves and stems of the plant. [source]

How are terpenes different from cannabinoids or flavonoids?

The cannabis plant consists of a wide variety of compounds. Several of these compounds, including terpenes, are created within trichomes. However, trichomes are also where other compounds, like flavonoids and cannabinoids, are made. 

Let’s take a look at how terpenes are different from cannabinoids and flavonoids.

  1. Cannabinoids: Interact with our body’s receptors and create numerous psychoactive and therapeutic effects. Core cannabinoids include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
  2. Flavonoids: Contribute to the pigmentation and flavor of a cannabis strain and offer unique therapeutic benefits, including antioxidants
  3. Terpenes: Responsible for the aroma and flavor of a cannabis strain and support cannabinoids (THC and CBD) in producing psychoactive and therapeutic effects. 

Though cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes play a distinct role within the cannabis plant, they work best together. This is commonly referred to as the “entourage effect.” [source]

The entourage effect: How do terpenes work?

Now that we’ve answered the question “what are terpenes?” we can dive into discussing how they work. On their own, terpenes are a powerful aromatic compound. They’re often separated and distilled for use in aromatherapy or essential oils for their scent. However, when consumed as part of the cannabis plant, terpenes work a bit differently. 

Terpenes actually support other cannabis molecules—and can amplify therapeutic properties of other cannabinoids. This is known as the entourage effect. The entourage effect is when terpenes form a synergy with cannabinoids like THC and CBD to create stronger effects than both would achieve on their own.

In fact, certain terpenes can intensify the potential effects of other cannabinoids two to four times greater than an isolated compound. Marijuana terpenes can also “balance” the potential effects of a cannabinoid like THC. Now let’s take a deeper look at how terpenes in marijuana interact with the human body.

What is the Entourage Effect?
Learn about The Entourage Effect with this guide.

How do terpenes interact with the human body?

Cannabis-derived terpenes interact with the human body like cannabinoids. They enter the bloodstream and work with various hormones and receptors in the brain, glands, organs, immune cells, and connective tissues.

Terpenes mainly interact with the serotonin and dopamine systems found in your brain, which help you feel happier, more at ease and sleep better. This interaction can influence the effect of other cannabinoids, like THC, to deliver a different high. In other words, terpenes in cannabis are why certain strains may make you feel extra energetic and creative, while others make you feel ready for a nap.

Do terpenes determine if a strain is indica vs. sativa? 

When discussing terpenes and their effects, one of the most common questions is whether terpenes help to determine if a strain is a classified as an indica or sativa-dominant variety. The simple answer is yes. Terpenes are known to change the way cannabinoids like THC interact with our brain. The type of terpenes present in a strain, as well as the concentration of the terpenes, can determine the type of high you can potentially experience.

So, certain terpenes can amplify a relaxed high associated with indica strains, while other terpenes may create a more uplifting high. But will the terpenes alone get you high?[source]

Do marijuana terpenes get you high?

So, you may be wondering if terpenes can amplify psychoactive effects, do they also make you feel high? No, cannabis terpenes alone will not give you an intoxicated feeling. Even the highest terpene strains can’t create psychoactive effects with solely terpenes. To create that high sensation, you’ll need to consume a psychoactive cannabinoid like THC. Together, terpenes can amplify the potential psychoactive effects of certain cannabinoids.

Alphabetical Terpenes Cannabinoids Chart: Terpenes and Their Effects

Now that you have a better understanding of terpene basics, we’ll take a closer look at individual terpenes and their potential effects. As we’ve discussed, each terpene has a different scent and list of potential benefits. This is where cannabis terpene profiles come in.

Cannabis terpene profiles are unique to each strain, and include characteristics such as aroma, medical benefits, potential effects and boiling points. Before deciding between strains, you’ll want to ask a patient care specialist about their cannabis terpene profiles, the concentration of terpenes and their effects. 

For a bit of background information on each type of terpene, take a look at this alphabetical terpenes cannabinoids chart.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What do terpenes do in the body? 

Terpenes enter the bloodstream and target various systems in the body to amplify the potential effects of cannabinoids, including THC and CBD.

Why are terpenes so important? 

Terpenes are important because they provide each cannabis strain with a unique aromatic profile and help balance or magnify the potential effects of other cannabinoids. 

What is the difference between terpene and terpenoid? 

Terpenes are hydrocarbons, which means they are aromatic compounds made of hydrogen and carbon. Terpenoids are an oxidized compound that occur once cannabis (and its terpenes) are dried and cured. 

Do terpenes get you high? 

No. On their own, terpenes cannot get you high. 

Will terpenes show up on a test? 

No, terpenes will not show up on a marijuana usage test. Cannabinoids, such as THC, will appear on a test. 

Do different terpenes have different effects? 

Yes. Terpenes and their synergy can create different effects and alter the type of high you’re having.

Is CBD better with terpenes? 

While isolated CBD does have medical benefits of its own, the inclusion of terpenes in a full-spectrum product does allow for easier absorption and can potentially amplify the benefits of CBD itself.

Do terpenes affect taste? 

Yes. Similar to flavonoids, marijuana terpenes impact the taste of a cannabis strain. 

How do terpenes work with cannabinoids? 

Terpenes interact with cannabinoids creating an entourage effect or synergy altering and even increasing the influence of cannabis.

Do terpenes help cause an entourage effect? 

Yes. By definition, the entourage effect occurs when cannabinoids like THC or CBD have other phytocannabinoids, like terpenes or flavonoids, to interact with.
