Top Cannabis Terpenes
Now comes the important stuff: our pre-quiz cram session. You didn’t think we were going to send you in unprepared, did you? We won’t be touching on every single cannabis-derived terpene here, though, to make sure the quiz still presents some challenges for intermediate terp explorers.
Here are the top terpenes found in cannabis and their most notable properties.
Beta-caryophyllene is the terp that gives that bold whiff to many of the go-to items on our spice rack, including black pepper, cloves, cinnamon, and even savory herbs like oregano. Beta-caryophyllene is also believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, and emergent research into wound healing and gut health applications is promising.
Of course, this is far from an exhaustive list. Remember: a cannabis plant can be home to over 100 unique terpenes. While we won’t get too into the weeds talking about terps like bergamotene and camphor in today’s material, they can all have a discernible impact on the scent and flavor of a cannabis strain in which they appear. More importantly, they can also impact the therapeutic qualities of the strain.
