All About Terpenes

An introduction to terpenes in LEAF BOTANICALS specific formulations.

 An introduction to terpenes in LEAF specific formulations.         Many people are still unsure what terpenes are exactly. Briefly, terpenes are the primary constituents of the essential oils found in the cannabis plant.     They are a group of aromatic organic compounds that are typically synthesized by all plants, giving them distinctive smells.     Unlike cannabinoids, terpenes are indigenous to a variety of plant species. Known for their ability to intoxicate atmospheres with vibrant colours and pungent fragrances, the development of terpenes is essential for plants to repel predators and beguile pollinators.     In cannabis, terpene profiles are unique to strains. Their medicinal properties are independent from cannabinoids with the ability to increase energy levels, improve mood, and relax the body and mind.     The terpenes in LEAF hemp genetics serve as therapeutic accentuators for cannabinoids. We blend specific terpene concentrations based on cannabinoid content to create harmonious relationships in our formulations:     For example, LEAF’s ability to induce rejuvenating rest is influenced by the presence of myrcene and we increase the likelihood of bliss by featuring limonene in BALANCE.     The inclusion of terpenes allows us to differentiate our oil with colour, taste, and scent. Much like a therapy, LEAF formulations seduce the senses and influence feeling by creating experiences in the body and mind that match the desired effect.     As terpene stewards in training, we often consult the data to develop unique terpene blends.
