Introducing our new terpene wheel

Introducing our new terpene wheel

Terpenes are chemicals that are created and stored in the trichomes of the cannabis plant, along with cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. Terpenes give cannabis its distinctive aroma and cannabis users have indicated that terpenes are sometimes associated with various effects. The exact effects of terpenes on their own, and within cannabis, are still being researched, but the following descriptions may help you navigate our product assortment. We have added aroma information to our new terpene wheel and categorized them into scent groups: Minty, Citrus, Spicy, Woodsy, Earthy, and Floral.

Different cannabis strains may contain up to 200 different terpenes. Our wheel features the most common cannabis terpenes and the aromas associated with them. Below are in-depth descriptions of the 12 terpenes that most frequently appear in cannabis.

Remember, what works for others may not work for you. Educating yourself and cautious experimentation will help you find your way.
