Let’s talk terpenes

You’ve probably been hearing a lot more about terpenes lately. They’re kinda the new ‘it’ thing in the cannabis world. Terpenes are organic compounds in plants responsible for the unique smells and tastes of your favorite plants, flowers, and fruits.

Terpenes are what give lavender its otherworldly aroma and cause the olfactory experience when you peel an orange or rub a pine needle between your fingers. They’re also responsible for the signature scents and flavors of your favorite cannabis strains.

Working synergistically with their better known sister compounds, cannabinoids like CBD and THC, terpenes contribute to the myriad health benefits of the magical marijuana plant. Secreted by trichomes, the tiny resin glands of cannabis flowers, there are at up to 150 of these aromatic molecules, each with its own medicinal effect.

LAKEGRADE loves an educated consumer as much as we love producing the highest quality, all-natural, premium sun-grown flower available in the market. We thought you might be curious about these amazing compounds and the health benefits attributed to them.
