Terpenes are organic compounds produced in a variety of plants and flowers that give them their various natural scents. They can be extracted for their flavour and aromatherapy benefits.

What is CBD OIL?
Terpenes are organic compounds found in various plants, including cannabis. Their primary purpose is to ward off plant predators and lure certain pollinators. However, they have distinct scents that can be extracted for flavour as well as aromatherapy benefits, which can include both physical and mental benefits. When hemp-derived, CBD terpenes are combined with CBD, the “entourage effect” can occur, meaning that the plant compounds work together to enhance each other’s benefits.

Why use terpenes for vaping?
Terpenes can be extracted for their flavour benefits and therefore including them in e-liquid adds a desired flavour to the valping experience. Additionally, using hemp-extracted terpenes in addition to CBD can cause the “entourage effect,” that is that when various compounds from cannabis are used together, they work simultaneously to maximize each other’s benefits.
Terpenes are also heat sensitive, as different terpenes are released at different temperature levels when included in vape pens. This is why vaporizers have built-in temperature controls. In order to get optimal results when vaping, you can adjust the temperature accordingly to the desired release point. Not only do you enjoy the benefits of CBD, but they are enhanced by the flavorful additions of terpenes.
Do terpenes increase the quality of CBD?
Terpenes do not increase the quality of CBD, but they can help enhance their effect by creating the “entourage effect.” The “entourage effect” is when multiple compounds from the cannabis plant are used simultaneously, they may work together to maximize each other’s benefits.
