Cannabis tastes and smells good! However, some cannabis strains have a more intense flavor and stand out above the rest. This could be for many reasons, but mainly it’s the terpenes that produce this intense flavor and aromas. Terpenes aren’t found exclusively in cannabis. For instance, myrcene, which is one of the most common cannabis terpenes, is also found in fruits such as mangoes, bays, or hops.
Terpenes have a strong odor, and they are produced by plants to chase away herbivores. In addition, terpenes are commonly found in conifer resins and they are used as fragrances in perfumery.
