Understand Terpenes Before You Buy Weed Online

Hamilton, ON October 12, 2021

When looking to buy weed online you might have come across the word Terpenes. Terpenes are organic hydrocarbon molecules that are considered to be the essential oils of cannabis. They are found in a wide range of our weed found on our online cannabis store. Terpenes contribute to the unique aromas and flavors of each kind of plant.

Many online cannabis stores will offer strain information outlining the terpenes that are found in a particular weed bud to give the user an idea of the type of experience they can expect.

The Origin of Terpenes
Terpenes are natural aromatic organic hydrocarbons found in a wide range of plants, herbs and spices. They have a powerful aroma and hence have been used as a traditional medicine for thousands of years.The name terpene is derived from the word turpentine, which is the fluid derived from the resinous trunks and branches of pine trees. As a result, terpene is also known as turpentine oil. There are literally hundreds of different terpenes found in nature. Many essential oils contain a mixture of terpenes and provide an array of medicinal benefits.

What Are Cannabis Terpenes

When buying weed online it’s important to understand that each marijuana strain has a distinct blend of terpenes. Cannabis terpenes are the volatile aromatic oils that give each strain its unique fragrance and flavour profile. The aromatic oil must first be synthesized before it can be used for a variety of purposes. In the case of cannabis, terpenes perform a number of functions including giving each marijuana strain its unique smell, taste and event effects.
Terpenes’ molecular structure allows them to evaporate at a lower temperature, which is why they’re also found in many essential oils. This makes them perfect for inhalation.

Terpenes are thought to protect plants from harsh weather and predators. As for what they do in humans, that’s still a bit of a mystery. But cannabis researchers and consumers alike are increasingly looking at terpenes as a way to classify cannabis products and predict their effects.
The main hypothesis is that the terpene profile — the dominant terpenes — of a strain work in tandem with the cannabinoid content — the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), and other cannabinoids — to produce the effects people associate with different strains.
For example, they might explain why two different strains with the same level of THC produce such different experiences.

How Many Types of Cannabis Terpenes Are There
There are over 100 different terpene compounds found in cannabis, but only a small number of these appear in significant quantities. In fact, there are around 15 terpene compounds that seem to be the most commonly found in cannabis plants. Each of these terpenes can significantly impact the potency and psychoactive properties of the weed strain. Terpenes bind to receptors in the brain and alter the effect of cannabinoids.

5 Most Common Cannabis Terpenes

1. Pinene

Is the most common terpene found in cannabis. It is produced in small amounts. It is a strong sedative that has been found to affect the human body, similar to that of weed strains with high THC content levels.

2. Limonene

Another common cannabis terpene is Limonene. It is considered the second most common terpene found in cannabis strains. It is the main ingredient found in citrus rinds, rosemary, peppermint, juniper berries, and other plants. Limonene has many medicinal properties, including anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic.
Limonene helps fight nausea, depression, fatigue, stress, insomnia, and pain. Limonene is beloved for its therapeutic qualities, as the cannabis terpene improves mood and reduces stress.

3. Myrcene

Myrcene is one of the most common types of terpenes found in cannabis plants. It is produced in small amounts by all plants but is most abundant in cannabis. When buying weed online, a strain that is high in Myrcene terpenes will have a more sedative effect. Myrcene is most commonly used in helping with sleep, reducing anxiety, relaxing muscles and reducing pain.
Myrcene can help reduce the adverse side effects of THC, such as paranoia, by reducing the absorption of THC into your system. A high myrcene content has also been shown to increase the efficacy of THC when treating pain. Many indica strains contain high myrcene resin, which explains why users feel relaxed after consuming indica strains.

4. Caryophyllene

Another common terpene in cannabis is Caryophyllene, which makes up 1%-5% of cannabis strains. It is also commonly found in black pepper, cinnamon and cloves. Caryophyllene is known for its anti-inflammatory qualities and its ability to act as an appetite stimulant.

5. Humulene

One of the lesser-known terpenes is Humulene, which makes up 0.4%-0.7% of cannabis strains. Humulene is found in hops, basil and thyme. It can treat anxiety, migraines and gastrointestinal issues.

Final Note on Cannabis Terpenes

Terpenes are responsible for the aroma and flavour of Cannabis. Many of them have been identified as having therapeutic properties that can help with various ailments. Terpenes also help cannabinoids be fully absorbed by our body and may even aid in preventing or reducing some unwanted side effects such as memory loss and paranoia.

Maximizing their benefits
Curious to start exploring terpenes? Here are some tips to keep in mind:
  • Read the label
    • Some lab-tested cannabis brands include the terpene profiles (often the three most prevalent terpenes) and concentrations of the product (usually a number that sits around 2 percent).
  • Check for freshness
    • Terpene concentration can diminish over time, so look for products that have a recent package date. If you’re going with flower, give it a sniff if you can. You want something that’s fragrant (indicative of high terpene content), not stale.
  • Use caution with cannabis oil

    • Oil-based vaping products often have added synthetic terpenes. It’s not clear if synthetic terpenes are less effective than natural ones, but they’re often used to create solvents and other household chemicals. Proceed with caution, and be wary of marketing materials that make promises about what they’ll do.
