What are Terpenes and how do They Affect the Human Body?

A terpene is a scented molecule found in many plants, responsible for a plant's flavor and fragrance. Among the terpenes typically found in cannabis are linalool, limonene, pinene, myrcene, and caryophyllene. Terpenes provide not only an aromatic experience, but they are thought to also play a role in the effects of cannabis, as well as cannabinoids.
