Terpenes have emerged as particularly “trendy” molecules within the cannabis world. The cannabis plant produces over 100 of these smelly chemicals. They’re produced by the trichomes (the same glands that produce cannabinoids such as THC) and play essential roles in plant physiology as seen in this write up <https://www.easterneye.biz/what-is-a-terpene-what-are-the-roles-that-play-in-plants>. Terpenes play a protective role and are capable of defending plants against predators, pathogens, and competitors. Although some terpenes kill insects, they are believed to produce therapeutic effects in humans. Some of these chemicals produce anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects, among others.
