Terpenes are aromatic compounds in cannabis that contribute to its aroma and effects. They are found in all plants, and some of the terpenes found in cannabis are also found in fruits, flowers, herbs, and spices. Terpenes in cannabis vary depending on the strain, and the combination of terpenes contributes to the different smells and effects associated with each strain.
If you’d like to learn more about these interesting aromatic compounds, come join us next week at our Terpene Table! Our Education Supervisor, Alicia Bennett, will have a table set up on Monday, April 18 in Merrimack and Tuesday, April 19 in Chichester. This is a great educational opportunity, and it will also be fun!
After learning more about terpenes, you’ll have a chance to win prizes by playing “Guess the Terpene.” We will have unmarked samples so you can test your nose by trying to guess which terpene it is. If you successfully identify the correct terpene, you can spin a wheel to win a prize!
We have added a terpene quick guide on the back of the strain guide, and we expect this will be helpful for patients. We will also have new educational handouts available at the Terpene Table with more information about individual terpenes. Alicia will be there throughout the day to talk about terpenes and to answer questions about cannabis and our products.
We hope to see you at our Terpene Table in Merrimack on April 18 or in Chichester on April 19!
