Terpene is one of those words you often hear in the CBD and cannabis industry. But a lot of people don’t dig into what terpenes are. To make things easy, if you’ve ever smelled an essential oil, then you’ve come across a terpene! From cloves to pine to citrus, terpenes are the natural oils that give hemp and cannabis (and other fruits and plants) their distinct smell, color, and flavor. Your CBD experience is greatly influenced by the terpenes that are present in the product.
