What Exactly are Terpenes? | Mary Jane’s CBD Dispensary: San Antonio, TX / Terpenes, cannabis experience, enhancing CBD, Flavor and Taste, CBD Medical Benefits

Terpenes are a diverse and large class of chemical, organic hydrocarbons that are produced by several different plants and even some insects. These compounds have strong odors that can be easily detected. Plants produce terpenes to protect themselves from being eaten by those above them in the food chain. Their scent keeps herbivores away and attracts parasites and predators of plant-eaters.
