History of terpenes

Although there is a huge amount of research going on involving terpenes currently, they have indeed been used for thousands of years by a wide variety of ancient civilisations. While the exact timeline is less than clear, cannabis was likely used in Ancient Egypt as far as 5,000 years ago. For example, the Egyptians used terpenes for fragrance and religious purposes.

Camphor became known in Europe around the 12th century. It was one of several precious aromatic substances in high esteem. Even during colonial times, there were many scientists who were exploring the benefits of using terpenes. Although terpenes took a back seat when Cannabis products were frowned upon, they are currently an area of great interest in the scientific community.

ABOUT TERPENES

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are just one of many chemical compounds found naturally in plants. They are responsible for the characteristic aromas, flavours, and pigment of plants such as pine, lavender, citrus, and cannabis. The fragrance of most plants is due to a combination of terpenes.

Terpenes play a crucial role in plants. In some plants, terpenes attract pollinators to aid their survival, while in other plants they can repel predators, such as insects or foraging animals.

Many people commonly associate them with cannabis because cannabis plants contain high concentrations of them. Manufacturers use isolated terpenes to create the flavours and scents of many everyday products, such as perfumes, body products and even foods. In terms of cannabis, terpenes are what make certain strains smell or taste different from others.

ABOUT TERPENES

Terpenes in Cannabis

Terpenes are responsible for the incredible smells and flavours we find in cannabis plants. The cannabinoids THC and CBD are actually odourless so when you smell cannabis, whether it’s a Lemon Haze or a Chocolate Thai, those smells are from terpenes NOT cannabinoids.

There are more than 100 known terpenes in Cannabis, but experts have only linked a handful of them to specific effects. One strain can contain a variety of terpenes, but the concentration of each terpene differs. This is why each strain has a specific aroma and benefits. For example, the strain Blue Dream contains Pinene, Myrcene, and Linalool, giving it a fruity berry aroma and can aid in reducing anxiety.

The Entourage effect

THC and CBD are just two of over 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis, however they are the two most abundant cannabinoids and the most well studied. Both cannabinoids and terpenes can give you some clues about what to expect from a cannabis product, but they’re two different compounds.

That said, they all appear to interact with each other in what experts call the entourage effect. This is the hypothesis that the “full spectrum” of cannabis, including all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds found in cannabis, work synergistically to produce the sensations and effects of cannabis. In other words, it’s a hypothesis that a little bit of everything might have more benefit than a lot of one thing.

Extraction/Combination of terpenes

Terpenes from cannabis can be extracted from the flower’s resin glands known as trichomes. The cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are also extracted from this part of the plant along with the buds, leaves, and even the stem. Once collected, terpenes can be strained out into purified oil and stored in bottles for usage.

Different species of cannabis plants produce different terpenes, creating a variety of choices for us to enjoy and benefit from. Mixing terpenes can also create new smells and flavours. For example, the terpene Gelato is created by crossing Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies.

Food and beverage

The food sector began using different kinds of terpenes in food as they give unique flavours profiles to herbs and fruits,

which are an amazing supplement for sweet and savoury dishes.
