What Is That Smell? Everything We Know about Terpenes and Beyond (10 Minute Read)

In this blog we will explore everything to do with the scent of cannabis. As we have discussed previous blogs, Terpenes are a distinct and influential class of organic compounds produced by a variety of plants. They are often fragrant and act as essential oils in plants, including cannabis.  Additionally, Terpenes play a crucial role in the "entourage effect" of cannabis, which is the theory that the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other molecules (which we will discuss in this blog) produced by the trichomes of cannabis work together to produce unique effects and benefits. Major Components of Scent in Cannabis Terpenes – There are over 200 different terpenes identified in the cannabis plant. Each one has a unique smell and is the major contributor to the aroma of cannabis. Esters - Esters are formed when alcohol combines with a carboxylic acid. They are found in many fruits and fragrances and are often used to create fruity aromas. Flavonoids - Flavonoids are a class of plant pigments responsible for the colour and flavour of many fruits and vegetables. They are also found in cannabis and are believed to contribute to the taste and smell of the plant. Synergistically, they may also enhance the effects of terpenes and cannabinoids. Aldehydes - Aldehydes are compounds that smell sweet and are often used in perfumes and flavourings. They are also found in cannabis and are believed to contribute to the taste and scent of the plant.
