Terpene tests for the flavor and fragrance components common to many foods, plants and herbs. Terpenes are a group of essential oils that contribute to the complex aroma profile of Cannabis and many other plants. Terpenes are generally responsible for providing many of the distinguishing characteristics of different cannabis strains. Almost every type of plant contains terpenes in its different parts such as its leaves, flowers, and fruits. This includes citrus fruits and their peels, flowers such as lavender, trees such as pine and other varietals, and a wide variety of plant species such as hops, lemongrass, herbs, and those cultivated for spices.
There is a significant amount of preliminary scientific evidence demonstrating that many of the terpenes found in cannabis exert a biological effect. Several of these, such as β-caryophyllene, β-myrcene, and limonene have been shown to have antioxidant properties. Others, including α-pinene, β-myrcene, and β-caryophyllene, act on inflammation pathways. Terpenes share a common precursor with phytocannabinoids and they are quite potent on their own, being known to affect animal and even human behavior when inhaled from ambient air at serum levels in the single digit ng/mL range. How does each Terpene effect the results? Individually there is a small understanding of some of the effects of these molecules in general, and can be described as follows.
- Pinenes: Pine odor, bronchodilators that opens the lungs to possibly improve THC absorption. Responsible for increasing focus, self-satisfaction, and energy.
- Caryophyllene: Sweet, woody, clove taste responsible for anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects through CB2 receptor activation.
- Linalool: Floral smell that is believed to provide some anti-cancer effects as well as being known to cause severe sedation.
- Limonene: Has a citrus scent and may possess anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-depression abilities.
- Myrcene: Most likely effects intake of THC by brain cells to increase the overall effects of THC when ingested together.
