Terpenez Terpene Booster and Oil Intensifier

When growing cannabis for medical or recreational use, a vital, yet frequently overlooked growing additive is  Terpenes. In this article we are going to be providing an overview of a new terpenes additive created by Zelda Horticulture called Terpenez Terpene Booster and Oil Intensifier.

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes (terpenoids) are aromatic metabolites that are found in almost all plants. Terpenes are primarily found in plant oils. Notwithstanding plants such as tomatoes, mangos, strawberries, etc, there are over 100 different types of terpenes produced by cannabis plants.

In simplest terms, terpenes give your plants flavour and smell. When growing different strains of cannabis, the concentrate of terpenes is what produces the distinct smell and flavor between different strains.

Higher concentrate of terpenes = better smell

Terpenes Effect on THC and CBD

Several studies have found that terpenes have a direct correlation with how cannabinoids such as THC and CBD pass through one’s body. The concentration of terpenes found within a cannabis plant works to either increase or decrease the effects of the CBD and THC cannabinoids. When the amount of cannabinoids and terpenes is balanced within a plant, you will notice a stronger effect and an overall better end-user effect.

4 Common Terpenes in Cannabis

Pinene (pine): Pinene is the most common terpene found in cannabis plants. This type of terpene has anti-inflammatory properties, and is it also found in orange peels, pine needles, basil, and parsley.

Myrcene (earthy, musky, fruity): The Myrcene terpene is often found in mangoes, thyme, lemongrass, and basil, and like the Pinene terpene, it is also one of the most commonly found terpenes in cannabis. The Myrcene terpene can compose up to 50 percent of a cannabis plant’s terpenes, and it is very common in indica strains.

Limonene (citrus): The Limonene terpene is characterized by hints of lemons, oranges, mandarins, limes, and grapefruits, just like its name suggests. The Limonene terpene has been shown to elevate mood, and relieve stress.
