Terpenes or terpenoids are volatile organic compounds that are found in every plant and are very prevalent in cannabis. Terpenes are what make each cannabis strain its unique smell and taste. Terpenes work synergistically with cannabinoids and contribute to the medical benefits of the cannabis plant.

For example, even if 2 strains have the same cannabinoid content (THC, CBD, etc.), they often have different medical benefits and overall effects.
