In-Depth CBD Article: What Are Terpenes and Why are They Important? Part 1

When I first got involved with CBD Oil products, I saw the term Terpenes and wondered; What are Terpenes? Over the years, I may have heard the term in passing but really didn’t worry about it. Initially, I wasn’t sure if they mattered. As I’ve learned over time, Terpenes very much matter.

Here’s an official explanation. Terpenes are organic compounds found in fruits, herbs, and plants including both major strains of the cannabis genus, Hemp, and Marijuana. They have naturally occurring distinctive fragrances. Terpenes are the main contributor to the taste, color, and scent of all plant life. Again, including, Hemp and Marijuana.

Terpenes can be sweet, spicy, piney, earthy, musky, or bitter. They can smell like citrus or any other description of a taste or scent of something. Terpenes in different foods, drinks, or flowers can be distinct enough to evoke different emotions. They can also bring back memories of different events or people that can stir a whole different set of emotions. We’ve all been there, think about it.

Groovy Hemp Company in-depth articles provide information on Organic, CBD Oil products along with other interesting subjects including terpenes.

Remember that wonderful aroma coming out of your oven when you baked cookies? That comes from a combination of various terpenes.

Different strains of Hemp and Marijuana have their own signature smell and aromas that help those specific strains appeal to different people. As I said earlier, terpenes very much matter.


Just as a quick aside, the importance of Terpenes very much transcends the worlds of Hemp and Marijuana. But moving forward today, we’ll just stay focused on Terpenes and Hemp.


Besides fragrance and taste, Terpenes might also possess some medicinal properties. They could be used to treat multiple symptoms including anxiety, depression, insomnia, and inflammation.

In Hemp, there is an increasing amount of evidence that terpenes work with phytocannabinoids (CBD, CBG, CBN, and related organic compounds and THC) to possibly produce enhanced health benefits. This is commonly referred to as the Entourage Effect.

There is some debate within the Hemp community whether the Entourage Effect exists. Considering how various Cannabinoid-based product formulations are evolving, it might become a moot point. Eventually, we’ll find out. But probably not today.
