It's not just THC that runs the show. Terpene profiles influence the "high" one experiences. They play a key role in differentiating the aroma, taste, and effects of each strain.
Mother of all terps, Myrcene, is the calming element also found in hops and lemongrass.
Caryophyllene is the element that gives black pepper its bite and can provide anti-inflammatory effects, easily binding to CB2 receptors.
Bright, citrus smelling, mood-enhancing terp can also be found in citrus peels.
