Terpenes vs. Cannabinoids

When you start diving deeper into the world of cannabis, you’ll start seeing two words more and more – cannabinoids and terpenes. Once you notice them and know what they are, you’ll see them everywhere. Xtra labs specializes in creating terpene blends that enhance your everything. Today we’ll talk about the differences between cannabinoids and terpenes and how they interact with each other.

What are terpenes and what do they do?

Terpenes bring the flavor. And the scents. Terpenes are present in all plant life from lavender plants to citrus fruits. The individual terpenes in these plants brings out their scents. Each plant is made up of hundreds of individual terpenes. There is some research connecting terpenes with cannabinoids through the entourage effect. The idea is that these compounds enhance the effects of one another.

What are cannabinoids and what do they do?

Cannabinoids are the compounds that actually bring the effects of cannabis and hemp. The most prominent cannabinoids are THC and CBD, but there are hundreds of minor cannabinoids. These compounds interact with our body's endocannabinoid system. Essentially, cannabinoids are the things that make you feel all the things cannabis makes you feel.

How do cannabinoids and terpenes work together?

When creating a product like a vape or edibles, you can combine unique terpene blends with different cannabinoids to make a truly unique experience. Matching bright terpenes like limonene with an uplifting cannabinoid like CBG will create synergy between the scent and taste of your product and its effects.
