Every cannabis oil plant contains a wide variety of chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. Every cannabinoid has a similar structure, they each offer their own distinct set of benefits. Cannabinoids are derived from terpenes, the compounds found in the plant’s colorful resin glands. These compounds can resemble tiny orangish or purple-ish strands that give each cannabis plant its own distinct flavor and smell. On their own, terpenes offer aromas widely considered to be therapeutic. When they pair with other cannabinoids (this is known as the “entourage effect”), they determine each strain’s overall profile.
