Terpenes do more than just give delicious flavor , they are directly responsible for the unique feeling associated with each strain. Two plants could have similar cannabinoid structures, but completely different terpene structures. The terpene structures will result in two vastly differing experiences.
Terpenes associated with Sativas smell bright and have strong citrus notes. The citrus smell comes from the terpene limonene, which is found in lemons. Limonene is responsible for the uplifted feeling typically found in sativa-dominant strains. Limonene also helps stimulate the immune system and protects the GI tract.
Terpenes associated with Indica strains are alpha and beta pinene, which are found in pine trees. Pinene has great anti-inflammatory properties, which helps with the pain relieving aspects of cannabis. Linalool is also predominant in Indica strains. This floral terpene is to thank for the sedative effect in lavender.
