Terpenes are the fragrance molecules found in the cannabis plant’s resin; terpenes not only contribute to the pungent aroma of these magnificent flowers – but they also help define the medical qualities of any particular strain!

As it turns out, cannabinoids aren’t alone in the trichome, and they definitely aren’t the only active compounds in your medicine; in fact, terpenes not only exhibit their own medical qualities (think aromatherapy), but they also act in synergy with cannabinoids!

This means you should be considering terpenes when you buy your medicine – not just cannabinoids!

At Bloom Room, we love terpenes! We’ve got live flowers in our shop to help enhance your medicinal experience. Think roses, tulips, daisies, and chrysanthemums – and how their potent fragrance can change your mood 🙂

We’ll talk more on the subject of terpenes and cannabinoids, in the future. We’re also going to write monthly articles on www.91Life.com to help further the fascinating science of terpenes! So, for now, just don’t forget to smell your medicine before you medicate; Trust us, it makes all the difference!
