Aromatic molecules found in plant resins

Terpenes

Terpenes account for the vast

array of smells and flavors in cannabis flowers and extracts, and provide the notable aromas of cannabis varieties.

There are thousands of terpenes found in the plant kingdom, and more than one hundred compounds found in cannabis alone.

As a cannabis plant matures from fertility to senescence, the resins containing terpenes change in composition and viscosity. Cannabis terpenes are typically divided into two chemical classifications, monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes, the former being more volatile.
