Have you heard people around Portland using the word TERPENE(S) when talking cannabis and wondered what they are talking about? Well Pakalolo is here to help. Terpenes are defined as aromatic oils that color cannabis trichomes with distinctive smells and flavors. WHAT??? Basically, terpenes give the cannabis its flavor and smell. But it doesn’t stop there! Terpenes also help shape the effect of cannabis. The more knowledgeable we are about terpenes, the better we can choose our strains.
Pakalolo’s Terpene 101:
Sativa Terpene(s) are uplifting / stimulating. A bright, strong citrus smell that comes from the terpene know as Limonene (think lemons).
Indica Terpene(s) are soothing and have great anti-inflammatory properties. Great for relaxation with a floral smell coming from the Linalool terpene.
