Terpenes are natural essential oils found in all plants, flowers, vegetables and herbs. These oils have a wide range of functions for the plant - some are used to fight off pests and predators, others contribute to plant growth.
In the cannabis plant, many of the terpenes have beneficial properties for our bodies - some can help us relax while others can boost our energy levels. Many laboratories are able to isolate these specific terpenes and change their concentrations within CBD. In a broad or full spectrum CBD, you’ll find naturally occurring terpenes included in the mix.
