You’ve probably heard that “terpenes are the aromatic oils that give cannabis its distinctive smell.” Sure they do, and not just cannabis but many other plants as well. But terpenes also boost the medicinal effects of cannabis strains.
A sample of Quantum Kush showed the following terpenes:
• Beta Myrcene: 0.21%
• Beta Caryophyllene: 0.11
• Limonene: 0.1%
• Alpha Humulene: 0.05%
• Linalool: 0.02%
• Alpha Pinene: 0.02%
• Terpinolene: 0.01%
Terpenes may be lost due to various reasons such as improper curing, improper storage, or being exposed to excessive heat/light. If terpene quality has diminished you should be able to detect this through a weak smell. Don’t go for cannabis products with diminished terpene quality as this will have commensurate diminished therapeutic value. A COA can always alert you to the presence and amount of terpenes in a given cannabis product.
