So in cannabis, it isn’t in fact the THC or CBD compounds that cause the fragrance, but the terpenes.

Terpenes can be added to all your CBD products and herbal blends. Terpenes are great for adding to CBD flower, since they are very concentrated, just a drop can cover over 3Gs. So 1ml will last you a while. They enhance the aromas and taste of any products they’re used with. Also adding to the effects of any CBD products or herbal blends.

CBD terpenes can be used for the “entourage effect”. ( Mixing more than one CBD product to alter and or enhance effects/taste and aromas). Terpenes help in directing THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids to the cannabinoid receptors which are scattered throughout the human body..Which ensures better absorption and assimilation of all the active constituents
