Terpenes

     Plants produce more than 20,000 different terpenes. Terpenes are aromatic hydrocarbons and they are the scent and flavor behind fruits, vegetables, flowers and trees. There have been over 100 different terpenes identified in cannabis, and it is the combination of the terpenes, cannabinoids, and THC that create the specific 'high' that differentiates one strain from another. We are huge proponents of terpene education here at Lazy Bee Gardens. The more you know about the terpene profile of a particular strain, the more you will know about the specific effects that strain will have on your mind and body. Regular cannabis smokers have discovered through trial and error that 50 different strains with a 20% THC content will have 50 different effects on them.  You can thank terpenes for creating the incredible diversity of cannabis that is available today. Most cannabis shops divide their flower into sativa, indica, or hybrid, and it is the terpene profile that determines which category each strain falls into. We test for terpenes at Lazy Bee Gardens and we provide the total terpene content on every package.
