Terpene Basics

"Herty system" in use on turpentine trees in Northern Florida, circa 1936

Terpenes represent the aromatic and flavor building blocks of our natural world. They exist in virtually any plant that contains a fragrance and taste, which also happens to include cannabis. They are a vast classification of chemical compounds found in trees, fruits, plants, vegetables, insects, and all throughout nature. The benefits of terpenes have been scientifically evident since at least the 1900s but have been used throughout human history in one form or another.
