Terpenes are the compounds responsible for the way plants and fruits smell! Terpenes are actually in everything, not only weed. For instance, the terpene limonene is the main reason why lemons smell so citrusy and can actually be isolated to be used in perfumes and essential oils! When it comes to cannabis, terpenes are the reason certain strains smell the way they do or give you a specific type of high. They act as a sort of guide for your high and help you understand why some strains make you feel a certain way and why the other is a completely different experience.
