Terpenes

What are Terpenes?

Within the hemp plant, a series of ingredients exist naturally. Called Terpenes, these naturally occurring hydrocarbons make up the plant’s essential oils giving them unique flavours, scents and colours. For example, these aromatic compounds give herbs such as mint their distinctive flavour and smell.

We harness these stunning Terpenes to add natural yet powerful flavours to our CBD products, providing exciting flavour and smell profiles for our customers. These Terpenes are also linked to beneficial psychological effects such as relaxation, pain relief and anti-anxiety. See below to see the different Terpene profiles.
