Terpenes are the primary essential oil found in many types of plants and flowers. They are aromatic in nature with each plant variety having its own distinctive flavor such as citrus, berry, mint, or pine.
Many Terpenes are found in Hemp plants. This seems to support the findings that hemp is now known for its medicinal qualities. A company known as Joy Organics has developed a process to extract these healthful essential oils while preserving their medicinal qualities.
Below are the common Terpenes with their associated healthful benefits. I've included photos of the other plants a particular terpene is found in to help associate its benefit and aroma as I am a visual learner.
