What exactly are Terpenes? We hear about them all the time now that this industry is growing, so we thought we’d take a sec to school you on the details.

In a nutshell, terpenes are fragrant oils that give cannabis varieties their distinctive aromas and flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine. They’re not just unique to cannabis, all plants, herbs and some fruits have them. Terpenes are medical in nature, exhibiting analgesic, euphoric, anti-cancer and sedative properties.

In Hempathy Therapy Cream, we use Lemongrass for its healing terpenes, which are known to be anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving. It’s just one of the many ways we help you heal. #HempathyHealing
