Learn More about the Benefits of L-Limonene in Cannabis
There’s something about citrus that can brighten the mood and lift the spirits. Have you ever wondered what gives certain strains of cannabis a bright, unmistakable citrus scent?
Terpenes give plants like pine trees, berries, and lemons specific aromas as well as flavor profiles. But they aren’t only for taste and scent — terpenes also give us clues about a plant’s nutritional or medicinal properties, and that goes for medical marijuana strains as well.
