The Terps Review: Sour Diesel

Terpenes are organic compounds in cannabis and other plants that give them their particular smell and taste. They are also pharmacologically active and synergistic with cannabinoids. Terpenes, like cannabinoids, are lipophilic (fat-loving) and hydrophobic (water-hating) and can interact with a wide variety of receptors throughout the brain and body.
