    TERPENES

WHY CANNABIS-DERIVED TERPENES ARE SUPERIOR

The key reason cannabis terpenes differ from, and are superior to, botanical and fruit derived terpenes. The unique terpene profiles found in cannabis are so robust, distinctive, and particular that they are near impossible to duplicate. Botanical terpenes are also primarily used in an attempt to duplicate flavor, but again the benefits of cannabis-derived terpenes are unique to the cannabis plant itself.
