Terpene Talk

What are Terpenes?

What are the key ingredients that differentiate our Zenergy Water Emulsion and Syrenity Water Emulsion. The answer?



Think of the last time you’d picked up a flower & taken in the scent, the last time you peeled an orange, or the last time you’d squeezed a lemon. The fact is; you’re probably much more familiar with a Terpene than you’d ever realised.


So what are they?

Think of your bottle of CBD as a car: The CBD itself is the engine, providing all the power. Terpenes are the steering wheel, determining your journey.

Terpenes are organic compounds derived from plants fruits, and even insects. These compounds create scents of many plants, such as Rosemary, Pine, Lemon Peel, Orange Peel, Cannabis & Lavender. These unique odours commonly form the basis of Essential Oils.

Research has found that Essential Oils provide a range of varied, therapeutic benefits. Most notably management of stress & mood fluctuations. That’s why essential oils are so popular with treatments such as Aromatherapy.



DID YOU KNOW: Over 150 different Terpenes have been found in a single Cannabis leaf? That’s a lot of therapy.


So how do Terpene’s impact Cannabis?

Terpenes play a highly important role in nature, aiding damage recovery & protecting plants from animal grazing or infectious germs. Research suggests that some Terpenes, like Cannabinoids, can also influence the human body, more specifically the Endocannabinoid System. The Endocannabinoid System is a biological system in our bodies that may influence our physical & mental processes.

Some research has shown that a terpene can affect or enhance the experience a person gets from using cannabis. This is known as the entourage effect. One study has even suggested that the beneficial properties of Terpenes could provide a natural alternative to therapies. You can read more about their findings here.
