Terpenes are naturally occurring organic hydrocarbons prevalent in many plants, including the hemp plant. The terpene profile, or unique combination of terpenes found in a particular hemp plant, is distinct to particular hemp cultivars and is often referred to as the “fingerprint” of the plant. The terpene profile of a plant is responsible for its unique aroma and flavor.
Green Point’s Terpenes include, but are certainly not limited to, Linalool, Limonene, and a-Pinene. Linalool, also found in lavender, has a floral candylike aroma that has been shown to provide anxiety relief and have anti-depressant effects. Limonene, also found in lemons, has a citrus aroma that leads to mood elevation, it reduces cancer risk, fights inflammation, and can be used as an antiseptic. A-Pinene, also found in pine trees, rosemary, and sage, has a pine aroma that increases energy and alertness, while also providing anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects.
