What does “Terpenes” mean?

Cannabis compounds most responsible for particular tastes. Strains of cannabis often seek to be loaded with terpenes, as this creates unique flavor profiles and experiences for the user. Many terpenes can only be tasted at certain temperatures, so it's common for vape-loving users to start a session at a low temperature to get a full flavor profile.

Example usage:

“As I'm learning more about concentrates, I find I really like terpenes that result in a citrus-like taste.”
