Terpenes are the organic compounds that create the unique aroma of each individual cannabis plant. They provide therapeutic benefits for pain relief and have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Terpenes help with depression, anxiety, insomnia, and stress, and may also regulate cannabinoid absorption.
Flavonoids are compounds in plants which give plants their pigmentation, filter out UV rays, attract pollinators, and prevent plant diseases. There are about 20 flavonoids in cannabis. Flavonoids have anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-allergic properties. Flavonoids may also improve the bioavailability of other active compounds, influence the way that they are transported within the body, alter how they bind with receptors and they may also be involved in the metabolism of CBD and THC. In addition, flavonoids may be a key player in the ‘entourage effect’ which is the way that different compounds work synergistically together to provide a more holistic effect.
Phytocannabinoids are the naturally occurring cannabinoids that are found in the hemp plant. All of these compounds, including CBD and THC, are called cannabinoids, or Phytocannabinoids to be exact.
