CBD Hacker wants to help people understand what each compound is thought to do, so that they can make educated decisions about which products are right for them.

Terpenes, or terpenoids, are compounds that give many plants their distinctive flavors and aromatic qualities. In the natural world, they’re found in everything from lavender to black pepper, and citrus fruits to pine trees. And some manufacturers produce synthetic versions to use as scent and flavoring agents in food and other products.
When it comes to cannabis, more and more precise analytics are becoming the norm. As a result, a broader picture is emerging of the chemical components that are responsible for the distinctive traits of each cultivar.
Not limited to the main compounds of CBD and THC, or even the composition of other cannabinoids, terpenes may play a vital role in the therapeutic applications of different varieties of medical cannabis and hemp.
