Terpene Profile

A batch of Mendocino Menage a Trois was tested by MCR Labs and the following terpenes were found present in the batch:

Limonene, caryophyllene, humulene, myrcene, linalool, pinene, camphene, geraniol, humulene, isopulegol, careen, and terpinolene. Total terpenes in the cannabis plant exceed 200, but only about 30 have been studied intensively.

One of the most important discoveries about terpenes is the entourage effect. This effect happens when terpenes are combined with cannabinoids such as THC and CBD to produce an amplified healing effect.

Terpenes on their own have unique therapeutic effects, and so do cannabinoids. When the two are combined the healing effect is amplified and prolonged.
