More than that, they each have unique therapeutic properties that when added to those of cannabinoids create a powerful and lasting healing effect. This powerful effect is known as the entourage effect. Research on terpenes is still ongoing, so far a number of terpenes have been identified and their effects have been identified as well.

Strawberry switchblade has the following abundant terpenes in abundance: caryophyllene, humulene, limonene and linalool.

It has potent anxiety relieving and pain relieving properties. It is also useful in alleviating alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
