Terpenes are a diverse group of molecules found in fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers. They play a number of important roles in plant life and nature.
Not only are terpenes responsible for the distinct fragrance a plant emits, they help to attract pollinators and ward off fungal infections.
Because the cannabis plant produces terpenes, they also play a significant role in the medical cannabis community.
Different strains of cannabis have different combinations and concentrations of terpenes, which make each cultivar unique.
Additionally, the theory known as the “entourage effect” suggests terpenes may work synergistically with cannabinoids to provide therapeutic benefits.
Fenchone is a terpene that contributes to the anise-like smell and taste of fennel.
With a woodsy and earthy aroma similar to camphor, fenchone can also be found in cinnamon, dill, rosemary, saffron, star anise, and sweet basil.
In addition to its use in aromatherapy, perfumery, and as a flavouring agent, fenchone has been studied for its potential analgesic (pain-relieving), anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties.
