Terpene Boost: How to Grow Stronger Smelling Cannabis

The taste of cannabis is definitely most important when it comes to smoking preferences, but you’ve probably noticed that almost everyone who’s looking to purchase it shoves their noses into a storage jar or bag.

How to Cure Cannabis

Have you ever picked up cannabis that smells damp, grassy, and generally not nice, or dry cannabis that doesn't smell great? Read this article on How to cure cannabis to get the most out of your batch.

Curing is possibly the most overlooked aspect of cannabis production, and until recently was all but ignored within the black market here in the UK. Back in the day, not many people knew how to cure cannabis correctly.

What are Cannabis Terpenes?

You are probably familiar with cannabinoids like THC and CBD - but do you know about Cannabis Terpenes?

Terpenes are chemicals found in cannabis that not only give the plant its taste and aroma, and also deliver some therapeutic effects. There are over 20,000 terpenes in nature, with more than 200 identified as cannabis terpenes (not found exclusively within cannabis, but found in the cannabis plants). It is worth noting that the terpenes in cannabis vary from strain to strain.
