Where else are Tepenes found other than Cannabis?
The most abundant terpenes in the Cannabis plant that form most of its essential oil are the monoterpenes myrcene, pinene, limonene, linalool, eucalyptol and sesquiterpene caryophyllene. The variation in the ratio between these terpenes is what produces the wide range of aromas that can be found in the Cannabis plant.
Terpenes are produced all over the world by a variety of plants, particularly conifers (a tree that bares cones) many foods we eat on a regular basis, and by some insects. They often have a strong odor and may protect the plants that produce them by deterring herbivores and by attracting predators and parasites of herbivores.
For instance: Myrcene is found in mango, bay leaves and lemongrass. Linalool and nerolidol are found in strawberries. Limonene is found in peppermint, rosemary, fruit rinds, lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruits, mandarins, and more.. Terpinolene and Alpha-farnsene is found in apples. Many different spices contain Beta-Caryophyllene like basil, rosemary, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, lavender and oregano. High levels of Beta-Caryophyllene are found in brocolli. Terpenes are also found in wine...
