Terpene Profiling

 

Terpene Profiling

Terpenes are a group of organic compounds commonly found in plants and are primarily responsible for the aromatic characteristics of cannabis. While cannabinoids are often assumed to be the sole inducer of marijuana’s therapeutic effects, terpenes have been shown to interact in symbiotic conjunction with cannabinoids to modulate the plant’s medicinal properties and contribute to its overall effects. Anresco laboratories utilizes GCMSMS (Gas Chromatography with Flame Ionization Detector) to quantify 27 terpenes:

      ✓ a-Pinene
      ✓ Camphene
      ✓ b-Myrcene
      ✓ b-Pinene
      ✓ d 3-Carene
      ✓ Limonene
      ✓ a-Terpinene
      ✓ Ocimene
      ✓ p-Cymene
      ✓ Eucalyptol
      ✓ Y-Terpinene
      ✓ Terpinolene
      ✓ Linalool
      ✓ Isopulegol
      ✓ Menthol
      ✓ Borneol
      ✓ a-Terpineol
    ✓ Citronellol
      ✓ Geraniol
      ✓ b-Caryophyllene
      ✓ a-Humulene
      ✓ Cis Nerolidol
      ✓ Trans-Nerolidol
      ✓ Guaiol
      ✓ Caryophyllene Oxide
      ✓ a-Bisabolol
      ✓ Eudesmol

All terpene analyses are performed according to the most current version of the cannabis inflorescence monograph published by the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia.
