Cannabis and CBD-infused foods are becoming more popular as legalization spreads across the nation. Companies like Coca-Cola are even taking the edible trend into consideration as fervor continues to spike, having been in reported talks with Aurora Cannabis to develop potential products.
As a result, other compounds derived from cannabis are also getting attention for their benefits and potential usage in food. A particular category coming into the spotlight more frequently are terpenes, which are aromatic oils found in foods and plants. Terpene extracts have no psychoactive effects and can be derived from either the cannabis plant itself or extracted from foods and sold in concentrated form.
