Almost all of the active ingredients in cannabis and hemp (mostly cannabinoids, terpenes, & flavonoids) are created in the tiny mushroom-shaped "trichomes" growing on the actual green flowers. Terpenes are found everywhere in nature, and contribute to the aroma and taste in foods, including chocolate. Their relative combinations and ratios (called chemovars), determine the effects and taste of a product. But there aren't many places to find usable info for patients and consumers, in easy-to-understand graphics and summaries. So we created this free website where we currently cover 68 active ingredients on simple pages. We're here when you need us.
