What You’ll Learn About Hemp Terpenes
There’s so much talk about terpenes in the hemp industry, but why are they so important to understand as a hemp farmer? Join us as we deep-dive into the topic.
During the webinar, we’ll discuss:
- The evolution of terpenes in hemp plants
- The integral role they play in everything from natural products and plant medicines to pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, construction materials and numerous other industrial uses
- Cultivation and harvesting methods
- Storage and/or extraction processes for maximizing terpene expression
- And more!
Understanding the role of terpenes in the natural world makes the complex relationship that humans have developed from them that much more fascinating and relevant to the cannabis industry.
