Shopping for quality cannabis in Portland, OR

Terpenes significantly influence the flavor and aroma of a cannabis strain.

They can work in synergy with cannabinoids and plant compounds to produce unique and beneficial effects.

More than 400 terpenes have been identified but research is not complete. There is still so much more to learn about them. I have figured out that the terpenes affect my preferences for products. I typically look for specific terpenes, because I know I’ll like the flavor and appreciate the effects. One of my favorites is linalool, which is similar to lavender and helps to alleviate stress. Limonene is a common terpene that offers lovely citrus notes, anti-cancer properties and has demonstrated anti-anxiety benefits. Myrcene is the same terpene found in mangoes and has antifungal and antibacterial properties. Beta-pinene smells like pine trees and is supposed to have anti-cancer properties. To maximize my consumption experience, I take the time to carefully read the label. The majority of the brands include the terpene profiles. I also check the freshness, because terpene concentrations tend to diminish over time. I look for the date on the packages and for flower, I give it the sniff test for freshness. So far, I’ve been extremely impressed with the integrity of the strains I’ve found at the dispensary. All of their products are third-party tested and verified pesticide- and contaminant-free. All of the cannabis is sourced from local farmers, and they offer a variety of sungrown, greenhouse-grown, indoor and light-deprived grown. While I mainly buy flower and pre-rolls, I also shop for vapes, tinctures, concentrates and edibles. I consult for recommendations from the budtenders, have joined the loyalty club and take advantage of the discounts on daily deals. So far, I’ve been impressed with the quality of every item I’ve purchased.
