What is a Terpene?

Terpenes are powerful scent-based plant molecules which have proven to activate various receptor groups in the brain and body, controlling a variety of physiological and psychological events.

For example, the inhalation of specific terpene blends can quickly create a calm, relaxed mental state while a different terpene set can create an aroused, highly energetic mind state.  Remember, the shortest of the 12 cranial nerves is the olfactory nerve, so there are few barriers to impulse transmission and the olfactory lobe of the brain is at the frontmost part of the brain, nearby the back of your nose and throat.  The actual way in which we are built, supports the importance of olfaction.
