Answer:  The cannabis we consume falls into three main subspecies: Sativa, Indica and Ruderalis (hemp). Leaf shape is one way to visually identify each variety. There are dozens of different compounds called cannabinoids found in cannabis that bind with the body's endocannabinoid receptors, which function by maintaining the body's homeostasis and regulating how cells send, receive, and process information.

Answer:  Terpenes are the fragrant oils that come from the resinous glands of the cannabis bud, or trichomes. They are responsible for giving each strain its own distinctive the taste, flavor, and aroma. Some of the most common cannabis terpenes are:

· Myrcene - The most common terpene in modern commercial cannabis. Believed to promote calming effects.
· Caryophyllene - The only terpene known as a cannaboid. It provides anti-inflammatory effects.
· Limonene - Typically found in citrus-y strains & believed to provide anxiety and stress relief.
· Pinene - The most common terpene in the natural world. It can be useful for pain, anxiety, and inflammation.   Also found in pine needles, rosemary, and basil.
· Terpinolene - Terpinolene’s potential medical benefits include anticancer, antioxidant, antibacterial,   antifungal
· Linalool - Linalool's properties are antimicrobial, sedative, reduce stress & depression, & promote the immune   system.
· Humulene - Found in hops, is a woody, spicy, and earthy smelling terpene
· Ocimene - Ocimene has wide array of medicinal properties as well as uplifting effects

Different strains of cannabis contain different levels of terpenes and terpenes are not exclusive to cannabis
