Exploring the Aromatic Secrets of Marijuana: A Revealing Study

Recently, a scientific study has revealed unprecedented compounds in marijuana, dazzling the scientific community and shedding new light on the enigmatic world of cannabis aromas, according to the American Chemical Society.

The Intriguing World of Smell: The Key Revealed

Unlike the long-held belief that terpenes were the undisputed protagonists in creating the characteristic aromas of marijuana, this study has uncovered a more complex truth. The newly identified compounds play a significant role in creating the distinctive smell of each type of marijuana.

Terpenes at the Research Center

Although terpenes have been identified as primarily responsible for the specific odors of each marijuana variety, this study challenges that notion. Although terpenes remain crucial players in the aromatic scene, they are not the only culprit for the diversity of odors in the plant.

Long live the Flavorings!

The study highlights the existence of another group of compounds, called flavorings, that play a crucial role in creating the various aromas of different marijuana varieties. These flavorings, which include esters, alcohols, and more, emerge as the true architects of odor differences between strains.

Discoveries in the test: Volatile Sulfur Compounds

Scientists carefully analyzed 31 types of hashish, revealing the presence of tropical volatile sulfur compounds, previously unknown in the world of marijuana. These compounds emerge as key players in the creation of specific aromas, contributing prominently to varieties with citrus or tropical notes.

This discovery marks an exciting advance in our understanding of the components that shape marijuana aromas. Lovers of this ancient plant can now appreciate even more the complexity and diversity of its aromatic characteristics, while science continues to unravel the mysteries that surround it.

The world of marijuana never ceases to surprise us with its well-kept secrets! ­čî┐ÔťĘ
