TERPENE INSPIRED FASHION: RIHANNA

A terpene is a compound found in plants and they work concurrently with cannabis. Terpenes are responsible for scent and taste. Terpenes are not specific to cannabis, but to fruits, plants and herbs as well. Terpenes bind to receptors in the brain and influence the overall effect of the cannabis experience. To put it simply, we must give terpenes more credit, as they play more of an integral role in the way cannabis interacts with your body. As I enjoy bridging the two worlds of cannabis and fashion, it was only right to take inspiration from our girl Rihanna’s closet in representing some of the common terpenes found in the plant.

Fun Fact: Drug sniffing dogs seeking cannabis are actually trained to detect terpenes rather than THC specifically.
