What makes cannabis and other botanicals so effective when combined together? It's the terpenes they share. If you’ve been a cannabis lover or CBD user, it’s more than likely you’ve come across the term terpenes — to put it simply, they’re the tastes and smells of plants, foods and oils that we enjoy — which have their own therapeutic and beneficial qualities. The best-known terpene is Linalool, which is most often found in lavender — and even more often used as a sleep aid.

We’re defining some of the incredible terpenes found in our formulations below, to help you make a more informed choice on which Yuyo product to use.
