They always carry the most amazing aromas. Trichrome contains hundreds of therapeutic compounds that contribute to the medical benefits of cannabis.

With the efficacy and popularity of Cannabis, THC and CBD have become the most widely researched and well-known acronyms in the medical profession. They are some of the most famous therapeutic compounds used to treat various ailments like cancer, mental disorder, etc. However, most researchers believe that CBD and THC must be combined with some natural form or other chemical compounds like terpenes, cannabinoids, and flavonoids for superior results.
