The Untapped Power of Terpenes

"Terpenes are molecules that grow on the flowers and leaves of most plants, including cannabis."

July 12, 2019

Since the dawn of time, the various elements of the natural world have worked together to maintain a careful balance. The first humans thrived on the environment around them—food, shelter and all other means of survival came from the Earth. The air was ripe with aromatic compounds, which we now recognize as terpenes. Terpenes are molecules that grow on the flowers and leaves of most plants, including cannabis. They’re what give plants and flowers their unique aromas and flavors. Many believe they also support wellbeing and balance in the body and mind.

Get to Know Your Terpenes

Cannabis contains surprisingly concentrated amounts of various terpenes. The primary terpenes found in cannabis are pinene, myrcene, linalool, eucalyptol, limonene, humulene, geraniol, terpineol and caryophyllene. High amounts of these terpenes can also be found in plants like lavender (high in linalool), citrus (high in limonene) or eucalyptus (high in eucalyptol).

Each terpene has its own specific health benefits. Pinene can aid memory, while limonene is energizing and supports focus. Myrcene and linalool both have relaxing, sedative qualities. Caryophyllene has so many health benefits, it’s practically a wonder drug on its own.

In the past two hundred years, that balance in nature has been wildly unsettled by industrialization and the other effects of humans. Many of us reside in urban cities and pay a pretty penny for fruits and vegetables that are untouched by synthetic chemicals. The air that was once filled with natural, healthy terpene compounds is now full of man-made pollutants and fine particulate matter that can lead to serious health problems. If you live in an urban environment, odds are you’re terpene-deficient.

So, what can you do? How do you restore that lost balance?

Renew Your Wellbeing with Terpenes

That’s where we come in! We’re here to help you discover the terpenes found in the everyday world and show you how to benefit from their incredible, natural powers that can make you feel good from the inside out. You may not realize it, but terpenes exist all around us. You can eat them, drink them, rub them on your face and bathe in their infused essence. It’s as easy as throwing a lemon wedge in a glass of water or putting a few drops of lavender essential oil in the tub.


Absolutely a great dispensary. Team is always ready with a smile and patient to a fault with MMUR questions. This dispensary goes above and beyond in customer service and is always open to any issues you might have before or after product purchase. ...Between the rewards points you accumulate and the regular sales they have across all product lines, you will not go broke or sacrifice quality. ...Surterra should be a regular stop. And the Coral Reefer line is AMAZING!

Very friendly staff! They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. The team is very knowledgeable about all products and very helpful to find the right thing for you. Clean space and quick service.




Surterra is, by far, the best dispensary out of the 5 in my neighborhood. I need a high THC for pain relief, etc. and Surterra generally has some 30%+.  Their discounts and rewards program are the best in the area.  The budtenders and support staff are awesome.

Surterra has the best pre-rolls in my area of multiple dispensaries to choose from. They're not too tight & burn great. This is the place to get your pre-rolls folks!

The customer service and products I received are top notch. As a new patient they've taken the time to answer all my questions and ensure that I completely understand, not just make the sale and rush me out the door like other places. The daily sales and special discount offers make things very affordable...the attention I receive from the customer service reps will keep me coming back.

This is my absolute favorite dispensary. Daily deals, amazing customer service, and phenomenal products. Surterra has been coming out swinging with the recent new flower strains! They are by far the most efficient/fastest dispensary I've ever been to. 12/10, highly recommend.
