In this weeks podcast Ben talks about the importance of terpenes and their new found fame due to the cannabis movement.  We ask will the interest in less know cannanoids like CBG CBB we over shadowed by interest in terpenes.  We learn about the terpene superclass theory and Phillip Henry’s Hyperclasses theory and he shed light into new research on myrcene as a skin penetrator
