Terpene & Cannabinoid Biosynthesis

The cannabis plant is capable of synthesizing a wide array of secondary metabolites. Cannabinoids, terpenenoids, flavinoids, phenolics, alkaloids, stilbenoids and lignans are most of the secondary metabolites.

Please review the PowerPoint presentation below on terpene and cannabinoid biosynthesis in plants. The presentation covers the biochemistry of terpenes and then dives into what factors affect the triggering of secondary metabolites:
