So don't open this book. Don't turn a single page. Sure, you'll be entertained and instructed at first. (The first thrill is always free.) But down the line you'll find yourself eager to tell everyone the marvels of molecules. - Mitch Earleywine, PhD - Professor of Psychology, University at Albany

The Big Book of Terps is the world's largest and most comprehensive resource on terpenes, flavonoids, and synergy in cannabis, with more than 600 pages, 1,300+ scientific citations, 153,000+ words, 51 quizzes, 1 final exam, and dozens of custom molecular images. This significant work includes information not previously known to the cannabis industry, as well as several discoveries not previously reported in scientific literature. Written by cannabis researcher and consultant Russ Hudson, with images by Gloria Fuentes, PhD (molecular biologist), The Big Book of Terps required more than 3 years of intensive research to compile and dissect, and features commentary by top cannabinoid and terpene researchers including Raphael Mechoulam, PhD, Ethan Russo, MD, Susan Trapp, PhD, Mitch Earleywine, PhD, and others.

The Big Book of Terps includes detailed information about the top 35 terpenes found in cannabis, as well as the top 12 flavonoids, with a primary focus on evidence for synergy between these compounds and other phytochemicals including cannabinoids. Manipulation of cannabis for terpene or other constituents is also discussed. More information about this book and the work of Russ Hudson can be found at
