Get to Know a Cannabis Terpene: Camphor

Camphor has such a long history with humans (dating back to at least the 6th century!) that it has even garnered its own adjective to describe its smell: camphoraceous (terpenes do have a lot of fun words associated with them!). I would even say that ‘camphoraceous’ encompasses a physical experience along with a smell — how else to describe that visceral, mentholated wake-up call from a bit of Vicks Vapo-Rub?
