Can terpenes get you high?

Terpenes are organic compounds that work in the body to produce effects on the brain and other areas of the body. Consuming cannabis terpenes will get you high in the same since a medicinal flower in the wild would get you high. Myrcene is a sedative and relaxant. Linalool is sedative and causes fogginess.  Alpha Pinene works with gaba receptors in the brain causing a mood shift. B-caryophyllene is a Anti-anxiety compound, sedative, Body relaxant, anxiolytic, and antidepressant. Alpha terpineol relaxes nerves and effects the brain. Adding THC to these compounds amps up the desired effects. Some terpnes can get you high while others not so much.
