Cannabis terpene profiles (cannabis aromas) are used in many different products within the cannabis sector.
They’re mainly used in countries and states where cannabis is legal, such as Canada or the most of the US (California, Colorado, Nevada etc…), as well as in countries where hemp and its derivates (such as CBD) are legal, like in Italy or Switzerland.
The use of cannabis terpene profiles, rather than terpenes directly extracted from cannabis, adds more stability and quality to the final product. It also makes our product legal everywhere, unlike terpenex extracted from cannabis, which have regulations and different laws in different countries.
Extracts and/or cannabis concentrates:
Our terpenes are used in all types of extracts and cannabis concentrates in order to add an accurate aroma and flavor, improving the entourage effect. Some examples are:
- Dry extracts (dry hash and dry sift).
- Extracts via ice and water (ice water hash, iceolator, fullmelt, bubblehash etc).
- Co2 Extracts.
- Butane or propane extracts (BHO or PHO).
- Pressure and heat extracts (rosin/rosintech).
- Cannabinoid distillates.
Cannabis or derivates vaped
The legal definition of cannabis tends to widen to offer more and more products that require stability.
The most common new method are dab pens or vape pens, which contain cannabis concentrates such as THC distillate (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD (Cannabidiol) or other cannabinoids alongside terpenes by different strains.
Terpenes can add specific cannabis flavors and aromas to different mixtures, as some concentrates such as cannabinoid distillates lack certain aromatic properties.
Plus, each cannabis terpene profile offers different effects depending on the cannabinoids they’re mixed with too, which means the same cannabinoid base mixed with different terpenes can be used to produce different products.
This capacity of modifying the effects produced by cannabinoids is known as the “entourage effect”.
Terpenes are present in all cannabis flowers, although at times when they’re not dried properly or even due to a genetic issue, cannabis flowers may not contain the expected terpene proportions, which makes for less aroma and flavor.
Our cannabis terpene profiles (our cannabis aromas) enrich the quality of cannabis or hemp flowers that have lost aroma or flavor.
This is often done with “cannabis light” flowers or CBD-rich flowers, especially in countries such as Switzerland and Italy (where there are many companies that produce CBD), where terpenes are used to enrich the aroma, flavor and quality of dry flowers.
