Q&A

 

Q:  What are Terpenes?

A:  Terpenes are the essential oils present in cannabis, other than cannabinoids. They are secreted from the same glands that produce THC and CBD. Many believe that terpenes play the key role in differentiating the effects of various cannabis strains.

 

Q:  What do terpenes do?

A:  Terpenes are responsible for the unique flavors of every strain of Marijuana.  They are also responsible for the unique effects of strains such as “Cerebral, head high, stoned, sedative, etc.”.

 

Q: How do I use terpene profiles?

A: Terpenes are what you smell, and knowing what they are will deepen your appreciation of cannabis whether you’re a medical patient or recreational consumer. You can be creative with how to use terpene profiles. Vape companies usually add 1-5% your terpene profile to your THC/CBD oil. Concentrates, wax, slabs and any cannabis products can be mixed with with 1-20% terpenes depending on what effect desired.  Terpenes can also be dropped onto the flower product, and smoked in a conventional pipe or vaporizer for added flavor and effects.

 

Q:  What is in the different terpene profiles?

A:  Each terpene profile is unique based on the strain it is derived from.  Cannabis is known to contain over 100 different terpene molecules.  Strains are classified into three categories; Indica (Sedative), Sativa (stimulant), and Hybrid (mixture of Sativa and Hybrid).

 

Q:  Where do terpenes come from?

A:  Terpenes are naturally created by the plant.  All terpenes originate from the same building block molecule (Isoprene).  Like a Lego, the Isoprene molecule can attach to itself in several different positions.  Two Isoprene units is called Monoterpene.  Three Isoprene units is called a Sequesterpene.  Four Isoprene units is called a Diterpene.  THC is actually derived from Isoprene units.  Steroids are actually derived from 6 Isoprene units.
