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.

 

Q:  How do you use purified terpenes?

A:  Concentrates 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.
