The world of terpenes is pretty exciting. There are around 30,000 identified terpenes in the plant kingdom and there is some research to show that terpenes have some unique therapeutic and medicinal applications. Terpenes play a pivotal role in cannabis strains, as specific combinations and ratios make up each cannabis strain’s characteristic aroma and flavor.
As we learn more about terpenes, we are discovering that, in addition to the taste and scent of each strain, terpenes likely contribute to the way that strain makes you feel. Limonene is associated with feelings of calm. Caryophyllene interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, and may offer pain-relieving effects. When it comes to buying terpenes online or just buying profiles to add to your own products in general, there are some key factors you’ll want to keep in mind.
How to buy terpenes online
For starters, you should have a general idea of what you’re trying to achieve and the specific terpenes that may help you get that result. For instance, it’s already well-known that certain cannabinoids are more effective when combined with others than they are when isolated and presented on their own. This is the entourage effect, where each element plays off the others with synergistic results.
Terpenes may have their own role in the entourage effect, giving each strain of cannabis not just a distinctive aroma and flavor, but a strain-specific effect. For instance, the linalool in Zkittles is thought to heighten the relaxing effects of CBD. Other terpenes work with cannabinoids that include CBD and THC to create effects that can include anxiety relief, enhanced creativity, better sleep, or other desired effects.
Buying strain-specific terpene profiles
At Advanced Terpene Solutions, we have identified the terpene profiles of 25 different popular strains. Our experts analyze the different terpene levels, then reproduce the unique scent and flavor associated with each strain. We use a combination of isolated natural terpenes and organically synthesized terpenes in our blends. When you buy strain-specific terpenes, you get access to the benefit of that particular blend. Enjoy the euphoric lift of Strawberry Cough or the relaxing effects of Blue Dream.
Finding the perfect terpene balance
The terpene strain profiles for sale at ATS reflect the terpene balances in the original strain. Strains with names like Lemon Cheesecake or Girl Scout Cookies do not taste like their food equivalents; rather, they reflect the flavor of the cannabis strain they are based on.
Ways to use terpene profiles
Terpene strain profiles or natural flavor profiles can be added to a wide range of cannabis products, carrier oils and concentrates. There is even a popular line of beers that incorporates terpenes to evoke the flavors and scents of particular cannabis strains.
