adding terpenes to cbd tincture

Using concentrate? Just add 1-5% of the total weight (we suggest starting around 2% and see how you do) When using concentrates we grab one that is supposed to taste just like the strain or profile it was named after, unfortunately many are disappointed by the lack of aroma or taste, this is because during the refining process a lot of the terpes are stripped. This is where terpene isolates or profiles come in handy. You can match the terpene profile to the strain (like Jack Herer or Granddaddy Purple) you add back in what was stripped including the aroma and taste (oh and boost the medicinal benefits to!)

Adding terpenes to your dried bud can be great for enhancing what it is already doing, or if it’s dried out cause it sat in the cupboard too long, or is too skunky and stale. Have a “strain” that lacks flavour or aroma, add some terps!

Terpenes are HIGHLY concentrated plant compounds (think essential oils, but way more potent!) so a little goes a LONG way. Let that last statement sink in. a LITTLE is all you need, add to much and it will ruin the whole experience (and your beverage or your bud)

Want to vape terpenes solo? You can do that too! Just remember they are light and volatile so a low temperature is best. You want to add the terpenes to a base, ask us for ones we recommend that are free of PG, PEG, VG and even MCT. We do offer ones that are fruit derived and won’t harm you when vaped, they also won’t affect the taste or aroma of the profile you have chosen and NO high.

It’s a super simple process, add about .2mm to your pipe bowl (just lightly coat the bowl) or 1-2 drops per gram of cannabis. It may not seem like a lot but trust us, it is. You can also add a small amount to your grinder, grind the bud and them smoke/vape). You can also lightly oil your grinder then grind the flower.

Depending on the type of product you want to boost with bulk terpenes, however, the terpene mixing process can become somewhat more complicated. It’s easiest, for instance, to add terpenes to vape concentrates that simply consist of Cannabis sativa flower extract.

Plant-derived terpenes are terpenes that are not derived from Cannabis sativa. While cannabis is certainly a plant, this term specifically refers to terpenes that are derived from non-cannabis plants.

How many drops of terpenes are in a gram?

From a chemical perspective, a terpene found in cannabis has the same composition as the same terpene found in a different plant. Terpenes derived from cannabis, however, may contain trace concentrations of other substances found in the Cannabis sativa plant.

Wholesale terpenes for sale are often measured by volume, not by weight. To determine the weight of terpenes that are measured in milliliters, you can pour a small amount of concentrated terpenes into another container and place that container on a lab scale.

What’s certain is that it’s impossible to replicate the terpene profiles of specific Cannabis sativa strains using synthetic terpenes. As is usually the case with synthetic substances, the only advantage of artificial terpenes is reduced cost.

Seriously, people are finding new ways to use terpenes every day!

The answer is simple? Absolutely not. As mentioned above, our terpenes are NON-Cannabis derived and therefore have no psychoactive effects. They’re sourced from naturally derived ingredients and do not contain CBD, THC or any illegal substances.

Step 3: Get Creative and Start Mixing!

When determining how many grams or milliliters of a terpene to add to your oil (when measuring your oil in grams) to reach a certain percentage, remember:

So as much as you may want to dump an entire bottle of your favorite terpene blend into your product. please don’t. It will be far too powerful and won’t be nearly as enjoyable as you think.

Whether you’re using a terpene blend or an isolate, they’re pretty potent. So potent that you MUST dilute them before using them.
