Although cannabis strains are usually praised for the powerful effects of their natural cannabinoids, an increasing number of experts and enthusiasts are harnessing the strain’s terpene profile. So what are terpenes


What are terpenes?

Terpene is an aromatic compound found in all plants, and it gives each cannabis strain a peculiar scent and taste. A particular cannabis plant can have over 100 distinct terpenes, with each one striking a balance between its taste and aroma. If you used specific cannabis and loved the flavor, you probably enjoyed it because of the terpenes it contains. 

Terpenes in the cannabis plant also contain numerous medicinal properties such as antimicrobial, anticancer, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory. It is used to prevent inflammatory diseases and aids skin penetration by opening skin pores when applied through terpenes-infused skincare products. 

Now, as cannabis gains increasing popularity, users are becoming curious about the profiles of each terpene, especially the ones found in famous strains such as Pineapple Express and Jack Herer. There is also an influx of cannabis products with amazing terpenes that have helped some users develop a unique cannabis palette for certain terpenes.

Strain recreation is fast becoming an exciting process in the cannabis community, and if you love to enjoy a flavorful cannabis puff, you need to know how it works. This article is timely because more and more cannabis is taking innovative strides towards harnessing the value of terpenes through the art of recreating terpenes. 


The art of recreating terpenes

This is how the magic happens!! Based on research gathered from cannabis users who are curious about the terpenes in their cannabis ad having preferences for some, companies are beginning to look into recreating them. 

The focus for such companies is on popular terpenes that have gotten the attention of cannabis users. After all, the companies are also seeking to profit from the user’s interests, and the most preferred strain will be a best seller. 

The company Lock & essential Remedies in the Sunset Park, Brooklyn neighborhood, is a leading terpene-focused business seeking to get involved with strain recreation. This organization was co-founded by cannabis industry veterans Andres Moreira and Oleg MaryAces, who seek to create a collection of CBD vape cartridges that will recreate the terpene profiles of four popular terpenes, which includes: 

Please note that there are other terpene strains available but these are the ones chosen by the company (for now).

Lock & Key’s vision is deeply rooted in their appreciation for the scientific recreation process and, of course, their love for the super cannabis plant. As Lock & Key Remedies take a frontline role, other companies are bound to join in the art because cannabis users will always value such experiments that births heightened flavors. 

The company’s name also provides insight into its interest in recreating compounds, and with laboratory reports encompassing different strain profiles, they are set to launch their own CBD alternatives. This company has also taken a dozen trials of each formulation before sending them to the market. 

The replicated cannabis strains packaged by these companies will offer cannabis users varied access to new products, making cannabis usage so much fun. Like they say, ‘The more, the merrier!” 


The benefits of terpenes 

Aside from the fact that the recreational process is done to offer cannabis users a mix of the terpenes they like, there are also many additional benefits that terpenes offer. 

For instance, the terpene called “Myrcene” has a soothing effect on the user. This terpene aids the blood-brain barrier, which amplifies other terpenes’ access to the brain. The benefits of terpenes make it an attractive compound to medical experts who want to tap into its potentials. 


Being innovative with terpenes 

The conversation on replicating cannabis strains is gaining momentum as it holds a lot of potential for the future of cannabis usage. Instead of simply buying cannabis for recreational purposes, they will also seek out recreated terpenes that offer added value to their cannabis experience. 

Blue River Terpenes, a company in Oakland, California, got its inspiration from the fragrance sector to create a line of cannabinoid-free versions of some strains. Some of the strains include “Cookies” and “Wakanda Grapes,” and they intend to sell them at top-shelf prices: the products they create can be used on the skin and added to food. 

The CEO of Blue Rivers Terpenes also developed a modified vapor vacuum distillation system that can extract terpenes using oxygen, reverse osmosis, and nitrogen. 

The innovations offered by both companies indicate how cannabis will be revolutionized in the future. Users will demand more than the expected “High,” and the companies who go out of their way to provide such options will get the attention of the cannabis community. 

The key takeaway from both companies getting innovative with terpenes is that terpenes are viewed as a ‘Special sauce” that offers more than flavor to cannabis users. The sauce is usually stored in a distillate syringe or dab container. Just as more research is done on the added value cannabis offers, the world is also becoming increasingly conscious of what terpenes can do for the human body. 

Lock & Key Remedies utilizes plant-derived terpenes for its innovation, while Blue River Terpenes relies on cannabis-utilized terpenes. Other companies new to the field are using synthetic terpenes, and all of these factors show the new direction the cannabis industry is headed. 


Bottom Line 

If you tried a new pasta recipe and it turned out to be the BEST pasta you’ve ever had, what will you do? Of course, you will want to replicate the dish whenever you’ve got visitors to show off your culinary skills. Well, the same idea of replicating the pasta dish is what drives the art of terpene recreation.

Terpenes offer immense health benefits to cannabis users and exploring how to recreate the most effective terpenes is becoming a new trend in the cannabis sector. With two prominent cannabis companies already leading with disruptive terpenes recreation, it is safe to say that the cannabis sector is on an innovative upward trajectory.
