What Is Terp Sauce?
Terp sauce, also known as terp juice, is one of the newest and most potent forms of consuming cannabis concentrates. It is the also the MOST flavorful form of cannabis in the market right now.
What makes terp sauce different from other forms of concentrates is that its potency is the result of high levels of terpenes as well as phytocannabinoids. Terpenes are plant-based compounds responsible for giving some cannabis strains its floral, sweet aroma; while others have a more pungent flavor. Terpenes are also present in other plants. However in cannabis, each strain possesses its own unique terpenoid profile.
Consuming terp sauce is a distinct experience because it can contain up to as much as 60% more terpenes and phytocannabinoids, resulting in an intense aroma and flavor that you won’t find in any other concentrates (or strains, for that matter). That’s not all – some terp sauce manufacturers make terp sauce that contains around 40% THC, so you’ll get a solid high out of it too.
How Terp Sauce Is Made
Terp sauce is manufactured using standard butane hash oil (BHO) methods, although it uses flash frozen or freshly cut material. This is because terpenes tend to degrade as soon as the cannabis plant has been harvested, but using freshly cut or flash frozen material gives you as much of the terpenes and cannabinoids as possible.
During a THC distillation process, terpenes are usually lost since the method separates THC from all the other compounds. What you get is a concentrate that lacks odor and flavor. But terpenes can also be extracted from flower as well as hash – and that’s what makes terp sauce different and more enjoyable for many. Think of terp sauce as THC distillate but with twice the amount of terpenes in it – just think about the sheer intense flavor that you’ll get out of it.
Consuming Terp Sauce
The science behind making terp sauce is relatively new, and cannabis enthusiasts are only now exploring how it can be used. Some use it as a flavor enhancer, adding it to cannabis products that are poor in the flavor and aroma department. It can also be added to rig or bong water.
If you’re interested in trying out terp sauce in the future, keep in mind that this is a highly concentrated product that can cause irritation to the skin and eyes. It’s meant to be used in small amounts, and never ever dab or vape pure terp sauce.
Medicinal Benefits Of Terp Sauce
Terp sauce isn’t just for recreational users. Patients can also try using terp sauce, since terpenes have the ability to enhance the medicinal properties of THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids when combined.
Some of the popular terpenes include:
