Dr. Jeffery C. Raber and cannabis testing lab The Werkshop have teamed up with The Terpene Store to create a line of naturally derived cannabis terpene profiles that make exploring the cannabis plant’s chemistry more accessible than ever before. This new Natural Products line, made from only the highest quality materials and manufactured under strict safety standards, consists of 30 foundational cannabis profiles, featuring scents from strains like Blue Dream, Super Lemon Haze, Sour Diesel, OG Kush, and many more. But the terps are not just for smelling and admiring. The line invites cannabis consumers to explore the role that terpenes play in the Entourage Effect.
The Natural Products package comes with five vials of terpenes that mimic various cannabis strains’ terpene profiles. It also comes with a 1-ounce curing bag and plastic pipettes to drip the terps onto your choice of cannabis material. Knowing a little about terpenes and how they give each cannabis strain its unique effects — and after having interviewed Dr. Raber for one of my first cannabis articles in 2014 — I was excited to put the system to the test.
It was a fun experiment to infuse a fat eighth of ground CBG terpeneless hemp with a sample of Super Lemon Haze terpenes. After adding a drop or two of terps to the hemp in the curing bag, I sealed the bag and let it marinate for five days. What I ended up with was Super Lemon Haze high-CBG hemp. Next, I took my new homemade strain and packed it into a hemp 1-gram blunt, then let that cure for a day or two. The blunt when smoked was smooth and the added terps enhanced both the taste and the effect of the hemp inside. Having consumed Super Lemon Haze before, I have to say the limonene did offer up an uplifting energetic head “high.” What an awesome product, and I have four more strain profiles to try.
All of The Terpene Store’s unique and high-quality cannabis flavors can be found on their website at TheTerpeneStore.com.
