What are Terpenes?

6:59 am EDT 9/14/2022

Terpene extractions from the cannabis plant are starting to be more widely available in the USA. Essentially Terpenes are what give your favorite strain its signature smell or flavor. It provides the CBD products a fruit smell, while other companies use terpenes like limonene which give their cartridge a lemon/orange smell. Companies can use private label terpenes that create specific effects such as an uplifting effect or help promote sleep.

Terpenes are organic hydrocarbons that produce the smell and flavor of plants and trees. Plants and trees produce them, but not all terpenes are found in resins, essential oils, or waxes. Some terpenes can be found in the plant’s leaves (terpenoids), roots (taraxacins), flowers (linalool), fruits (humulene), and other parts of the plant such as bark or woody trunks.

Types of Terpenes and Their Effects

  • Monoterpenes: These are the most common and easiest to identify. They have a single isoprene unit in their structure and tend to smell more like fresh herbs than anything else.
  • Diterpenes: These terpenes contain two or more isoprene units in their structures, but they have a unique smell because of this structural complexity. They’re often described as earthy or musty scents and can be found in many different plants, including cannabis (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol).
  • Sesquiterpenes: Sesquiterpene molecules contain five or six isoprene units instead of just one—and these can be extremely potent when it comes to aroma production! For example, pinene (a sesquiterpene) has been shown by research studies across multiple species, including humans, that it may help reduce anxiety levels among users who experience depression due to stressors like job loss or divorce; however, further study needs to be done before we know precisely how effective this compound would be at treating mental illness symptoms such as anxiety attacks/panic attacks etcetera.

CBD and Terpenes

Terpenes are the aromatic oils that make your favorite strains of cannabis so distinctively different. They’re also what makes each strain smell and taste like the unique blend you know and love.

Terpene content can be added to private label CBD products by using a terpene extraction process or simply by including them in a formula as an optional ingredient. Terpenes have been used for centuries to promote relaxation, sleep induction, and other benefits that users find helpful when they want to unwind after a long day of work or school.

How to Get the Most from Terpenes

If you’re trying to maximize the benefits of terpenes and get the most out of your experience, here are some tips:

  • Add terpenes to your private label products. Products like tinctures, edibles, and other traditional methods of consuming cannabis offer plenty of opportunities for adding terpene-rich herbs into their recipes—this will help ensure that they taste delicious and help ensure they deliver maximum effects when appropriately consumed.*

Adding terpenes to private label cannabis products before consumption can help with potency and flavor. This is a fact regarding edibles—as cooking them degrades the volatile odorous compounds in cannabis (terpenes). It’s also worth noting that adding terpene-rich herbs into tinctures, oils, or concentrates can help boost their medicinal effects.

Can I Add Terpenes to My Private Label Products?

You can add terpenes to other private label products. You can do this in several ways, but the simplest is by using them in your food, drink or a private label formulation.

For example, if you’re making cannabis-infused honey or oil, consider adding terpenes as an ingredient to enhance the flavor of your product and make it more appealing to customers who might not usually be interested in consuming cannabis-infused foods or drinks. Of course, the easiest way is to purchase terpenes separately, then add them in small amounts when cooking or baking your products.
