Terpenes and Cannabis… What Does Terpy Even Mean?

The cannabis industry is growing at a rapid rate. Technology has enabled farmers and extractors to be innovative, developing more methods for growing and extraction. With many farmers utilizing progressively more scientific methods of growing cannabis and extracting its oils, the role of terpenes has come into prominence.

You may hear someone say something is “terpy,” to indicate the strong aromatic quality of a certain bud or extract.

But what does that really mean?

Terpenes are natural essential oils secreted by all plants and are also responsible for the smell and flavor in plants and fruit.

In a similar way that aromatherapy is known as an effective form of stress or anxiety relief, THC and terpenes working together relax or stimulate your senses. A chemical reaction occurs between your body and the presence of terpenes combined with THC to produce varying effects.

Overall, we’re still not completely sure what all terpenes can do to help (or harm) the body. So far, we know about the presence of the endocannabinoid system. This system allocates THC and terpenes to different sites on the body to amplify the therapeutic aspects of the herb in a process known as the “entourage effect.” 

Popular Terpenes

Myrcene

You definitely already know this terpene as it exists in lemongrass, cannabis, and even hops. This is where you’ll find prominent citrus and earthy aromas. This terp is largely associated with pain reduction, and quelling inflammation as well as muscle spasms.

 

Limonene

As the name suggests, this terpene represents the tart, yet sweet scent you’ve definitely encountered. This lemon-lime flavored terp can aid users with depression and anxiety while also containing antibiotic and antioxidant properties.

 

Alpha-Pinene

Alpha-Pinene is you guessed it—that sweet pine aroma. You can find it emanating from several coniferous trees, as well as several stinky nugs. This terpene interacts with your body by promoting memory retention and alertness. It can also be utilized to improve lung function in some patients with asthma.

 

Linalool

In more rare cases you will detect an herbal stench akin to lavender. This is the sneaky, yet helpful terpene known as linalool. Known to provide sedative and anti-anxiety properties, users with epilepsy and similar conditions should seek out cannabis products with this terp present.

 

Caryophyllene

Probably the most aromatically notorious terpene of all is caryophyllene which provides that “skunky” odor. In more classic strains you may notice this gassy aroma, taking note that it may help protect cells lining your digestive tract.

 

Humulene

In the realm of essential oils present in both hops and in cannabis, humulene is undoubtedly the culprit. If you’ve ever taken a whiff of some weed that smells like a hoppy beer, take note, because this terpene helps control your appetite as well as fight cancer cells.

 

The medical benefits of terpenes in combination with cannabinoids is a field still under heavy exploration. Other common terpenes include terpineol, eucalyptol, menthol, and citronellol that each play similar roles in affecting your body through smell and taste. As research continues, there are endless possibilities for finding holistic solutions to several medical conditions with the right kind of cannabis products.

Cannabis Strains + Products That Improve Your Sex Life!

According to a study that took place in 2017 by Stanford University,  a positive association between cannabis use and sexual frequency is seen in men and women across all demographic groups. What does this mean? There is a relation between cannabis users and their sex life!

It needs to be mentioned that cannabis users engage in sex on average, 20% more than non-users. #GettingItIn Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, there are numerous cannabis products known to enhance certain bedroom boom activities.

The right types of cannabis can provide an energizing effect to the user, enabling prolonged intimacy. Some strains will activate a type of body high that can lead to even higher pleasure. The wrong joint or blunt has been known to kill the mood though so it is important to remember that not every product is right. Several products beyond cannabis even exist to insight pleasure into your night such as infused lubricants.

Here are a few strains (and products) we believe will get you in the mood.

Durban Poison 

Durban Poison is a classic sativa strain that has long been known to uplift and energize. The chunky buds from this strain should take your focus to full and never slow you down in any physical endeavor.

Green Crack

Green Crack is the purest of sativa there is. It should definitely keep you up at night if you smoke too much of it. If you’re enjoying an afternoon of romance, this is a great strain to keep you energized before and after coitus to still have a productive evening.

Granddaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple is a classic indica strain they produce that is known to give ample body highs. After a long stressful day, a few puffs of this heavy indica will relax your muscles and ease your tensions for a cozy night filled with passion.

“O” Intimate Lubricant By Fairwinds

This is the next step in cannabis-infused sexual activity. Fairwinds makes a myriad of intelligent cannabis products that you don’t need to smoke. Among which is their “O” Intimate Lubricant which is a latex safe, high-potentcyblend of THC and CBD that provides a heightened experience for both guys and gals. You can pick up this hormone-free concoction for $40 infused with a Love Potion #9 indica strain that’s known to relax and stimulate your senses.

What Is A Vaporizer? #CatchTheRush

What Is A Vaporizer?

The idea behind vaporizers is to ignite cannabis using a heating coil instead of an open flame. A vape pen is exactly what it sounds like, a pen-shaped device that contains a rechargeable battery and heating element.

It didn’t take long for the convenience and discrete aspects of e-cigarettes to be adapted for cannabis concentrates, and it’s quickly becoming a normal way to consume cannabis. If you’re looking to get a vape pen and see what the rage is all about, here is a quick start guide for new users.

There are three kinds of vape pens you can get:

Thereare pens designed for vape cartridges. You buy the battery unit separately and the cartridges are screwed on like the lid of a beverage. The battery is recharged and reused and the cartridges are easily switched out if you want to smoke something specific in the morning and something during the night.

Second, are units designed to manually load your own cannabis or concentrate on a per hit basis. These are more advanced and left for someone who is familiar with dabbing.

Third, is a fully disposable unit with everything included. The battery, heating element and oil are all self-contained in the device and can be disposed of when it’s empty. This is the easiest entry point for vaporizing and doesn’t take much explanation. Just open the package, suck on the mouthpiece and enjoy the experience.

How To Select A Battery

If you want to avoid the full disposable unit, I suggest purchasing a push button battery. Optimum and Vuber make ok devices. The device pictured above has three different heat settings, depending on the amount of oil you want to inhale per hit or the type of cartridge you have. It has an LED light that lets you know when the battery is fully charged or dead. You can turn the device off with five quick clicks of the button. This saves power and keeps them from activating within your pocket or purse.

These usually run between $15 and $20 and can be found at most recreational shops. Find a budtender you trust and ask them for recommendations.

How To Select And Use A Cartridge

This decision can be more difficult to make because of the sheer amount of options you have. Type of concentrate, brand, and price are just a few of the options you must weigh before making a decision.

Please take into consideration that price points can be different from shop to shop, but price points for a quality half gram cartridges range from $40 to $60, usually. That seems expensive, but cartridges will last upwards of two weeks for the average user.

Using a cartridge is easy. Just line up the threads and screw it on top of the pen. Set your temperature on the battery, and push and hold the button to inhale. The LED light will light up, letting you know it’s heating and will disable automatically after each hit or after you let go of the button.

Setting the temperature is important for the vaping experience you’re looking for. The lowest temperature is designed to be as discrete as possible, uses the least amount of oil per hit and allows the strain’s taste and flavor to shine through. This setting is best for rookie vapers or smokers.

The middle setting will allow you larger hits, but you use a bit more oil and get less flavor.

The highest setting is designed for veterans who are looking to blow fat clouds and get stoned to the bone. This setting will sour the taste, use more oil, but you’re getting the largest hits possible from a vape pen.

Each setting has positives and negatives depending on your desired experience. I suggest trying them all out in every situation to see which combination best suits you.

Ganesh Vapes & GreenRush Concentrates A Winning Combination

BHO concentrates are a staple in the recreational scene. Many of the notable extraction companies use butane to extract the THC, CBD, and terpenes from the plant material which leaves the final solvent that is dabbed. The excess butane and other impurities are purged out with heat and what’s left is your concentrate.

Slight variations of extraction variables paired with different cannabis strains is what gives you all of your many concentrate varieties. The Oregonian released a story citing a study by Portland State University chemistry professor Robert Strongin. The article states carcinogens are released when terpenes present in butane hash oil (BHO) are vaporized on nails at temperatures above 750 degrees Fahrenheit and 932 degrees Fahrenheit.  Methacrolein and benzene are the carcinogens in question, respectively.

The Oregonian doesn’t specify what brand of concentrates were used in the study, only the terpene profiles and that they were BHO. “We don’t want to say things like this are just bad,” Strongin told The Oregonian. “It really depends on the user.”

The most popular type of equipment used for low temp dabbing is a type of nail called a “quartz banger,” which is a small bucket that you scoop your dabs into. Pair this with carb cap that acts as a seal to retain as much heat in the nail as possible to melt the dab and cut down on waste.  Quartz is the most popular because it heats up relatively quickly and has great retention properties.

The temperature goal for successful low temp dabbing is between 350 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit, High Times reports. This allows the cannabinoids and terpenes to melt all the way; providing the full spectrum of the strain’s effect without burning your throat and scorching the flavor.

The smaller the dab, the less you will want the nail to heat up, and vice-versa. You will know if your nail is too hot because the remnant oil will be a singed and black instead of warm and brown. It should be easily cleaned up with a Q-tip. Cleaning your nail after every dab will keep your nail fresh for months and keep your dabs tasting clean. An electronic nail provides an easier way to experience low temp dabs, but it can be costly if you want a reliable set-up. Consistently dabbing a torch and nail at low temperatures is absolutely possible, it just takes research and practice.

“Preference is part of it, but you never want to get any concentrate too hot, Linn said.” “It burns away the terpenes, which in effect takes away from the taste and the potency of the product.”

There are several factors to consider when your cooling down your nail, but the most important part is to have the same starting point for every dab; so heat the nail red hot, until it’s slightly glowing orange. A nail that is visibly glowing orange or red will be around 800 degrees Fahrenheit, per High Times. Let it cool down from this point for anywhere from 45 seconds to a minute and 30 seconds depending on the thickness of your nail and the size of your dab. Linn explains there will be a trial and error period for each nail and type of solvent (rosin, distillate, shatter, etc,) to zero in the heat to maximize the taste and effect.

“Most people take minimally sized dabs compared to some of the dabs I’ve taken,” Linn continued, “it depends on where people are at with their tolerance level.”
