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.

Best Practices For Buying Weed In Washington

Many people are currently visiting pot shops and asking for the weed with the highest THC. While THC is a huge part of the cannabis purchasing equation, there is much more to be looking for than just high percentages. When you’re in Washington, THC only matters so much due to the inconsistencies of the testing at the state-certified labs.

This makes someone’s experience and budtender feedback much more important. One of the first things you should be looking for at weed stores is who the actual experts are. You’ve got to find budtenders you can trust!

Find Budtenders You Trust

We’ve all been to a grocery store or maybe to the mall and experienced a terrible employee. The cannabis industry is not immune to budtenders being terrible employees. They’re not all equal and some are a combination of rude, uneducated, and inexperienced.  Just because you love being high, doesn’t mean you’re educated and up on all things cannabis, it just means you love getting high.

GreenRush Strains For Cinco De Mayo

Look and listen for a budtender that is educated about the products you’re asking about. Millions of people use cannabis. If a budtender can only describe weed as “fire” or “dank”, you might want to take what they say with a grain of salt. Find someone who can communicate with you and other people. Being able articulate strain knowledge in a digestible manner is huge and many stores overlook this valuable asset.

Locate a budtender that can teach you about flavor profiles and terpenes, different genetics that you’ve mentioned you like, how concentrates are extracted and created, and the differences between concentrates. You can’t look at the product outside of packaging in Washington, so budtenders are extra important to relay product information. To find someone who knows all of this stuff is tricky. It takes time, patience, and you’ve got to be willing to be taught something new.

Cannabis Company Knowledge

There are over a thousand cannabis brands in Washington and many of them offer more than one strain or product. The majority of them can be found online via their website or social media. These companies utilize these platforms to educate consumers on new products, current offerings, deals, retail and other partners, plus much more. If you look for transparent brands that do a solid job of communicating product information, there’s a good chance you’re consuming safer products.

Terpenes > THC Numbers

People are still learning about terpenes and why they matter. Although THC packs the psychoactive effects, terpenes and THC combined dictates the specific effects strain by strain. Terpenes produce the aromas we smell and taste with cannabis. Citrus aromas come from terpenes myrcene and limonene. Hazes have terpinolene. Pine aromas come from pinene. Some of these terpenes help more THC cross the blood-brain barrier, which is why a strain can be more effective, despite having low THC numbers. If you find out what terpenes were present in the weed you like, you can shop specifically for that with other brands and strains.

Be A Shallow Shopper

Not all cannabis is equal. In our state, the way you produce and process your cannabis can be the difference between sitting on a shelf for a year or selling out in a single day. If the weed looks good and you can smell it through the bag or through the glass, buy it. Simple as that.

If the cannabis buds are covered in trichomes or if the flowers feel or sound dense when you shake the container,  buy it. Even if the cannabis ends up being a poor smoke you’ll at least know more about what you’re going for. Good looking weed with lower THC numbers is generally always a better situation than higher THC cannabis that is cheaper, more dry, and outdoor.

Level Up Your Experience!

The overwhelming majority of people still don’t know a damn thing about cannabis. THC matters. Terpenes matter. Moisture, hand-trimming, and trichomes all matter! Until you know more about your cannabis and begin experiencing the different types of flavors and highs, you can really only learn so much. Go find a pot shop, locate a budtender you vibe with, and take a leap of faith.
