Terpenes: The Science Behind Your Favorite Bud

Terpenes are the reason you love your favorite bud. ‘Incredible Extracts’ is one of the biggest names in cannabis edible infusion and extracts, and they’ve learned a thing or two about harvesting the power of terpenes. Extracting and harvesting different types of terpenes is their specialty, but what the f*ck even are terpenes? Terpenes are the organic compounds that exist in plants that give things smell and taste. They’re super common in everyday life, just think of your favorite smell - there are terpenes creating that aroma. Terpenes can be from blueberries, a rose or a nug of Sour Diesel, but that’s what you’re smelling. By themselves, terpenes don’t necessarily get you ‘high,’ but combined with THC and your body chemistry, they’re what makes each high special. ‘Incredible Flavors,’ is their line of vape pens with the same combination of terpenes they harvest from specific strains. One drop can flavor a bunch of pens, so the ‘orange soda’ pen tastes exactly like…orange soda. And that’s just scratching the surface of the role terpenes play in different strains of cannabis.
