- Terpenes are part of the essential oils of plenty of plants, flowers and fruits, such as orange, lemon, pepper or cannabis and they provide smell and flavour.

- However, cannabis terpenes might also be found in other plants, flowers and fruits.
In Cali Terpenes, we faithfully reproduce the different cannabis aromatic profiles, made of isolated terpenes of organic and vegetal origin.
Cannabis terpenes profiles are our flagship products, which gives life to our big project.

What are cannabis terpenes profiles used for?
Terpenes are used in a wide range of cannabis industry products.
In general, they are used in cannabis extractions and extracts, in vaporizing products and in cannabis flowers or hemp.
Cannabis extractions and extracts
There are several types of extracts which derived from cannabis, in which Cali Terpenes are added to enhance its scent and flavour:
- Mechanical extractions (hashish, ice-o-lator, dry hash, dry sift)
- Extractions with solvents (BHO, PHO, Co2,)
- Cannabinoids distillates (distillates from CBD or THC)
- Extractions by pressure and temperature (Rosin or rosintech).
- Cannabis tinctures (CBD or THC tinctures in olive oil, coconut oil, etc.)
In addition, terpenes change the effects of cannabinoids. For example, if you add the terpenes of a sativa like Jamaican Dream to a distillate from THC of any variety, this distillate will adopt the typical effects of Jamaican Dream.
This allows, with the same base product, to obtain completely different products in scent, flavour and effect.
It is advisable to use between 1 and 4% of terpenes in extractions and extracts of cannabis, and ideally to carry out tests with the lowest proportion and increase it gradually if necessary.
This means to use a MAXIMUM of 1 drop per each 1gram of cannabis extraction, being advisable to carry out tests with 1 drop per 2grams or 1 drop per 3 grams.
The proportion of terpenes to be used might vary depending on the desirable intensity, the type of extraction, the time of the extraction, etc. But in any case, we recommend using a maximum of 4%.
Vaping cannabis products
The use of terpenes in cannabis products for vaping is widespread.
Most products for vaping such as the popular ‘Clear’ (distillate of THC or CBD) which is vaporized in ‘Oil Pens’ or ‘Vape Pens’ are so pure that they don’t contain terpenes.
This is the reason why terpenes add flavour and scent not only to extracts but also to herbs for vaping.
In vaping products such as distillates of cannabinoids, it is advisable to use around 2 or 3% of terpenes.
Cannabis flowers or hemp:
Using terpenes to add flavour to hemp flowers (CBD flowers) or cannabis flowers (THC flowers) is spreading more and more.
For several reasons, sometimes flowers lose or do not have any smell or taste and with terpenes these properties might be improved easily.
The proportion of terpenes to add to cannabis flowers usually varies from 1 to 4% but the most important is the professionalism of the method which you use, which will make you use more or fewer terpenes.
If you have questions about using them in flowers, contact our technical team.
In the food and drinks industry, terpenes profiles have great potential.
The use of terpenes in food or drinks enhance enormously the organoleptic quality of very different products.
We have more than 45 different varieties in our catalogue, which means 45 new flavours and scents that might provide an added value to sauces, snacks, ice-creams and dairy products, sweets, alcoholic drinks, soft drinks, etc.
The proportion of terpenes to use in food varies enormously because it certainly depends on the type of food or drink that is used.
Generally speaking, the proportion is usually between 0.01 and 0.03% for drinks and between 0,01 and 0,3% for the different types of food.
*If you are aiming at producing food or drinks with our terpenes (cannabis aromas) for food, you will need terpenes packed and labelled for food use, according to the current regulations.
We also provide water-soluble versions, perfect for beverage production or cocktail bars.
Cannabis terpenes profiles can be used to add flavour and scent to vaping liquid basis and create your own vaping liquids (e-liquids) with the flavour of different varieties of cannabis.
Every day there are more users who join vaping to give up combustion and the risks associated with it.
We recommend adding a proportion of terpenes to the liquid base between 1 and 4% maximum (being 2-3% the most common proportion).
This will mean 1-4ml per every 100ml of vaporizing base.
We also recommend adding a maximum of 20% of vegetal glycerine in order to reduce the vaping risks as much as possible and to avoid sweetening the e-liquid taste too much.
Making your own e-liquid is very easy but if you have any questions, contact us.
In the cosmetics industry terpenes have been used for several years but what is innovative is the use of cannabis terpenes profiles.
Our terpenes will add an incredible flavour to all sort of cosmetics such as creams, balsams, shower gels and shampoos as well as benefitting from the properties of the terpenes, not only the entourage effect but also the fungicide, bactericide and anti-inflammatory effects.
The proportion for this type of products might vary significantly but, in any case, no more than 4% is required.
