This Critical Jack cannabis food flavoring specifically for beverages by Cali Terpenes is a combination of terpenes with the same aromatic composition (terpene extract) as the amazing cannabis strain Critical Jack, a cross between the legenary Critical and Jack Herer.
This complex flavoring was created with more hydro-soluble power than the Critical Jack food flavoring, designed to provide an even flavor and aroma to all types of drinks with aromas that exactly replicate those of cannabis strains without producing the same psychoactive effect.
High quality prime materials were used in its creation, from GMO-free crops, no pesticides or contaminating agents involved.
Cali Terpenes’ food grave flavorings don’t contain any solvents or additives and do not come from Cannabis plants; they don’t contain cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBG, CBN…).
All of our aromas are food-grade an are made, packaged and labelled under all of the most restrictive active food and safety guidelines in the EU and USA. If you are going to be using these aromas in your business (restaurant, food production etc) get in touch with us.
As of now, we have 6 special beverage terpenes, although if the designated use is cocktails or for making food, you can use any of the 47 liposoluble cannabis food flavorings found in our catalogue.
If you want to make e-liquids, cannabis products or others using these aromas, remember that the best format for such products is our vaping terpenes.
Critical Jack's terpene profile by Cali Terpenes can add an intense aroma and flavor to all types of drinks, similar to lemon citrus at times, with hints of pine and a clear herbal aftertaste.
These terpenes are 100% pure, so they need to be handled with caution and should never be consumed without being mixed with the destined product (except for cold tastings, in which terpenes are used in their pure state).
Once diluted in the desired product and in the right proportion, terpenes are 100% safe and provide aromas and other benefits.
1ml terpenes = 40 drops (0.025ml per 1ml dropper drop), so 1 drop of terpenes represents around 0.25% approx. of 10ml of liquid base:
1 drop in 10ml = 0.25%
2 drops in 10 ml = 0,50%
4 drops in 10ml = 1%
8 drops in 10ml = 2%
12 drops in 10ml = 3%
*It's recommended to test quantities starting at the lowest, as our terpenes have an easily intense aroma and flavor when used.

The correct proportion of our terpenes (cannabis aromas) recommended for food and beverages is a lot lower than that used in e-liquids and cannabis products.
The amount of terpenes always depends on the base of the food or beverage being made, as well as the process used.
We recommend using terpenes during the cold processes and when there are no pressure changes (for example, vacuum drying) as this stops possible evaporation and allows for them to fully dissolve and be absorbed into the food or beverage.
Some examples of proportions used in food and beverages are:
Ice cream: from 0.025 to 0.1ml for approx. 1kg depending on the desired intensity
Beer: from 0.01 to 0.05ml terpenes for approx. 1L of beer, depending on the type of beer, the point of the process in which terpenes are added, and the desired intensity.
Soda water: from 0.01 to 0.05ml for approx. 1L of water, depending on the desired intensity.
Oils: from 0.1 to 0.3ml terpenes per 1L of oil, approx., depending on the intensity of the oil and the desired aromatic intensity.
Honey: from 0.1 to 0.5ml of terpenes for 1 to 2kg of honey approx. depending on the intensity of the honey and the aromatic intensity desired.
Chocolate: from 0.25 to 1ml per approx. 1KG, depending on the type of chocolate and aromatic intensity desired.
*In most cases, letting terpenes sit for a while can help them settle better. For example, honey with terpenes has more flavor 24h after applying compared to freshly applied.
Our terpene profile packaging has safety valves, anti-leak technology and screw tops.
After using the product we recommend placing each element back to avoid possible terpene evaporation or contamination.
Terpenes are volatile compounds, their recommended storage is in a fridge (approx. 7 degrees C) to avoid evaporation when use.
The temperature at which terpenes are handled should never go over 60ºC to avoid evaporating the most volatile terpenes.
Keep terpenes in their original container at all times, as the material used (dark glass that doesn't allow UV rays through) is designed to better preserve thermo or photosensitive products. This protects them from changes in temperature, cross contamination etc (terpenes can act as a diluent and corrode materials such as plastic).
