What Is Terp Sauce? 

Terp sauce is a form of cannabis concentrate with a high impact and aromatic flavor profile. The main ingredient in is terpenes, which are the essential oils in the cannabis plant. As a high terpene full-spectrum extract (HTFSE), this concentrate is a combination of crystallized THCA (the precursor component to THC) and syrupy terpenes.

Because of this unique consistency and combination of cannabinoids, terp sauce is not like other concentrates. Live resin has a naturally high terpene content because of its whole-plant extraction process, but this sauce still dominates in the highest level of terpenes. The consistency of cannabis sauce is similar to jelly or marmalade, very runny and sticky in texture. It sometimes look slightly amber in color, but overall the appearance is inconsistent due to different textures and compounds present. No matter the appearance and texture of cannabis sauce, what truly matters is its extreme flavor.

Also known as “cannabis sauce,” this concentrate contains around 60% THC and reaches at least 13% terpene content. Terp sauce is created through an extraction process that preserves the THCA cannabinoids and terpenes in the plant. As one of the most potent extracts available in today’s cannabis market, terp sauce can be hard to come by.

What Are Terpenes? 

Terpenes are the key ingredient in what makes this sauce what it is. Cannabis strains are composed of different terpenes that establish unique characteristics. In fact, terpenes play a large role not just in cannabis plants, but plants in general. Every single plant, fruit, and vegetable contains a certain level of terpenes.

For instance, lemons and pine trees both have significantly high terpene content, making them bold in aroma and taste. Over the years, science has explored the different existing terpenes and their unique therapeutic benefits. For example, linalool is prominent in lavender and known to give a calming aroma and soothing effect. Caryophyllene contributes to the spiciness of black pepper often tasted in cannabis. There are a huge amount of terpenes that all offer different benefits and aromas, but terpenes play an even deeper aspect in cannabis that effects our high experience.

In a newfound phenomenon known as “the entourage effect”, the THC and terpenes in cannabis interact together to define a specifically unique type of high. The entourage effect defines the kind of effects felt from certain strains. For instance, some dominant terpenes play a part in whether you feel buzzed or relaxed after smoking. Additionally, there are even more flavonoids, cannabinoids, and terpenes present in cannabis that contribute to the effects felt when consumed.

Overall, the entourage effect suggests that the combination and interaction of different cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis provide an exclusively unique high. The scientific exploration of terpenes has provided evidence of the magical power of plants.

How Is Terp Sauce Made?

A high-quality strain with potent THC levels is commonly used for terp sauce. This optimizes the flavor and abundance of THCA and terpenes that will be preserved. The process of making terp sauce is initially the same process as most other cannabis concentrates and extracts.

The live cannabis plant is pressurized in hot or freezing temperatures. To extract the desired cannabinoids, a solvent element is used. Butane Hash Oil (BHO) is a common extraction method that involves placing the cannabis plant in a confined tube and pressurizing it with butane, suspending a goldish liquid of cannabinoids as a result. This extraction method removes all extra elements of the plant while preserving the good stuff.

As pressure builds, crystallized THCA diamonds form as it separates from the fats and lipids of the plant. It takes 2-3 weeks for this process to occur. This combination of the separated terpenes and THCA crystals create the product of terp sauce.

How Do I Smoke Terp Sauce? 

You can smoke terp sauce the same way you can any other extract, concentrate, or oil. However, new users should remember to start in small and low doses. Terpene infused cartridges are popular with users who enjoy vaping cannabis as a form of consumption. Vaporizer pens and batteries help make smoking this sauce discrete and easy. Terp sauce may be hard to find in every local dispensary, but when it is available it ranges around $30-$60 in price. When smoking terp sauce, it is crucial to properly control the temperature when heating the sauce, to prevent burning the flavor and taste.

Stoners also use dab rigs, dab pens, and e-nails for smoking terp sauce. The main quality of terp sauce is the abundant and bold terpene flavor, so any way to enjoy its rich profile is the way to go!
