Live Terpenes™ are extracted from complex terpene-rich cultivars that are bred in compliance with the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (Farm Bill); which legalizes hemp to be treated as any commodity for transport, import and export. The chemovars are backcrossed for the removal of any THC while maintaining a unique flavor profile, thus leaving a limited availability of each batch from a number of factors- field size/yield/phenotype etc.
Why is live terpenes so expensive? Terpenes are a highly regulated set of compounds that are safe to use being FDA and GRAS approved.
Other extracts, are made from the dried and cured flower then extracted using subcritical Co2 or Solvents (ethanol, propane, butane) requiring the highly flammable solvent to be purged, which can cause a loss or degradation.
Live Terpenes™ are full spectrum terpene profile with none of the downsides typically found in most common extraction manufacturing methods.
How do Terpenes work? Terpenes work by binding to the Olfactory system and neurotransmitters and receptors in the brain which regulates emotions. Terpenes deliver positive interactions within our bodies dopamine and serotonin systems to alter our moods in subtle ways that can increase cognitive function, via heightened perception and concentration.
