Hemp Depot Hemp Terpenes provide a highly versatile way to enhance CBD and cannabis product formulations. Terpenes are fragrant oils that give cannabis its aromatic diversity. These oils are secreted in the flower’s sticky resin glands, the same ones that produce THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. Terpenes are by no means unique to cannabis; they can be found in many other herbs, fruits, and plants as well. The final processing step in the refinement of extracted oils can be provided in the form of an isolate fraction. The resulting light yellow liquid has the concentrated terpene profile from the whole hemp plant material. The terpene content is in the 99% range.

What Are Hemp Terpenes?
Terpenes are naturally-occurring compounds found in cannabis, herbs, fruits, and other plants as well. These compounds are responsible for the distinct aroma produced in cannabis. Each hemp strain has its own unique terpene profile which is accountable for the varying scent profiles. Terpenes are produced inside of these specialized hairs, referred to as trichomes, which are located on the surface of the leaves and stems of cannabis plants. Hemp terpenes are organic hydrocarbons that represent the main component of the sticky resin of the plant. They are produced by the same glands that produce other compounds like cannabinoids. The distinctive scents found in hemp can also be found in numerous plant life like berries, pepper, citrus, and more. Hemp terpenes are not only responsible for the crop’s aroma and color, but also work synergetically with cannabinoids.
Hemp Terpene Benefits
Hemp terpenes can be formulated across any CBD, cannabinoid, or cannabis product. The isolated terpenes provide endless formulation possibilities so that companies can easily create their own proprietary formulas. Our isolated terpenes mimic the whole plant material of hemp. Terpenes may be mixed and matched to create unique scent profiles for your CBD products.
What Product Formulations Are Possible With Hemp Terpenes?
Hemp terpenes can be formulated into ingestible, vape, smokeable, sublingual, topical, and suppository applications. Full-spectrum crude oils will already contain the strain’s original terpene profile but companies may add additional terpenes to these formulations. Terpenes are ideal for adding to distillate and isolate product formulations.
