Where are Terpenes found?

Terpenes, found abundantly in various plants, take center stage in the cannabis world due to their heightened presence in these plants. Our focus is not merely on scent but on the profound impact terpenes have on the therapeutic qualities of cannabis and Hexahydrocannabinoid (HHC) products.


How are Terpenes Extracted and Created?

Understanding the extraction and creation process of terpenes adds another layer to appreciating their presence in cannabis products. Hereby we provide you Cannabis Terpenes Exploration Guide:


Terpenes can be widespread through various methods, commonly including steam distillation, hydrodistillation, and solvent extraction. Steam distillation is a prevalent technique where steam is passed through the plant material, carrying the volatile terpenes with it. The condensed steam is then collected, separating the essential oil, including terpenes.


In some cases, terpenes are recreated or isolated in a laboratory setting. This process involves using precursor molecules from natural sources or synthesizing them from scratch. This allows for precise control over the terpene profile, ensuring consistency and the ability to tailor the aroma and effects.


Terpene Profiles

Each cannabis strain and HHC product boasts a distinct terpene profile. These profiles, akin to a fingerprint, influence not only the aroma and flavor but also the potential effects. Knowing your terpene profiles empowers you to choose products tailored to your preferences.

Held CBD’s HHC disposables, such as Acan Gold and LOOM, showcase a thoughtful blend of 95% HHC and 5% terpenes. This delicate balance aims to capture the essence of both cannabinoids and terpenes, creating a product that is not just about consumption but a nuanced exploration of nature’s compounds.
