How to Vape Terpenes


Terpenes provide the aroma and flavor of cannabis and influence its effects by interacting with the cannabinoids.

Have you ever seen those tiny glandular hairs that cover the surface of the cannabis plant? They are called trichomes and they are responsible for the production of terpenes in cannabis.

Yes, you can vape terpenes, but if you are planning to just mix the terpenes together and start vaping this is where I’m going to stop you. Terpenes should not be consumed by themselves.

·         Terpene of choice

·         Cutting agent

Let us go into a little more detail about creating your terpene-infused vape oil. Do you have an e-liquid that you just want to add the terpenes to, or do you need to start from the beginning?

If you are starting from the beginning, you will need to do the following:

  • A carrier liquid
  • Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin or MCT is often used as the carrier liquid but please use them with caution

If you want a vape juice that is just about the flavor, you can add the terpenes. First, start with a one percent terpene solution and add the cutting agent if necessary. Next, you can add nicotine, CBD, or THC because terpenes do not contain it.

Before adding anything please make sure that the materials you are using are from trusted resources and that you also understand how much you should use.
