Understanding Cannabis-Derived Terpenes and Full Spectrum Terpenes

The world of cannabis is dominated by strains, but people in the industry know that a truly great product combines great strains with high-quality cannabis derived terpenes. This article will explain what cannabis derived terpenes and full spectrum terpenes are and what they do.

Cannabis-Derived Terpenes: The Essence of Cannabis

Terpenes are organic compounds found in fruit and plants, including cannabis. They're what makes plants smell and taste the way they do. Cannabis-derived terpenes are terpenes that come specifically from cannabis. These terpenes can be added to vapes, carts, and other cannabis-derived products to enhance their flavor, smells, and effects.

Cannabis-Derived Terpenes: Why Are They Important?

Flavor and Aroma Enhancement: Cannabis-derived terpenes are like seasoning. Terpenes can be added to vapes, edibles, tinctures, flower, or any other kind of cannabis product to enhance their flavor and smell.

Therapeutic Benefits: Terpenes offer potential therapeutic benefits of their own. Mycerene, for example, is believed to have relaxing properties, while limonene can boost one's mood.


All-Natural: Cannabis-derived terpenes are extracted from cannabis plants, making them 100% natural. Adding natural terpenes to vape carts or other cannabis products is a way to naturally enhance the flavor of your product without adding any artificial ingredients or flavorings.

Choosing Cannabis-Derived Terpenes for Sale

There are quite a few different terpene distributors in the USA and choosing the right source of terpenes is imperative for creating quality products. We started Xtra Laboratories because we weren't satisfied with the quality of terpenes that were on the market and we knew we could do it better. Here's the things you should look for and the standards we hold ourselves to for all of our terpenes:


Purity: Make sure the terpenes you're buying are extracted safely and cleanly. Most importantly, make sure there aren't any fillers like PEG, PG, VG, or MCT included on the labels.


Strain: Most terpene providers will include lineage information stating which strains their terpenes are sourced from. Lineage is important because it informs some of the effects of the terpenes and also gives you a good idea of the kind of products the terpenes will complement.


As the cannabis industry continues to evolve, the importance of cannabis-derived terpenes grows with it. For those eager to explore the world of terpenes, Xtra Laboratories  stands as a trusted guide, providing the finest cannabis-derived terpenes  for sale. There are a few major categories of terpenes. This includes full spectrum terpenes, live resin terpenes, and

Benefits of Full Spectrum Terpenes

Beyond their characteristic aromas, research suggests that terpenes may impart beneficial medical effects. Moreover, when terpenes are combined with other cannabis compounds like THC and CBD, they exhibit an "entourage effect," potentiating each other's actions for enhanced therapeutic benefits.


Full-spectrum terpenes, crafted by Xtra Laboratories, rely on high-tech tools like genetic mapping and proprietary extraction techniques to deliver consistent and exceptional results. They offer authentic flavor profiles characterized by longer draws and enhanced effects, contributing to a premium product experience.

Full Spectrum vs. Live Resin Terpenes: Understanding the Differences

Live Resin Terpenes: Extracted from flash-frozen cannabis flower, preserving the terpenes at their peak of potency and flavor. Live resin is usually a little more expensive as flash freezing and the different extraction process is more costly and time consuming. The end result is a richer flavor and scent profile that elevates anything you add the terpenes to.


Full-Spectrum Terpenes: Crafted from high-quality cured hemp flower using a more traditional approach, offering an authentic flavor profile at a more accessible rate.


Xtra Laboratories utilizes genetic mapping and in-house extraction techniques to analyze cannabis-derived terpenes, creating custom blends that cater to specific needs and preferences, delivering outstanding flavor and effects.
