Terp sauce in Canada is one of the more popular concentrates today because it isn’t just a potent extract with intense psychoactive effects – it’s the most delicious, full-spectrum concentrate there is. Terp sauce is extracted from cannabis flowers as a highly concentrated terpene syrup. This saucy extracted substance is typically dabbed or vaped, but for some cannabis connoisseurs the full-spectrum of flavors of this concentrate makes for an incredibly intense aromatic & flavorful experience through ingestion.
There are different grades of terp sauce, so answering the question “what is terp?” might change according to the type you’re used to. All terpene sauces are liquid extracts that are combined with CBDA, CBD, THCA and/or THC isolate solids. Sometimes other cannabinoids are mixed in like CBG, CBN or THCV, but it all depends on the extractors’ preference. Terpenes are typically extracted using CO2, butane or other solvents. What makes terp sauce so highly sought after is that the extraction contains such high concentrations of a wide array of terpenes, in addition to potent levels of CBD, THC or other cannabinoids.
Once the terpene extraction and distillate have been combined, the terp sauce forms a kind of soft, waxy, sugar-like mixture. This makes terp sauce a chunky, runny almost soupy like concentrate; some terpene sauces are more on the viscous side too.
Terpene sauce is often confused with live resin because they both contain full-spectrum concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes. Live resin is more of a wax-like substance that involves sub-critical freezing during extraction. Live resin also contains a wide array of cannabinoids and terpenes, but when compared to terp sauce it’s no contest. Terpene sauce has the highest terpene potencies of all the concentrates, whereas an extract like live resin will typically be higher in THC contents overall.
Why do people rave so much about terp sauce in Canada? Both live resin and terp sauce get a lot of praise amongst experienced cannabis lovers. Where terpene sauce really stands out is the amount of terpenes and the complexity of flavors, aromas and sensory experiences you can have when you consume this delicious sauce. Terp sauce is sticky, saucy, sweet, sour, sharp, subtle, piney, fruity and skunky all at different times, or sometimes all at once. What is terp sauce? It’s the ultimate cannabis experience, that’s what!
