Last Updated on September 28, 2021

Cannabis enthusiasts around the world have been trying to find different cannabis-related products to try for decades now. Sure, cannabis flower remains a holy grail of the weed world, but slowly and surely, users wanted more than that. So, the manufacturers came up with different products. Edibles, kief, resin, and so on. They are all products that are now widely spread across the market and have a huge fan base. Even though they are mostly considered extracts and aren’t tailored for everyone because they are powerful and have high THC levels, the community has accepted them like nothing before, and they crave more. Let’s face it, human beings can never settle, and they always want to find something better, stronger. With that being said, they are always craving more, and it seems that a new product that hits the market might be what they are looking for. We are talking about terp sauce, a new go-to product for every cannabis lover who wants to try something out of this world.

In this article, we’ll discuss terp sauce. We’ll see why it is so popular among cannabis lovers and different from any other product currently on the market. We will also cover some of the main aspects which make terp sauce so unique and give you a short guide on how you can make your own, even in the comfort of your own home! But first thing first, let’s see what terp sauce is.

What Is Terp Sauce?

If you want to explain what terp sauce is to someone who isn’t very educated on the topic of cannabis, you can say that it’s a cannabis extract, a very strong one. However, let’s presume that if you are reading this, you are an experienced cannabis user who knows his stuff and wants to know in detail what terp sauce is. Well, here it is.

Terp Sauce is one of the newest forms of marijuana consumption which consists of a high terpene profile, strong flavor, and which can be mixed with other cannabis extracts. Even though people usually call it terp sauce, it has a more professional name – HTFSE which stands for High Terpene Full Spectrum Extract. 

You might now wonder what terpene is since it’s mentioned several times and it’s in the name of this product. Well, think of all the fruits you know. Apples, oranges, bananas. They all have a different scent that is unique to that specific fruit. This exactly is what terpenes are responsible for in nature. For example, take the smell of pines in the forest. We can sense that smell thanks to something called pinene, which is a pine tree’s terpenes. The same goes for other smells since they are all derived from a specific terpene present in the plant.

Cannabis plants are no different. Their terpenes are produced in the famous trichomes, small hairs which are located on their surface. They are generated in the same place where more famous THC and CBD are also generated, so you can see why trichomes are essential. 

Even though terpenes are the leading cause of the plants’ aroma, color, and smell, their effect stretches even further than that. They are also responsible for some of the effects which you get from consuming cannabis and if there weren’t for them, you wouldn’t feel pain relief for example or get anti-inflammatory benefits.

Will Terp Sauce Get You High?

If one wants to try terp sauce, indeed, they expect to get high from it. After all, why else would you consume such an extract if you wouldn’t want that sweet head above clouds feeling? However, even though it’s widely known that terp sauce has impressive medical benefits and can help patients get the best out of cannabis, you’ll still get high from it. In fact, you will get more high from it than you would from a regular cannabis joint. After all, terp sauce is a concentrate and we all know how potent concentrates can be.

You can find terp Sauce in many THC extracts. This way, the THC extract becomes stronger, and all the good stuff inside it is amplified by x2. The vital thing to note here is that a high terpene profile doesn’t necessarily mean that the extract will also have a high THC quantity. It all depends on the mixture in the concentrate and the way it was mixed. But, rest assured, if you pick a mix that is labeled as high terpenes and high THC percentage one, you will have a hell of a good time. Some products out there have over 40% of THC inside them, and that’s an amount that will make your head spin. On the other hand, if you don’t want to get high and want to experience all the good medical benefits you can get from cannabis, maybe you should try CBD-dominant terp sauce. It’s a great way to consume cannabis by only experiencing things such as pain relief, relaxation, and uplifting without really getting high and becoming a couch potato. 

Can You Make Terp Sauce at Home?

Now that you know everything necessary regarding terp sauce, you might be wondering where you can buy it. In Canada and the US, there are a lot of dispensaries that offer quality Terp Sauce online. Cannalfyft is worth mentioning as it has a wide range of products available and guarantees top quality. So many people buy from this dispensary and if you choose it as your weed supplier, you won’t make a mistake.

But, maybe you don’t want to buy Terp Sauce from a licensed shop, or you aren’t any weed shops in your country. Perhaps you want to be a little chemist and make terp sauce yourself. If that is the case, you will be glad to know that it’s possible. Even though it’s always a good idea to buy your cannabis products from places that are professional and have been selling for years, you can always make something in the comfort of your own home. So, how can you do it?

In order to create the best possible terp sauce, you need to have the best possible cannabis buds. This means that you shouldn’t be a miser and that you should open your pocket for some premium buds: premium buds = top-quality terp sauce. Now, let’s say that you got your premium buds and that they are ready to be transformed into terp sauce. You think that you need to snap your fingers and the terp sauce will appear? Sorry to burst your bubble.

First, you need to pick a method for creating terps sauce. There are a lot of methods out there and many individuals develop extracts in their specific way but if you want to play it safe, the BHO extraction technique is a way to go. BHO stands butane hash oil and many believe that it’s the best technique to get the largest possible diamonds for your extract. We won’t cover the BHO in detail, if you want to learn more about it and the steps which you should follow, you can google it. There are many tutorials out there, and the process itself is pretty straightforward. You don’t have to be Walter White to do it. 

The step which goes after BHO extraction is the purging process. This process ensures that you remove valuable oils from the buds. With the help of heat off-gas solvent, you extract the oils and you need to place them in a jar where you will store it for 2-3 weeks in a dark place. During these weeks, something major happens. This is called the resting phase, and while it lasts, the separation will occur. Thanks to the pressure present in the jar, the crystals will form and slowly but surely sink to the bottom of the jar where they will be covered with a sticky layer, terpenes. 

Once you see that this process occurred, you need to separate the crystals formed from the terpenes that lie on top of it. Next, you need to purge the liquid with heat to no longer appear to be cloudy. Finally, store them in a container to preserve the freshness when they look as you would expect from them. And, there you have it. Your homemade terp sauce is ready to go, and it’s waiting for cannabis lovers to consume it! Just be careful, it will probably have a high level of THC inside it.

To Conclude

To sum up, terp sauce is something you should try out if you are an experienced cannabis enthusiast. It’s a great add-on to your collection of cannabis products and even though it’s a bit more expensive we believe that it’s worth the cost. You can buy it in almost any online dispensary, but the process isn’t complex if you wish to create it yourself. Just follow the short guide mentioned in this article or a youtube video, and you will be good to go.
