This product is a THC-free strain specific cannabis derived aromatherapy therapies and essential oil. The full spectrum terpene profiles are derived naturally from the plant in a solventless and chemical-free process. The pure terpenes are in concentrated form and intended to be used as a diluent in conjunction with food edibles, raw juices, tinctures, lotions, perfumes, aromatherapy and of course vaporization. That’s just what we did. And we used our new Electro e-nail from Cloud V. This thing heats up like a vape pen, has two temperature settings and comes with a super thick glass bubbler attachment. Hate using a blowtorch? You’ll dig the Electro.
Genetics: Most people think that Lemon Kush is a cross between Master Kush and Lemon Joy. However many breeders have their own take like Alien Genetics who say their Lemon Kush strain is a cross of Lemon G, a prized strain from Ohio, and an Afghan Kush.
Appearance: These Lemon Kush pure terpenes are as clear as water. They’re also just about as thick.
Smell: The Terpenes have a strong earthy aroma. There’s a hint of lemon citrus, but the musty, earthy smell is what’s noticeable up front. There’s also a hint of skunk. Actually imagine all those flavors mingling in your favorite sushi restaurant and that’s about what these terpenes smell-like. This Lemon Kush terpene could be used in aromatherapy applications. Grab one of those cool aromatherapy diffusers (dude they look like lava lamps, only you can put marijuana terps in ’em) then sit back, relax and inhale the depression away. Calgon’s got nothing on marijuana and depression, dude.
Flavor: These Lemon Kush terpenes taste very lemony and floral. Think fresh lemon blossoms. There’s also that familiar flavor of skunk and some musky earthy tones, but the delicate floral lemon flavors are potent. Instead of ordinary water we used Piece Water—a flavorless and odorless mineral, vegetable and fruit extract liquid. It’s thicker than water and seems to create more tension increasing filtration, but the coolest thing about it is that it keeps your piece nice and clean. We tried this stuff out with some Sunset Sherbert Live Resin Sugar Wax from F.O.B. aka Fresh of the Bud Extracts. You’ve heard of live resin, right? Well basically you take the weed plant and freeze it right after harvest—instead of allowing it to try. Why? Fresh flavors, dude. Flash freezing preserves all those tasty terpenes and glistening trichomes, dude. Also Sunset Sherbert is related to on of our favorite weed strains, Girl Scout Cookies. The Sunset Sherbert strain is unique. It’s a tasty cross of OG Kush, Cherry Pie, and Durban Poison. Crossed with an Indica known as Pink Panties. As you can see in the video at first we dunked the sugar in the vial. Next we tried dripping the Lemon Kush terps on to the wax with a Stuff Stoners Like rolling paper and buds below as a catch tray. Waste not want not, right?
High: There is none. These Lemon Kush terps contain zero THC, so there’s no high-causer present at all—just pure, unadulterated flavor. The product packaging didn’t list the THC content, but the flavor was quite light and mellow so it made for a great backdrop for the straight terpenes. The terps themselves delivered their own psychoactive effects. They translated into an almost sativa-like alertness and definitely added a little pick-me-up along with the tons of flavor.
Overall: If you love the taste of weed, you’ve got to try straight cannabis terpenes. There’s nothing quite like it. There are a lot of ways to enjoy fresh cannabis terpens—from adding them to food to an aromatherapy emitter, but vaping them is an option as well. So if you wanted to just taste the essence of your favorite strain, or even make a perfume from it, scoring straight Terpenes is the way to do it. Overall this stuff is expensive, but it’s a treat and like wasabi on sushi it’ll sure give your weed a fat flavor punch.
