It’s that time of year again, and consumers are looking for an edge on their resolutions. Discover which terpene blends will give your customers the energy and motivation they’re looking for.
January is all about new beginnings and resolutions. That’s why consumers are looking for products that will give them the edge they need to crush their goals. Maybe they’re looking for an energetic boost to get them through workouts. Perhaps they’re searching for something to enhance creativity for new projects. Whatever their goals, consumers often try a variety of products to give them an advantage.
To make sure they’re reaching for YOUR products, you must ensure your products do two things. First, they have to stand out from the competition. Second, they have to actually work better than your competitor’s products. The former is pretty obvious, but the latter is pivotal if you want to turn first-time buyers into repeat customers. That’s why terpenes are the go-to ingredient if you want enhanced flavors, aromas, and effects.
Today, the effects we’re talking about are energy and motivation. Read on and discover which terpene blends will give your customers the energy and motivation they’re looking for!

How Do Terpenes Make You Feel Energized and Motivated?
While it may sound too good to be true, terpenes really can help boost energy and even motivation. They do this by interacting with different brain receptors. Some terpenes even affect multiple parts of the brain and nervous system simultaneously, which is why certain terpenes have a long list of effects.
If you want a more detailed explanation of how terpenes make us feel things, click here.
It’s well understood that certain compounds help us feel more energized (caffeine, ashwagandha, tea, etc.). So, it’s not hard to believe that certain terpenes can help us feel more energized as well. Some terpenes, like limonene, do this by elevating our moods. Others, like beta-caryophyllene, may promote energy by increasing the oxygenation of the brain. Fortunately, unlike many traditional stimulants, terpenes won’t leave you feeling jittery or anxious.
Motivation is a trickier effect. It’s not exactly an emotion, it’s more a frame of mind. It’s a combination of biology, psychology, and even social influences that helps us start and maintain goal-oriented behavior. While each person is ultimately responsible for motivating themselves to complete various tasks, it’s naïve to think we don’t all rely on certain products to help us accomplish said tasks.
Some of us need energizing products like coffee and aromatherapy. Not only do these products give us more energy, but they can also help enhance focus. People also reach for products that help promote elevated moods or even creative mindsets (like certain types of supplements or cannabis products). The key to products that enhance motivation seems to be a combination of energy, focus, and creativity. The synergy of those effects gives consumers the right frame of mind to tackle old projects that have been on the back burner or even to think outside the box and try something new.
That being said, let’s look at five terpene blends that will help you, and your customers, gain energy and motivation
Mimosa Can Boost Energy, Focus, and Elevate Mood
This terpene blend takes advantage of the flavor, aroma, and effects of the Mimosa cannabis strain, without any of the cannabinoids. That means both cannabis and non-cannabis products can take advantage of this mouthwatering blend.
The terpene profile of Mimosa is primarily made up of d-limonene, myrcene, beta-caryophyllene, and linalool. These isolates combine to create a blend that’s bright and sunny, reminiscent of tropical citrus fruits like oranges and lemons with subtle earthy, sour flavors. So, if you were imagining the brunch-favorite beverage, you’re not far off.
The effects of this blend are powerful and perfect for anyone needing to run errands, multitask, or maintain a laser-like focus. It’s both uplifting and euphoric with a subtle energetic buzz.
Berry Gelato May Help Unlock Creativity
Whether you’re trying to move past a creative block or if you’re trying your hand at a new creative endeavor, Berry Gelato may be just the thing to get you going. Many terpenes that enhance creativity are also uplifting, energetic, or even help boost focus. This blend definitely fits that bill by encouraging free-flowing thoughts and out-of-the-box ideas.
It’s dominant terpenes are Limonene, Myrcene, Beta-Caryophyllene, and Linalool. While this blend shares some of the same dominant terpenes as Mimosa, their flavors and aromas are strikingly different. Imagine...well, imagine eating Berry Gelato!
While this blend is based on the cannabis strain named Berry Gelato, it’s flavor is still reminiscent of the same dessert. Sweet, fruity notes with mouthwatering berry flavors. Unlike the dessert, however, it also has pine and herbal aromas subtly woven throughout that help promote focus and alertness.
Platinum OG Promotes Laser Focus and a Sense of Calm
If you can’t immediately imagine the taste or smell of Platinum OG, you’re not alone. However, once you experience its unique flavor and effects, it’s not a blend you’ll soon forget. One of the biggest drawbacks to traditional stimulants is that they can sometimes leave you feeling anxious and jittery. This is where Platinum OG really shines. For anyone looking for enhanced focus with a sense of calm, Platinum OG is the new go-to terpene blend.
Its dominant terpenes are Limonene, Myrcene, Beta-Caryophyllene, and Linalool. The flavor is a unique bouquet of herbal, pine, and citric notes with a refreshing finish that’s both earthy and minty.
While the Platinum OG cannabis strain is perhaps more suitable for evening use because of its powerful relaxation effects, it’s still described as an Indica-dominant hybrid that hits like a Sativa. Once we isolated the specific terpenes in that strain, we were able to create a blend that’s both incredibly relaxing and invigorating.
Super Lemon Haze Will Elevate Mood and Motivation
If you need to shift your attitude to get motivated, Super Lemon Haze is the blend for you. This is another strain-inspired blend that takes all the flavor and effects of a cannabis favorite without any of the psychoactive effects. If you’re wanting to give your cannabis products a motivational boost, however, this blend will absolutely do the trick.
The terpene profile of this blend is primarily made up of beta-caryophyllene, terpinolene, humulene, and myrcene. That gives Super Lemon Haze a zesty experience that’s citrusy with a sweet finish. In reality, though, that’s putting it a bit too simply. It’s also sharply tart (like lemon head candy), but it also has pine notes and a peppery finish.
The Super Lemon Haze experience is pretty unforgettable as well. All those phenomenal flavors and aromas help to boost your mood and put a pep in your step while simultaneously reducing fatigue, anxiety, and stress. We don’t know about you, but that sounds like the perfect recipe for motivation to us.
Jack Energizes While Enhancing Creativity and Focus
While the Jack Herer cannabis strain is described as blissful, clear-headed, and creative, this terpene blend...is pretty much exactly like that too. The Jack terpene blend is invigorating without being overpowering and promotes the perfect combination of creativity and focus.
This blend has a particularly unique ratio of isolates. Its dominant terpenes are Terpinolene, Beta-Caryophyllene, Limonene, and Myrcene. While these are all fairly common isolates, terpinolene is usually found in much smaller amounts. However, here it makes up an impressive 39% of the overall blend. This unique combination of isolates gives it a pungent, spicy aroma that still manages to be sweet and sour with sharp citrus and pine notes.
It promotes motivation by boosting energy and focus, but it will also help you approach projects with new ideas and out-of-the-box thinking. While many consider this blend the perfect antidote to creative road-blocks, it might be more accurate to say it promotes optimistic thinking. Where you might have seen only obstacles before, Jack helps unlock your mind to see new opportunities.
Prepare for Everything That 2021 Has to Offer
Whether you’re creating beverages and edibles or vapes and aromatherapy products, infusing them with blends that promote energy and motivation will help you AND your customers crush those 2021 goals. Even skincare items or nootropic supplements can benefit from invigorating terpenes like the ones above. 2021 is all about breaking free from old habits and old ways of thinking, so don’t sleep on these blends.
