Stay on Top of Terpene Trends For Your Products
While most people think of sweet, creamy flavors in food and edible products (gum, cakes, and obviously ice cream—duh), we’ve got a surprise for you. Customers enjoy these aromas and flavors in a variety of products!
Terpene science lets us authentically recreate scents and tastes people know and love. This opens up an endless world of flavor possibilities for a variety of products. That being said, here are just a few ways you can provide these nostalgic flavors to customers.
Whether or not your products include cannabis, this is a phenomenal way to infuse your carts with some sweet, creamy flavors. Plus, many of these ice cream flavors provide additional effects that consumers love! We’re talking about effects like mood-elevation, relaxation, or even a boost of focus.
Okay, so maybe this isn’t that far of a stretch from food and edible products. However, the beverage industry is surprisingly diverse. You could add terpene blends to beverages like sports drinks, seltzer water, creamy coffee drinks, etc. We don’t know about you, but an iced coffee with a hint of Mint Chip Ice Cream flavor sounds pretty refreshing.
Yes, even skin care products can benefit from these flavors and aromas! From moisturizer to shower gel, these flavors seriously complement a world of skincare and personal products. Plus, if you use a blend with a healthy dose of D-Limonene you’ll get the added bonus of increased product absorption. Yes, you read that right. Not only can you infuse products with mouthwatering scents, terpenes can help increase their effectiveness too.
While this obviously includes boutique spa items like massage oils and candles, we’re thinking BIGGER. That means oil diffusers, room spritzers, vent clips for cars, pillow sprays, and more! If just the thought of ice cream flavors puts you in a good mood, imagine how effective aromatherapy products with these scents will be.
Technically, any of the above items could also include CBD (cannabidiol). However, we wanted to give this category a special spotlight. CBD is the cannabinoid of choice for consumers looking to relax, reduce inflammation, and basically just chill out without any psychoactive effects. If that’s the case, then it makes perfect sense to infuse them with sweet, creamy flavors like Pineapple Whip, Lime Sorbet, or even White Chocolate Boysenberry. Give your CBD consumers flavors they can’t get anywhere else!
Speaking of mouthwatering, classic flavors—here are a few of our favorite ice cream-inspired blends to satisfy consumers all summer long.
Mint Chip Ice Cream is The MUST-HAVE Blend of the Summer
Wow, we mentioned it earlier and now we CAN’T get it out of our minds. That’s because Mint Chip Ice Cream is one of those blends that satisfies your need for something chocolate yet refreshing! We’re talking cool menthol and perfectly rich notes of chocolate—yes, please!
With dominant terpenes like Beta-Caryophyllene, D-Limonene, Valencene, and Alpha-Humulene, this blend is surprisingly energetic. We think it would be perfect in an uplifting CBD vape product or even an invigorating body wash.
Rainbow Sherbert Satisfies Fruity Terpene Cravings
Yes, we include things like sherbert and sorbet in our ice cream discussions—and you should too! Those who prefer their sweet treats sans dairy deserve to indulge in phenomenal flavors just like everyone else. Plus, even die-hard dairy fans will find themselves inhaling deeply once they get a whiff of this terpene blend. That’s because our Rainbow Sherbert really knocks it out of the park! It’s got all the flavors of fruit-punch with the perfect balance of creamy goodness.
Plus, this is one of those magical blends that promotes relaxation and mood elevation all-in-one! Rainbow Sherbert infuses products with calming sedation (Thanks, Myrcene!) and a brighter attitude. We could easily see this becoming the next go-to flavor for a variety of beverages (teas, sports drinks, etc.) or even summer-inspired vape flavors.
Pineapple Whip Is The Tropical Terpene Blend Customers Crave
Feeling nostalgic for that deliciously sweet, refreshing, pineapple treat from back in the day? Our Pineapple Whip terpene blend will satisfy that craving and keep consumers coming back for more! If you’re in the mood for tropical flavors like freshly cut pineapple and green melon, this blend is a no-brainer. As an added bonus, the creamy notes create a mellower, rounder finish that’s perfect for dessert—or any other time of day.
You may assume this blend would be loaded with D-Limonene, and that isolate DOES make up roughly 21% of the overall blend. However, Myrcene (28%) makes up the majority. Additionally, the amount of Alpha-Pinene is roughly the same as Limonene. These surprising ratios give Pineapple Whip some seriously uplifting and calming effects. Honestly, this blend is so freaking delicious it’ll be a hit in ANY product. The possibilities are limitless!
Strawberry Cheesecake Is A Sweet Terpene Indulgence
Sometimes less is more...but other times you just want MORE. So, for days when you want to have your cheesecake and eat it too, our Strawberry Cheesecake blend won’t disappoint. Plus, now non-cannabis consumers can sample the delicious flavor and aroma of this strain without consuming cannabinoids. That being said, this blend does absolutely beautiful things when used in cannabis products.
Regardless of whether your products contain cannabis, however, this blend will give consumers a mouthwatering hit of sharp cheesecake flavor with the perfect sweetness of ripe berries. This tart, creamy blend feels like a decadent dessert without adding any calories. Plus, this complex terpene blend leaves consumers feeling elevated and relaxed.
