What Is a Cutting Agent?
Otherwise known as TEC, this substance is commonly used as a carrying agent in commercial foods and fragrances. Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the FDA, it also serves as an emulsifier, meaning compounds blend smoothly and have high stability relative to alternate cutting agents. A cutting agent is a way to decrease the viscosity of your extract so that it can soak into the wick/coil of a vape pen without affecting the flavor of your final product. This helps prevent that gross burning wick taste we all hate. They work great for getting waxes, oils, really thick distillate, etc into a vape pen so that the consumer can enjoy the full cart without having any crystals/solids form. A diluent is also needed for any type of CBD isolate pen, this is because terpenes alone will not be able to dissolve the CBD isolate into a vapable solution. Thus in order to create a CBD isolate product for vaping, you must use a diluent such as MCT or TEC.
Why Abstrax' Cutting Agent - How Tec Temper Improves Your Products
Tec Temper has no odor by itself, even after vaporization, and no taste when used in appropriate amounts. The Abstrax TEC Temper contains a special blend of terpenes with antioxidant and anti-irritant properties to make for a smoother vaping experience. Other base liquids, like propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) like coconut oil, can serve a similar purpose relative to Tec Temper. However, these cheaper fillers all have pronounced effects. Our goal is to create the best vape-product tempering agent, and we’ve concluded that our Tec Temper is the most suitable product available. As mentioned above, unlike other diluents, our Tec Temper can not only be used for cutting THC distillate but also for CBD isolate.
