That’s it. There are no fillers, no botanically derived terps, and no additional isolates. We’ve selectively bred each plant for maximum flavor and aroma yield. Plus, our terps are extracted within 30 minutes of harvest through a unique solventless process to preserve those unique and delicate volatiles. So you get only what nature intended.
Our #1 priority is to preserve the flower’s maximum aromatic potential. We extract the live flower within 30 minutes of them being harvested.
Terps are sensitive to heat, light, and oxygen. So we immediately perform a custom solventless extraction right there on the farm to drastically increase volatile capture and better preserve the delicate flavor and aroma compounds.
Immediately after extracting from the hemp biomass - we pour, filter, and freeze the resulting essential oil to lock-in the freshness.
From there, the oil is refined through molecular distillation to remove the undesirable plant compounds such as chlorophyll, lipids, and waxes. You know that typical “hay” smell from hemp? That’s what we’re removing.
Premium quality terpenes for affordable prices. Fully compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill. Terplandia powered by Abstrax.
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room.
Were our terpenes extracted from live hemp flower? Absolutely.
Do they taste and smell like “live resin” terpenes? Yes, they are exactly what you’d expect (except they’re only a fraction of the cost).
Not only that, but they're fully compliant and grown specifically for their flavor and aroma.
Live resin is a honey-like concentrate created with fresh frozen canna and extracted using a hydrocarbon extraction method (typically butane). The plants are kept frozen throughout the extraction and they skip the traditional drying, curing, and trimming phases of harvest.
Live resin is a canna concentrate. “Live resin terps” would imply that the terpenes were extracted from a live resin concentrate, but that almost never happens. It doesn’t make economic sense and its not what you think you’re buying.
Don’t be fooled by bogus marketing and, more importantly, don’t spend extra money on mislabeled hemp-derived terpenes. Our Hemp-Derived Terpenes offer “live resin” quality without “live resin” prices.
Whether you’re looking to completely infuse your products with the flavor and aroma of hemp, or if you’re looking to blend HDT with BDT to create something brand new, our Hemp-Derived Terpenes are a great way to add authenticity.
Add a little (or a lot). By adding hemp terpenes as a base note, you gain that authentic flavor and aroma found in the live flower.
By reintroducing terpenes to your distillate (or other concentrates) you gain back the full Entourage Effect.
Infuse your pre-rolls with hemp terps to push the experience over the edge. The earthy flavor and aroma adds depth.

Just as the name implies, these are a hemp extract specifically refined for maximum flavor and aroma. There are no cannabinoids (not even CBD) so you’re only getting the aromatic goodness.
Hemp-Derived Terpenes are another way to elevate your brand portfolio by offering unique products to drive growth across multiple applications.
Our hemp genetics were selectively bred for maximum flavor and aroma yield. With each successive generation of breeding, we’re able to produce hemp with more and more unique aromatics. It’s really come a long way since the George Washington days.
The short answer is that these are exactly like what you're thinking of by saying "live resin" terpenes, but "live resin" terpenes are improperly named in the first place.
This can get confusing so here's the shorthand: Live Resin is a brand name, live resin is a cannabis concentrate, but "live resin terpenes" are a total misnomer. Here's why.
Live resin is a honey-like cannabis concentrate created with fresh frozen cannabis and extracted using a hydrocarbon extraction method (typically butane). The plants are kept frozen throughout the extraction and they skip the traditional drying, curing, and trimming phases of harvest. The plants must remain frozen otherwise the heat will destroy the volatile flavor and aroma compounds and, additionally, they’ll carry over unwanted water.
"Live resin terps" would imply that the terpenes were extracted from a live resin cannabis concentrate, but that almost never happens. It doesn’t make economic sense and its not what you think you're buying.
The brand name Live Resin refers to steam-distilled hemp-derived terpenes. They are not extracted from a live resin concentrate.
So yes, these are steam-distilled hemp-derived terpenes like other "live resin" terpenes. Except ours are distilled from FRESH (never frozen) live flower and further refined using molecular distillation.
Our Hemp-Derived Terpenes are created from an extraction of live hemp flower. They contain the full range of terpenes, aldehydes, esters, ketones, thiols, alcohols, etc, etc. It is a very "full" flavor profile.
On the other hand, our botanically-derived terpenes are a formulation based on our industry-leading analytics. We use hundreds of different flavor/aroma compounds to recreate the sensorial experiences of cannabis/hemp. Meaning they’re very, very similar, but still a different experience.
This often leads to the inevitable question: which one is better?
Neither! They are both tools to get the job done. HDT could be the velvet hammer you've been looking for to make authentically dank cannabis products or to add additional dank earthy/herbal notes to your favorite blends. HDT and BDT both have their place in the market.
Just like any other terpenes! Hemp-Derived Terpenes are another way to elevate your brand portfolio by offering unique products to drive growth across multiple applications.
Use them to flavor your distillate/concentrates, add dank flavor to your edibles, infuse your pre-rolls and flower, etc, etc.
For a real kick, try combining them with our botanically-derived terpenes (specifically the Cloudburst Series). That’s a door with a lot of opportunity behind it. Check out the answer to question 5 below for ideas, suggestions, and more info.
Oh yeah, absolutely. We offer a wide range of botanical terps so you can create some truly unique combinations.
Here are three of our favorite ideas:
Example One: There is a growing trend of products that use flavorful botanically-derived terpenes (like our Cloudburst Series) with hemp-derived terpenes. The hemp provides dank earthy base notes, while the botanically-derived Cloudburst terps give extreme fruity/dessert flavors.
Example Two: Try combining our hemp terps with the Native Series. One criticism of HDT is that it doesn’t always contain the full gassy, skunkyness that you’d expect from CDT… but the Native Series does! Grab our gassiest Native Series profile (King Louie XIII) and add it to the HDT to create some seriously dank flavor.
Example Three: Combine ideas one and two. Use HDT as the “base” of the flavor. Then layer in the gassy cannasulfurs from the Native Series to give it that classic skunky cannabis aroma. Finish it off with the extreme fruity/dessert flavors of the Cloudburst Series. “Full” flavor and aroma doesn’t even come close to adequately explaining how awesome this combo is.
Each collection does something different.
