Terpenes are naturally forming chemicals that smell very strongly and have a long history of human use. Terpenes are a compound group of molecules that give cannabis its aroma and delicious taste. Cannabis consists of a large variety of chemicals and compounds. Well over a 100 of them belong to a large class of aromatic organic hydrocarbons known as terpenes. Terpenes also have many therapeutic benefits. The Indica and Sativa effects do not come from THC but from the terpenes that the cannabis plant provides. Therefor terpenes are the steering wheel to your high.
During the 19th century, chemical workers working on turpentine let to the name "Terpene". The Hydrocarbons general formula C10h16 found in that complex plant Product.
No, Terpenes itself do not contain any THC or CBD. However, Terpenes can be added to Cannabis products to improve the entourage effect, improve the product’s flavor profile and enhance the mood and resulting effect.
Abstrax prides itself on the quality and consistency of our terpenes. In order to ensure excellence, our products are derived from non-cannabis sources. Let's say we’re trying to extract some Myrcene. We can either use cannabis or some other plant matter for our source material. Many cannabis strains, like Fire OG, do have large amounts of Myrcene. But, each time a crop is grown, that batch will have different terpene concentration from every other batch of Fire OG. This variation means that standardization of source material when using pot is almost impossible. If we use cannabis during an extraction, every final product will be slightly different. That isn’t acceptable, as our products are guaranteed 100% pure. Non-cannabis sources not only have higher certain terpenes than their cannabis counterparts but also result in stronger final products. They’re also more cost-effective to source and process. This means that we can pass on savings to customers in addition to maintaining stellar quality.
The effects of terpenes would last about 8 hours if consumed with THC but if taken without THC the effects would last about 4 to 6 hours.

Simply speaking, essential oils are made up of a combination of terpenes. These terpenes give the various oils both their smell and therapeutic properties. Essential oils are renown for their potency. But a pure collection of an individual terpene is even more powerful. Some terpenes are so effective that they can actually cause irritation if used improperly or in an excessive amount. As such, Abstrax products should be used only in a professional and safe manner.
