Limonene is a citrusy terpene with fresh, sweet aroma. Strains known for their content of Limonene include Mendocino Purps, The White, and Super Lemon Haze. Isolated Limonene can be naturally sourced from a variety of citrus fruits, including grapefruit, lime, lemon, and orange. Limonene is considered to be a potent antibacterial, antifungal, and anticancer agent. Clinical use has included the employment of Limonene to dissolve gallstones and relieve gastrointestinal reflux/heartburn. Recent studies are focused on Limonene’s ability to destroy breast-cancer cells. Limonene effects cell permeability, and is able to absorb quickly into the bloodstream while also increasing the absorption levels of other terpenes.

Terpenes 101

What are they used for?

While isolated terpenes have many diverse applications, they are primarily used for product development and formulations. Because of their high purity, they can be used to create custom terpene blends to be added to other extracts, tinctures, edibles, topicals and much more.

Not only do terpenes create the aroma of the plants but they also contribute to the therapeutic properties. By adding specific terpenes, you can achieve specific effects from your products such as uplifting, calming, pain relief, etc.

Full spectrum terpene blends create synergistic effects that are often referred to as the entourage effect. Other companies sell premixed formulas that lack transparency and prevent creating custom blends. If you’re looking to create proprietary terpene blends, purchasing isolated terpenes is the only solution.

How do I use them?

Our terpenes can be used in many different product types such as concentrates, edibles, tinctures, topicals but they must be diluted to the appropriate concentrations. For most applications, a 1-3% concentration by volume is adequate but can vary depending on the terpene blend and desired effects. Certain terpenes are more potent than others and they must be handled with care. When using isolated terpenes be sure to use the appropriate skin protection, eye protection and operate in a well ventilated area.

Where do your terpenes come from?

Our terpenes are derived from many different, all natural sources. There are over 30,000 terpenes in nature and they are not unique to only one species of plant.

For example, alpha pinene is the most prevalent terpene and can be found in thousands of different plants. The molecules themselves are identical no matter what plant they come from. Some people argue about the importance of the source of the terpenes but once the molecules are isolated, there is virtually no difference.

High purity warning labels

There are extensive warning labels on our products because they can be dangerous at high purities. Each terpene has different properties and needs to be handled accordingly. With the proper dilution, our terpenes can be used in many different applications. A similar example is nicotine. Nicotine at high concentrations can be fatal but once diluted, it can be used in many ways (inhaled, sublingual, etc). We simply ask that you respect the high purity compounds and handle them in accordance with their MSDS sheets available here..

How should I dilute them?

Terpenes mix well with other plant extracts, concentrates and oils. You can also dilute them with coconut oil, PG, PEG and more. Terpenes will homogenize with agitation and can be sped up by applying low heat. They are not water soluble so they must be diluted with other oils unless you use an emulsifying agent such as sunflower lecithin. For most applications, a 1-3% concentration by volume is adequate but can vary depending on the terpene blend and desired effects.

If you see terpenes for sale somewhere else that does not show these "scary" warnings, one of two things is occurring:

1) The product is NOT high enough purity to warrant a legal warning (when diluted, terpenes are safe enough to ingest and do not need warnings)

2) The company is in violation by not displaying the proper safety information to you. Proceed at your own risk!
