Creating e liquids from thick herbal concentrates is gaining traction in Australia as more and more people want to vape their herb on the go and with discretion. I am constantly trying to learn and source new and innovative products/brands trying to make a difference in the industry. This is how Farm to Vape entered my world, a very nice customer of mine gave me a heads up and my research began. Founded in 2014 (Virginia, USA), with the goal of perfecting their herbal e liquids via a range of thinners and strain specific terpenes kits (non-cannabinoid derived).
Terpenes can easily be described as flavour molecules and are the part of plant that is responsible for scent. They can be found in a variety of plants, fungi as well as some bugs and are also forms of communication. Terpenes are used by plants to attract pollinators, repel herbivores and attract predators of said herbivores – basically a great defence mechanism. In humans, terpenes can enhance the therapeutic effects (as well as adding flavour) of herbal remedies.
So why use terps? Terpenes extracted from plants have a myriad of uses; flavour enhancement, cleaning agents, medical remedies and skincare. Certain extraction methods can damage fragile terpenes (and flavour) within herbs hence the addition of terps back into the oil concentrate. Terpenes found within the Cannabis plant can be extracted directly from the Cannabis plant (very expensive) or can be extracted from a variety of other plants, herbs and fruits (more economical and most importantly legal!). Synthetic terps are also available but are produced in a lab by chemical manipulation and blending (not recommended and why would you bother?).
TIP: Farm to Vape Terpenes contain NO THC, CBD, PEG, PG, VG or MCT, it contains only 100% natural terpenes. It is NOT a thinner/liquidiser/emulsifier!
FARM TO VAPE GRAND DADDY PURPLE TERPENES
“Grand Daddy Purple (GDP) is an indica dominant cross between Purple Urkle and Big Bud that offers a deep, complex berry aroma.”
Farm to Vape carefully profiles a variety of strains to ascertain the individual terpenes within before individually extracting each and every one from a wide range of plants. All these individual natural terpenes are then blended together to recreate the strain profiled.
Farm to Vape has created a terpene line unlike any other I sell currently. Many brands create an all in one liquid that is used to create oil from concentrate whilst also adding flavour. These tiny little bottles are not to be used to thin out your concentrate in any way and are a super powerhouse of concentrated flavour. These terpenes can be added to distillate or to flavour your herbal oil that has already been thinned down from a concentrated form (Check out Farm to Vape Thinners).
There is a lot I like about this brand but the absolute fool-proof ease of using their products is probably the standout feature for me. Each box contains all you need (well, almost) from start to finish. Herbal material and boiling water I cannot provide! Farm to Vape has given options (strain specific) within their range of Terpenes for you to choose from and in the box you will find:
- 2ml bottle of Terpenes
- 5ml Boilable dropper Bottle
2ml may not seem like a large amount but keep in mind that these terpenes are super concentrated, and you are only required to use 1 drop per 1ml of vape oil or distillate. The entire process should take you no longer than 5 minutes either.
Farm to Vape even went all out on the provided glass dropper bottle. Dark blue in colour to keep your substance safe and with a cap that has been designed to withstand submersion into hot water. This is pretty important as you place the entire bottle in boiling water and things tend to expand under pressure. Farm to Vape actually also recommend that you place a lid atop the pot to further ensure your safety.
I am going to just give an overview to keep it short, but I wanted to show how easy the process is. Here goes…
- Place 1 drop terpenes per ml of oil into the glass dropper bottle
- Boil for 3 minutes in a pot with a lid
- Decant and vape.
TIP: Farm to Vape specifically recommends that you do not exceed the recommended their 1-2% ratio when adding terpenes.
